Good Sam Club and Camping World to Launch Auto Buying Program

Program to Allow Customers to Receive Low Pricing on Purchases of an Auto, Boat or Powersport Vehicle Thru Its Preferred Dealer Network

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2013) - Building on its commitment to provide maximum value and savings to its members, Good Sam, the world's leading provider of products and services for the RV and outdoor recreation consumer, today announced it will launch a new auto buying program to provide their more than 1 million members with pre-arranged savings on the purchase of autos, as well as on boats, ATVs and other powersports vehicles. With Good Sam Club members able to save thousands on purchases, the auto buying service is already attracting attention, even though it launches in July.

"Our focus is simply for our Good Sam members to have a great, seamless buying experience," said Marcus Lemonis, Chairman and CEO of Good Sam and Camping World. "With the Good Sam Auto Buying Service our members will receive value and top-notch service on their purchase of a vehicle that would complement their RV lifestyle whether it is a new car, truck, van, sport utility, motorcycle, boat or ATV."

Featuring up-front, hassle-free, pre-arranged pricing on many makes and models of autos, boats, and powersport vehicles, the Good Sam Auto Buying Service is unmatched in the industry. "No other camping or outdoor organization offers anything close." Continued Lemonis, "We continue to provide Good Sam Members with serious savings -- while they RV and throughout all aspects of their life. We will be adding more and more savings programs for our members."

Building on relationships with more than 2,000 dealerships representing leading brands from Ford to Jeep, Toyota to Mercedes and many more, the Good Sam Auto Buying Service will offer members the ability to configure the exact vehicle they are interested in and to enjoy pre-arranged, discounted prices -- with no negotiations needed. All prices are guaranteed and Club members will work directly with dedicated, specially trained, dealer staff to complete their vehicle purchases. The program provides more than just lower prices and hassle free buying experiences, it includes the best customer service, all backed by Good Sam.

"The Good Sam Club is built upon helping people, and helping people save money is something we take seriously," said Lemonis. "Members already save millions of dollars every year at campgrounds, at Camping World and at Pilot Flying J. Now, they will save even more at car, boat and powersports dealerships across the country. Our Auto Buying Service lets members focus on the excitement of their vehicle purchases, while saving thousands of dollars. We have pledged to bring maximum value to our members and we are delivering on that promise, again."

With the service set to launch on July 1, Good Sam has already received such a high level of interest that they are offering Club members the ability to sign up on to be notified as soon as the program is ready.

The Good Sam Buying Service will also help members choose the specific vehicle that is best for them. With side-by-side comparisons and thousands of pages of descriptions, photos and specifications, the Service provides a one-stop location to manage the entire vehicle research and purchase experience -- all with pre-arranged discounted pricing.
