Bob LaFreniere As Sales Manager here at Diamond RV Centre I am dedicated to helping the sales staff makes purchasing an RV a fun, happy and affordable experience. I absolutely enjoy my job as though it was my first day here and cannot believe I’m nearing the 5 years anniversary with Diamond RV Centre. My favorite part of what I do is seeing families start their journey with us into the camping world. I have been in sales management for over 3 decades which has surely helped mold me into the person I am today. My wife of 30 years and 3 kids have got to grown up into young adults by the way of learning hard work and dedication which is why my youngest son has now started his career here alongside me. I live local to Diamond RV Centre and find it very important to support the local community and will do the same for all of my customers. Please put your confidence in myself and Diamond RV Centre for all your camping needs.

Hello my name is DJ, I was born and raised in Belchertown, MA. As a local guy with strong family ties to the community, I chose to begin my professional life following in my father's footsteps as an auto technician. My son who is a freshman in high school loves camping, a pastime we share. Along with camping, one of my favorite hobbies is building cars and trucks, going to local car shows and cruise nights. later I expanded to Diamond RV in charge of internet sales and marketing, moving on to full time sales after the first year. Its hard to believe it has been six years already in an industry that I love. I come to work every day and make dreams come true. Seeing families make memories is the best career i could ask for.

Bruce Kain I started selling RV's in 2000. We did a great deal of camping when the children were young. They grew up, so I continued camping with my grandchildren. They also grew up and don't do much camping these days. I have been to the factories to see how RVs are made. I have also attended manufacturers training. I enjoy helping people find the right RV for their needs. I live in the woods on a small homestead with my dog Sid, my two horses, and a mule named Molly. I enjoy the outdoors and the camping lifestyle.

As a country girl at heart I love family, fun and freedom. For me and my family that means outdoor activities that include camping as often as possible. I met my husband, Rob while working as a bank teller. We have a big wonderful family that include Justin the lobsterman, Kyle and Amanda who will be attending college this year and our youngest Jacob the aspiring shortstop. Having worked in the hectic corporate world for many years I understand the stresses of work and the need to get away on vacation. I am thrilled to be working at Diamond RV and to have the opportunity to help make dreams come true.
