Lerch RV was born in Central PA
First, let us tell you about Lerch RV. Lerch RV had a straightforward beginning. Ed Lerch started in 1977 when he opened Seven Mountain Truck Caps and Lerch’s Arco gas station. Then in 1978, Ed changed the name of his business to the now well-known Lerch RV. With changing the business name, Lerch RV began to offer Prowler travel trailers & fifth wheels. Shortly afterward, Lerch RV began making Prowler’s top ten list of east coast dealerships.
Furthermore, in 1980, the dealership moved to a more prominent location— just west of Lewistown, near the Mifflin County Industrial Park entrance. Especially relevant with this move, the dealership became a full-service RV dealership. Hence, it sold travel trailers, fifth wheels, motorhomes, discontinued truck caps, and gasoline sales. The dealership was at this location during the 1980s and continued through the 1990s. While at this location, Lerch RV became a dealer of Winnebago, Southwind, Coleman, Tioga, Yellowstone, and Alpenlite RVs. Most noteworthy, in the early 90s, Lerch RV developed and built a small handful of customized travel trailers.
