The Good Sam Club, the world’s largest RV owners’ organization, and GMAC Insurance recently launched a year-long initiative to promote safe RVing.
According to a press release, the ‘King of the Rig’ program will stage a series of game-show style competitions designed to test and refresh RVers’ knowledge on the rules of the road and safe RV operation.
The program kicks off at the Arizona State Samboree, March 3-6, and will continue at the Good Sam VIP RV Safety Rally, May 9-13, The Great North American RV Rally (GNARR), July 11-14, and at select Good Sam Samborees throughout the summer and fall of 2005 and into 2006. RVers can enter the competition at ‘King of the Rig’ booths set up during the rallies.
“The King of the Rig program is designed to showcase Good Sam members’ RV knowledge by putting it to the test, and to ultimately strengthen safety awareness for the thousands of families jumping into the RVing lifestyle,” said Sue Bray, executive director of the Good Sam Club. “Drivers spend several hours per week behind the wheel and most don’t take any type of refresher or training course once they have their license. Programs like ‘King of the Rig’ make it fun to test and refresh these skills.”
The Good Sam Club is a unit of Affinity Group Inc., parent of RV Business and RVBUSINESS.com.
