Camping World Holdings has made two acquisitions of dealerships.
American RV located in Grand Rapids, Mich., and Jack Sisemore Traveland in Amarillo, Texas, have joined the Camping World ranks.
“We remain focused on growth and customer service, as we expand in the Michigan market with the successful establishment of American RV joining the Camping World family,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman of Camping World. “We look forward to providing customers with top notch, one-stop shopping, that will fulfill all of their outdoor and RV needs; from thousands of accessories, to RV sales and service.”
Camping World currently operates a SuperCenter in Houghton Lake and retail accessory stores in both Belleville and Grand Rapids, Mich. With the American RV acquisition, the Grand Rapids retail accessory store will now convert into a full-service Camping World SuperCenter, further expanding the market footprint, and increasing Camping World’s current presence in the state of Michigan.
“Our two organizations have such strong synergies in terms of customer service, product offerings and geographic presence and we look forward to continuing Jack Sisemore Traveland’s high standards of quality and service, while solidifying our leading position in the state,” Lemonis said of the Texas acquisition. “Camping World’s customers will now enjoy greater convenience throughout the state of Texas while Jack Sisemore Traveland’s customers will benefit from expanded product and service capabilities and a nationwide network of dealerships and accessory stores.”
Camping World currently operates full-service SuperCenters in Anthony, Cleburne, Houston, Lubbock, Mesquite, San Antonio, Sherman, and Tyler, Texas and retail accessory stores in both Denton and Fort Worth. The Jack Sisemore Traveland acquisition further expands the market footprint, increasing Camping World’s current presence in the state of Texas to eleven locations.
“This acquisition is yet another step in our continued growth in the RV industry and our commitment to service and product excellence,” said Brent Moody, chief operating officer of Camping World and Good Sam. “The ability to expand in a region is obviously a great benefit to any business as it leads to a broader audience and a bigger pool of customers, ultimately increasing our profitability.”
