Go RVing, Sports Illustrated Campus Tailgate Tour Rolls On

The Sports Illustrated (SI) On Campus Tailgate Tour presented by Go RVing rolled into the Pacific Northwest with a stop at the Oregon State– University of Colorado football game taking place in Corvallis, OR Saturday, Sept. 28.

The tour kicked off at the Syracuse – Penn State game at MetLife Stadium in New York before heading to West Lafayette, IN for the Indiana State – Purdue University game earlier this month.

Featuring a Winnebago Adventurer type A motorhome and a Keystone RV travel trailer as the centerpieces, the tour is a high-impact, on-site consumer event that showcases RVs as ideal tailgate vehicles and provide fans the opportunity to tour the units. Several thousand consumers have toured the two units through the first half of the tour.

There are also other fan engagement activities, including tailgate cooking competitions, games and giveaways, and autograph and photo opportunities with Sports Illustrated personalities and college football alumni. Videos are being shot at each stop and aired on SI.com website properties.

The tour is scheduled to hit the TCU – Oklahoma game in Norman, OK on Oct. 5; the Florida – LSU game in Baton Rouge, LA on Oct. 12; and the Auburn – Texas A&M game in College Station on Oct. 19.

An online sweepstakes is also part of the tour with the grand prize winner awarded a 2014 Keystone travel trailer featuring an outdoor kitchen that is perfect for tailgating and camping. The sweepstakes runs through Nov. 29.
