Lazydays RV, Florida Gators host annual RV tailgating

TAMPA, Fla. — Lazydays has partnered with the University of Florida (UF) Gators to host its fourth annual pre-game Welcome Event exclusively for Lazydays RV Tailgating Lot pass holders. Guests gathered at the event outside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville before the Florida Gators vs. Missouri Tigers game on Saturday, November 3rd, to browse new RV models and meet Gator Greats Lito Sheppard and Ahmad Black. Lazydays was also the game-day sponsor for the revered Homecoming game.

As the official sponsor of the University of Florida RV tailgating lots surrounding the UF campus, Lazydays treated guests to a BBQ buffet, Lazydays/Gators branded fleece blanket gifts, and photos with Lito Sheppard and Ahmad Black, former defensive backs for the Florida Gators.

“This is the fourth year of the partnership between Lazydays and the Florida Gators, and it continues to build each year,” said Jay Jacobs, executive associate athletics director for external affairs with the Florida Gators. “All 750 University of Florida RV season parking pass holders were invited to this year’s pregame event at FanFest, and we had a tremendous turnout. Lazydays is the perfect sponsor and perfect complement for our RV tailgaters.”

“Our relationship with the University of Florida has enabled us to deliver truly memorable experiences for Gator RVers,” said John Lebbad, chief marketing officer for Lazydays RV. “RV tailgating gives fans a fun and exciting way to celebrate their favorite team before each game and we’re honored to be a part of the Gators game-day festivities.”
