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.
She addressed the Bourbon Board of Aldermen last Tuesday.
Kuenzel and her husband, Mike, have expressed their issue with this particular RV several times. In May, the board passed an ordinance that said any motor homes, campers and travel trailers on city streets have just 72 hours of parking before they must be moved.
When city attorney Bob Davis asked Police Chief Mike Pennock if any ticket was issued, Pennock said no.
Ward 2 Alderman Mike Delashmit said there is only so much the board can do.
“We can’t confiscate the RV. We can send him a fine. There’s a series of things that happen,” said Delashmit. “It’s not instantaneous.”
Davis agreed that it is not instantaneous, but that the law is being broken.
He told Kuenzel that the next time it happens, she can call him. Davis said he and Pennock will go speak with the offender and notify him that he’s in violation of the ordinance.
The fine is $500.
Davis investigated the situation before the ordinance was signed into law and found that the RV was obstructing the view of drivers and that it was unsafe.
Kuenzel has described how difficult it is to back out of the driveway.
The issue between Kuenzel and the RV owner has been ongoing. He is an out-of-state resident who comes to periodically visit his mother.
Delashmit said that Kuenzel should notify the police as soon as the RV arrives.
“The clock starts when they get there,” he said.

Fleetwood RV is recalling certain model year 2013 Excursion motor homes manufactured from March 27, 2012, through July 24, 2012. A threaded fastener installed on the turn shaft of the slide-out mechanism may come into contact with a portion of the diesel fuel fill hose while the turn shaft is rotating. If the fastener makes contact with the fuel fill hose, there is a possibility that it will abrade the fuel fill hose and cause a leak.
Leaking fuel, in the presence of an ignition source, increases the risk of a fire.
Fleetwood RV will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, as necessary, shorten the threaded fastener to achieve clearance of the fuel line free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during August 2012. Owners may contact Fleetwood RV owner relations at 1-800-509-3418.
Fleetwood RV’s safety recall number is 120813FRV. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
