For the past two years, Susanne O’Donnell made a habit of entering the “What’s Behind Yellow Sign” RV Giveaway sponsored by Keystone RV Co. and Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA). According to a press release, the contest provides one winner with a brand new Keystone Bullet Crossfire travel trailer.
“You sit down with your morning coffee, and you dream a little while you enter,” said O’Donnell, a lifelong New Jersey native who now lives in Bayville, N.J with her husband, Larry.
“I’ve been entering the contest pretty regularly for the past two years,” she said. This month, she got lucky. O’Donnell’s name was drawn from almost a million entries to win the new Keystone travel trailer.
“I think my family members all got pretty tired of me sharing my entries on Facebook,” she laughed. “It really became a habit.”
The O’Donnells had owned a popup camper until last year, when an illness made it hard for Larry to handle the tent trailer. “This new RV should make everything so much easier.”
O’Donnell describes herself as a lifelong camper. She camped in a tent and then a small cabin as a child with her parents, before graduating to the popup camper.
“I think my first KOA was around the Thousand Islands area in Ontario,” she remembered. “Now, I get to share camping again with my kids and my grandson. This is going to be so great.”
