Crowd Pleasers: 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

In Trailer Life’s eighth-annual RV poll, readers share the brands and businesses they count on most

Crowdsourcing is a great way to gather opinions from a wide range of people, a strategy long followed here at Trailer Life. After all, readers have been sharing their thoughts and ideas in these pages since 1941. In 2012 we took crowdsourcing to the next level with our first-annual Readers’ Choice Awards.

Thanks to RVers’ growing connectivity, thousands of readers tapped their keyboards and touchscreens in our latest online survey, revealing their favorite products and places in 37 categories, including two new ones, U.S. National Park and Canadian National Park. With the polls now off-line, all that’s left is to recognize the 2019 gold, silver and bronze medalists, recipients of readers’ collective seal of approval. Congratulations to the eighth-
annual Readers’ Choice Awards winners, the cream of the RV crop.
