Motorhomes of Texas was Founded in 2003 by David Robertson. David graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a Double major in Marketing and Communications in 1991.

After graduating from SFA, David began his career in 1993 working in the Motorhome industry for Foretravel. David was influenced by his mentor Phil Cornelius, to get involved in the Motorhomes industry as a sales associate for Foretravel. David was their top sales associate 9 out of 10 years in the country. His experience working for Foretravel introduced him to the incredible industry of high-end luxury motorcoaches. David has an amazing love for people, and this helped him create not only an incredible customer base, but also amazing friendships throughout the industry.

When Foretravel decided in 2003 to close the factory sales department and seek out independent dealerships for sales, David, with Ray Fore's blessing, decided it was best to branch out and open his own Motorhome dealership in Nacogdoches. Motorhomes of Texas opened its doors in the Fall of 2003, and in its first year sold over 100 luxury Motorhomes. David's business model centered around selling luxury motorhomes on consignment, where he invested his years of sales experience to help connect buyers with Sellers in the market across the United States and Canada.

As Motorhomes of Texas was continuing to grow, David decided it was time to expand a New Division of MOT (Motorhomes of Texas,) in the Spring of 2018. David opened a new dealership in Nacogdoches called RV Outfitters of Texas (RVO). RVO is a dealership that focuses on selling New 5th wheels, Travel Trailers, and pre-owned inventory , and consignment inventory. In RVO's first year of business, RVO sold over 100 high-end RV units and became known nationally as a top 10 dealer for Thor Industries and the manufacturer KZ. David implemented at RVO the same vision in line with its parent company, Motorhomes of Texas, to always take care of the customer. RVO seamlessly implemented these values and has seen exciting opportunities to sell units in the Czech Republic, Hawaii, and to customers all over the United States.

David credits and states that he is blessed with an extraordinary team of technicians, sales associates, and staff that work together as a family. With over 75 individuals at Motorhomes of Texas and RV Outfitters of Texas, we operate daily to provide our customers with the most amazing customer service experience possible.
