Introducing our Best Parks RVer Advisory Board
It’s time to introduce you to the newly created Best Parks in America RVer Advisory Board. They held their first meeting in March 2011.
Four active RVers from diverse backgrounds will be offering:
- Ideas and advice for better serving RVer needs and experiences, and
- Critiques of the parks they visit and the communications from Best Parks to RV consumers.
The Advisory Board members are:
Stan Fleming of Maine. Stan and his wife purchased their first RV / Motorhome (23 foot) in 2006 as they’re nearing retirement. They become true believers in the value and pleasure of traveling in our RV. While not full-timers, they’re close, and the freedom and flexibility the RV has provided has made traveling to visit family and friends a real pleasure. They are now planning extensive travel throughout the US in the comfort of their own “home”.
Pam Wright of Florida. Pamela has been a full-time RVer for the past 8 years. She has been a workamper, a park manager and now has her own company http://www.FocusedWords.com where she puts her marketing experience to work for the park owner.

He and his wife, Christine, have three grown children who are married and live in different midwest cities. They have two dogs with who travel with them between their homes in Rochester Hills, MI and Mesa, AZ. They’ve been RVers for 30 years. Starting with a pick-up camper and now a 40 ft 2009 Itasca Ellipse, they have camped in 38 states over the years and plan to visit Alaska summer of 2012.
Bob Gorden, of everywhere his RV takes him, has been a tent camper and RVer for more than 50 years. He’s owned and driven more than 50 RVs of various types, and he owned and operated an RV rental business for several years. He even constructed his own RVs in the 1970s.
