In time for vacation planning, new series across web and television highlights
the best locations to visit this summer…in your RV

DENVER (May 23, 2016) – Outdoor Sportsman Group (OSG), the world’s largest aggregator and content provider of outdoor lifestyle content, has teamed up with Go RVing to create the Weekends AWAY summer adventure travel series as part of an OSG Integrated Media initiative which began Monday, May 2.

Weekends AWAY details three great summer destinations to visit: Blue Mountain Lake, NY; Copper Harbor, MI and Steamboat Lake, CO — all in your RV.  The Weekends AWAY website provides fun places to visit and photograph en route to an ultimate destination where your RV becomes your basecamp to adventure. Fish, hike, photograph and explore these three top destinations.

“We are excited to partner with Go RVing for an initiative that supports getting people out of their homes and on the roads of America to experience what our vast and magnificent country has to offer,” said Jeff Paro, President and CEO of Outdoor Sportsman Group Integrated Media. “As our brand continues to grow, we remain focused on keeping the promotion of outdoor lifestyle as our core.”


Content was created by outdoor travel experts who know all of the best places to visit with inside tips on great places to eat, what equipment to bring, fun things to do and tasty recipes you can make from fresh ingredients (and fish) gathered while visiting some of America’s most picturesque scenery in an RV.


Since the start date of May 2 and for the following four weeks, viewers have the opportunity to enter the Weekends AWAY Sweepstakes. There is a weekly prize winner of a $225 gift card to Cabela’s and one grand prize winner of a $4,000 shopping spree at Cabela’s. Enter for a chance to win all the gear you need for your weekend away in an RV.

"RVs pair perfectly with an active outdoor lifestyle making this partnership a natural fit for Go RVing,” said Karen Redfern, Senior Director, Marketing Communications at Go RVing. “Compact and lightweight towable and motorized RVs go from the highway to a basecamp with ease. We're excited to partner with Outdoor Sportsman Group to showcase real-life outdoor RV adventures."

Outdoor Channel also will give viewers a sense of what it’s like to “Go RVing” with the presentation of a four-part mini series – AWAY presented by Go RVing – in which several groups of friends and families utilize RV’s to escape the monotony of everyday life by reconnecting with Mother Nature in the great outdoors. Join the RV roadtrip to exciting fishing and hunting adventures, from the beautiful beaches and wild rivers of the Pacific coastline, to the wonders of the Florida backcountry beginning Saturday, June 4 at 12:30 P.M. ET.
