Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) President Richard Coon appeared today (Nov. 12) on Fox Network’s highly rated morning show “Fox & Friends” to promote the benefits of RV travel and showcase the amenities found in today’s RVs.
During two segments (click here to view segment 1 and here to view segment 2) that aired live just outside of Fox’s studios in Manhattan, Coon gave viewers a tour of a Class A Fleetwood Discovery motorhome and a Bullet Premier Ultra Lite travel trailer from Keystone RV, the RVIA reported in a news release. The two fully loaded units were among several offered by RVIA manufacturer members for possible use in the report, which focused on RVs as the ultimate “glamping” or glamorous camping – a popular new travel trend.
As he toured each vehicle, Coon highlighted the many reasons why RV travel is popular and pointed out the many comforts and conveniences available to consumers, including gourmet galleys, entertainment centers and comfortable living, dining and bedroom suites.
“This has everything you have in your house,” said Coon.
In addition to today’s coverage on “Fox & Friends,” the RV industry has recently been featured on NBC ‘s “Weekend Today,” CNBC and Fox Business Network, as a result of aggressive media outreach by RVIA and its public relations agency, Barton Gilanelli & Associates.
