Camping World Holdings Inc. announced plans for expansion in the state of Idaho, with the proposed acquisition of Nelson’s RVs with three locations in the greater Boise metropolitan market.
According to a press release, the acquisition increases Camping World’s presence in Idaho to five locations. Nelson’s RVs operates two stores in Boise and another in Caldwell while Camping World currently has two supercenters in the Meridian and Idaho Falls areas.
Brent Moody, chief operating officer of Camping World and sister company Good Sam Enterprises LLC, noted, “The Nelson family exemplifies the core values that are synonymous with Camping World and the way we run our business, and these standards will remain and guide us as we look toward the future.
“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.”
Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam, added, “We continue to seek acquisitions to leverage the progression of our brand and to provide a superior experience to customers across the country. 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 of Idaho.”
