Camping World, a leading retailer of recreational vehicles and aftermarket parts and accessories, today (Jan. 13) announced their selection in the 11th installment of NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” featuring American business mogul Donald Trump.
Camping World was chosen among several Fortune 500 companies to be featured as a task sponsor on a 2011 outdoor recreation segment, according to a news release. Donald Trump commented, “Camping World is the largest recreational vehicle retailer in the country and we were very pleased to have them on the show. I think the episode is like nothing we’ve ever done.”
“We are pleased to be a part of a pop culture phenomenon such as ‘The Apprentice’ Celebrity Edition,” remarked Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World. “In the spring 2011 stay tuned to see the RV and camping enthusiast merge into city life.”
“RVIA and Go RVing work diligently to promote RV travel and camping, but the efforts of our industry’s companies are critical to this effort too,” said Recreation Vehicle Industry Association President Richard Coon. “Having RV travel featured on such a popular program as ‘The Apprentice’ will generate great exposure for the RV market and help boost consumer awareness.”
The 11th season premiere of “The Celebrity Apprentice” is scheduled to debut Sunday, March 6, on NBC at 9/8 Central. Camping World will be featured in the third episode. Air date is subject to change.
