The expansion plans raise the total number of Camping World SuperCenters to just shy of 110 nationwide.

Plans are underway to expand the company footprint in the first quarter of 2015 with additional SuperCenters in high traffic, outdoor-centric areas within the following markets:

  • Idaho Falls, Idaho

All new locations will offer a wide array of RV sales, service, collision, parts, and accessories for the outdoor enthusiast along with a broad range of accessories from well-known vendors.
