RecNation Partners with TowerCo To Build Wireless Towers Across its RV and Marine Storage Portfolio

Launched in 2020 by former CyrusOne CEO Gary “Wojo” Wojtaszek, RecNation is leveraging the advent of new 5G and Small Cell technologies to spring up wireless towers across its six-states-and-growing portfolio.

Dallas-based RecNation Storage—an RV and marine storage company launched in 2020 by a former CyrusOne CEO—has expanded its operations step by step in the years since. It doubled down on its RecRental move into the peer-to-peer RV rental space with a white-glove management service, and launched RecExec and RecResale last October to deliver marketing, sales, and operational expertise to its industry while offering RV consignment sales to its customers.

And now RecNation is expanding into something related, but altogether different—digital infrastructure.

The company announced this week that it’s partnering with TowerCo, which will build  and manage wireless towers across RecNation’s portfolio of 57 properties across the country.

“The partnership with TowerCo is a creative and complementary way to further diversify and enhance the income streams generated by each of our properties,” Gary “Wojo” Wojtaszek, “Chief Camper” and Founder of RecNation, said in a statement. “The advent of the new 5G and Small Cell technologies are requiring more and more transmission points to broadcast all of the data required by the new data-intensive services that are being brought to market, particularly with the explosion in data being created by artificial intelligence.”

Wojtaszek said his properties are “ideal” for this type of wireless tower project, as they tend to be located in areas “that would be receptive to this type of development.” 

“I spent a good portion of my career in digital infrastructure, having previously managed and sold a substantial wireless tower portfolio,” Wojtaszek noted. 

Todd Boyer, CEO of TowerCo, said his company is one of the largest developers of wireless communication towers in the nation, with “extensive relationships with every wireless operator in the country.”

Along with the announcement, Wojtaszek said that RecNation aims to expand its footprint to “350 locations across the country.”
