50 Years of Friendships Built in Recreation
Greg Nikkel, General Manager of NR Motors says gardening is the number one form of recreation. However, that is just part of the diverse lines of recreation and equipment products available at the family-run business which is entering its 50th year of serving Prince George.
From RVs and marine to a wide range of equipment such as John Deere, Stihl and Avant – plus all the accessories – NR Motors has your seasonal recreation needs covered in one location. Fifty years ago the business began as a small service station that eventually added RVs with “For Sale” signs. It grew into a greatly respected RV/marine dealer and the NR Motors name stuck. In fact, NR Motors has the largest selection of recreational products and equipment in Northern B.C.!
“We’ve been very fortunate, products for recreation are products people want,” Greg says of his family’s business. “My mom and dad still work here every single day along with my sister Donna who manages our parts department. It’s very much a family business.”

There is no sales person following you around at NR Motors – unless that’s your ideal shopping experience. Greg and his family believe in treating customers with respect and courtesy whether it’s on the showroom floor, at the service department or in the fully-stocked ski shop. They let people explore in a relaxed atmosphere. The NR Motors team feels it’s their job to help customers get exactly what they want and with some staff members being part of the business for more than 30 years their experience helps customers make highly-informed decisions.
“We have everything for your recreation and equipment needs,” notes Greg. “For some that means camping so we have RVs, tent trailers, campers and more, plus all the equipment someone might need. For boaters, we have fishing boats, speed boats and ocean boats along with water skis, wakeboards, life vests, downriggers and more.”
In the winter, NR also offers full lines of Nordic, Alpine and snowboarding equipment as well as the accessories and service required. Then of course there is the large selection of landscaping and gardening equipment to meet your needs for any time of year whether it’s a snowblower, backhoe or a lawn tractor.
Plus the in-house parts and service departments ensure your purchase will always be taken care of in the right way, by fully trained professionals who understand all aspects of their products.
Having been part of the community for 50 years means the Nikkels find it important to stay involved and give back to Northern B.C.
“It’s home. There’s 50 years of friendships, customers, school and business here.” Greg says. “Everybody has their thing that they like to get involved with. Whether it’s the Ness Lake Bible Camp, local snow mobile clubs, motocross clubs, ski/snowboard teams, fishing derbies or great charities like the Cops for Cancer and others.”
Like Greg, most of the more than 65 staff members at NR Motors grew up and live in Prince George, so it’s important to the entire team give people a good deal and take care of them.
