“Our business in the fourth quarter and fiscal 2016 was very strong and we are pleased with the results,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO. “The fourth quarter and full year benefited from strong consumer demand for recreation vehicles and our ability to sell our comprehensive portfolio of products and services across a growing proprietary customer database.

“In particular, our focus on the towable segment of the RV industry and higher-margin product and service revenue is driving our operating margin growth and flowing through to our bottom line,” he explained.

“Being the only provider of a comprehensive portfolio of services, protection plans, products and resources for RV enthusiasts, and operating the largest national network of RV-centric retail locations in the United States, we believe we are well positioned to benefit from continued growth in the installed base of RV owners that is being partially driven by higher levels of first-time buyers and new younger consumers, as well as the aging of the baby boomer demographic,” he added.

    Perhaps Lemonis would be professional enough to provide an accurate and honest statement about “Being the only provider of a comprehensive portfolio….”
    This is an enormous false statement. I have a great number of RV Dealership clients that represent and offer an impressive comprehensive portfolio of products and services. Several of these dealerships are located beside and/or very near Camping World locations, and compete strongly by offering their RV sales & service consumers a highly competitive, if not even superior, products and services!!!
