Welcome to Camp-Out RV
For over 50 years Camp-Out RV has been helping customers fulfill their vacation dreams. We have been a family owned and operated business since 1962 proudly residing in Stratford Ontario. Camp-Out has grown from their humble beginnings when Cy and Helen began operations out of their garage as the only two employees to today where we now operate with two locations - a Parts Superstore and Service Centre location as well as our sales and rental location that includes our 7 acres of RVs in the "Field of Dreams." Over the years we have experienced a lot of changes, but our family values and dedication to our customers has always remained.
History of Camp-Out RV
The Beginning of Camp-Out
When Cy and Helen Parks bought a family tent trailer in 1959, little did they know what they really started. The trailer was parked in their front yard on highway 8 when not in use just outside of Stratford. Travelers frequently stopped by to see if the trailer was for sale or for rent. After enough inquires, Helen decided to sell trailers and accessories out the garage in 1962 and Camp-Out was born.
The Early Years
For the next 27 years, Cy and Helen continued to operate and grow Camp-Out RV. The family business had no set hours,opening at dawn and closing at dusk, but it would be closed for supper everyday from 5:00pm - 6:30pm. Over the years Cy and Helen received a lot of interesting trade ins, including Snoopy, who became the family dog.
New Owners for Camp-Out
In 1989, Cy and Helen's son Sam and wife Debbi returned to Stratford and in 1992 they took over Camp-Out RV
In 2000 Camp-Out RV was ready for expansion. What started as a family business has now grown to over 20 employees. Camp-Out expanded by adding a service shop and more offices.
