Markquart Family RV & Auto Acquires RV World in Ramsey, Minnesota

Performance Brokerage Services announced the sale of RV World in Ramsey, Minnesota, according to a press release. The dealership, originally owned by Darren and Corrine Mann, has been sold to Markquart Family RV & Auto.

RV World, established in 1997 and acquired by Darren and Connie Mann in 2015, has been in the recreational vehicle market, retailing over 500 new and used vehicles annually.

We had the pleasure of engaging Jesse Stopnitzky from Performance Brokerage Services. He was instrumental in aligning our family’s dealership with the right buyer. He was always available and highly responsive. We share similar values of honesty and integrity, which helped assure me that my best interests were always at the forefront of his actions. If you are considering buying or selling an RV dealership, I highly recommend Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services,” Darren Mann of RV World said.

Jesse Stopnitzky and Jon Couwenberg, representing Performance Brokerage Services as exclusive advisors, expressed gratitude towards the Mann family for entrusting them with the sale.

“We would like to thank Darren and Corrine Mann for putting their faith in us to guide them on the sale of their dealership. Since we first engaged, Darren was hoping to identify a buyer that would continue to exemplify the company’s slogan, ‘Through honesty and integrity, we will build lasting relationships.’ Having worked with the Markquart family in the automotive industry and experiencing their implementation of these same values, it was natural for us to contact them on this opportunity,” Stopnitzky, co-owner and director of the RV Division for Performance Brokerage Services said.

The Markquart family business, with over 50 years of experience, began with Ed Markquart selling cars from a gas station in Jackson, Minnesota. The family now operates a dozen dealerships across the automotive, RV, and marine sectors in Minnesota and Wisconsin, led by Lee Markquart and his sons, David and John, and John’s son, Charlee.

The acquisition of RV World, which will continue operating at its current location under the new name Markquart RV Ramsey, is an expansion for Markquart Family RV & Auto into the RV market. For more information, click here.
