In what has become a highly anticipated semiannual tradition for the Lance Owners of America (LOA) club, the Friday night event was part of a weekend-long LOA rally held at the Acton, Calif., KOA campground. “The event gets bigger and better every year,” said Jack Cole, Lance president and CEO in a press release. “We truly enjoy spending time with our customers and are honored to be able to host a nice barbecue and show off our facility we are so proud of.”

Marketing Director Bob Rogers added, “We were able to show the club our brand new, enhanced Ultra Light travel trailers and truck campers, which were both very well received. I have to give a shout out to our key supplier partners who helped make the event a hit by donating awesome raffle prizes, specifically in the case of Torklift, who showed unparalleled generosity by donating $3,000 to the LOA, which was simply outstanding.”

Lance also announced that all LOA members would also be receiving a free one-year membership to the all-new AmeriGo RV Club. Mike Schneider, AmeriGo president, was on hand to commemorate the occasion and share details about the clubs benefits.

LOA President Eric Dye noted, “Lance has really outdone themselves this time. The highlight of the 2014 national Lance rally was our visit to the factory for an opportunity to see how our Lance campers and trailers are made. Lance literally rolled out the red carpet for us, gave us unrestricted access to the plant floor and fed us a wonderful barbecue meal with all the fixin’s. We all really enjoyed ourselves. Can’t wait until the next one.”
