Hitch RV, which has three locations, including one in Boyertown, Berks County, is being acquired by Lincolnshire, Illinois-based Camping World Holdings for an undisclosed price.
Camping World, calling itself America’s largest retailer of RVs and related products and services, also is adding Hitch RV’s facilities in Milford, Delaware, and Berlin, New Jersey, expanding its footprint in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of this year.
Hitch RV sells new and used RVs and provides RV parts and services. The Boyertown sales and service center is at 890 Swinehart Road; its website shows a staff of seven employees.
Marcus Lemonis, CEO and chairman of Camping World, said in a release: “Hitch RV has been proudly serving the mid-Atlantic region for over 15 years, and we’re excited to have Tim Waters join our management team as we expand in the Northeast. This acquisition brings us into Delaware for the first time, marking the entrance into our 43rd state, while adding to our leading market share positions in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.”
