Lordstown Motors, Camping World Partner On Future Electric RV, Servicing

Electrified travel trailers and electric RVs were announced by Camping World, which is willing to service the Lordstown Endurance.

Lordstown Motors and Camping World held a press conference today with two major announcements on both sides.

The first is that the Camping World will become a service partner to handle Lordstown Endurance pickups nationwide in the U.S. The company has over 170 service locations, which – after training – should be able to maintain or repair the Endurance. Potentially, Camping World could also become an additional sales channel for Lordstown Motors.

The second thing is the upcoming Camping World’s electrified products – like electrified travel trailers and fifth-wheel campers. Adding battery packs to the trailers would allow them to stay off-grid, without a generator.

Even more interesting are motorized, electrified RVs and the newly announced ‘Class E’ motorhomes which will be based on Lordstown Motors’ EV tech/platform. According to the Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis, electric RVs must be affordable, because $100,000 or more per vehicle is out of range for many customers.

The first prototypes are expected in Summer 2021 and the final products might appear on the market around 2022.

That’s all we know from the press conference. We are now awaiting a press release.
