Colman Camp Trailer Contest

Coleman Tent Campers by Livin Lite, Yogi Bear’s Jellystone ParkCamp-Resorts, and RV Trader.com are launching a nationwide giveaway of a $10,000 Coleman ultra lightweight automotive tent camper. Livin Lite is a major manufacturer of lightweight travel trailers and tent campers.  Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts is one of the most popular campground chains in the U.S.  RV Trader.com is the country’s leading RV classifieds website for buyers and sellers.

In addition to the 2014 Coleman camper grand prize winner, there will also be twelve weekly winners who receive a two-night camping stay at any of the 81 Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts in the U.S. and Canada. The promotion runs for 12 weeks and ends June 30, 2014.  A winner will be selected for the grand prize at the conclusion of the contest period and will be notified by July 15, 2014.

Livin Lite is very excited to reintroduce the iconic Coleman brand to the camping market,” shared Scott Tuttle, president of Livin Lite. “We are thrilled to be a part of this exciting giveaway with Jellystone and RV Trader.com! Statistics from the outdoor industries (campgrounds, national and local parks, etc.) tell us that more than 40 million people enjoy tent camping each year. Many simply pack up their tent and camping gear in their current family vehicle.  The all-new Coleman automotive tent camper that we are giving away is designed specifically for those driving smaller, fuel-efficient vehicles such as passenger cars, minivans and today’s popular crossovers.”

The Coleman camper is an automotive tent camper that can be easily pulled by an array of vehicles, opening up to reveal a spacious interior that can sleep up to six people.  Made entirely of lightweight aluminum and composites, the Coleman camper is built for longevity. With exteriors available in a wide selection of colors, the Coleman camper can be color-matched to a family’s car or minivan. It is the perfect entry-level camper for those who currently enjoy tent camping in Jellystone Parks. The Coleman tent campers are sold exclusively in Camping World locations.

“This is a fun giveaway for us and the camping public,” said Michele Wisher, director of marketing for Yogi Bear’s Jellystone ParkCamp-Resorts. “Twelve families will camp at a Jellystone Park for free, and we get to promote the benefits of camping and outdoor vacations.”

Christine Knapp, marketing manager for RV Trader.com, mirrored their enthusiasm. “We are excited that RV Trader can help spread the word about this promotion to our 2 million site visitors every month. Livin Lite has helped pave the way by bringing newer RV’ers into the lifestyle, and many families with children stay at Jellystone Camp-Resorts every year. This is an excellent way for us to reach a new audience and spread the excitement of RV’ing to buyers, sellers and shoppers visiting our website this spring and summer.”

Thor Industries announced Tuesday that it acquired the assets of  recreational vehicle maker Livin’ Lite through a wholly-owned subsidiary. The purchase is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to be completed by Aug. 30, 2013.

“We are pleased to welcome Livin’ Lite to the Thor family of RV brands. Adding such a creative RV maker to Thor’s strong stable of brands will enable us to expand our industry-leading position in new product development into camping trailers and truck campers,” said Bob Martin, Thor president and chief executive officer.

“We see many opportunities for expanding Livin’ Lite’s market presence through the Thor dealer network, and the ability to leverage their lightweight aluminum and composite construction technology in other Thor products. This transaction represents a solid example of executing our strategic plan to grow our RV presence through the acquisition of brands and technologies that complement our existing business.”

Founded by former Heartland executive Scott Tuttle, Wakarusa, Ind.-based Livin’ Lite is known for its advanced lightweight aluminum construction applied to a variety of smaller RVs, including travel trailers, toy haulers, camping trailers and truck campers. Livin’ Lite also markets its products in partnership with a number of leading consumer brands including Jeep. Having recently been named to Inc. magazine’s list of fastest growing companies for the third consecutive year, Livin’ Lite is expected to generate sales of approximately $24 million for calendar year 2013.

“We are excited to join forces with Thor, the leading company in the RV industry, and we are looking forward to the new growth opportunities we should see as a result,” said Scott Tuttle, president, CEO and founder of Livin’ Lite. “We have worked diligently to grow Livin’ Lite over the past five years and expect to extend that growth as we bring the distribution, operational and financial strengths of Thor to bear on our business. As the newest company to join Thor, we also expect to add to our combined development efforts as we apply our proprietary technology to a broader array of existing product lines and bring our combined market strength to camping trailers and truck campers.”

Thor expects to offer Livin’ Lite’s current 35 models to its current dealer network upon closing of the transaction. The Company expects Livin’ Lite will continue to operate out of its existing Wakarusa facilities with minimal disruption to its current business resulting from the acquisition.
