400 RVers take part in getaway in Pine Mountain

Published 7:00 am Wednesday, October 26, 2022

For over 400 RVers from across the county, the chance to take a vacation in nature came filled with opportunity to boost tourism, build connections with the local community and explore Pine Mountain’s natural beauty.

Starting Tuesday, Lippert Components, a global manufacturer of RVs and accessories, will host their second annual consumer rally, the “Lippert Getaway” in Pine Mountain, Georgia.

For six days, members of Lippert’s consumer-focus group, the “Lippert Scouts” will take part in various activities around the resort, such as technical seminars, lifestyle panels, workshops, shopping, nightly entertainment and an onsite and offsite volunteer event.

Attendees from approximately 28 different states will have the opportunity to celebrate RV life while connecting and networking with one another.

“Last year’s event ended on a sweet high note, and we knew this gathering could not be a one-time celebration,” said Nicole Sult, Vice President of Customer Experience. “To be face-to-face with our Scouts was a transformative experience for many of us because, for most, our relationships only existed virtually.”

Sult said regarding customer experience, Lippert hopes to take a dive deep into the RV lifestyle and understand how the company can be a better manufacturer and leader for those passionate about travel.

Local Pine Mountain vendors have been hired by Lippert to entertain guests or have been invited to set up their merchandise for event attendees to shop.

Some local vendors include: Emberglow, Refuge Mercantile, The Urban Native, Wild Leap Brewery, Southern Local Nuts, Bulldog Supply, Atlanta Tent Company, Magnum AV, Callaway Gardens, Wild Animal Safari, Face Painting by Brittany and Tulla White Catering.

Several of Lippert’s influencers and ambassadors will hold seminars talking about their experiences as RVers. Some special guests include Chasing the Cashes, Enjoy The Journey, Less Junk More Journey, Matt’s RV Reviews, Restless Russells, Simon Crew on Adventure, The Campoholics, The Flipping Nomad and Traveling Stephens.

Entertainment for event attendees will include American country music singer/songwriter John King, singer/songwriter Cody Webb and stand-up comedian and podcaster Brent Terhune.
