Gib's RV
By Desiree Gaoiran, Staff Writer 

Gib’s RV Superstore is celebrating their 57th birthday! They originally started as a manufactured home dealer in North Bend and then in 1956 they moved to their Coos Bay location. They are built on 9 acres of land and are stocked full of  new and used truck campers, motorhomes, travel trailers, toy haulers, and fifth wheels, and they also rent out RV’s. Not only do they deal in retail but they are also a full service repair shop. You can bet that your RV will always receive the best care by their master craftsmen. Gib’s will service everything from roofs and appliances, to slide-outs and awnings.

Lisa Larkin, Ray Larkin and Bob Shultz are officially the new owners of Gib’s RV. The previous owner, Bill Leslie, was the matchmaker for this trio and after many meetings together the trio decided to merge together and buy the business. Bob, a native of Coos Bay, has worked in sales his entire life and has worked with Gib’s for 6 years as the sales manager. Ray and Lisa are new to Gib’s and relocated here from Elmira, Oregon.

Each person brings their own unique set of skills to the table. With Lisa’s experience in finance, Ray’s experience with repairs, and Bob’s experience with sales, it seemed like the perfect combination for continuing Gib’s success as the leading RV dealer here on the Oregon Coast.

Bob, Lisa, and Ray new owners of Gib’s RV.

Lisa came from the wholesale auto auction industry and managed a large auction for over 20 years. The RV industry has always been something that has interested her because she loves the people. “Buying an RV is a heart decision, not a have-to decision,” she says. Her husband Ray worked for 35 years at Morse Brothers and has been retired for 7 years. 

The locally owned company employs 19 people. “All of the same people work here, we just added a couple of people,” Bob said with a big smile on his face, referring to Lisa and Ray. After spending a bit of time with these three wonderful folks there is no doubt in my mind that Gib’s RV will be successful for many more years to come. They seem to get along great and really know what they are talking about.
