Hitch RV has acquired Holiday on Wheels located in Columbia, S.C.
Additionally, Gary Davis, who has been the backbone of Holiday on Wheels for more than 50 years, has announced his retirement.
“We are pleased to be the oldest RV dealer in South Carolina,” said Davis.
Founded by his father G. Bellinger Davis, Jr. in 1964, what started as a part time venture to supplement an educator’s income became a full-time RV business.
“In our 55-plus years, the one constant has been our customers,” said Davis. “Today, each one is as special as the first one in 1964.”
“We are pleased to carry the torch going forward of such a great company along with the tradition and values that the Davis family has maintained,” said Tim Waters, co-owner of Hitch RV. “I’m glad that Gary feels confident in me to allow us to continue his vision, furthermore, allowing him to retire and enjoy time with Kelly.”
Hitch RV will continue to carry the brands that Holiday on Wheels has carried along with adding a few other core brands.
Hitch RV currently also has locations in Berlin, N.J., and Milford, Del.
“We will be bringing our best practices and processes along with higher stocking levels and our best price guarantee,” said Waters. “Our aggressive pricing structure allows us to provide customers with affordable fun.”
“The future is very bright for Hitch RV,” said Donna Levesque, co-owner of Hitch RV. “We have developed the resources to continue to acquire additional locations. … Sadly, the days of mom-and-pop locations are fading away and it’s to the point that growth is the only option.”
