  1. Colonial Williamsburg

MHF Colonial Williamsburg

This ever-popular historical site takes visitors back to a time when our country was young. Experience Revolutionary War-era attractions like the blacksmith shop and Yorktown battleground, and investigate the mysterious Jamestown settlement for yourself. There’s plenty of other fun to be had on the 300-acre site, easily accessible from two full-feature campgrounds, the American Heritage RV Park or Williamsburg KOA Campground.

  1. Crater Lake National Park

MHF Crater Lake

For a view that is sure to take your breath away, look no further than this Oregon destination. The nation’s deepest lake is a massive crater, as the name suggests, filled with melted snow and rainwater. Swim and boat on the strikingly blue water, or hike and bike on the forested trails. This park is the perfect place for an outdoors enthusiast to unwind, and is home to a number of RV parks to choose from, including the full-amenities Prospect RV Park and Big Pines RV Park.

  1. Springs at Borrego

MHF Spring at Borrego

If you love the beauty of a clear night sky, this San Diego location is for you. The Springs at Borrego RV resort sits in the 600,000-acre Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and is an official “Dark Sky” community that hosts frequent “star parties.” During the day, you can play golf at the resort’s 9-hole championship course, or relax and enjoy any of the amazing amenities at the fitness center, including mineral baths, saltwater swimming, massages, acupuncture, and more.

The country has plenty more to offer the adventurous RVer, so be sure to visit our Facebook page this month as we detail some more great destinations.

What To Look For When Buying A Used Motor Home

MHF Buying Used Motor HomeYou should look for the same things we focus in on here at Motor Home Finders when stocking our hand-picked inventory.

  1. Was it parked? Look for a newer model with low miles. While a ten-year-old motor home with 20,000 miles or less on the odometer might seem like a real find, but ten years of limited use can lead to all kinds of problems. The worst thing for any mechanical equipment is to leave it unused.
  2. How was it stored? Was it garaged, or parked out back? Parking a motor home on grass, rather than on blacktop, results in moisture being wicked up into the rig, literally rusting it from the bottom up. One parked out in the sun risks a faded, chalky exterior, bleached upholstery and brittle plastic details.
  3. Is the interior clean? The same rules to selling a home apply to selling an RV. If someone hasn’t taken the time to detail the unit before offering it for sale, they probably haven’t maintained it very well while in their care as well.
  4. Did they have pets? This is a tricky one. We all love our pets, but if the owner isn’t extremely diligent about keeping their RV clean and keeping their pets from destroying furniture and flooring, then it can devastate an RV’s value.
  5. Is there rust underneath? If the frame is still black like it was when it rolled out of the factory, then it was stored properly. A thick coating of rust says otherwise.
  6. Check the engine and transmission. If you see any sign of red fluid leakage between the engine and the transmission could mean a leaking seal. If that seal’s not replaced before you head out, you could be looking at a blown transmission and that could cost you a fortune to repair.

Better yet, just give us a call. We’ve already done all the legwork for you!
