Campground Owners Alerted to Carefully Read All Invoices

After questionable invoices have popped up in states across the country, campground owners should be vigilant in inspecting all invoices before submitting payment.

RV park and campground owners in Maryland, South Dakota and other states have recently alerted the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) of a suspicious invoice being sent from a company, whose name is similar to a well-known national company and could potentially cause confusion, so ARVC is suggesting all campground owners nationwide carefully inspect all invoices before submitting payment.

The afore mentioned invoice is being sent from a company referring to itself as “Go RV Inc”, very similar to the GoRVing brand owned by the RV Industry Association (RVIA). On the invoice, the issuing company claims "Go RV acquired the Maryland Campground and RV Park Directory Inc. and SW Publications Nationwide”. Because many campgrounds employ SE Publications to create and publish their directories, this similarity could also be confusing to campground owners.

Because of this potentially confusing issue ARVC is communicating directly with its members and would appreciate any help communicating this to your readership in the RV park and campground community as well.
