Camping World, the nation’s largest RV and outdoor retailer, and its affiliated Good Sam, the world’s largest RV owner’s organization, announced that after taking 2014 off, they would resume their rally in 2015.
The Camping World/Good Sam Rally will make its grand re-entrance to the industry in Phoenix March 19-22 at the Phoenix International Raceway, the companies said in a written announcement.
With the growth the Good Sam Club has experienced over the past few years, expanding to more than 1.5 million members in the U.S. and Canada, attendance at the rallies went up as well, limiting the number of locations that can host such a large RV gathering.
“Many Good Sam Club members and RV industry personnel have been inquiring about the absence of the rally in 2014,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises. “In order to continue to provide the best experience to rallygoers, it was necessary to take time to reevaluate our options and search for the right locations to accommodate and meet the growing number of members’ needs for these events,” explained Lemonis.
The March 2015 Camping World/Good Sam Rally location was determined based on the response received from both members and exhibitors and overall success of the event at the previous rallyheld in Phoenix in 2012. The 2015 rally will have even more to offer attendees with the latest in RV models and outdoor products, new and improved RV and camping seminars and activities and world-class entertainment.
“It is our pleasure to facilitate an event that brings together thousands of RV enthusiasts from all over the country to celebratethe RV lifestyle, enjoy fun activities, great food, prizes and quality time with family and friends. We are excited to announce thereturn of America’s largest RV rally to the RV community,” said Lemonis.
The Pennsylvania RV & Camping Association (PRVCA) announced the release of the 2013 edition of Explore Pennsylvania.
The official PRVCA membership directory and consumer magazine features 52 pages of RV and camping tips designed to give readers the latest information in RV trends and make their next adventure to Pennsylvania a great one, according to a news release from the Camp Hill, Pa.-based PRVCA.
This year’s publication features 14 different Pennsylvania farm markets to explore, seasonal camping information, tips on how to stay connected to the RV community, fun at America’s Largest RV Show and more.
This guide contains a PRVCA membership directory connecting readers to campgrounds, RV dealers, RV suppliers, RV manufacturers and other services. The listings contain contact information and a brief description of the products and services available.
The dealerships and campgrounds are divided into five geographic regions making it easy to find an RV dealer or campground in the location desired. Manufacturers, service, suppliers, transport, rentals, press, insurance, finance, distributors, associations and after market dealers are listed alphabetically by category. The guide also includes attractions and events in each geographic area.
PRVCA said 75,000 copies of Explore Pennsylvania will be distributed at over 40 RV shows throughout the East Coast (including America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, Pa.). The magazine will also be on PRVCA’s website, at member locations, at welcome centers along the Pennsylvania Turnpike, through Pennsylvania visitor’s bureaus and at the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Ind.
