Calgary, Alberta is best known for its cowboy boots and rodeos, but it is truly a diverse city with an abundance of activities.  It’s a place where you can relish the great outdoors by day and enjoy world class cuisine and entertainment by night, as stated by travelalberta.com.  â€‹

With so many sites and attractions to see, there is one place you must stop by as you make you way on Highway #2.  Nestled between Calgary and Airdrie you'll find the beautiful dealership of Bucars RV.  


A Wonderful Start


Bucars RV Centre is proud as being the first dealership to open up shop in Calgary in 1959.  Its founder Stan Bucar had a successful history with the dealership before Bill Redmon and his family purchased it in 1989.

Stan Bucar’s success was attributed to his appreciation for trailers.  While Stan worked at Universal Ford as a young man, he purchased the dealerships very first trailer and his affinity for trailers grew.  As a savvy business man, Stan purchased North Hill Car Sales, to sell automobiles and Shasta Travel Trailers.  As his success with trailers continued to blossom he made the leap to focus on recreational vehicles.

In 1959, Stan decided to changed the dealerships name to Bucars Motors and the rest is history.
