Longtime dealership ‘Mr. Motorhome’ is relocating from its Sacramento, Calif., site to a new facility in nearby Elk Grove along Highway 99, according to a repot in the Sacramento Business Journal.
“We’ve completely remodeled the facility, even put in marble floors,” said owner Lon Lundgren, known regionally for his ubiquitous Mr. Motorhome commercials. “It’s as clean a looking a dealership as you would ever find.”
For several years, the 30,000-square-foot property was the Walt Davis Chevrolet dealership. After Davis died in a 1990 plane crash, the dealership foundered. Dow Investments, made up of surviving Davis family members, kept the vacant property.
Bill Ayres of CBRE Sacramento, who brokered the sale with Mike Luca of CBRE, said the timing for an RV dealership on the site made sense. Though sales fell during the Great Recession, RVs are on the rise again, fueled by both retiring Baby Boomers and lower gas prices.
