Haig Partners LLC was the exclusive sell-side advisor to John and Rebecca Asplund in the sale of their Blue Dog RV dealership group (“Blue Dog”) to RV Retailer, LLC (“RV Retailer”). Blue Dog is one of the largest RV dealership groups in the US with 12 stores in Post Falls, ID, Spokane, WA, Pasco, WA, Bend, OR, Redmond, OR, Portland, OR, Medford OR, Kalispell, MT, Las Vegas, NV, Bakersfield, CA, Redding, CA and Fleetwood, PA.
John and Rebecca Asplund said, “We’ve enjoyed working with so many talented associates to serve tens of thousands of customers all over the western part of the US. When we decided along with our teammate Marc Hauser that we’d like some assistance putting together the right deal to maximize the value of our business, we were referred to Alan Haig and Pete Thiel at Haig Partners. They did a truly impressive job interacting with the folks at RV Retailer and helping us to reach an agreement with them.” Daniel Hoops of Shackelford, Bowen, McKinley & Norton, LLP provided legal counsel to Blue Dog.
“We appreciate the opportunity to represent John and Rebecca Asplund and Marc Hauser in the sale of Blue Dog RV, one of the largest RV dealership transactions ever,” said Alan Haig, President of Haig Partners. “Theirs is a classic story of entrepreneurs working hard and taking risks to achieve great success. And we congratulate the team at RV Retailer for continuing its mission to build an impressive RV dealership group.”
