Note to forum members who have done business with Jim Turner and his family in Jeannette, PA; the Turner dealership is closed. Today I found some uncorroborated details from a nearby business who knew Jim and his employees.
Sometime since June of 2005 (when I was last there) Jim decided to close the business. The Turner dealership business assets were sold off at auction in October 2005. In addition, Jim's mother Eva, who had started the dealership with her husband Harold about 50 years ago, died in the summer of 2005.
The present listing for an Airstream dealer shows "Roger Williams Chrysler Dodge Jeep" at 125 Thebold St in Greensburg, PA, phone 724-837-2753. A call to that number was answered by a machine as Ranger Trailers, which is a trailer manufacturer in business at that location, properly spelled 125 Theobold
St, in Greensburg, PA, since 1969. (see www.rangertrailer.com)
. I'll try to go by today and report what I find out.
Note that "Roger Williams Chrysler Dodge Jeep" located in Weatherford, TX is an Airstream dealer. I called them and spoke with their general manager Dave Tidmore, who assured me it's not their business moving to western PA. This name confusion may be caused by an Airstream company database error.
I have appreciated having Jim and his employees' expert and honest service and it is unfortunate that they are gone. I wish them all luck in the future.
