I noticed a huge pile of fresh earth being moved in Newtown along Rt. 25 on my way back from a trip into Monroe over the weekend, and what's being built on top of this fresh earth should be exciting news for the recreational vehicle enthusiasts here in Connecticut.

Country Camper is a full-service, family-owned and operated RV dealership, with two locations in Northern New England - East Montpelier, Vermont, and Epsom, New Hampshire. In the first quarter of 2022, they will open a third location in Newtown, Connecticut.

I just got off the phone with Doug at the Montpelier location, who told me that they are very excited to open up their new location in Newtown at some point early in 2022. You can tell by my photos, there's a lot of work to be done on the planned 31,000 square foot facility. I saw some of the sub-structure from the road, but, they're still months away from completion.

What can you expect when Country Camper opens up in Newtown? According to an article on rv-pro.com, 14 service bays, a big parts department, delivery pads, and space for hundreds of RV's from manufacturers like Winnebago, Xtreme Outdoors, Rockwood, Grand Design RV, Rockwood, Forest River, Keystone, and more.

I just got back from a trip up into New Hampshire, and there were so many RV's camped out along the Lake Winnipesaukee shoreline. One of those could be yours, start saving right now, in Late Winter/Early Spring 2022 there will be a caravan coming down 91 and 84.
