National RV retailer Camping World Inc. today (Nov. 20) announced a retail distribution agreement with Little Guy Worldwide, a North Canton, Ohio-based firm that markets lightweight teardrop trailers.
Camping World said that the trailers, which are manufactured by Elkhart, Ind.-based Little Guy Trailer Co., will be available at nine locations by the end of the year. Little Guy Worldwide currently has a retail network that includes outlets in the United States, Canada, Europe, South Africa, Australia and the United Arab Emirates.
“The Little Guy product is a natural extension into our expanding base of products to serve the outdoor enthusiast,” said John Sirpilla, president of retail operations for Camping World. “We are impressed by the growing number of outdoor enthusiasts who have found the Little Guy to be the solution to their camping and travel needs and are excited to serve them in this capacity.”
Joe Kicos, owner of Little Guy Worldwide, noted: “Our entry into this retail channel represents an opportunity for a formerly niche product to gain wider exposure to the camping public while offering Camping World’s customers a high-quality, affordable product that is environmentally friendly and which recognizes that not everyone owns a vehicle capable of towing a larger travel trailer.”
