156354760717128.jpgThor Industries is partnering with Robert Field, a social media influencer on outdoor topics whose passion for the great outdoors earns him more than half a million views of his YouTube programs every month, the company says.

Field, who lives full time in a Cougar Travel Trailer by Keystone, will bring his travel experiences through the lens of an RV user to his thousands of social media followers. While on the road, Field will showcase the Cougar while sharing information and guides on fishing trips, sightseeing and travel experiences across the country.

“Field is a true outdoorsman and explorer,” Thor Industries CEO Bob Martin says. “We are confident Field will inspire others to pursue their own outdoor passions through his RV experience.”

Host of the award-winning Field Trips with Robert Field program and producer of new videos on YouTube every Tuesday at 6 p.m. EST, Field recalls how he realized he could more fully experience the outdoors by “just bringing my house along with me to all these incredible places.”
