OUR HISTORY AND VALUES
ROVA is a print and digital magazine about traveling the roads of North America: the insightful stories, the spectacular images, and the best of what this phenomenal continent has to offer.
A brief history
ROVA's team is cobbled together from offices on either side of the world; ROVA's editorial and advertising teams are located at the Executive Media Global office in New York, while our parent company is in Melbourne, Australia.
Our editor-in-chief, Gemma Peckham, is a traveler first and foremost, and has ridden the roads of countries in continents across the globe. She oversaw the development of a caravanning magazine in Australia, and knew that there were countless intrepid explorers over here in the United States. Gemma has built a small team of hyper-enthusiastic, adventurous professionals in New York, as well as a vast collection of contributors from the road and around the country, and is beyond excited to bring you this unique publication. ROVA is published both in print and online, meaning that you can experience it however you choose!
ROVA stands for road vacations and recreational vehicles, and it is about taking all roads—those less-taken or the most well-worn—to your own personal destination.
Every road you take is a trail you blaze. Your wheels may kick up the same dust as another’s, but your story will project new light, new colour—a new world. The roads we take transport us into our own story.
ROVA is about sharing North America as it is seen through the eyes of wanderers, writers, photographers, and amateur adventurers. We’re the ones who stick our hands out the car window to catch the summer breeze; the ones who pull off the road when the landscape commands it; the ones who find new experiences in even the most-visited places; and the ones who forge paths into unknown territories.
In ROVA, we explore how roads connect people, places and experiences. Each new set of wheels to hit the road traces a story on the landscape; let us inspire you to create your own.
