3 RV Trends Worth Watching

Friday, August 30, 2019

Our Grand Design Imagine XLS 19BWE follows both the trend of a smaller RV and a Murphy bed.  We love both!

The words RV and trendy don't seem to go together for me.  Classic or travel are words that come to mind when I think about RV's. But there are trends in every industry, and the RV industry is no different.  Sales were on the rise in previous years.  Even with the current decline in sales, manufacturers do have a pulse on what the buyer wants.  When we were shopping for our new RV, we noticed several trends over and over.

Renting Your RV Through Air BnB

Monday, August 19, 2019

Welcome to our Air BnB!

I've had more than one person tell me that I'm crazy to rent out our new RV.  It certainly is a risk.  No one is going to take care of your personal property as you would.  Some renters may do a better job, and others may disappoint you.  If you are nervous about letting someone pull out of your drive with your RV, Air BnB could be a way to rent your rig at home!

Friday, August 16, 2019

Hose bins make it easy to separate sewer hoses from freshwater hoses.
All of those hoses and cords in an RV can become a tangled mess!  You know the scene, all of your hoses for connecting your RV somehow ending up tossed into a bin or a box.  They can become unsanitary and difficult to find.  How do you tame the tangle of cords and hoses in your RV?

Our finished farmhouse wallpaper lightens up walls behind the bed and sofa.
 Adding decorative touches to a space is something that I have loved as long as I can remember.  As a child, I spent hours making paper snowflakes to hang from the ceiling of my room to create a "winter wonderland" theme.  I am no longer in the business of making snowflake scenes, but I love decorating all the same.  How can you make customize your RV with little time, effort and money?  I'm going to show you how to add a little farmhouse flair to your RV that anyone can do!

Safety at the Campground - 4 Tips for Your Children

Monday, August 5, 2019


Safety at the campground is more than just having a first aid kit.  However, this Surviveware First Aid Kit is handy, and I recommend it!

Camping can feel like this bubble of good times and fun.  Children latch onto this feeling of freedom as they race through the campground on bikes, scooters, and foot.  They can play outdoors after dark and enjoy running free for hours.  But, you also have to encourage some good habits and solid rules so that everyone is safe.
