CNBC has announced a new primetime original series Streets of Dreams with Marcus Lemonis, highlighting the stories of the entrepreneurs and the unique business cultures that define America’s most iconic streets.

Among other things, Lemonis is the CEO of Camping World and the Good Sam Club.

In the five-episode series premiering Tuesday, December 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, Lemonis travels across the country, pulling back the curtain on the most renowned and influential streets that fuel America’s most vital business cultures. From diamond dealing on Manhattan’s 47th Street, to country music on Nashville’s Music Row, to the marijuana industry on Denver’s Green Mile, Lemonis shares the stories of those determined to make it in America.

“I love all aspects of business, but the most intriguing part to me is the people,” said Lemonis. “Normally, I invest in business, but I’ve always said we need to ‘bet on humanity,’ and in this show I was able to peel back the layers of some of these iconic streets in business and understand how the people behind them have kept them running so successfully for generations. From Little Havana to Harbor Drive, there are some incredible stories and we get to show viewers the importance of how people can build dreams together.”

Filmed prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, Streets of Dreams with Marcus Lemonis features unprecedented access to the men and women who ply their trades on these streets every single day – the small business owners, innovators, old-school craftspeople, hustlers and industry power players. Lemonis reveals who’s got what it takes to thrive in an ever-changing economic landscape.

Watch the trailer for the new series.

I’m a current employee of his at a camping world. Alot of negativity. He takes care of his employees. Working for him is great. His is also very much about customer service. Our camping world in Albuquerque New Mexico is one to visit. Clean and up to code. Always stocked with great product. Service on units is fast and proficient. Great variety of units for sale. Come visit.

But I will watch. He’s a smart man. All about business and family.
Good luck Marcus

Why do you need a club card to purchase items when you can go on Amazon site or your local Wal-Mart store and purchase same items for less for what camping world sells for. He maybe takes care of his employees but he sure ain’t taking care of his customers after the sale. I have never purchased anything from camping world and I never will. Reading all of the “negative reviews” very few far and between good reviews I had to go into one of the camping world locations and check it out for myself and I was not impressed, salesperson would not leave me alone all I came in to do is look around and if I had any questions I would find someone to help me, I had leave before I would punch the man in the mouth.
I purchased my travel trailer directly from the factory and it was whole lot cheaper and no salesperson to deal with. So tell your ceo to talk to his customers before he goes on national tv and makes a fool of himself.

Ah, let’s see. Big businessman and then star on tv… who knows, maybe run for president. Sound familiar?

This is just like a Grisham book. Hopefully, some smart young lawyer will bring this guy and his family of companies to their knees and bankrupt them so legitimate companies can get back in business.

Maybe, just maybe Marcus should travel all lower 48 and Alaska in an RV with big signs plastered on the sides “CEO – Marcus of Camper World” staying at RB sites and get the real feed back from RVers whom are a little peeved about his junk selling dealerships. Until he can clean up his image in the camping industry I’m boycotting his series. Maybe Bezzo of Amazon will purchase CW got prime you got free delivery how cool is that.

Are you kidding me?!?! His company is the worst run in the RV business. He knows nothing about customer service and his dealerships are the laughing stick of the industry. What a crock!

I was Good Sam member. A lot of smoke but little steak. I could relate lots of examples but will relate one. Shopping for new travel trailer. Went to Camping World. Was informed because I am Good Sam member I will get best deal possible. I found trailer I liked. The deal they offered was 6000. more than another rv dealer. When I informed them they just blew me off.

Won’t even set foot in a camping world for anything, so why would I watch him on TV, no thanks I will pass. And if the issue of Highways I received in the mail yesterday (replaced trailer life magazine) is any example of what this new publication is going to be like, I will cancel that subscription. Basically a glorified add for Campers world with a few articles in it.

Lot of negativity about Lemonis on these forums. Guess I don’t totally get why. If you don’t like his TV shows, don’t watch. If you don’t like CW, don’t go there. As for the quality of RV’s, you get what you pay for. It isn’t a dealers responsibility to do your homework. As for the man, who knows. He just saved NHRA. He’s a high profile billionaire, so he’s going to make some enemies. As for one comment saying he hates half of America because he has a political preference, makes one think think who really hates Americans.

I agree George, nobody is holding a gun to your head to patronize CW or watch his TV show.

I am continually amazed at all of the negativity regarding every possible situation. Have we become so “anti” that when we make a bad decision or things don’t work out as we want, we go on a mud-slinging campaign. Growup people.

Dude really needs to focus on improving CW. Especially the new coaches that are sold. Numerous and far too often I am seeing complaints all over the board. Focus Marcus…focus.

I will watch the program. I find the subject matter interesting. It might give me some insight on the man himself but more importantly on people and their businesses.

I’m assuming you meant “Marcus” instead of “chuck,” Greg. The last I heard, Chuck isn’t selling campers. 😆 –Diane at RVtravel.com

While I’m NO fan of Lemonis, this show could be a ‘good watch’. And for the most part, I like CNBC.

If you watch this promo on YouTube you’ll see a huge fan base in the comment section that loves Lemonis and can’t wait to see this. So, aside from us RV’ers who are NOT fans of his because of what he’s done with Camping World and the Good Sam Club, it seems the rest of the world loves him . . .

Therein lies the issue. Lemonis is seen by different folks in diffing light. Unfortunately, only those who have an axe to grind take to the anonymity of comment lines to lament their abuse.
