Minnesota is a beautiful state full of natural beauty just waiting for you to enjoy.
RV camping offers a different way to see the outdoors compared to other types of camping such as car camping and backpacking. When RV camping, you get to still enjoy many luxuries such as a comfortable bed, a kitchen for cooking and a place to escape poor weather.
If you plan on getting yourself an RV, Minnesota doesn’t lack in great RV dealers to choose from. We’ve had the pleasure of meeting many of them face to face and hearing from our readers about their favorites.
Here are our picks for the 10 Best RV Dealers in Minnesota
Hilltop Camper and RV is a 3rd generation family business that started in 1951. They actually have the most reviews and highest rating of any Minnesota RV Dealer and for good reason.
Their large inventory means you will find exactly what you are looking for, whether it’s new, used, large or small. The sales staff is friendly, informative and not pushy in any way at all.

Now The Worst
I hate to add this part, but when a company completely fails their customers, I think that needs to be addressed as well.
I actually have a family member who bought a brand new RV off of the lot at Noble RV in Madelia.
Long story short:
On their first camping trip this RV had a leak in the roof. So they looked at it closer and found that it had obviously been leaking while sitting in the lot because the wall was soft and so was the floor.
They brought it in to get checked out. Noble didn’t want to do anything more than stop the leak to begin with. But my family member kept pushing and pushing. Turns out there was mold and rot all over in the RV.
Rather than replace the RV, Noble kept trying to put them back into the RV with minimal repairs.
It took almost a year before the problem was resolved, and to call it resolved feels crazy. They had to pay extra to get a different RV, the local manager was unresponsive, the owners were demeaning and the entire experience was terrible. Noble tried to act as though it didn’t have anything to do with them pass it on to the manufacturer and the manufacturer did the same back to Noble. Nobody stepped up and took responsibility.
Every company will have problems at some point. What separates a good company from a bad one is what they do when problems arise. Do they fix the issue and make sure their customers are treated properly or do they try to save a buck and look for easy ways out?
Noble obviously took the money-saving route for them. Nobody should buy a brand new RV off the lot and find mold in it from a leak. My feelings are this RV should have been replaced immediately, I mean IMMEDIATELY!
