Tampa, FL – Yesterday, March 23rd, Lazydays Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQCM: LAZY) (“Lazydays RV” or “Lazydays”) completed its acquisition of Chilhowee RV Center (“Chilhowee RV”), a premier RV dealership located just outside Knoxville, Tennessee. It is a short drive from the entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited National Park in America with over 11 million annual visitors. Chilhowee RV has a wide selection of outstanding RV brands including Airstream, Winnebago, Forest River and Thor.
“We are extremely pleased to complete this acquisition and continue to execute on our geographic expansion strategy,” stated William P.

I am also delighted to welcome Leland Waggoner, the former owner of Chilhowee RV, and his outstanding team to the Lazydays family,” commented Murnane.
Recently the Company has been successful accelerating its rate of geographic expansion. Chilhowee RV represents the Company’s fifth completed acquisition or opening over the last eleven months. This acquisition will be followed shortly by the completion of the Reno, Nevada acquisition and the opening of the Monticello, Minnesota location this spring. The Company continues to work a strong pipeline of expansion opportunities that includes both acquisitions and greenfields.
