National Retailer Camping World Joins Forces with Chattanooga RV Dealer
Shipp's RV is Latest Gold Medal Dealer to be Named

(Bowling Green, KY)-- Camping World, the world's largest retailer of RV accessories, supplies and services, is soon to be available to RV enthusiasts in southern Tennessee. Shipp's RV Center, Chattanooga, TN has been selected to the elite Gold Medal Dealer program and joins with Camping World to provide a higher standard of customer satisfaction.

"We are proud to be recognized as a Gold Medal Dealer," said Randy Shipp, President, Shipp's RV Center. "Exceptional customer service is our top priority, and our alliance with Camping World will allow us to advance our efforts one step further. By combining our exceptional array of quality products with the convenience of one-stop shopping as a Gold Medal Dealer, we are sure to provide each and every customer with the utmost satisfaction."

The program launched June 2003 with Camping World's first Gold Medal Dealer alliance with Alpin Haus, a major RV dealer in upstate New York. This partnership would set the stage for Gold Medal Dealers across the United States providing one-stop shopping for all RV-related needs. Shipp's RV Center is one of many Gold Medal Dealers to open in less than a year.

"These partnerships are all part of an effort to provide our customers with the most reliable and convenient ways of searching for RVs, RV products and outdoor equipment," said Mark Boggess, Camping World CEO. "Each Gold Medal store is equipped with merchandise tailored to the RV dealer's area, climate and needs to best serve our customers. Only the best RV dealers in the country are invited to be a part of our exclusive network, ensuring the highest level in the market. Shipp's RV Center is one of the best."

"Our customers know that when they see a Gold Medal Dealer, they are guaranteed the best selection and pricing on accessories as well as Travel Trailers, Fifth Wheels, Motorhomes, and much more," said Shipp. "They are very eager to have a Gold Medal Dealer open in their area."

Camping World, located at Shipp's RV Center, will open September 17, 2004 in Chattanooga, TN with grand opening events scheduled for October 7-11. The most recent RV Center to be welcomed to the Gold Medal Dealer network will feature the latest RVs, RV products, and camping equipment. The store will encompass 7,000 square feet and employ 25 crewmembers to ensure the highest level of customer service. The Camping World investment in the Chattanooga store will be $1 million strong from training to equipment, setup and inventory.

Founded in 1967, Shipp's RV Center is now the largest dealer of RVs in the tri-state area. Located on the Tennessee-Georgia border, the 75-acre facility is equipped for much more than the servicing and selling of RVs. It also features an on-site campground with full amenities, which comes in handy for first-time buyers. As part of their commitment to customer service, Shipp's offers every customer three free nights at their campground to help the owner become acquainted with their RV before taking it out alone on the open road. Shipp's RV Center proudly serves as a founding member of Holiday Pusher club, and as a member of Go RVing Coalition, the Family Motor Coach Association (FMCA), the Holiday Rambler Recreational Vehicle Club (HRRVC), the Recreational Vehicle Dealer Association (RVDA), and the REDEX RV buying group.

Shipp's RV Center offers RV enthusiasts products from Keystone, Forest River, Holiday Rambler, Four Winds, Mandalay Coach, Fleetwood Motor Homes, Alfa Motor Homes, and more.

Camping World has 37 locations and 2 repair centers. The nationwide retailer offers 8,000 products geared toward the RVing community through its retail stores, extensive mail-order catalog and online shopping network.
