Camping World has made it’s next move acquiring Idaho-based RV dealer Nelson’s RVs this week. Camping World expressed interest in “aggressively” expanding into the Idaho market earlier in the month of April and has been successful with Nelson’s and the three dealerships in Boise area.
“We continue to seek acquisitions to leverage the progression of our brand and to provide a superior experience to customers across the country,” said Marcus Lemonis , Chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam . ” Tom Nelson and his team have served Idaho and Eastern Oregon with premier recreational vehicle services for over 33 years and we look forward to continuing their high standards of quality and service and solidifying our leading position in the state ofIdaho .”
Brent Moody , Chief Operating Officer of Camping World and Good Sam commented, “The Nelson family exemplifies the core values that are synonymous withCamping World and the way we run our business, and these standards will remain and guide us as we look toward the future.” Added Moody, “We will continue to operate the two Boise area locations as Nelson’s RV locations while rebranding the Caldwell location as a Camping World RV SuperCenter as we pursue our expansion in the area. We look forward to working with the management team to continue their success and take the businesses to the next level.”
Camping World is a huge brand, operating the largest network of RV retail locations in the United States (over 120) in 36 states and an e-commerce platform. We’ll be curious to see if the behemoth continues along this path of acquisition.
