Silvio DiSalvatore, father of the New York family that won NBC’s hit summer reality show “Great American Road Trip,” will share his tales from the road as a special guest at the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association’s (RVIA) “Outlook 2010: Let the Sun Shine” Dec. 1 in Louisville, Ky.
The DiSalvatore family members were fan favorites on the show, which showcased the adventures of seven families traveling in motorhomes on a cross-country trek and competing in made-for-TV competitions. With his outgoing personality, Dad Silvio was especially popular with viewers as he brought a little of Yonkers, N.Y. to the great outdoors.
“Not only did Silvio and his family win the competition, they showed America that RVs are a great way for families to travel, to bond and to experience all this country has to offer,” said Gary LaBella, RVIA vice president and chief marketing officer. “He will have a great story to share about his family’s journey and why this RV trip was the best time he has ever had.”
“Outlook 2010: Let the Sun Shine” will kick off RVIA’s 47th Annual National RV Trade Show with a lineup of presentations that will stress a strong message of optimism as the RV industry looks to rebound in the coming year.
