Our History

We’ve been around for a long time, which means we’ve undergone some changes and gained valuable experience in the RV business, specific to the Kootenays.

Runners RV was started in 1989, the business flourished and over time, we outgrew our location. In 2007, we moved to and renovated our second location. In the spring of 2023 finished building our new state of the art purpose built RV dealership which is just off the Strip in Cranbrook. Here, we have plenty of room for our sales inventory, RV storage and customer parking.

Runners RV looks forward to a bright future helping new and repeat customers enjoy the camping and RV lifestyle.
