Christopher Skram of Aurora, Colo., has been selected as the winner of the national RV Tailgate Sweepstakes, sponsored by Go RVing and Sports Illustrated.
Chosen from more than 155,000 entries, Skram took delivery of the 2014 Keystone Passport 2250 Ultra-Light travel trailer at Windish RV in Lakewood, Colo., on Feb. 12 with his wife Alice. According to a press release, the couple just retired from the healthcare field and were already avid RVers, camping, hunting and traveling with their truck camper.
The couple will celebrate their 30th anniversary in July and plan to start traveling more. “Our grandsons will be on spring break soon, and of course they want to be the first to use it,” said Skram. “But after that, Alice and I think our first trip will be to the Rocky Mountain National Park and a huge family reunion in July where everyone camps. I have 11 siblings, Alice has 10, and we have our own two children and grandchildren. There’s a lot of family to see from coast to coast.”
The RV Tailgate Sweepstakes was promoted throughout the Sports Illustrated On Campus Tailgate Tour presented by Go RVing this past fall that featured stops at college football matchups, including Penn State vs. Syracuse, TCU vs. Oklahoma, Florida vs. LSU, and Auburn vs. Texas A&M, as well as on SI.com and through the Go RVing Facebook page.
The tour featured a Winnebago Adventurer Class A motorhome and a Keystone RV travel trailer as the centerpieces to showcase how RVs are the ideal tailgate vehicles and provide fans the opportunity to tour the vehicles and have a hands-on RV tailgate experience. There were also other fan engagement activities, including tailgate cooking competitions, games and giveaways, and autograph and photo opportunities with Sports Illustrated personalities and college football alumni.
