Thornhill Family Wins Big at the Toronto Spring Camping & RV Show and Sale

In February 2016, the Blaney family of Thornhill, Ontario, attended the Toronto Spring Camping & RV Show to shop for their first RV. Michael was one of more than 3,000 people who filled out a ballot for the show’s grand prize camping package which included a new Forest River Folding Camper and other camping accessories.

Michael has recently retired from Toronto Hydro, and he and the family have been looking for an RV… they have been attending the Toronto RV Show for the past few years to shop for the RV of their dreams – this lucky win came at the perfect time for them as they begin their RV adventure!

The trailer will see quite a bit of use this summer, as Colm and his friends will be using it to attend baseball tournaments, and Michael and Anne are planning a trip to Eastern Canada.

The Grand Prize package was presented at McKenzie RV Trailers in Gormley, Ontario.

The prize package included the following items (approximate value $15,000):

  • Forest River Rockwood Trailer
  • Coleman RV Mat 9×12
  • Weber BBQ complete with stand
  • Dometic 35L Avalanche Cooler
  • Dometic Ice Maker
  • 3 Berkley Fishing kits
  • 2 Muskoka chairs from mycustomsportschair.com
  • Bottleworx Growler 64oz
  • Kayak from Cottage Toys

Mr. Blaney had the following comments on his good luck…  

“I am very pleased to accept this wonderful camping package from the Toronto Spring Camping & RV Show. My family and I are so excited to take our new RV and go camping – a new experience for us. I would like to thank McKenzie RV Trailers and their staff for helping me over the past several weeks and for getting the trailer ready for the road. I’m so happy that I took the time to complete a ballot at the show! Thanks to everyone.” 

Shannon O’Callaghan, Show Director, made the official presentation – “Many thanks to our sponsors who made this special prize package possible. Congratulations to all of our lucky winners, and good luck to the Blaney family with their first RV! Stay tuned for details on next year’s giveaways!”
