THE EARLY YEARS
September long weekend
Gil Robert, who had been camping since the late 50’s, had his travel trailer flipped over in a wind storm. When he took it back to Winnipeg to get it repaired, he was told by his insurance company that no one would fix it. This highlighted the obvious need for an RV Service Centre.
Gil Robert with his cousin Noel Painchaud and his brother Rheal Robert started an RV Service Centre under the name of GNR Sportsland Centre Ltd. in old St. Boniface.
Their first expansion was in the fall of 1973 when they purchased three acres of land and built a 4,000 square foot building at 1370 Dugald Road.
GNR Camping World was born
In the mid-70s the name was changed to operate as GNR Camping World.
