FreedomRoads LLC, the nation’s largest recreational vehicle retailer network, today (Aug. 9) announced the acquisition of Grumbine’s RV Center, a full-service dealership in Harrisburg, Pa.
According to a press release, with the addition of Grumbine’s, FreedomRoads of Lincolnshire, Ill., owns and operates 44 dealerships in 18 states.
Grumbine’s General Manager Keith Grumbine stated: “We felt that the RV industry was prime for consolidation for some time, and becoming a FreedomRoads dealer made sense to us. Being part of a large company will give us buying power, enhanced brand recognition and a nationwide dealer service chain. These are things we simply could not have as an independent dealer.”
Northeast Regional President and FreedomRoads co-founder Mark Meyer noted, “When Meyer’s and Grumbine’s were in competition with one another we had a lot of respect for them. They ran a good operation and had an impeccable reputation.”
Grumbine’s RV Center, founded in 1971 by Richard and Linda Grumbine, is situated on ten acres outside of Harrisburg. With the transition, Richard also announced his retirement, turning over leadership of the dealerhship to his son, Keith.
