Campers Inn, a Kingston, N.H.-based dealership chain, Monday (Nov. 8) added a seventh store with the acquisition of the RV Superstore of Mocksville in Mocksville, N.C.
”Campers Inn of Mocksville is going to be a full-line dealership supporting parts and service to the RV community,” President and CEO Jeffrey Hirsch told RVBusiness.com.
Hirsch’s parents, Art and Fran Hirsch, founded Campers Inn in 1966 selling RVs from their Nashua, N.H., home after having a bad experience attempting to purchase a folding camping trailer.
”Making money was never the intent, although I’m sure he hoped he could do it properly,” Jeffrey Hirsch said. ”But as a result of his experience he wanted to give people a better experience than he had. He wanted to treat people the way they should be treated.”
Campers Inn in October was named one of the Top 50 dealerships in the U.S. by an independent panel of judges on behalf of RVBusiness magazine and was designated one of five ”Blue Ribbon” dealerships in the nation.
The 32,000-square-foot Mocksville facility on 10 acres employs about 30 people and has 10 service bays and an indoor showroom. ”It’s one of the nicest facilities I’ve ever seen,” Hirsch said.
The acquisition was Campers Inn’s second this year after having opened a Campers Inn dealership in July in Elkhart, Ind.
Besides the Mocksville and Elkhart facilities and the Kingston headquarters store, Campers Inn operates dealerships in Merrimack, N.H., Raynham, Mass., Fruitland, Fla., and Byron, Ga.
