Camping World Holdings Inc. reported revenue for the second quarter of $1.5 billion, a 2.3% increase from the year-ago period.

Marcus A. Lemonis, chairman and CEO, said, “For the second quarter, our company generated record revenue of nearly $1.5 billion and sold an all-time high of 33,715 new and used recreational vehicles. Despite some of the headwinds across the new RV market, which were evidenced by a significant decline in both new RV wholesale shipments and RV registration reports, we grew both revenue and unit volume and achieved close to $100 million in adjusted EBITDA in the quarter. While some of the broader macro factors impacting the RV industry are outside of our control right now, we are focused on optimizing our assets and improving the RV consumer experience.”
