Welcome to Used RVs in Alvarado, TX

The O'Banion family has a long local history with deep roots in the Dallas/Fort Worth community and the automotive industry abroad. Doug O'Banion, founder of Used RVs, moved his family from Corpus Christi, Texas, to Arlington, Texas, in 1966. Doug was constantly thinking of ways to improve products in the automotive industry and later that year he invented the Port-O-Lift trailer. In 1976 Doug developed his second invention, the E-Z Fill Gas Cap.

The E-Z Fill Gas Cap eliminated the need to remove and replace the gas cap when filling up with fuel. The E-Z Fill Gas Cap was a huge success and was sold nationwide at various retailers such as Sears, Kmart, NAPA Auto Parts, and Pep Boys, just to name a few. The current version of this invention is now produced by Stant Manufacturing and its concept is often standard equipment on many new models of cars and trucks.

Through the years, Doug owned and operated various automotive dealerships and never lost sight of his true passion for virtually everything that cranks. In 1972, Doug’s love of motorcycles and Colorado summers put him in search of a new RV for his wife and four sons. He was surprised at how difficult it was to find an RV with a floor plan that suited his family’s needs. On a dare from a friend, he decided to build his own RV just the way he wanted it.

For the next 18 years, Doug owned and operated many businesses that included sales in mobile homes, RVs, cars, and boats. One car dealership in particular, aptly named "Mustang Specialist" sold only Ford Mustangs. Mustang Specialist built more than 3,000 custom and performance Mustangs over a ten-year period.

In 1994, Doug and his son Donny were visiting an auto auction in Ocala, Florida. After finding out that their plane ride home to Texas had been cancelled, Doug impulsively purchased a motor home at the auction because he was ready to “head to the house!” Somewhere between Florida and Texas, the idea of Used RVs was born. After returning to Texas, they sold the motor home and, oddly enough, took two motor homes in trade. It was settled, The O’Banions were going to become part of the motor home industry. In 1995, Doug sold off his remaining car dealership and so began a new chapter in his life and a life’s work for his family.

Used RVs was founded in 1996 when Doug, his wife Sharon, and his son Donny began selling pre-owned motor homes from a local RV storage location in Arlington, Texas. In late 1998, Doug purchased the property where Used RVs currently resides and on January 1st, 1999, hired Robert Brake, the company’s first full-time employee. Robert has since become the company’s general manager, a part owner, and a part of the O’Banion family, whether he likes it or not! Together, by selling tens of millions of dollars of quality pre-owned motor homes with huge discounts to families across the globe, they quickly made Motor Home

Specialist into one of the largest pre-owned motor home dealerships in the country.

In 2004, Doug took Used RVs in a new direction by becoming a franchise dealership for Travel Supreme, which later became Entegra Coach. During this time, Doug’s other sons Kelly and Tyler came on board full-time, soon followed by his son Patrick upon his return home from three combat tours in Iraq and 22 years of service in the USA Army Infantry. With the addition of Doug’s eldest grandson Bobby in 2012, MHSRV now has three generations of family involved in it’s day to day operations.

In order to handle their growing endeavor, The O’Banions began construction on a new service and delivery center and expanded their sales and office facilities. Used RVs became the #1 volume selling motor home dealership in Texas in 2007 and in 2008, became the first motor home dealership in Texas history to sell more Class A units as well as Class C units in a single year. This achievement has been duplicated every year since.

Since then, Used RVs has only grown. They now sell approximately 40% of all new motor homes sold in Texas and in late 2013, surpassed all other dealerships in total volume sales making Used RVs the *#1 volume selling motor home dealership in the world.
