Good Sam Club National Celebration Weekend

Good Sam Club National Celebration Weekend


The Good Sam Club, world’s largest organization of recreational vehicle (RV) owners, is throwing the biggest RV celebration in its history this week, with a nationwide celebration in appreciation of its US and Canadian members, including a new high-profile celebrity spokesman, a new racing affiliation, new club benefits and the opportunity for great savings on RV accessories at Camping World.


The celebration kicks off with the announcement of country music superstar Tim McGraw as a spokesperson for the Good Sam Club and the club’s support of McGraw’s 2011 “Emotional Traffic Tour.” As part of the new partnership, McGraw will lend his image and voice to Camping World Retail SuperCenters through store signage and messaging. He will also be featured on the cover of the upcoming edition of the Camping World and Good Sam Club magazine, Highways. Camping World and Good Sam will offer their members and customers VIP ticket giveaways to McGraw’s “Emotional Traffic” tour and the chance to enter and win an exclusive meet-and-greet opportunity in an upcoming sweepstakes.


And in another exciting announcement, Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne and his Wood Brothers Race Team will carry the colors of the Good Sam Club in the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday, April 17 and in the NASCAR® Sprint All Star Race on May 21.   For the sport of NASCAR® and for the legions of fans of Bayne and the Wood Brothers, the sponsorship from the Good Sam Club fits right in with the spirit of the camping club, whose members join together for outdoor excursions.


“I’m thrilled to have Tim McGraw, Trevor Bayne and the Wood Brothers on board for the national celebration weekend,” said Marcus Lemonis, CEO of the Good Sam Club and its sister company, Camping World.


Founded in 1966, the Good Sam Club is based loosely on the biblical Good Samaritan who offered to help a traveler in need. Good Sam’s now-iconic halo and wide grin still signify camaraderie among members and their willingness to offer aid to fellow RVers. Today, the Good Sam Club offers benefits including a 10% discount at thousands of Good Sam Parks nationwide.  The Good Sam Parks are inspected and rated annually according to an exclusive Triple Rating System to ensure each park is clean, safe and comfortable plus meeting quality standards.    Good Sam Club is currently working to offer additional savings at Good Sam Parks as well as increase the number of quality parks in the network.  The Good Sam Club is adding some great new benefits in the coming months in addition to members’ exclusive savings on RV insurance, road service, accessories, repairs, RV publications and more.  Visit for details.


“These additional benefits are designed to give our members even more ways to enjoy their travels and RV living,” said Sue Bray, Good Sam Club Member Benefits Director. “We looked at ways the RV lifestyle has changed in the last few years, at how RVers are finding new ways to use and enjoy their motorhome or travel trailer. We wanted to find new ways that the Good Sam Club could help our members enjoy their RVs even more by making RVing more affordable, as well as to help new RV owners get into the lifestyle.”


Good Sam Club members will also enjoy special savings from Thursday, April 14 through Sunday, April 17 during National Good Sam Club Days at Camping World, America’s largest retailer of RV and outdoor accessories and services plus new and used RVs. This year, the annual Good Sam Club Days has been extended for an extra day so RV, camping and outdoor enthusiasts have more time to take advantage of all the great savings!


National Good Sam Club Days will be celebrated at all Camping World locations nationwide and will include 4-Day-Only Coupon Specials, FREE daily seminars, FREE snacks and FREE lunch on Saturday, April 16 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Good Sam Club members can also take advantage of additional money-saving offers on the purchase of a new or used motorhome, Emergency Road Service, installation fees and more.  Plus, attendees can register to win a free year of Camping at the 1,700 Good Sam Club RV Parks nationwide.

“This week is a chance for Good Sam Club members to celebrate their lifestyle, for us to show our appreciation and for America to learn about how RVing with the Good Sam Club is second to none,” said Lemonis.
