As announced in a press release today, Good Sam, a provider of products for the RV and outdoor recreation consumer purchased RV.com for an undisclosed sum. The domain name was owned by Dometic Group, another supplier for the RV and Marine Industries.
The company is planning to develop the domain name into a new site by August 2013 and is hoping to benefit from 20,000 links the site currently has according to the press release. The site will cater to the “Good Sam Club” member base and offer information, access to new and used RVs, how-to videos as well as social components.
“The term “RV” defines not just a type of vehicle, it defines a lifestyle,” said Good Sam Chairman and CEO, Marcus Lemonis. “We strive to be the one-stop shop for everything in the RV lifestyle and integrating www.RV.com into our suite of Web-based services for RVers further solidifies our position as the leader in this industry.”
The whois of the domain has yet to be updated to the new owner.
