ATV Displays With Attitude


Eye-catching displays help sell more ATVs

While rummaging through our collection of photos from our Top 100 Dealers, we noticed a theme among dealerships that specialized in ATVs and UTVs – many of them decided to bring the outdoors in. We saw lots of camo, foliage and even some humorous displays that we have no doubt helped with vehicle sales. Here are some of our favorites from the 2008 Top 100 roster:
