Ashley is a long-time contributor to Woodall’s Campground Management, including penning the column “On Campgrounds” examining timely issues that affect the industry. Ashley has covered the RV industry for nearly 20 years as both a trade writer for RVBusiness and a reporter for enthusiast publications such as Motorhome and Trailer Life. He specializes in writing about the research, development and production of RVs and in his career has covered the industry’s evolution in product development from the frontlines. He also examines key legislative issues affecting the RV industry in his “Public Domain” column inRVBusiness.
“I’ve had the pleasure of being interviewed by Bob as he’s chasing a story. He will challenge you, confound you and question you, no doubt. But at the end of the day when the story is filed, he will educate and enlighten you too,” said RVIA Chairman Doug Gaeddert in presenting the award. “In recognition of his illustrious career covering the RV industry, it is my pleasure to honor Bob with this award.”
The Distinguished Achievement in RV Journalism Award recognizes journalists for exemplary coverage of the RV industry or RV travel before national audiences.
