Canada’s GNR Camping World RV Centre Sold to Go RV

HIGHLAND RANCH. Colo. – RV Business Solutions, a leading buy-sell advisor to RV dealers, was the exclusive sell-side advisor to Kevin Betzold in the sale of his Winnipeg, MB Canada based RV dealership, GNR Camping World RV Centre to Go RV, a division of Edmonton, AB Canada based Go Auto Dealerships, Inc.

Originally starting as an RV Service Center in 1971, GNR Camping World (named after founders Gil Robert, his cousin Noel Painchaud and his brother Rheal Robert) has always believed that all camping experiences should be pleasant and memorable.

Kevin Betzold, General Manager, stated “Our company strives to ensure that our customers are completely satisfied with the purchase and service of their RV. Repeat customers, as well as referrals, are a large part of our business. Our success depends on it! Our customers’ needs are put to the forefront; we strive to offer the highest level of customer satisfaction in the industry.”

Kevin continued, “I could not be more pleased with how well Mike and Scott handled the entire transaction. They were referred to me by an RV colleague, and they absolutely delivered. They brought several qualified buyers to me, but we felt that the team at Go RV was the best fit for us and our valued employees. I would encourage any RV dealer looking to sell their business to engage with RV Business Solutions. They truly understand all the inner workings of an RV dealership and the RV industry.”

Since 2021, RV Business Solutions has advised on the sale of over 50 RV dealership locations totaling over $400M in Transactional Value. Mike Lankford, Co-Founder and Partner at RV Business Solutions, commented, “It was a pleasure helping Kevin in the sale of his dealership. Scott and I could not be happier for him and his team.”
