Airstream Flying Cloud

The 2019 Airstream Flying Cloud 23FB retains the classic look of Airstreams of old, but is full of modern amenities and boasts a smart floorplan.

Growing up, there was this weird camper trailer that my mom owned, but she kept it over at my grandparents’ farm. It was long, silver and kind of weird looking. I wasn’t allowed to play in it and we didn’t have it for long before my mom sold it off in favor of a motorhome. She regretted doing that because the motorhome was nothing but headaches, but she said several times that we just didn’t have a way to tow the trailer anymore, so it made sense. Now that I’m older, I really regret her doing that. I would have loved to still have that vintage Airstream Travel Trailer.

Rockwood Geo Pro Feature

The Rockwood Geo Pro is a compact and lightweight travel trailer that also acts as a toy hauler. This trailer looks ready for your next off-road adventure.

I’m not going to lie. When I think about RVs, I tend to focus on the ones that fit a more adventurous lifestyle. I can’t help it. My favorite camp sites tend to the ones most would call “inaccessible.” It’s not just camping, either. I tend to enjoy going places that are hard to reach. My current truck, while a modest Toyota Tacoma by many standards, was chosen because of its toughness and durability, along with legendary off-road capability. My wife, however, is more pragmatic. She’s drawn to the crossover-type vehicles that are known more for fuel economy and environmental friendliness. There are travel trailers that fit both of our needs. One that truly sticks out, and that may very well end up on our future purchase plan list, is the Rockwood Geo Pro.

RV Winterizing

(By Karel Stipek/Shutterstock.com)

Old Man Winter is fast approaching and for many of us that means camping season is over and it is time to look into RV winterizing.

I hate to admit it, but, at least for me, the camping season has come to an end. We even had our first real snowfall of the year. If you use a winterizing service, or store your RV elsewhere, more power to you. We keep our camper here on our farm and take care of it ourselves. What I mean by that is – I take care of it while my wife is at work. There are two basic premises to keep in mind when RV winterizing. One, you need to get all of the water out of your plumbing so that it doesn’t freeze and ruin things.  And two, you want to cover it up to protect it from the elements. Let’s roll up the sleeves and get started.

Winnebago Revel Side Door

The 2019 Winnebago Revel is a Class B motorhome built around a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, but with the added bonus of four-wheel drive.

It may be the time of year, but I have a bad habit of always wanting to go places I can’t normally go. By this, I mean, while many would think of buying a new RV and exploring the many amazing campgrounds and parks across North America, I have this burning desire to go a little deeper into the wilds and find those places that are harder to access with a standard motorhome. I guess that is one of the many things that draws me to the Winnebago Revel Class B motorhome. This is one of those RVs that lets you really get out and explore, regardless of the driving conditions.

EarthRoamer XV-LTS Feature

If money was no object, my RV of choice would be the rugged EarthRoamer XV-LTS – an RV that can go where no others can follow.

Every week, we talk about amazing destinations, or the best RVs in a given category. We certainly hope you get some useful information from this blog. While talking with my kids recently as we walked the aisles at another local RV show, my son asked me a question that made me pause a little bit. He asked if I could buy any new RV on the market today and price was no object, which one would I want to get. Granted he asked this question right after we had just toured a sweet $300,000+ Class A motorcoach. My wife chimed in before I answered, and said she would be leaning toward the Class A. I thought about it for a minute and said that to be honest, I’d have to get an EarthRoamer XV-LTS.

RV Rental

Renting an RV can open the door to a great adventure for you and your family. There are things you need to know about RV rental that will make the experience easier and more fun.

One of the greatest ways to enjoy the outdoors and explore the country is by an RV. There is a freedom that can’t be compared to anything else, especially where your valuable vacation time is concerned. But like many things in life, RVs are not always the cheapest way to go. Ownership of an RV, even those on the lesser-end of the spectrum, can still count up. An option to save some money and still enjoy a much-needed camping adventure is by RV rental. Let’s take a look at everything you need to know about RV rental.

Let’s get something out of the way right off the bat. You can own an RV and still be interested in renting one. A lot of people, myself included, fly to a location and rent an RV once they get there. It’s better than a hotel any day of the week.

Sick and tired of camping in a tent and feeling the urge to buy an RV? Our beginner’s guide to RVing offers some advice to help you get started.

Thinking about buying an RV can be pretty daunting. I can’t tell you how many times I have been in the same shoes you’re in right now. More than a few times, I have been halfway through the winter and thought I needed a new snowmobile. And every summer, I start thinking I absolutely need a new boat, or an ATV, and yes, a new RV. It was just a couple of years ago that my wife and I were sitting up early in the morning in our tent, trying to keep the down-pouring rain from washing the kids away. My wife and I looked at each other and knew – It was time to get an RV. Our Beginner’s Guide to RVing can help get you started.
