Fri Sep 23, 2016

Brevard, North Carolina - With the leaves turning and the air cooling, outdoor lovers everywhere are gearing up for autumn adventures. SylvanSport is expanding its dealer network in Norcross, Georgia, helping Atlanta area residents become happy campers, just in time for fall.

Many campers already have enjoyed taking their GO – Mobile Adventure Gear camping trailers out on adventures, sharing their experiences with other outdoor lovers.

“We took our GO camping a few weeks ago and drew huge crowds," GO Owner Vicki of Grand Rapids, Michigan says. "Friends told friends, and pretty soon there was a steady stream filing past our campsite. When it came time to pack up and leave, my husband had a crowd of spectators numbering around 40. The universal consensus was that the GO was one of the coolest things people had ever seen.”

The SylvanSport GO can now be purchased at this Georgia retailer:

•Southland RV- 1794 Bolton Circle, Norcross, Georgia 30071
