Fleetwood RV, a producer of Class A and Class C recreational vehicles, has announced a Military Savings Program available from April 28 – May 31, 2012.

The Military Savings Program offers active duty military and veterans a manufacturer’s rebate of up to $5,000 on the purchase of an eligible model year 2012 and older new, unused and unregistered Fleetwood or American Coach motorhome.

“We’re proud to be able to salute our U.S. military and provide this savings for military members and their families,” commented John Draheim, President & CEO of Fleetwood RV. “It’s our way of saying thanks for the sacrifices and service to our country. We trust this helps the active and retired military personnel relax and enjoy everyday life. We hope they take advantage of this offer and enjoy all a Fleetwood RV motorhome has to offer its customers. ”

Active duty military personnel or veterans of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Marines, National Guard, Navy, or Coast Guard must submit a completed savings certificate available at FleetwoodRV.com/military and present a valid State ID along with a form of military identification at the point of purchase from an authorized Fleetwood RV dealer. Additional eligibility requirements and details are available from the website.

“As a former Chief Warrant Officer for the U.S. Army and a current Fleetwood RV owner, I want to thank Fleetwood for creating this program in recognition for those who serve and have served our country,” stated Fleetwood Motorhome Association President, Sam Whitaker. “This program provides a great opportunity for military families to reconnect and recharge after the separation and challenges faced during deployment.”
