Billings, Mont.-based Kampgrounds of America Inc., (KOA) has teamed with Mission Hills, Calif.-based Valterra Products Inc. to introduce a full line of RV accessories and cleaners — KOA RV Essentials – for sale through KOA’s 438-park network as well as other retail outlets, including recreational vehicle dealerships.
The KOA RV Essentials line includes products in the accessory, fresh water and sanitation categories, as well as cleaners, according to a KOA release. Among the key products are awning clamps, awning tie downs, fridge fans, water regulators, drinking water fresheners, waste valves, sewer drain hoses and a bug-and-tar remover.
The licensed partnership between Valterra, a leading RV industry supplier, and KOA, the world’s largest system of campgrounds, “brings quality RV products to the RVer from names they know and trust,” the release states.
“We were excited for the opportunity to work with Valterra,” reports Ken Stellmacher, KOA’s vice president of marketing. “Both brands were built by meeting campers’ needs. The partnership is a great fit.”
“Over 90% of RVers recognize the KOA name,” added Valterra President George Gengs. “Now we can offer a quality line of RV supplies under a name the RVers have come to associate with a great camping experience.”
