LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. — Camping World Holdings Inc. has announced the expansion of its business presence in South Dakota with the acquisition of Spader’s RV Center located in Sioux Falls and New Prairie RV Southtown located in Worthing.

“We remain focused on brand expansion and top-notch customer service, as we continue to grow in the South Dakota market with the successful establishments of Spader’s RV Center and New Prairie RV Southtown joining the Camping World family,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman of Camping World Holdings. “We look forward to providing customers with the high level of service they deserve and fulfilling all of their outdoor, camping and RV needs; from offering thousands of accessories, to quality RV sales and service.”

    Camping World on the fast track to become the only place you can go to get a RV or parts and service. And, their customer service is terrible and their prices are high. Really hate to see this happening.

      We try not shop there as they are way higher than other R V shops
      And they take way to long to get repairs done we waited over 2 months to get a leveler replaced on our 2017 Bounder.

    Will not: purchase any type of recreational vehicle or get any service done by Camping World for the exact reasons noted above, high prices and incompetent service and/or repairs. This is a result of having using their services in the past.

  • Jim says:

    The service (as reported to me by other people) at their Rapid City, SD location is pathetic. When two different customers called to complain to management, the manager hung up on them. Two different customers, at different times in the year?

    I hope Camping World ends up bankrupt. They are a festering wound for the industry.
