RV Retailer LLC (RVR) announced it is entering the New England market with the acquisition of Country Camper. Country Camper has stores in Vermont and New Hampshire and a new store under construction in Connecticut that is expected to open in the second quarter 2022. The acquisition is expected to be completed in February.
“The acquisition of Country Camper kicks off 2022 where we left off in 2021 with strong growth and momentum. We are excited to enter New England and serve customers in that region, it has attractive RV demographics. This gives us a strong platform for growth in the Northeast United States when combined with our existing stores where we already rank as the No. 1 dealer in New York,” says RVR CEO and President Jon Ferrando.
“Country Camper has been operating in the New England market since 1996,” says Raul Rodriguez, RVR senior vice president, corporate development. “We thank Layne, Cindy and Logan Gregoire for selecting us to acquire Country Camper. The stores will be re-branded under the RV One Superstores name and will be part of RVR’s East Region under the direction of Don Strollo, East Region president.”
“We had choices and there was no better partner to select to acquire Country Camper than RV Retailer,” says Layne Gregoire. “They are true professionals and will provide exceptional growth opportunities for our associates and take our business to another level in the New England market.”
“Country Camper RV primarily sells towable RVs with strong brands like Grand Design, Keystone and Forest River Rockwood,” says Don Strollo. “We will be adding key brands which is part of our strategy to drive growth. We are excited for the new store to open in Connecticut this spring along with driving substantial growth in the stores in Vermont and New Hampshire. I look forward to working with Logan Gregoire who will serve as the market leader for us in New England. We welcome all the team members of Country Camper to the RV Retailer family.”
