Indianapolis Family Wins Keystone Passport
As young newlyweds, Andrew and Sara Cain tent camped spring, summer and fall. “It was something we really enjoyed,” said Andrew. “But when our first child, Ayla, came along, we quickly realized that babies and tent camping aren’t a good experience. We knew we needed to get an RV.”
However, the recent economic downturn put a speed bump in the Indianapolis, Ind., family’s plans. An unemployed industrial electrician, Andrew has been working over the past year in lawn maintenance to make ends meet for his wife and two young daughters. So when they were notified of their good fortune in winning a Keystone Passport travel travel as part of a national “Live Your Dreams Sweepstakes” co-promoted by Keystone and publisher Affinity Group Inc., the family was ecstatic.
“Even after Andrew talked to the people at Keystone, I had to call the company myself just to hear it with my own ears,” laughed Sara Cain. “Things like this don’t happen to us. I couldn’t believe it was real.”
Indeed, Sara, Andrew, daughters Ayla, 4, and Anna, 1, will now go camping in a new Passport ultra lite bunkhouse model.
“We took the girls into our local Keystone Passport dealership to see the kind of trailer we had won,” said Andrew. “The girls explored the trailer and checked out their beds. I think they were ready to camp out right on the showroom floor.”
Keystone RV Co. President Bob Martin, on hand to deliver the new unit to the Cain family, was openly touched with the whole experience.
“Helping a family’s dreams come true is what the Keystone ‘Live Your Dreams’ contest is all about,” said Martin, whose company, a division of Thor Industries Inc., is headquartered in Goshen, Ind. “There are certainly strong business reasons for sponsoring the sweepstakes. However, seeing the Cains take delivery of their new Passport is tremendously gratifying for Keystone and our dealers. First hand, we witness the enjoyment our RVs bring to a family. And with two more Keystone RVs to be given away in the ‘Live Your Dreams Sweepstakes,’ two more families will have the opportunity to fulfill their dreams.”
The Keystone Live Your Dreams RV Sweepstakes promotion, which reaches more than five million current and prospective RV owners monthly through the web sites, publications and retail show promotions of Ventura, Calif.-based Affinity, concludes in March with the giveaway of a Keystone Montana Mountaineer.
