The Camping World Holdings Inc. (CWH) residential trailer and mobile home manufacturer is opening its 160th distribution centre in the United States. A response to the increasing demand for the company’s goods is the expansion of the distribution network.
Sales of residential trailers and motor homes have risen dramatically in the past months in the United States. Against the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, closed resorts and cancelled cruises, a family car trip has become the only accessible means of leisure for many. The rate of trailer and motor home sales was the strongest in forty years. According to the RV Industry Association (RVIA), total revenue growth was 53.3 percent year-on-year. Sales are forecast to grow next year by 19.5 percent.
In the third quarter, revenues of CWH rose 21 percent year on year. Currently, the company is aggressively growing its distribution network in the United States and adding new dealerships, seeking to keep up with high demand. Company’s next selling point in the U.S. will open in Ohio. The company announced the purchase of sales centers in Oregon and Minnesota several weeks earlier. Camping World Holdings’ latest shopping centers will sell new and supported mobile homes and residential trailers, replacement parts, products and service offerings.
Camping World plans to launch a camping rental service in the spring of 2021 for the subscribers of its club, which has around 2.1 million participants. The company predicts that more interest in recreational transport will be created by easily accessible rentals and will encourage potential buyers to get the experience of travelling in a motor home before they purchase.
The expansion strategy of Camping World Holdings Inc. (CWH) is costly, but the business is sure of long-term success and is therefore able to invest. Company stock was worth 30.21 at close of the trading session on Thursday.
