In the late 1940's, Anges Smith purchased a piece of property at 342 North Bay Drive. This became Smith Trailer Sales. When Smith Trailer Sales moved, the property on North Bay Drive. was sold to Gilbert Abbott. Mr. Abbott named the business Gib's Trailer Sales. Mr. Abbott remained at the North Bay Drive location until about 1956 until it moved to 1845 Ocean Blvd.
The business sold mobile homes but they also sold campers and travel trailers. Gib's also did repairs and service on the units they sold. Gilbert Abbott sold Gib's to Leon H. Thorne in approximately 1971. The basic operation remained the same throughout most of the time Mr. Thorne owned Gib's. Toward the end of Mr. Thorne's ownership, he did start phasing out the sale of mobile homes. Leon sold Gib's Trailer Sales in March of 1986 to Edward D. Eckes. Mr. Eckes renamed the business to Gib's Rv's and incorporated. Ed introduced new motorhomes to the Gib's RV's Inc. throughout his ownership.
Edward Eckes sold Gib's RV's Inc., in July of 1997 to William Leslie and Daniel McCarren. Bill and Dan have continued the ongoing improvements and upgrades and in 2004 renamed the company to Gib's RV's Superstore.
