LAFAYETTE, La. — Camping World has acquired Southern RV Superstores with four locations in Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi, RV Daily Report has learned.
Although Camping World has no official work about the acquisition, the staff at the Southern RV Superstores today confirmed that they are officially operating as Camping World stores. However, the staff is still answering the phones as Southern RV during the transition to make it less confusing to customers.
Southern RV itself acquired Reliable RV Center in Biloxi, Miss., in November 2014. At that time, Jim Hicks, president of Southern RV, considered the Reliable acquisition to part of Southern RV’s plan to grow its market share in the southeastern part of the United States.
The acquisition means Camping World now has locations in Biloxi; LaFayette, La.; Bossier City, La.; and Tyler, Texas.
