About bishsrv

Bish’s RV Super Center is dedicated to provide quality products and services that exceed the expectations of our customers, and to create an atmosphere where our customers can enjoy a positive experience as friends of our family business. When Bish's RV first opened its doors in Idaho Falls 17 years ago, we had no intention of evolving into the largest RV dealer in the State of Idaho. Rather, it was owner Tadd Jenkins' goal to incorporate the same ideals that had been instilled in him by his family since he was a small boy. Among these were honesty when dealing with others, treating others like you would want to be treated, and always be available to provide service when it is needed.
