LAKE PARK, GA (WALB) -

A South Georgia couple is now the owner of a travel trailer after winning a national competition. 

Eddie and Margie Richardson of Nashville won the $18,000 prize from Camping World Super Center near Valdosta.

The couple said a small breakdown in their previous RV put them in the store at the right time to get the winning ticket. 

"I'm usually not the lucky guy but, I won a camper. It's amazing," Eddie Richardson said.

The giveaway was used to celebrate Camping World and Good Sam's 50th anniversary.
