Camping World Inc. and Good Sam Enterprises LLC announced that an agreement has been signed to acquire Mid-States Campers & RVs, an existing RV dealership in the Rapid City, S.D., market.
According to a press release, plans are for the location to undergo renovation to feature additional service bays, a Camping World retail store and a state-of-the-art collision center preparing the dealership to join over 100 other Camping World supercenter locations across the U.S.
“We are pleased to begin the acquisition of Mid-States Campers & RVs and expand our market share throughout South Dakota and the greater Midwest area,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam. “For almost 50 years, the Trupe family has proudly served the Rapid City area with top notch service and the best products. We look forward to upholding the values and commitment to customer service that Bob Trupe started nearly half a century ago.”
The supercenter will officially be named Camping World of Rapid City and is located with easy access off Interstate 90. This will be Camping World’s first full service location in South Dakota, offering a wide array of services including RV sales, service, collision, parts and accessories for the outdoor enthusiast.
Lemonis added, “The Rapid City area is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts with five national parks and monuments all within an hour’s drive allowing RVers to hike, camp, and just enjoy life. We are excited to begin serving this market.”
Camping World of Rapid City will be adding additional positions for seasoned and professional RV sales associates, technicians and retail support as the facility expands while retaining current employees at the Mid-States Campers and RVs.
