General RV Opens New RV Supercenter in Virginia

General RV Center has announced that its newest Supercenter in Ashland, Va., is open for business. General RV Ashland is a full-service dealership and features 500 RVs for sale, 40 service bays, and a large retail store with a wide selection of RV parts and camping accessories.

Located at 12500 Harley Club Drive, the Supercenter was built on property adjacent to General RV’s former dealership. The company had served the Richmond area from this location, off Interstate 95, since mid-2017.

“We are very proud to unveil our new Ashland Supercenter. It is the largest RV dealership in the mid-Atlantic area and the first of its kind on the east coast,” said Loren Baidas, president of General RV Center. “This premier facility will allow us to provide an industry-leading purchase, delivery, and ownership experience.” 

Although General RV has only operated in Virginia for two years, it is currently ranked as the No. 1 motorhome dealer for new motorhomes registered in Virginia, according to Statistical Surveys.

“With the new space, we can have a greater selection of motorhomes, travel trailers, and fifth wheels,” said General Manager Ed McNamara. “Customers appreciate our large selection of brands and floorplans but it’s our people that make the difference. Much of our business comes from customers who had a great experience and referred their friends.” 

General RV was founded by Abe Baidas in 1962 after he traveled west and discovered his passion for RVing. 

“Not only are we passionate about the RV lifestyle, we are passionate about taking care of our customers. That’s why we built this new Supercenter to better serve them,” said Bo Hurst, sales manager. “Whether they’re going camping in a pop up or a motorhome, we’ll be here with everything they need – from sales and financing to service and parts.”
