Bish's RV is hosting a grand opening celebration of its new Meridian, Idaho facility from Aug. 18-19.
The new 53,000 square-foot facility features an indoor sales showroom, expanded RV parts department and 22 service bays complete with a body collision repair shop.
The company has moved from its previous location in Nampa, Idaho. The move was based on the lack of space at the Nampa location, according to Marketing Direcdtor Megan Walker. The previous location sat on about 8 acres, while the new Meridian location is more than double the size, at 17 acres.
