Nationwide RV Survey Launches At Florida RV Supershow

BowStern Representatives Plan to Launch in Tampa

(Tallahassee, Fla)  Representatives from BowStern, a national marketing firm specializing in the RV industry, announced today they will launch the 2013 survey immediately following the Florida RV SuperShow in Tampa, Florida. In preparation for the launch, BowStern is inviting members of the industry to submit questions to include in the annual survey.

“In our on-going efforts to best serve the RV community, we are calling for questions from vendors,” said Tom Derzypolski, President, BowStern. “What information would you find useful? Let us know what you want to know.”

The survey is designed to be short and easy so that RV owners will take the time to respond. Industry leaders have an opportunity over the next week to suggest questions for consideration in this year’s survey. Last year, almost 700 users responded to the survey, providing the industry with a broad view of RV owners’ habits and preferences.

Historically, the survey is limited to 20 questions and takes just under five minutes to complete. It covers a broad range of topics including average distance traveled in a year to how RVers plan trips and various product preferences. The survey is available in both print and online formats. To incentivize RV users to complete the survey, BowStern is giving away numerous free stay certificates, gas cards and other prizes.

Submit your suggested questions to Tom Derzypolski at The survey will begin the week of January 21, and the Survey Report will be published in late February. A copy of last year’s Survey Report can be obtained by visiting
