RV Retailer Acquires Palm RV

RV Retailer has announced that Motor Home Specialist (MHS) was the No. 1 seller of new motorhomes by a single dealership in the U.S. for the seventh consecutive year in 2019. MHS was purchased by RV Retailer in 2018.

“I am proud of Donny O’Banion and the entire Motor Home Specialist team in Texas,” said Jon Ferrando, CEO and president of RV Retailer. “The achievement of a seventh consecutive year as the largest new motorhome dealer in the U.S. speaks to the team’s continued commitment to exceed expectations of motorhome customers.”

“I am thrilled that we were able to continue our reign for the seventh year in a row as the largest new motorhome dealer in the U.S. We couldn’t achieve our incredible sales levels without the dedication of all our associates at Motor Home Specialist and the support of our manufacturer partners,” said O’Banion, president of MHS. “I’m proud to be a part of RV Retailer, the RVR team’s support has been instrumental in our continued success.”

RV Retailer also announced it has signed an agreement to acquire Palm RV located in Fort Myers, Fla. The store will be rebranded RV One Superstores.

Upon closing of the Palm RV transaction in early March, RV Retailer will have 30 locations across seven states with more than 1,200 associates.  

“We have been focused on Florida as a key market from the day RV Retailer was formed, which makes it great for us to hit our 30th store milestone in under two years with an acquisition in Florida,” said Ferrando. “Fort Myers is an excellent RV market with over 50 RV parks and campgrounds along the Southwest Florida coastline. … We thank Tom Wegge for selecting us to acquire Palm RV. The Wegge family has an incredible history in the RV business.”
