PETERBOROUGH (July 11, 2019) - Great Canadian RV Ltd. is thrilled to announce that in
partnership with the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada, Coachmen Catalina, Global
Warranty, Camco, Wayfarer Insurance, and an anonymous supplier we are making a wish
come true for a six-year-old child with the presentation of a travel trailer for her and her family
at our open house on July 27, 2019.

Harper is a bright, personality-filled child diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome, a rare
neurogenetic disorder that typically presents with developmental delay, difficult-to-treat
epilepsy, sensory, movement and sleep disorders, and complex communication needs (non-
verbal). She loves to explore outside and in water with friends and family but can be quickly
affected by heat, adverse weather, bugs and medical challenges, and so her wish through the
Children's Wish Foundation of Canada is for a travel trailer so she and her family can relax in
comfort together.

Al and Stacey Robinson at Great Canadian RV were asked to help find a travel trailer that
would be suitable for Harper's specific needs, but fulfilling the wish requested quickly
surpassed the original ask, with suppliers and partners stepping up to very generously donate
everything the family will need to camp in comfort, and then some. To date, the wish includes:
a brand new 2019 Coachmen Catalina Summit 172 BH travel trailer, hitch, break control,
bedding, towing mirrors, dishes, camping chairs for four, awning mat, Global extended
warranty for six years, one year paid insurance and explorer RV club membership, cleaning
product and RV starter kit.

The fifth Annual Great Canadian RV Ltd. Open House takes place on July 27, and this year
will include taste samplings from Moosehead Breweries, performances by Jordy Jackson and
Kansas Stone and a meet-and-greet with James Barker of the James Barker Band, a live on
location visit from Country 105 and a barbecue hosted by Personal Touch Catering with
donations benefiting the Children's Wish Foundation. In true RV style, James Barker,
Canada's biggest country star with multiple gold records, will be on hand to move his tour bus
to unveil the New Catalina Summit and all the RV lifestyle necessities to see Harper and her
family begin their adventures in comfort and style.

"We are gratified to have had such a tremendous outpouring of support from our
industry partners and staff. Camping and RVing represents the fondest of memories
for many, it is truly a pleasure to be involved in giving Harper and her family the
opportunity to make memories of their own." Al and Stacey Robinson, Great Canadian RV
"We are in, without a question we are in." Harry Kirkwood, Global Warranty
"Thank you for this opportunity we are delighted to be a part of such a special
request." Josh Mason, Camco Manufactering
"You can count on Coachmen Catalina to partner with you on such an amazing
opportunity." Troy Maples, Coachmen Catalina

"We are completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and generosity, and the
coming together of community to make this wish happen in such a tremendous way for
Harper and our family. Al and Stacey at Great Canadian RV, in part through the
wonderful relationships they've established with their partners, have gone above and
beyond to help our family get out there together, to enjoy and explore life away from
hospitals and appointments. We are all so very touched and so very grateful.” Justin
and Sue, parents
