Pennsylvania Celebrates RV/Camping Month
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett has proclaimed the month of May as “Recreation Vehicle and Camping Month” for the 23rd straight year, according to a press release.
“The unique sites, history and culture of Pennsylvania can be discovered by the entire family from the comfort and convenience of recreational vehicles,” he said. “I encourages all citizens to pursue their passions and escape with their families on the road across the farthest reaches of our state.”
RVing and camping continues to be a strong force for Pennsylvania’s economy. From campgrounds that extend to the outermost corners of the state to RV dealerships, suppliers, distributors and service providers, Pennsylvania is an example of how people embrace the joys and benefits of RVing.
As host to the industry’s largest industry and retail show in the country at the Giant Center in Hershey, (www.largestRVshow.com), Pennsylvania introduces consumers to the latest products the RV industry has to offer. Visitors are even welcomed into Pennsylvania with seven statewide billboards directing them to the Pennsylvania RV and Camping Association (PRVCA) website.
Rebecca Lenington, PRVCA executive vice president, noted, “In conjunction with the governor’s proclamation, PRVCA is kicking off its annual Open House campaign. The goal of the Open House campaign is to direct consumers to their local campgrounds and dealerships and expose them to the many benefits of RV ownership and the freedom that traveling by RV provides.” To view the campgrounds and RV dealerships in your area, visit www.prvca.org and click on “Member Listings.”
Not only does the RV industry offer a great way to discover Pennsylvania, but it also offers career opportunities and apprenticeships to the many campgrounds and RV dealerships across the state of Pennsylvania. People can even become a trained RV technician from the comfort and convenience of their home with online instruction. For more details, visit www.prvca.org and click on “Training.”
