A Family of Companies Built with Family Values
From its humble beginnings in the 1940’s, the Dobson family has always had its roots planted in Atlantic Canada business.
Although originally founded on trucking, today’s Dobson Group is focused firmly on retailing. In 1973, Leisure Time Sales Ltd was founded to sell Cygnet travel trailers and, under the direction of Danny and Derek Dobson, the company grew to become one of Atlantic Canada’s largest RV Dealerships. In 1989, with the acquisition of the local Chrysler dealership, Dobson Chrysler Dodge was formed and the two companies became the foundation of the family’s business growth.
David Dobson rejoined the family business in 1991 and took over the reins of RV World in Fredericton, quickly establishing itself with the local RV clientele. Today, brothers Danny, Derek & David oversee the Dobson Group which owns and operates RV dealerships in Saint John, Fredericton, and Moncton; automotive dealerships in Saint John and Sussex; and new home construction with Oakhill Homes in Fredericton and Saint John. In partnership with Prestige Homes, the Dobson Group is excited to be able to bring to Fredericton and Saint John the high quality modular homes that Prestige Homes has been famous for in other parts of Atlantic Canada and beyond.
