The owner of an ultra high-end RV interior remodeling business in Sanford paid $5 million this week to buy the property his business occupies, property records show.
Donnie Myers, owner of Donnie Myers Luxury Coach, bought two contiguous parcels that add up to a bit over 10 acres from longtime friend David Hodgman, say people with knowledge of the two men. Myers declined to comment for this article and Hodgman did not return requests for comment.
Myers and Hodgman met a few years ago when Hodgman, who lives in Las Vegas, brought his RV to Myers to be serviced. Hodgman subsequently bought the parcels on Monroe Road and leased them to Myers for his RV business, said people who have done business with Myers.
Hodgman, who lived for a time in Central Florida, owns Southern Pride Trucking, which has a fleet of over 200 tractor trailers and is based in Las Vegas and San Diego.
The sale of the Donnie Myers Luxury Coach land was between Southern Pride LLC, of which Hodgman is the principal, and Donnie Myers Holdings LLC, on Nov. 10, property records show.
The RV property contains a 22,000-square-foot building where the motor coaches are worked on, a 5,000-square-foot office and a 2,000-square-foot site that serves as a guard area, people familiar with the layout said.
Myers only works on the highest end motor coaches, called Prevosts, which can cost several millions of dollars. He services them and remodels their interiors.
"Today's economy is encouraging the customer to consider remodeling their current coach as opposed to purchasing a new coach," Myers' website says. "If you own a Prevost, you're in luck, for your service needs and remodeling with Donnie Myers RV Service."
The company strives "to provide our customers with superior service and repair of their luxury motor coaches," the website says.
