When Randy Scianna announced in April he planned to move his charming, almost campy RV dealership from a San Martin lot to a huge abandoned former Walmart store in Gilroy, unabashed optimism reigned.

Saturday’s grand opening of the new See Grins RVs, at 7900 Arroyo Circle, was a milestone not just for the business, but for the old Walmart building itself, which, at more than 120,000 square feet, might now be the biggest RV showroom in the United States.

See Grins’ new home will feature 350 RVs, including 120 inside under the lights arranged via size and price, with the biggest, most-expensive RVs at the end of every row.

Competing for shoppers attention will be a small coffee shop, a burger cafe and a flat screen TV showing episodes of famed 1960s talking horse sitcom Mr. Ed, the latter a play on See Grins’ famous wide-smiled equine mascot.

Scianna said visitors munched on 350 burgers and 100 hot dogs over the opening weekend, and more than 20 RVs were sold. On Monday, more than 100 people were lined up to browse the dealership, Scianna said.
