RVC Outdoor Destinations and Pilot Flying J Form Strategic Relationship

RVC Outdoor Destinations has formed a strategic alliance with Pilot Flying J, the largest retail operator of travel centers in North America. Through this relationship, RVC will give guests a complimentary membership to Pilot Flying J’s reward program for RV drivers.

“We wanted to partner with Pilot Flying J not only because they are a top-rated company, but also because we feel the pain of the rising gas prices, especially for RV travelers,” said Yale Spina, RVC Vice President and Director of Operations.

In regards to these high fuel prices, RVC is giving each and every guest an exclusive membership that includes a Pilot Flying J frequent fueler advantage card and RV travel guide in an effort to keep RVers on the open road. 

With the frequent fueler card, RV patrons will receive many benefits, including discounts on gasoline, diesel, propane fuel and dumping fees at any participating Pilot Flying J location. The cards have no expiration date. The travel guide that guests will also receive shows the location of every travel center that accepts the membership discount along with other useful information, such as if the locations have restaurants, RV parking, RV dumping and bulk propane. The locations and contact information are listed for every state.

Each RVC “Outdoor Destination” will give guests this gift upon check-out. These are the RVC properties:

·         Carrabelle Beach, an RVC Outdoor Destination (Carrabelle, Florida)
·         Catherine’s Landing, an RVC Outdoor Destination (Hot Springs, Arkansas)
·         Live Oak Landing, an RVC Outdoor Destination (Freeport, Florida)
·         Pine Mountain, an RVC Outdoor Destination (Pine Mountain, Georgia)

Urgent! Pine Mountain Hosting Disaster Relief Program!!

RVC's Georgia property - Pine Mountain - is assisting the victims of the recent tornado damage in Alabama by asking guests and outsiders to donate. In return, Pine Mountain is giving all donators a 20 percent discount at their property. The program is a joint effort between Pine Mountain and Heaven’s Saints Motorcycle Ministry, a motorcycle club with multiple chapters across the nation.

“We were lucky to not receive harsh damage and our hearts go out to those who did,” said General Manager Jim Anderson. “We want to help the surrounding areas as much as we can,” he added.

Pine Mountain is asking people to donate items or cash/check donations made out to Pine Mountain RVC, which will one hundred percent go to people in need

Items being requested are daily-use items, such as (but not limited to):
  • Toothpaste
  • Shampoo
  • Deodorant
  • Diapers of any size
  • Toilet Paper
  • Paper Towels
  • Brooms
  • Mops
  • Dish detergent
  • Washing detergent
  • Baby food
  • Can food
  • Non perishable food
  • Pots & pans
  • Dishes

    All items and donations must be received no later than May 18, in order for trucks to be organized and loaded. These can be shipped, brought directly to Pine Mountain, or made over the phone. The majority of the donations will go to the city of Eclectic, Alabama, which is two hours away from Pine Mountain. The storm marked the worst tornado outbreak since 1974 and unfortunately Alabama was one of the states to be hit the hardest.

People and current guests donating to victims through Pine Mountain will receive a 20 percent discount on their stay or be mailed a voucher for future use. Please call Pine Mountain at (706) 663-4329 to make donations by phone or request more information.

RVC Outdoor Destinations Officially OnStar and NaviPro Compatible!

RVC Outdoor Destinations has signed up all five of their properties to become searchable with OnStar and NaviPro, two popular GPS/POI mapping systems.

By doing this, guests are not only aided in directions, but potential unexpected customers can now be informed of RVC’s destinations, as a couple of guests to Live Oak Landing in Freeport, FL experienced.

Neil Sorrell, General Manager of Live Oak Landing, tells the story:

“We had a couple from Atlanta visit a few days ago. They had to make a quick trip to Freeport due to an unexpected occurrence. They weren’t sure where to stay, so they typed  “overnight accommodations in Freeport” into OnStar and it gave them turn by turn directions over the radio. I’m especially excited that Live Oak Landing is part of OnStar and Navipro, since it's the only lodging option in this entire city.”

Another added bonus of being listed in these programs is that it does not limit RVC to one type of accommodation category. Since all of RVC’s properties feature both cottages and RV sites (and some have yurts), it is extremely important that the resorts are not misunderstood to be solely RV parks.

With OnStar or NaviPro, searching for area/city specific resorts, accommodations, travel, hotels, and /or lodging will suggest an RVC Outdoor Destination.

Happy travels!
