   Lazydays RV Celebrates 30 Years of Milestones in Tampa Bay
-  TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 30, 2006--Lazydays RV celebrates its 30th anniversary this month kicking off the festivities on Tuesday, August 8 at 7 a.m. in Seffner with a breakfast event. Lazydays' Founder and Chairman of the Board, Don Wallace, spoke before more than 600 employees about the past, present and future of Lazydays.

"This milestone will allow our employees to collectively celebrate the past, while looking ahead to the future. We are proud of the contributions Lazydays has been able to make to the Tampa Bay area and we look forward to our continued growth," said Wallace.

The original Lazydays dealership opened its doors in 1976 and consisted of a mobile home nestled on a 1.75 acre site, two travel trailers in inventory and $500 in capital. Twenty years later Lazydays moved to its current Super Center location and quickly became the nation's most popular RV destination.

For 2006, Lazydays is honored to receive the #1 RV Dealer award by Monaco Coach Corporation, Top Winnebago Brand Dealer and Top Itasca Brand Dealer awards by Winnebago Industries, #1 Single-Site Dealer award by Tiffin Motorhomes, #1 Overall Dealer award by Fleetwood RV and the #1 Overall Carriage Dealer award by Carriage, Inc.

"The last 30 years make up the fruition of a reality that began as a simple dream - to sell two trailers a month. When my brother, father and I started this business we were lucky in picking the right market area. We had no idea that Tampa was such a great place to start an RV dealership. We didn't realize that so many people came down here in the winter and that the local market had never been touched. We just knew that if we worked hard, we'd be successful," says Wallace of Lazydays' beginnings.
