Minneapolis, Minn, November 26, 2012— The results of MotorHome magazine’s first-ever Readers' Choice Awards are in and this year’s winners include many of North America’s most popular motorhomes, campgrounds and RV products and services.
More than 130,000 readers were invited to choose from 100 brands and cast votes online at www.MotorHomeMagazine.com for their favorites in 24 categories such as Class A Motorhome, RV Cleaner and Satellite Hardware. Among the winners are recognizable names such as Winnebago, Camping World, Blue Ox, ADCO and Cracker Barrel.

"MotorHome readers know what works best, and for the first time — and moving forward on an annual basis — we’ve asked them to rate their favorite RVs, campgrounds, products and ancillary services."
"The winners are the best of the best in the RV industry and we thank our loyal readers for participating in this valuable asset to the pages of MotorHome magazine," MotorHome Publisher Bob Livingston said. "Congratulations to all the winners for being at the top of their game."
