SylvanSport, the Brevard, NC-based maker of trailers and camping gear, is honored to add their GO camping trailer to the Go RVing Hall at the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum in Elkhart, Indiana.

The Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) spends millions each year on its Go RVing campaign to highlight the RV lifestyle. Go RVing is so significant that it has its own hall within the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum. The SylvanSport GO, which is made in Brevard, NC, will be featured in this hall as part of a 6-month exhibit.

When the SylvanSport GO was introduced in 2008, it was truly the creator of what has become a new category of adventure vehicles that blend outdoor activity with comfortable camping convenience. The GO can carry all kinds of gear like kayaks, canoes, boards, bikes and much more. When this ultra-lightweight trailer converts to camping mode, it features multiple options for a comfortable night’s sleep, ranging from two individual full-size sleeping areas to a king-size-plus bed, offering welcome recovery from the day’s outdoor pursuits. The GO has garnered a passionate community of adventure campers across the country and has earned multiple recognitions and awards, including an International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) Gold award, and being called the “Coolest. Camper. Ever.” by National Geographic Adventure.

 

SylvanSport Founder & CEO Tom Dempsey personally delivered the GO to the museum, along with VP of Operations Patrick Kennedy and Global Sourcing Manager John Stall.

 

“We are delighted to show off our GO camper in the Go RVing Hall,” says SylvanSport CEO Tom Dempsey. “From design and engineering to sourcing and manufacturing, each GO is the culmination of the hard work and dedication of our team. Over the past 12 years, the GO has proven itself as a comfy, capable, and elegant platform for outdoor adventure and we are thrilled to share its quality and innovation with enthusiastic RVers who visit the museum.”

 

“The purpose of the Go RVing Hall is to showcase what modern RVing and camping has to offer to customers of all types,” says Jose Rodriguez, Administrative Manager for the RV/MH Heritage Foundation. “The SylvanSport GO is a wonderful reflection of the versatile nature of today’s RV world. We fully anticipate excited and inquisitive reactions from our visitors.”
