Camping World and Good Sam Announce the Return of "The Rally" for 2015

LINCOLNSHIRE, IL--(Marketwired - May 8, 2014) -  Camping World, the nation's largest RV and outdoor retailer, and Good Sam, the world's largest RV owner's organization, proudly announce the return of The Rally in 2015. Back by popular demand and bigger than ever before; the Camping World/Good Sam Rally will make its grand reentrance to the industry in Phoenix, AZ from March 19 through 22 at the Phoenix International Raceway.

With the tremendous growth the Good Sam Club has experienced over the past few years, expanding to over 1.5 million members in the United States and Canada, attendance at the Rallies has soared as well, limiting the number of locations that can host such a large RV gathering. "Many Good Sam Club members and RV industry personnel have been inquiring about the absence of the Rally in 2014," said Marcus Lemonis, Chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises. "In order to continue to provide the best experience to rally-goers, it was necessary to take time to reevaluate our options and search for the right locations to accommodate and meet the growing number of members' needs for these events," explains Lemonis.

The March 2015 Camping World/Good Sam Rally location was determined based on the terrific response received from both members and exhibitors and overall success of the event at the previous rally held in Phoenix, AZ in 2012. The 2015 Rally will have even more to offer rally-goers with the latest in RV models and outdoor products, new and improved RV and camping seminars and activities, and world-class entertainment. 

"It is our pleasure to facilitate an event that brings together thousands of RV enthusiasts from all over the country to celebrate the RV lifestyle, enjoy fun activities, great food, prizes and quality time with family and friends. We are excited to announce the return of America's largest RV Rally to the RV community," said Lemonis.
