Camping World picks Rossford for RV outlet


Camping World will build an RV SuperCenter in Rossford, the company said this week.

The 10-to-12-acre facility will be near I-75 and the Ohio Turnpike. It will include an RV dealership, service bays, a Camping World retail store, and a collision center, the company said.

The facility, which will employ 25 to 30 people, is scheduled to open in early 2014.

“Our growth plans across the country are consistent with Camping World’s philosophy of commitment to enhance our customers’ total RV experience,” Marcus Lemonis, chairman and chief executive officer of Camping World, said in a statement.

“By increasing the growth of both the retail and dealership locations in our network, Camping World is getting closer to achieving our goal of truly being the one-stop shopping location for the RV and outdoor enthusiasts across the country and to continue to bring the best RV make and models to the RV community,” Mr. Lemonis said.

The business will be near the Bass Pro Shops store, but the exact location was not provided. The RV SuperCenter is part of more than 100 locations nationwide.

“Camping World is dedicated to providing its customers with the best experience and value in the industry,” Mr. Lemonis said. “Our goal is to expand our business into new areas, and we are very excited about serving the greater Toledo community.”
