Private camping club operator Thousand Trails LP has announced the launch of a new website, www.thousandtrails.com.
Thousand Trails’ new site provides visitors destination information and trip planning resources for its 59 camping preserves in the U.S. and British Columbia, Canada, including a streaming video tour, family vacation ideas and real time weather forecasts and statistics.
“With 79% of motorhome and travel trailer owners having a home computer and another 31% of motorhome owners and 34% of travel trailer owners using the Internet to make purchases, we listened to our customers and created this interactive website in response to their needs,” said Jerry Gelinas, vice president sales and marketing for the Frisco, Texas-based company.
The website also features a fuel calculator providing estimated costs for summer road trips.
“With the rising costs of gas, Thousand Trails wanted to provide its consumers with a resource to estimate costs when planning a summer road trip,” said Gelinas.
The website launch corresponds with National Tourism Week, May 7 – 15, and consumers making on-line camping reservations have the chance to enter Thousand Trails’ $10,000 cash sweepstakes.
