Redwood RV has unveiled the new Blackwood 36BH fifth wheel, a luxury family bunk house model. The coach is big on comfort and style with features designed specifically for families and is expected to continue Redwood RV’s winning product trend.

“At Redwood, we work hard to develop floor plans and features that make sense to the people who use them”, states Paul Craven, Product Manager. “This fundamental philosophy helped launch the Redwood brand, and it’s the basic principle behind the Blackwood product line. The new 36BH is what we call a family bunk house because we filled it with family-friendly features and enough sleeping space for up to eight people.”

At first glance the Blackwood 36BH makes a statement; two separate awnings covering over 22 feet of outdoor living space set the tone. Once inside, the eye is immediately drawn to the foyer bench with four coat hooks, residential bead board design and large storage doors. The kitchen offers over 14 feet of solid surface countertop designed for entertaining family and friends. A private half bath situated near the entry door, and second room makes it easy to entertain and keep the coach clean.

Redwood RV is proud of the extensive research and design built into the Blackwood. Solid cherry hardwood cabinets, solid surface countertops and backsplashes, over 10 feet of usable hang up space in the bedroom wardrobe are all standard features found on each and every Blackwood. Add the Redwood quality difference, and you have a product that is like nothing else in the industry.

DENVER, Colo. — When Laura Franklin went to the Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in Williamsport., Md., she took along her video camera and not only recorded her husband and kids having fun, but interviewed them about what they liked most about the campground they visited.

“They really enjoyed the waterslides,” said Franklin, a Maryland resident and “MommyBlogger” from Better in “The other thing they couldn’t they couldn’t stop talking about was panning for jewels.”

Children Playing at Campground

Franklin also shot footage of her kids playing laser tag and commenting on their rental cabin. With five kids ages 6 to 14, Franklin said park was the perfect place for a family vacation.

“I just enjoyed that we could stay in one place and that the kids could run around like they were at home. We felt very comfortable. There was lots to do, so we didn’t have to travel anywhere else.”

Franklin is one of the first campers to submit a short video in’s “Not Bummer Summer” summer video contest and compete for a chance to win a weeklong RV trip to any affiliated campground in the United States.

“The only requirement is the video be family-friendly, that it capture the essence of having a ‘not bummer summer’ and that it be taken at a campground, RV park or resort featured on the GoCampingAmerica website,” said Kera Tomlin, GoCampingAmerica’s director of marketing.

That’s plenty of venues, considering that more than 3,300 campgrounds, RV parks and resorts are featured on the national travel planning website.

Campers are invited to upload their videos to YouTube and then submit their entry forms along with the YouTube link at All videos must be taken and submitted between June 1 and Labor Day (midnight Sept. 5).

Video entries will be voted on through the “favorites” option on YouTube between June 1, 2011 and Sept. 5. The top two videos with the most “favorite” votes that best depict a “Not Bummer Summer” Camping getaway and most carefully follows the rules and regulations, will then be entered into a drawing and the first randomly drawn will be selected as the grand prize winner and the other entrant will be awarded the 2nd runner up. The third prize winner will be selected amongst the remaining top five votes and entered into a drawing and selected at random. An entrant may recommend to its camping guests, friends and families to “favorite” the entrant’s video on YouTube.

The grand prize winner will receive a weeklong trip in an RV, courtesy of El Monte RV, and free camping at campgrounds. Other prizes include seven days and six nights of lodging at any GoCampingAmerica park, a $100 Camping World gift certificate, plus a $100 movie ticket certificate and other Judy Moody movie related promotional items.
