Press Release

PHILADELPHIA – and Winnebago Industries have joined forces to spread the word about the ease and fun of traveling with pets.

On the Go with Winnebago” will be the new slogan for GPF’s future road trips! Amy and Rod Burkert, along with their dogs Ty and Buster, will now be traveling in a brand new 2010 Winnebago View.®, launched in 2009 by the Burkerts, is the only source of up-to-date pet policies for over 4,000 pet-friendly campgrounds and RV parks and more than 20,000 hotels and B&Bs throughout the US and Canada. The Burkerts have become a living example for the website’s users. They’re traveling full-time with their dogs while working and blogging about their adventures.

“We knew the website would not be successful if we sat in our office and told people how to travel with their pets,” said Amy Burkert. “We need to travel, and the new Winnebago View, with its pet-friendly features, will make our trips much more enjoyable.”

Why the View?

When deciding on the View, the Burkerts appreciated the versatility of the coach, which is roomy and offers a lot of storage. But is compact enough to easily maneuver on city streets. “The full-wall slide-out adds valuable floor space for “furry”  travelers that need to keep their paws on the floor. And opting for a bed over the cab means you won’t have fur in your sheets,” said Burkert.

“Pet friendly travel is another great benefit owners of Winnebago Industries motor homes enjoy. further enhances pet traveling experiences by providing ready access to pet travel information. And they share their best practices for traveling with pets,” said Chad Reece Winnebago Industries Director of Marketing.

“Approximately 8.2 million American households have an RV, and the pet travel industry is skyrocketing. Teaming up with Winnebago makes all the sense in the world,” said Burkert. users search for and locate pet friendly beaches, wineries, shopping centers, off-leash dog parks and much more. By linking up with the leading reservation sites, GPF is able to provide the best deals on hotels and with their unique Roadtrip Planner, even planning a road trip is made simple. The website is free to use. And pet-friendly establishments receive free basic listings on the site.
