Camping World Holdings, one of the largest RV retailers in the country, has acquired the Safford RV dealership in Thornburg, VA. The dealership started with a store in Bowling Green, Ky, in 1966. Now headquartered in Lincolnshire, Ill., it has more than 115 SuperCenters nationwide, including two in the Roanoke and Winchester areas. It also recently purchased McGeorge’s RV in Richmond.
“Our two organizations have such strong synergies in terms of customer service, product offerings and geographic presence, and we look forward to continuing Safford RV’s high standards of quality and service, while solidifying our leading position in the state,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World Holdings and Good Sam, in a news release.
