WinnebagoIND_red-TM-300x43Winnebago Industries Inc. has partnered with GoPetFriendly.com on the “Ultimate Pet Friendly Road Trip Across the U.S.” According to a release, as a sponsor of the 15,000-mile RV tour, Winnebago will celebrate with GoPetFriendly.com as they spread a message promoting pet travel and safety to pet lovers nationwide.

In addition to visiting the No. 1 pet-friendly attraction in each of the lower 48 states, GoPetFriendly.com will hold 17 free, live, and open-to-the-public events as part of its tour. The first Pet Friendly Road Trip live event will take place on Feb. 11 in Carmel, Calif. Events will continue throughout the tour and will be co-hosted with the Humane Society of the United States, The Shelter Pet Project and local animal shelters and rescues.

“We are proud to help sponsor the Ultimate Pet Friendly Road Trip Across the U.S.,” said Winnebago Director of Marketing Chad Reece. “One of the many benefits of traveling in an RV is how easy it is to travel with pets and many of our owners take advantage of this convenience.”

“From the dog-friendly beach in Carmel, to hiking the rocky shoreline of Maine’s Acadia National Park, there are so many incredible, pet friendly places to explore across the country,” said Amy Burkert, founder of GoPetFriendly.com. “We’ve been traveling full-time in our Winnebago for nearly seven years, and we love it. The coach truly has all the conveniences of a house, and our dogs are able to tour the country, while enjoying the safety and security of relaxing in a familiar environment at the end of each day.”
