KOA Teams With Keystone, Coleman for Contest

Keystone's new Vantage trailer

Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) has teamed with Keystone RV Co. and The Coleman Co. for “KOA’s 50th Anniversary Giveaway,” according to a press release.

Beginning March 1, campers will be able to register each week for a chance to win one of 50 weeks of free KOA camping anywhere in North America. Once each month, a lucky entrant will also be selected to receive a $500 shopping spree at Coleman.com. And, in October 2012, a camper will be selected to win a $40,000 Vantage travel trailer from Keystone.

Campers can enter their names once each week at www.KOAKompass.com.

“We think this will be a very fun way to celebrate our 50th birthday,” said KOA CEO Jim Rogers. “We partnered with Keystone RV last year to give away a great Keystone Springdale RV, and it proved to be wildly popular with campers. So, being able to offer a brand new Keystone Vantage – which is now in its very first year of production – is a real treat.”

“Our joint promotion with KOA in 2011 was widely successful,” said Matt Zimmerman, president of Goshen, Ind.-based Keystone RV. “This 50th Anniversary KOA celebration is even bigger and better.”

The Vantage trailer is built using curved, laminated fiberglass sidewalls and an arched roof, offering wide-body livability and comfort in a distinctive look. The Vantage interior features contemporary-glazed maple cabinets, two-tone fascia, and an open-air spaciousness.

Rogers said The Coleman Co. – another iconic name in the camping industry – is a natural partner for “KOA’s 50th Anniversary Giveaway.”

“Everyone knows Coleman and the quality that name brings to mind,” he said. “Who hasn’t camped with a Coleman lantern or sleeping bag over the years?”
