After I saw a post that it was rumored RV World of Georgia was being acquired by Camping World (CW) I started doing a little research... It is true about RV World of Georgia being purchased by CW.
But what is even more interesting is CW's new "side by side" strategy in making acquisitions. CW is now acquiring dealerships near existing CW locations and not
renaming them as a CW. The following quote is from RV Business News
According to a press release, Camping World is actively seeking opportunities to acquire quality dealerships with strong management, brand recognition and a solid customer base in markets where Camping World has an existing presence, with its “side-by-side” strategy. The acquired businesses will continue to be operated by Camping World under their legacy name.
“With our ‘side-by-side’ strategy we are aggressively pursuing opportunities to expand market share, grow our database and add additional distribution points for our Good Sam portfolio in our existing markets,” said Brent Moody, COO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises LLC. “The addition of RV World of Georgia will accomplish all three objectives and add the No. 2 dealership in the state of Georgia to Camping World’s established No. 1 position.”
This will make it even more interesting when researching a dealership...
