Thousands of those attending the Tulsa State Fair stopped by The News On 6 booth for a chance to win a travel trailer. The News On 6’s Rick Wells reports the winner has now picked up the keys and is ready to hit the road in search of some fun.

Carl Eddy and his wife Diana got to say hello to their new Summerland Travel Trailer this week. They picked up their new RV at Dean’s RV Superstore.

Carl Eddy was one of 30,000 at the fair who stopped by the News On 6 booth guess how many footballs were in a clear container. All the guesses were checked. And, it turns out, eight people guessed the right number: 1,278 footballs. Carl’s name was selected after a drawing.

He says he was driving his car when he was first notified, and had to pull over.

“They asked me the same question that you did, ‘How did you pick this?’ And I said I'd like to think I was smart. It turns out, I was just lucky," said RV winner Carl Eddy.

His prize is a 19-foot Summerland Travel Trailer. It has a built in kitchen and bath and it'll sleep up to seven.

"We have a week's vacation next month, and we're thinking of going to Oklahoma City cause it's during the Centennial,” said RV winner Diana Eddy.
