Lance Camper Manufacturing has announced that Dan Burbott of Upland, California has won the new 2017 Lance 1475 Ultra-Light Travel Trailer in the California RV Show sweepstakes.
As it turns out, Burbott is a newcomer to RVing and is indeed looking forward to sharing his new Lance trailer with his fiance and family with plans to start “driveway camping” right away to get used to the rig, according to a press release. He also has trips to local destinations planned for the near future.
“I am blown away with the amount of features Lance has been able to pack into this model and am discussing getting a new Ford F150 to use as a tow vehicle,” Burbott says.
Lance has partnered with the show and its promotors by providing the grand prize for its annual sweepstakes for the last 13 years.
