General RV Center has acquired Stoltzfus RV’s and Marine, an RV and boat dealership in Pennsylvania.
Located west of Philadelphia in West Chester, Pennsylvania, this is General RV’s second supercenter in the state and 17th location nationwide. General RV also has an Elizabethtown Supercenter near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, that includes RV sales, service and parts.
General RV said that with this acquisition, the company is positioned to increase opportunities to serve RV enthusiasts and owners across the region, including Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and New York.
“As a long-time, family-owned business, we are committed to strategic growth and further enhancing our current and new customers’ purchasing and ownership experience,” said General RV President Loren Baidas. “This means identifying new locations and acquisitions of dealerships who share our operational values. This location and the current team there align with our goal to not only grow in key markets, but continue to be the leader in the RV industry on all levels – customers, employees and community.”
The West Chester location has two buildings that include an in-store parts department, a dedicated pre-delivery inspection facility, more than 20 service bays and a showroom with RVs on display. The facility includes 16 acres of new and used RVs from travel trailers to motorhomes. Existing employees will remain with the store as General RV explores opportunities to grow the business.
“There are plenty of reasons why we are excited to join the General RV family,” said Bob Cox, former president and CEO of Stoltzfus RV’s and Marine and current General RV operations manager. “In the process of considering a transition, we wanted to partner with a company that had a great reputation in the industry and held the same values as our family. General RV was the obvious choice.”
This is the third new location General RV has announced in 2023. Earlier this year, General RV broke ground on a second dealership South Weber, Utah, and its first-ever supercenter in Salisbury, North Carolina. Both of these locations are expected to open in late 2024.
