"They have always taken care of the customer, taken care of each other, and taken care of me."
 
"We are in unprecedented times, and we are all making sacrifices, but it is important for us all to do more, and I’m reaching into my pocket to protect the team," he added.
 
Lemonis recently purchased $1.7 million of Camping World Stock, according to Barron’s.
