1. Introduction

RV Troop was founded to bring together a community of outdoor and camping enthusiasts, offering valuable insights, trustworthy recommendations, and the latest news on RVs and camping. Recognizing the challenges faced by many in finding accurate information on products and campgrounds, we aim to help our fellow travelers make informed decisions. To sustain our efforts, we sometimes include affiliate links in our content. We believe in being transparent and ensuring our community is well-supported in their adventures.

2. What Are Affiliate Links

Affiliate links are special URLs used to track the traffic sent from our website to the advertiser’s website. Think of it as a digital handshake between us and the companies whose products we endorse. When you use these links for your purchases, it signals the company that we referred you to. In return, we may earn a small commission from the sale, but rest assured, this is at no additional cost to you. These small earnings help keep RV Troop operational and allow us to continuously provide you with quality content.

3. Affiliate Programs and Their Relevance

In terms of partnerships, we at RV Troop are highly discerning. Our guiding principle? We only recommend RV and outdoor products, campgrounds, and services that we have confidence in and would choose for our own adventures. Given the dynamic nature of RVing and camping, we ensure that our affiliate partners align with our commitment to providing reliable and practical solutions, enhancing your overall travel experience.

4. Transparent Earnings Disclaimer

RV Troop has established affiliate relationships with entities such as Amazon and Mediavine. We contextually place affiliate links within content and host display advertisements.

RV Troop participates in the Amazon Associates Program, which allows it to earn from qualifying purchases at no extra cost to you.

Trust and transparency are the pillars of RV Troop. While we earn a commission for any sales generated through our affiliate links, this does not influence the price you pay for the product.

We explicitly state that any income derived from these affiliations does not in any way skew the integrity, authenticity, or impartiality of its content.

5. Commitment to Honest Reviews

Your trust is sacred to us. Even if two products offer varying commissions, our reviews remain unbiased. Why? Because our compensation structure is nearly identical across products, this ensures our objectivity. Add to that our strict policy against biased sponsorships, and you have a team dedicated to serving you the truth and nothing but the truth.

6. Privacy Considerations

In the digital age, data privacy is paramount. While our affiliate links track sales, they do not collect your personal information. Your safety and confidence in our platform are vital. You can visit our privacy policy for a deeper dive into how we prioritize your privacy.

7. Invitation to Contact

At RV Troop, we cherish the sense of community and fellowship among RV and camping enthusiasts. Whether you have a question, need advice on travel destinations, or wish to discuss your latest camping experiences, our virtual doors are always open. Feel free to reach out to us anytime through our contact page.

8. Clear Disclosure Location

Transparency is more than just a buzzword for us. To ensure you’re always aware of our affiliations, we’ve strategically placed this affiliate disclosure in the footer of each page – making it easily accessible regardless of where you are on our website.

9. Consistent Tone and Language

We’ve always prided ourselves on communicating in a clear and friendly manner. As you navigate this disclosure and our website, expect the same familiar voice – free of jargon and as trustworthy as a friend’s advice.

10. Adherence to Program and FTC Requirements

Upholding the law and ethical standards is non-negotiable for us. We adhere to the guidelines of individual affiliate programs and the broader standards set by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). We’re in this for the long haul, and our commitment to legal and ethical integrity is unwavering.
