Gear Up for Spring in a New RV!

Buying an RV is a purchase you’ll never regret. Owning an RV means more time spent out exploring, more time with the ones you love and more time to relax. When you commit to the RV lifestyle, whether you travel full or part-time, your life becomes less stressful and more fulfilling.

RVing is Affordable

One of the greatest benefits of RV ownership is that traveling in an RV is more affordable than traveling other ways. Travelers who use their RVs for vacations save big money by not purchasing flights, costly hotel rooms or expensive meals at restaurants. Those who travel full-time have the opportunity to live in a compact space that is far more affordable than the average home. Even utility costs are drastically reduced when you’re living life on the road.

Keeping It Simple

Life at home is stressful, but life on the road is relaxing. The RV lifestyle forces you to live in a compact space with the ones you love. Inside an RV, belongings are limited and time spent together is maximized. Stepping away from your busy daily lives helps everyone relax and make memories together.

The New Opportunities of the Open Road

Every time you hit the road in your RV, you encounter new people, places and adventures. The RV lifestyle keeps life interesting by presenting kids and adults with new experiences on a daily basis. You may think traveling in an RV will broaden your kids horizons, but there’s no doubt it will broaden yours too.

Stay More Active

Traveling in your RV means you’re cruising to scenic places, campgrounds and other recreational spaces. When you’re not cruising down the road, you’re outside exploring your natural surroundings, playing games with fellow campers and embracing the great outdoors. Additionally, the compact space inside your RV practically forces your family to get out and explore together.

Plan Your Vacation as Your Please

Flight plans, dinner reservations, hotel stays and planned tours tend to make vacations more stressful than they are fun. Forget about annoying airport security and making it to dinner on time, because you can set your own schedule in your RV. Even better, you can pull over your home on wheels and check out sights you never would have seen if you’d reached your destination by plane.

The Amenities of Home

An RV becomes your home away from home. This means you can pack all of the beach supplies, toys, cooking utensils, clothes, movies and other accessories you couldn’t pack if you were going to fly or drive. Whether it means you enjoy a more comfortable sleeping area, the kids have more fun with their favorite outdoor games or you’re able to bring your family pet along for the ride, an RV allows you to enjoy the comforts of home, so you can focus on having fun.

Recipe

Holiday Ham

  • Ham – preferably not spiral cut
  • 1 can of Coca Cola
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 can of pineapple rings
  • 15 to 20 whole cloves
  • Toothpicks

Rinse the ham. Line the roasting pan with heavy-duty foil to make it easier to clean when you’re done cooking. Set the ham in the roasting pan. Pour the Coke in the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the ham with brown sugar. Arrange the pineapple rings on the ham, covering the top and sides. Hold them in place with the toothpicks. Poke the cloves into the ham, spacing them evenly over the top and sides of the ham. Cover the ham with foil, but vent it slightly at the top.

Bake on 285 for about 20 to30 minutes per pound. Check for doneness with a meat thermometer about two hours before you expect it to be done. If you over cook the ham, it will be dry. When the thermometer reads165 degrees Fahrenheit, remove the ham from the oven and let it set (covered) for 20 to 30 minutes.

If you are using a grill, light one burner on a three-burner grill or two burners on a four-burner grill. Adjust the flame so that the temperature stays at 285 degrees. Place the ham on the unlit side of the grill. If you place it on the lit side, it will burn.

Upgrade Your Holiday Road Trip in an RV!

Many travelers are convinced that flying is the best way to get from one destination to another. However, RV enthusiasts know that isn’t the truth. These three reasons why RV travel is better than flying will make you want to buy or rent a comfortable and convenient RV for your next travel adventure.

There Are No Deadlines

Can you imagine a vacation without flight schedules, hotel check-in times and dinner reservations? That’s what vacation is like when you travel in an RV. You no longer have to leave home at a specific time, arrive at your destination on a certain day or wait outside of busy restaurants to eat. RV vacations have no set deadlines or plans, so you can stop and go as you please, and you always have a cozy place to relax and sleep at the end of the day.

Enjoy the Journey

When you arrive at your destination in an airplane, you don’t see any of the scenery or attractions along the way. Traveling in an RV lets you make the most of your vacation, because you get to take in all of the sights on the route to your destination. Many times, the stops you make at new and interesting places become the best parts of vacation.

You’ll Save Money

RV travel is far more affordable than air travel. When you travel in an RV, you avoid costly hotel rooms, expensive restaurant meals (unless you want them) and outrageous plane ticket prices for every member of your group. Renting an RV means you pay one low price plus the cost of gas along your journey. The opportunity to cook meals in your RV kitchen and park at inexpensive campgrounds means you save big bucks when traveling as a family or group.
