WillistonHerald in North Dakota reports that Rugby Homes, in business since 1963 and selling RVs in Williston for six years, has hired a full time salesman to sell modular and manufactured housing for the North Dakota-based company. The oil boom in the area, as we have reported previously, has created an acute shortage of housing with people living in cars and RVs in parking lots and parks. Says Gary Kirchofner, Rugby’s owner: “We’re a full dealer. We’re not just somebody that is selling the houses from out of the area and bringing them in and dropping them off. We’re there to sell them and service them.” Rugby’s man-on-the-scene is Bryan Amburgy (pictured here), who lives on site.
