RV aftermarket parts and accessory retailer Camping World Inc. has opened a new retail store at the headquarters of Guaranty RV Centers, Junction City, Ore.
The Camping World store, which opened May 22, is the chain’s 49th.
“It’s great to be in an area where people take recreation and the environment very seriously and one where the RV industry is important to the community and the region,” said Mike Hatch, general manager of the new store.
The 22,000-square-foot facility features 13,000 square feet of retail floor space. In addition to six service bays, Camping World of Junction City has an advanced Performance Center with a specialist with installation, maintenance and repair expertise on systems designed for RVs, such as suspension, steering stabilizers, airbags and navigation equipment.
The new building is considered to be a “green facility” in that it is designed to conserve energy with 68 skylights and its own power inverter.

Its parent company, Affinity Group Inc., also owns the company that publishes RVBUSINESS.com. Besides the Junction City facility, Guaranty operates stores in Coburg, Ore., and Gilroy and Indio, Calif.
