RVDA of Canada invites nominations from across the country for the annual honor established in 1989 by Camping Canada Magazine. The award is dedicated to Walt Paseska’s memory in recognition for his many years of commitment and dedication to the RV industry.
The award is presented to a candidate who contributes to the community, demonstrates long-term dedication to the RV industry, participates in the RVDA and is recognized by customers and peers as a credible person with integrity.
Goreski’s RV industry experience began in the 1970s when he started working at his family’s Ontario dealership, Skyview Trailers.
