Both my husband and I are somewhat experienced RVers. He’s owned both trailers and a motorhome in his past life, and I have worked in the RV industry for 35+ years, certainly taking my share of RV trips and stays.

Spend a single day in Arizona in the middle of summer and you’ll know what all the fuss is about. When natives say it gets unreasonably hot in the desert, it’s no joke – it’s a warning. Severe temperatures like the ones you’ll find in Arizona and the rest of the Southwest are capable of

The art of RV cooking has evolved greatly over the last few decades; each passing year brings more ways to customize a motorhome’s kitchen to address the unique preferences of your family. You want granite countertops and dual ovens? Done. How about a full-sized dishwasher? For a certain price, you got it. Whether you’ve stepped
Alaska: the last frontier. Spanning more than half a million square miles dotted with mirage-like towns and framed with vast mountain ranges, seemingly limitless, it bursts at the seams with the unknown. Alaska is one of the few states in the nation where you can come face to face with a grizzly bear and never
The water system in your RV provides your fresh water and removes used water from the inside of your unit. Keeping an eye on every aspect of your water system before, during and after your road trip will reduce the chances of your unit having issues. This includes taking the time to properly winterize your
