Located just short drives from Boston and Providence, Macdonald’s RV served thousands of customers in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and throughout New England since opening its doors in 1947.

Looking to retire after many successful years at the helm, owner Karen Macdonald explained the acquisition as being well-timed and an appropriate fit, “I’m excited for another established family business to take over management of Macdonald’s RV.  I see only positive things coming for our loyal customers, employees, and the local community.  I leave the business in good hands with Pete’s RV, and look forward to spending more time with friends, family, and being a grandmother.”

Upon acquisition of the celebrated Massachusetts location, Pete’s RV significantly increases accessibility to their southeastern New England customer base.  “For three generations, the Macdonald family worked tirelessly to maintain a highly reputable business.  We share the same mentality and look forward to building on their successes in this region and beyond,” added Pete’s RV co-owner Chad Shepard.

Macdonald’s RV is Pete’s fourth dealership.  The original location in South Burlington, Vermont has been operating since 1952.  A second location in Schererville, Indiana was acquired from Rollin-On RV in May 2011, followed by Van’s RV in South Windsor, Connecticut in September 2015.
