Southern RV Supercenter LLC has purchased Reliable RV Center of Biloxi, Miss. According to a press release, Southern RV currently has dealerships in Bossier City and Lafayette, La., and Tyler, Texas, which include fully-stocked parts departments and state-of-the-art service centers.
Reliable is a mid-size, locally-owned Mississippi dealership that opened in 1971. In addition to buying the dealership, Southern RV also purchased additional acreage next to the Reliable property, which is adjacent to Interstate 10.
Jim Hicks, president of Southern RV, noted, “The Reliable acquisition is part of Southern RV’s plan to grow our market share in the southeastern part of the United States. We are excited about expanding east along the gulf coast and believe having a location on I-10 will provide us with the high visibility we need to grow our business.”
Southern RV plans to build a 28,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that will house a large indoor showroom, a retail parts and accessories department and a large service department.
Southern RV will start adding additional RV units to the Biloxi location immediately. They plan to carry many of the same brands of motorhomes, fifth-wheels, toy haulers and travel trailers that are currently carried at their other locations. The company is also seeking to hire additional employees at the Biloxi location over the next four months as they gear up for 2015.
