Lincolnshire-based Camping World, the nation's largest RV and outdoor retailer, and Good Sam, the world's largest RV owners organization said it will acquire Marty's US RV, an existing RV dealership in Berkley, Mass. in the next 30 to 45 days.
Plans are for the location to undergo a massive expansion to renovate into a larger facility including additional service bays, a new Camping World retail store and a state of the art collision center. Camping World currently has nearby New England area SuperCenters in Chichester and Conway, N.H..
"We are pleased to begin the acquisition of Marty's US RV and expand our market share throughout Massachusetts as well as the greater New England area," said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam. "For over 22 years Marty Hanoud and family have proudly served the Boston area with top notch service and the best in products. Our decision to branch into the Boston market was fully realized only because of the quality reputation that Marty's US RV has in their community.
"We expect the New England market to allow us to broaden our customer reach, build upon our market leadership position in recreational sales, and make Camping World the leading retailer in the growing outdoor market," he added.
The SuperCenter will be officially named Camping World of Boston and is located at 137 Myricks St. The Camping World of Boston is the first full service location in Massachusetts for Camping World and will offer a wide array of RV sales, service, collision, parts and accessories for the outdoor enthusiast while featuring motor homes and towables from the finest manufacturers and brands.
