Camping World continues expansion with additional acquisitions

One of America’s leading recreational vehicle and outdoor retailers Camping World has announced further expansion of its business with a series of acquisitions.

The Lincolnshire, Illinois-based company recently confirmed it has agreed a deal to acquire Lee’s Family Trailer in Windham, Maine. The deal, expected to be completed by April 2021, is part of Camping World’s long term plan to establish recreation dealer platforms across the United Sates.

CEO and chairman of Camping World Holdings, Marcus Lemonis, said: “It’s our intention with acquisitions like this to complete our goal of operating our recreational dealer platform in all 48 contiguous states. This achievement not only creates more convenience for our nearly 5.5 million unique customers but sets the stage for a web centric process to sell both new and used RVs nationwide completely online.”

The new Maine facility will transition to the Camping World brand with a target open date of mid-April and be the first of at least two locations in the state. The SuperCenter will include a wide range of new and used RVs from top manufacturers in addition to a full assortment of RV and outdoor products and accessories.

It adds to additional recent agreements Camping World has made to acquire the two dealership locations of Flagg RV in Uxbridge and West Boylston, Massachusetts, and additional land in Griswold, Connecticut for a planned future location.

Marcus Lemonis added: ““Flagg RV has been a family owned and operated business in the RV industry for over 30 years and brings a team with great passion and energy to our company. We will continue the pursuit of Flagg RV’s key initiatives which include expansion into the states of Rhode Island and Connecticut. As I have stated before, we remain committed to locations in all 48 contiguous states and accelerating our goal of increasing market share.”
