Camping World and Southwest RV Centers Open 2nd Texas Location in Katy
Gold Medal Dealer Alliance Program Going Strong

(Bowling Green, KY)- National retailer Camping World has teamed up again with Southwest RV Centers to open up a new location in Katy, Texas. In September 2003 Camping World and Southwest RV Centers opened its first Gold Medal Alliance Supercenter in New Braunfels, Texas. The Gold Medal Dealer Alliance program creates a source for one-stop shopping for all RV-related needs by aligning RV dealers with Camping World's services and supplies. Southwest RV Centers is a FreedomRoads Company.

Located just to the west of Houston, the newest SuperCenter to be added to the list of select Gold Medal Dealers is scheduled to open late October at 27905 Katy Freeway. Chosen for its ideal location along I-10 and with easy access from Highway 90, this Supercenter is just a 30 minute drive from downtown Houston. The Katy, Texas locale will serve the immediate population base of four million people and afford RV enthusiasts along heavily traveled I-10 the benefits of one-stop shopping for RVs, accessories, supplies and RV services.

"Southwest RV Centers is proud to be associated with Camping World," said Jim Farris, Regional Manager for FreedomRoads. "The addition of Camping World to our Katy location will serve as a great benefit to our customers, affording them quality product offerings and the convenience of one-stop shopping."

"Camping World is constantly looking for ways in which we can best provide our customers with reliable and convenient ways of searching for RVs, RV products and outdoor equipment, and these alliances allow us to do so," 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 its customers. Only the best RV dealers in the country are invited to be a part of our exclusive network, ensuring the highest level of service in the market. Southwest RV Centers has a long-standing reputation for great products and excellent service. Camping World is looking forward to serving the customers in the Houston market."

This new Supercenter has 86,000 square feet under roof and is located on 38 acres. Along with the great offering provided for convenient shopping within Camping World, Southwest RV Centers will feature a full collision center, a 20,000 square foot indoor showroom, four customer lounges and an Internet bar with 8 stations for computer hookup. Southwest RV Centers offers a wide selection of choices for RVers including Forest River, Monaco, Big Horn, Thor, Damon, Gulf Stream, Nash, Arctic Fox, Wildwood, Sierra, Palomino, Puma and others.

Camping World has 43 retail locations and 2 collision 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. Camping World repair and service centers staff trained professionals adept at installing or repairing any product purchased at Camping World stores such as accessories, appliances and other equipment for RVs or towed vehicles.
