Oregon Light Truck & RV, Inc. was founded by Dave Elder and Scott Downing in 1990. Dave had been in the logging industry for 25 years and understood due to the economy that it was time to start fresh. Scott was a 20 year old kid with a lot of great ideas and business management experience. He was also getting married to Dave's oldest daughter Julie!

Dave and Scott believed that the valley needed somewhere that specialized in trucks and motorhomes. Somewhere that focused on the needs of the customer and not the up sale. For the past 20 years we have been doing just that. Taking care of our customers honestly and treating them as we want to be treated.

Scott has left us to pursue his dream of being a fireman. He is currently a Fire Captain/EMT with Fire District 3 and loves every minute of it. He is still married to Julie and they have two handsome sons.

Dave is still here everyday taking care of customers and overseeing the mechanics. He is joined in the office by Katie his youngest daughter (and if you ask her,his favorite daughter!) Also coming with Dave to work most days is the trusty Oregon Light Truck shop dog Tess.

Katie is married to Clint one of the mechanics. They have twin boys that stayed at the shop everyday for the first 5 months of their lives. Since then Carmen who just happens to be Dave's wife of 40 years, Julie, Shannon, and Katie's mom, Scott and Clint's mother in law, (are you keeping up?) retired and watches the babies everyday.

Tyler is Scott's son and Dave's grandson. He graduated from Eagle Point High School in 2014 and is attending Santa Clara University studying Political Science with an Emphasis in Legal Studies. Tyler works here during the summer, helping to manage our technology needs and assisting in the front office.

Camron is another of our mechanics; he is married and has a four month old baby boy. Cam's interests include falconry, and diesel mechanics. 

James is our newest mechanic, he enjoys repairing and racing dirtbikes on his days off. We are excited to have him on the team.
