Entrance at the 2012 California RV Show

The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) has announced that Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) will sponsor the mock campground entrance at the 61st Annual California RV Show and that KOA CEO Jim Rogers will be a featured speaker at the event.

The mock campground was very popular with attendees and guests after being unveiled as the main entry point at last year’s show. Show attendees walk through the exhibit to see RVs in a campground setting before moving on to the main exhibition areas, according to a news release.

This year’s mock campground will cover 15,000 square feet of exhibit space and feature 10 RV products, including two Fleetwood Class A motorhomes, two Tiffin Class A motorhomes, a Winnebago Class A motorhome, a Thor Class A motorhome, two Columbia Northwest folding camping trailers, and a Pleasure-Way Class B motorhome.

KOA will also have one of its Deluxe Cabins on display for attendees to visit. The 40-foot unit built by Cavco Industries Inc. features an upstairs sleeping loft, flat screen TVs, queen bed suite, full bath and full kitchen. KOA staff will be on hand to answer questions and help make reservations.

“We are delighted to be part of the California RV Show,” said Scott Corey, owner of the Ventura Ranch KOA. “Our cabins and teepees have been a huge hit with campers at our campground. The Deluxe Cabin that will be on display is a great example of ‘glamping.’ Attendees will see that they can enjoy a great outdoor vacation even if they don’t own an RV and be introduced to the RV and camping lifestyle.”

Rogers will be at the show on Saturday, Oct. 12 at 1 p.m. in the Seminar Tent to review the exciting things KOA is doing nationwide, discuss his appearance on the popular CBS program Undercover Boss, and meet and greet show attendees.

The 61st Annual California RV Show will take place at The Fairplex in Pomona, Calif., from Oct. 11 – 20. For more information visit or contact Tom Gaither, RVIA’s western whow director at (818) 248-6600 or
