“RVers appreciate useful tools, clever gadgets and new technology that enhances the fun and entertainment of their RV lifestyle,” Lazydays Vice President and General Manager Linda Stephens says. “To that end, our first annual holiday RV gift guide spotlights some of our customer’s favorite accessories across several price points and product categories.”
