RV travel and camping vignettes custom-produced by Go RVing’s media partners will once again be a key element of the industry’s national “AWAY” advertising campaign when it kicks off its second year in February.
According to a press release, these vignettes will air on popular networks throughout the year, including Great American Country (GAC), SPEED and the Outdoor Channel.
Filming was just completed in Nashville on the two 60-second “On the Road with GAC” vignettes featuring country music recording artist Chuck Wicks. The spots showcase how Wicks uses his RV to escape the bright lights and pressure of Music City by camping, hunting and fishing with his father, John, and his dogs.
A Forest River Inc. XLR Hyperlite sport utility RV, selected through a lottery, is featured in both vignettes, which will air on GAC between Feb. 18 and June 30, and on GACtv.com.
Go RVing is once again teaming up with SPEED personality Rutledge Wood for a 60-second vignette that features Wood interviewing RVers at Texas Motor Speedway about why RVs are great for family travel and how their units are ideal for tailgating at NASCAR races. It will air 546 times throughout racing season on SPEED, beginning Feb. 18.
The Outdoor Channel will air four vignettes with network talent Pat Reeve and Nicole Jones, hosts of the hunting show Driven, and angler Mark Zona, host of Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show, talking about the appeal of RVs with outdoor enthusiasts. These will air throughout April as part of the network’s “Spring Fever” sweepstakes.
The Outdoor Channel will also be promoting the benefits of RV travel and the sweepstakes through outdoorchannel.com, targeted e-mails and the network’s social media outlets, including a Go RVing co-branded trip itinerary widget. The network will award four National Park RV vacations and the grand prize for the sweepstakes is a Forest River Flagstaff Classic folding camping trailer, also selected in a Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) lottery.
“These vignettes add tremendous value to the campaign by reinforcing the messages in our television commercials as popular network personalities enjoy and endorse RV travel and camping in an entertaining and informative way,” said RVIA Vice President of Public Relations and Advertising James Ashurst.
