RV Family Staying Fit

We all probably need to get more exercise. Ok, I really need to get more exercise. At home, we can have a fitness routine and even head to the local gym for a workout. When you go camping in the RV, however, staying fit gets a little harder. Or does it? Read Full Story →

When it comes to finding the best RV for the money, it takes some work on your part. Fortunately, we’ve got some ideas to help you on your way.

For many of us, the economy has come around now to the point that we can afford to buy a few toys again. This means that RV sales have improved and the industry has stabilized some. Let’s face it; there was a time not too long ago when things were getting a little sketchy. Now we can relax and take a breath and think about getting into a new RV. Read Full Story →

RV Roof: Leaky RV Roof

A leaky RV roof can not only ruin your camping trip, but it can cause major damage to your RV if left unchecked for long. Fortunately, we are here to help with some roof repair options.

It stinks when you find them. Of course, I am talking about leaky RV roof. And now is not the time of year you want to be dealing with them, either. It’s cold and conditions for exacting a repair are not great. It happens, though, and it can be enough to make you want to cry, or drink, or both. Such was the case recently when we were tarping our camper for the winter. I noticed that there was a seam by the vent that looked suspect. Sure enough a branch had broken off a tree in high wind and had thumped the roof just enough to loosen a seam. Rather than hope that the tarp would be enough to keep water from getting in and laying waste to my RV over the winter, I decided to opt for a fix now in hopes of saving later headaches.

RV Snow: Shrink Wrap vs. Tarp

Depending where you live, it might be time to store your RV for the winter. Will you use shrink wrap or a tarp to protect your RV?

The camping season is now over for some of us, and the time to put away the toys before Old Man Winter starts piling up the white fluffy stuff is upon us. If you haven’t already done so, and I haven’t because I procrastinate, it is time to cover up the RV for the winter. For those fortunate enough to have the room inside, it’s probably already in the garage or barn. If you’re going to leave it outside, you should probably consider covering it up to protect it from the harsh winter weather. So, the big question now is – shrink wrap vs. tarp? Read Full Story →

Toy Haulers For Snowmobiles

While toy haulers are a great option for taking your motorcycles and ATVs with you when the weather is warm, don’t overlook toy haulers for snowmobiles in the winter.

The leaves are all off my trees and I’ve been scraping frost off the windshield every morning lately. Then today, the rain turned into this white, fluffy-looking stuff that seemed to collect in places. Winter is just around the corner and coming on fast. That means, at least for me, that the ATVs get less time and the snowmobile gets pressed into service on a near daily basis. That also means it’s time to do some traveling with the sleds. During the summer months, the toy hauler carried the ATVs, and now, just because it is winter, that doesn’t mean the toy hauler gets put away. Let’s talk about using a toy hauler to haul your snowmobiles. Read Full Story →

Fall RV Camping Trip

Before you put away your RV for the winter, make it a point to go on one last RV camping trip. You’ll be glad you did.

If you’re at all like me, it seems like just the other day we were getting the RV out of winter storage and getting it ready for spring and summer fun. Now here it is late in the autumn season and I don’t know about you, but I realized that my family and I have taken the RV out camping an embarrassingly low amount this year. Now the leaves are falling, along with the temperature and days are growing shorter. Soon it will be time to put the RV away again for the last time this season. But you know what; there is still time to get in one last RV camping trip. You should go too. Read Full Story →

Truck Camper Feature

If you own pickup truck and want to explore the great unknown, a truck camper is a great option. But how to pick the right truck camper? That’s where we come in.

It all started with my in-laws. They recently bought a new Chevy Silverado pickup and after the “oohs” and “aahs” of looking over their fancy new truck, they casually mentioned that they decided to get a bigger truck because they have plans to buy a truck camper so they can do some specialized camping trips next spring and summer. I asked them what type of camper they were going to get, and the response was, “I don’t know yet. What should we get?” Read Full Story →
