We can't think of a better way to celebrate and explore our nation than taking a road trip in an RV. And more than 400 motor home owners and suppliers did just that by spending a good part of our Independence holiday at the "Circle Your Wagons in Shawnee" event held at the Heart of Oklahoma Expo Center in Shawnee, Oklahoma.

The event was hosted by Fleetwood RV Inc., a leading maker of recreational vehicles. It was the third time the company hosted the event, which gives owners a chance to show off their RVs and check out new products from various vendors. Last week's event also included a patriotic day parade, live music, and Fleetwood RV rally service support.

"Overall, the event was a huge success," said John Draheim, president and CEO of Fleetwood RV, Inc. "We always enjoy the opportunity to spend time with our owners; getting to know them better and thanking them for their loyalty and support. I know that I can speak on behalf of everyone from Fleetwood that was in attendance when I say that this year's event was hard to leave because of how much fun we had with our owners. They really are the best owners in the industry."

Fleetwood has already scheduled the fourth rally, which will be held in Goshen, Indiana on June 27 to July 1, 2012. Registration, pricing and other info can be found at www.fleetwoodrv.com/mhevent.
