WEST FARGO, North Dakota — An extended-stay trailer dealer has relocated after nearly 30 years in Moorhead, and the move means West Fargo will now account for a big part of all campers sold in North Dakota.
The move to 1721 Main Ave. E. in West Fargo puts Outlet Recreation.com's Lifetime RV division just blocks away from the company's main store at 2249 Main Ave. E. in West Fargo.
The Lifetime division, which formerly operated as Larry's RV at 3002 24th Ave. S. in Moorhead until it became Lifetime RV when it was bought in 2015, took the place of Outlet Recreation.com's former rental operation now at its main store.
