Meyer’s RV Superstores Acquires Johnston RV Country in Webster, New York from Aaron Johnston

Performance Brokerage Services, the leader in dealership buy-sell activity, is pleased to announce the sale of Johnston RV Country in Webster, New York from Aaron Johnston to Meyer’s RV Superstores.

Johnston RV was founded in 1988 by Gary Johnston, who got his start in the RV business at a small Airstream dealership in 1959. The Johnston family operated a full-line Jayco dealership for the past 32 years. Johnston’s oldest son, Aaron, joined the business in 1991 and became President in 2002.

Aaron Johnston, President of Johnston RV Country, remarked, “From our very first conversation, it was clear that Jesse Stopnitzky of Performance Brokerage Services was not what I had expected in a broker. He was much more! He took the time to get to know me and my business in a very detailed and personal manner. I knew that my business was not a big deal for their firm, but I was always treated with the priority of a huge client. Jesse was involved in the deal from start to finish, and beyond. He was available 24/7 for any question or concern that I had. I could not have asked for a better partner in one of life’s biggest decisions. Anyone looking to sell owes it to themselves to talk to Jesse Stopnitzky and Performance Brokerage Services before taking your business to market. I am so glad that I did!”

Johnston RV has been renamed Meyer’s RV of Rochester and will continue to operate at its current location at 784 Ridge Road in Webster, New York under the ownership of Mark Meyer and Mark Calzone, who have over 70 years of combined experience in the RV business.

Meyer commented, “Knowing Aaron throughout most of my career made this an exciting transaction. His dealership was one of the cleanest and organized stores we’ve come across, and adding Jayco and Rockwood to our franchises completes our lineup. We look forward to making Johnston RV Country part of the Meyer’s family and taking it to the next level.”

Meyer’s RV Superstores was founded by the Meyer family in 1967. The RV group currently operates 14 locations across New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, and Maryland.

Over the last 5 years, Performance Brokerage Services has advised on the sale of over 300 dealerships, making it the highest volume dealership brokerage firm in North America. In 2022, the company consummated 92 transactions, marking a record-breaking year.

Jesse Stopnitzky, Senior Partner & Director of the RV Division at Performance Brokerage Services acted as the exclusive advisor for this transaction.

Stopnitzky remarked, “We would like to thank the Johnston family for entrusting us with the sale of their generational family business. Being intimately involved in such pivotal moments, our clients often become our friends through the process. This was certainly the case and a privilege working with Aaron Johnston! He was an absolute gentleman and governed by a higher code of ethics and honesty, on which we connected from our first conversation.”
