The Second Annual Girl Camper Charity Raffle is off to a great start! Last year we sold more than $61,000 in raffle tickets benefiting HoldYou Foundation, our official charity. The Grand Prize was the 2019 Off Road Mini Max that I took on my travels last year.
This year Forest River has generously donated a 2020 r-pod 196 to Girl Camper. The r-pod had its first substantial reworking since it came out over ten years ago. The r-pod is the largest selling light weight towable in the industry and we know why!! It has everything the big guys give you but weighs in at under 3,500 pounds and has a price point that makes it very consumer friendly. The new r-pod has beautiful cabinetry, convection microwave, walk around Queen sized bed, residential quality jackknife sofa bed, large pantry cabinet and it even has a central vacuum system!! When I first walked through it I was thrilled with its “good bones.” The designers kept the interior neutral using finishes that could be used as a jumping off point for any design.
We partnered with Spoonflower to take it from “Factory to Fabulous.” Spoonflower is a fantastic company that creates custom fabrics, wallpapers and linens from your own designs. You can upload your own artwork or use any of the art other designers have already created. I chose three different designs from three different artists and installed them in our r pod 196 to give it a home feel. What is great about the Spoonflower paper is that it is very easy to install and it is also removable if you decide to go with a different aesthetic,
The r-pod 196 went from Factory to Fabulous with the help of our partners at Spoonflower, Camco, FLI Products and of course Forest River. The Raffle officially begins today and is run through The Raffle Network, an organization that makes fundraising simpler by handling all of the legal stuff, money collection and choosing the winners. The tickets are $10 and the winner will be chosen on Valentine’s Day, 2020. This year we will have some great secondary prizes as well so be sure to subscribe to the Girl Camper Newsletter and keep up to date. If you should be the lucky winner you will have to pick up the trailer in Indiana and get it back home! What a great excuse to visit Amish Country!!
We know everyone wants to win and the temptation is to not tell anyone about this beautiful trailer but we would really appreciate it if you told everybody and shared it wherever you can. The buttons on the page help you to do that. When you see the good work that HoldYou does and the families so in need of it, you’ll understand why we can’t help but help them!! Keep checking back to see what our other prizes will be and thanks for helping us!!
