“My grandfather founded General RV in Detroit almost 60 years ago,” General RV President Loren Baidas (pictured left) says. “The Clarkston Supercenter is just one example of General RV’s commitment to reinvesting in our facilities so we can continue to provide an industry-leading experience for customers and grow the General RV family.”

Employees from the General RV store in White Lake, Mich., have transferred to Clarkston.

“We’ve served the White Lake and Waterford areas for over 30 years and had a great experience there. We had simply outgrown that facility and needed an upgrade,” Store Operations Manager Bill Brown says. “Our employees and customers were patient as we found a new home for the store, and I’d like to thank all of them for their support through the transition.”

The new Supercenter, located at 8665 Dixie Highway in Clarkston, has 300 RVs on the lot, 16 service bays and a large retail space.
