Camping World acquires Marty’s US RV


LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. — Camping World and Good Sam today announced that it has signed an agreement to 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, according to a press release. 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.”

The SuperCenter will be officially named Camping World of Boston and is located at 137 Myricks Street. 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 motorhomes and towables.

“I always look for three things: people, process and product in relation to enhancing our Camping World and Good Sam presence,” said Lemonis. “The Hanoud Family clearly meets that test. Our goal is to add more quality manufacturers and brands, increase our presence in the market, and grow the workforce. The Boston area is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts with camping areas like the Boston Harbor Islands, Cape Cod and the Myles Standish State Forest to hike, camp, and just enjoy life. We are excited to begin serving this market.”

Camping World of Boston will also be adding additional positions for seasoned and professional RV sales associates, technicians, and retail support as the facility expands and is pleased to have the current employees at the Marty’s US RV location join the Camping World staff, Lemonis noted.
