Nappanee, Indiana-based Newmar Corporation announced a new partnership that will allow them to show their appreciation for the brave men and women enlisted in the nation’s armed forces, a press release from the organization stated.
For every coach retailed in 2015, Newmar will make a contribution to Tents for Troops (T4T), an organization that works with campgrounds and RV parks throughout the United States and Canada to provide free accommodations to active military members.
Tents for Troops was founded about five years ago. They are a network of RV parks located across 47 states, each committed to providing free RV and tent camping sites for active military members and their families.
Although they go by the name Tents for Troops, the majority of those who use the program are young military families traveling by RV. In fact, around 80 percent of these families have one or two children, according to a news release.
At this time T4T has just under 300 Parks in their network, and will soon be adding 14 parks in Canada.
“Tents for Troops invites RV Manufactures, RV Dealers and Industry Suppliers of all sizes to join the program, any contribution large or small will truly make a difference,” said Charlie Curry, founder of Tents for Troops.
“RV dealers can donate for new units sold or both new and used and would have the opportunity to ask retail customers if they wanted to donate $1 when they purchase an RV as well. Both OEM’s and RV dealers can encourage each other to participate, and OEM’s and dealers can encourage suppliers to do the same.”
Troops never pay to stay at parks, and the designated parks never pay any fees or dues to be involved with Tents for Troops. It is a feel- good, pay-it-forward type of program, the release stated. T4T asks parks to offer two free tent or RV sites for a two-night stay.
“We’re honored to partner with Tents for Troops in their effort to help our military personnel enjoy the RV lifestyle,” said Matt Miller, President of Newmar.
“We appreciate all that the Armed Forces do for this country, without them we would not enjoy the freedom that we all take for granted. Many thanks to Charlie Curry for his efforts, so that the military personnel can enjoy the same lifestyle that we all enjoy.”

As a very small way of saying “Thank You” for all of the hard work and sacrifices men and women in the military make, campgrounds and RV parks around the nation offer free camping for active military.
