Keystone Unit Changes Missouri Couple’s Luck
Sue Gillenwater of Eagle Rock, Mo., claims she never had “much luck.”
However, her luck changed for the better in a big way recently when she was named the winner of a new Hornet travel trailer in Keystone RV Co.’s Live Your Dreams national sweepstakes promotion.
“When I entered the Keystone sweepstakes online, I never expected to win. I’ve never won anything before,” said Gillenwater, when notified of her good fortune. “This is hard to believe. I’m thankful. This really makes my day. You can’t imagine!”
Sue and her husband Wayne are retired Air Force vets who now plan to “live their dream.”
She added, “We camped with our children when they were young, graduating from tents to pop-up campers. But as the children grew and job responsibilities tied us down, we no longer had the opportunity to take off and travel. We really missed RVing and were looking forward to enjoying it again, someday; winning this new Keystone Hornet means that someday is now. “
Keystone RV Co. President Bob Martin credits the Live Your Dreams promotion for driving increased traffic to the Keystone web site and generating additional leads for Keystone dealers. According to Martin, “Our dealers are taking advantage of strong consumer interest in Keystone products to reach out to more prospective customers and close more sales.” Martin added, “Our web site traffic is reaching new highs while we see a strong upturn in retail sales.
Launched on March 11, the new Keystone Live Your Dreams RV sweepstakes will target more than 5 million current and prospective RV owners each month through RV websites, trade magazines and retail shows. The sweepstakes is being promoted in Trailer Life and Highways magazines, both Affinity Group Inc. publications, and on related websites.
In addition to the Hornet, three additional Keystone RVs will be given away in the coming months with the final prize, a Keystone Montana Mountaineer, awarded in March 2011. RV enthusiasts can enter to win at www.keystonervgiveaway.com.
