New York Times, Fox News Highlight RV Travel

Coverage last week by the New York Times, Fox News and About.com focused the national media spotlight on RV travel.

In the “Wheels” column on nytimes.com, automotive reporter Ezra Dyer provided a very positive review of a 2013 Winnebago Via motorhome that he used for a family beach trip in a loan arranged by RVIA’s public relations team. He reported “the Via is actually quite pleasant to drive” and also that the motorhome was the envy of his beach neighbors, who asked, “Is that thing as awesome on the inside as it looks from the outside?”

In another loan of a Winnebago Via arranged by RVIA, About.com published an article by travel writer Mark Kahler’s trip from Colorado to Las Vegas. “On our test drive of the Winnebago Via, my wife immediately noticed a big advantage RV travelers enjoy: the view. The windshield is large, allowing scenic surroundings to be much more visible as you drive. This makes the trip far more enjoyable,” he wrote. The online coverage also provided comprehensive information on RV travel and camping topics.

On Wednesday, Aug. 22, Fox News highlighted three vehicles – a Roadtrek N6-Active type B motorhome, a Fleetwood Tioga type C (provided by El Monte) and a Winnebago Via type A, in several segments throughout the morning broadcast. FMCA spokesperson Ralph Marino toured the vehicles and told viewers about the continued popularity of RV travel and ownership.  The GoRVing.com website was also promoted throughout the various segments.
