New Go RVing Ads Air During Popular Vancouver Olympic Games

Go RVing’s 105-spot Winter Olympics buy, which targeted a huge family viewing audience, rolled out Saturday, February 13 on NBC’s live coverage of men’s ski jumping and continued through the Games’ conclusion on February 28. The Vancouver Winter Games were the second-most watched ever, with a total of 190 million Americans tuning in to coverage on the networks of NBC Universal, which include NBC, CNBC, USA, MSNBC and Universal Sports. 


“The Olympics viewing audience is a great fit for Go RVing,” said RVIA Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Gary LaBella. “Across the country, American families watched the games together and saw Go RVing’s terrific new Ambassadors of Affordability TV ads while they cheered on their country.”


Go RVing’s winter sports ad exposure will continue through March, with an additional 454 spots airing during Universal Sports’ programming coverage of World Cup Alpine Skiing, the Track & Field World Championships, American Cup Gymnastics, US Freestyle Ski Cup and more.  Universal Sports’ coverage is being widely heralded, with USA Today reporting, “The shows shine in the quality, variety, and bracing honesty of the talk they provide.”


Go RVing’s $8.25 million media plan, designed to reach prospects with a wide variety of interests and media habits, will give the “Go Affordably. Go RVing” campaign broad exposure at a pivotal time in the industry’s recovery.
