Camping World Inc., the nation’s largest RV and outdoor retailer, today (Feb. 11) announced that it has acquired property in both Saukville, Wis., (Milwaukee area) and Fort Pierce, Fla., for expansion and future development to meet customer needs for product and service in new markets.

According to a press release, plans are under way to expand the company footprint with two additional locations in high traffic, outdoor-centric markets.

“These are great markets for Camping World/Good Sam to expand to,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World. “These locations fit nicely into our existing footprint and have a strong base on Campingworld.com customers as well as Good Sam members already in the area. We are excited to move forward in our own growth while serving our customers’ outdoor, RV and camping needs.”

The Camping World of Milwaukee and Camping World of Fort Pierce will feature motorhomes and towables from the finest manufacturers and brands including Winnebago Industries, Fleetwood, Thor Motor Coach, Itasca, Coleman, Heartland, Keystone, Forest River, Cross Roads, Monaco, Holiday Rambler, Jayco, Starcraft and Coachmen.

On the accessory side the new locations will feature new and innovative products including interactive displays and customer experiences from the top vendors such as Dometic, Thetford, Honda, Goodyear, Winegard, ADCO, Camco, Roadmaster, Husky, Resse, Cequent, Exide, Ultra-Fab, Coleman, Valterra, Dicor, Champion, Rand McNally, Max-Air, BAL, Cummins, Onan, Progressive Dynamics, Weber, HWH, Presto-Fit, Stromberg-Carlson, Atwood, Xantrex, Magellan, King Controls, Charbroil, Amerigas, Exxon Mobil products and Norcold.

“These new locations position Camping World for continued growth in both Florida and Wisconsin. Today the company operates a store in Madison, Wisconsin and in nearby Island Lake, Ill. In Florida, the existing 13-store Florida network will be enhanced with the new Fort Pierce location. Our Florida customers continue to embrace our growing presence in the sunny state,” stated Johnny Sirpilla, chief business development officer for Camping World/Good Sam. “We look forward to delivering the highest quality and outstanding service that Camping World customers have come to know and expect across the country.”

It sure would be nice to have some stores open in western Canada. Winnipeg & Edmonton would make great locations. Manitoba is a location were people are always looking for new places and good deals.

Camping World should consider a Northern Nevada Location. This location would also serve North Eastern California.

I live in Chesapeake, Virginia and the closest Camping World is 250 miles away. My husband and I are camphosts at 1st Landing State Park in Virginia Beach, Va. June and July of every year. We have campers asking us where they can get camper parts and supplies and there is very little choice for them in the area. Please consider putting a Camping World in the Tidewater area. Thank you

We had a Camping World here in Mission, Tx. for many years and it was always very busy.Then one day when I went over to buy something it was closed down.The 12 years that I have lived here I would say that I have spent at least $12,000. And we have about 75,000 to 100,000 Winter come to this area every year. Now I would have to drive over 350 miles to buy my RV products. And every one else who are camping world members.Which is not going to happen,and all the other RV stores,shops are happy and all the prices just went up.I have a5th wheel RV 38Ft. And a 38 Ft. Windsor. And all my extended service plans on each unit are with Good Sam.
