Outdoors RV Manufacturing Inc. recently announced the winner of its “Welcome to the Outdoors Sweepstakes.” Rick and Ann Gray of Bellingham, Wash., had their name picked from a total of over 50,000 entries. The couple will be presented with the grand prize – a brand new 2012 18F BackCountry travel trailer – later this month at Sumner RV where they entered the drawing. The retailer, based in Sumner, Wash., was one of over 50 Outdoors RV dealers that helped promote the sweepstakes earlier this year. The sweepstakes promotion was an avenue to help the Outdoors RV dealer partners bring customers into their dealerships to showcase the “climate designed-off road” travel trailer products that the builder produces at its manufacturing facility in La Grande, Ore.
