Thankful for the Small Things That Make RVing Awesome

As we savor the memories from yet another Thanksgiving, let’s all of us RVers be thankful for the small things that make the RV lifestyle so great. While it’s the big moments and flashy memories that motivate us to get out there and explore, it’s the little things along the way that keep us going while we are out there. So, in the spirit of the season, let’s take a moment to be thankful for…

Smoothly paved back roads. Without these lovely boulevards, we’d never get the chance to safely drive through some of our land’s most scenic countrysides. Thank goodness for those wide lanes!

Campgrounds that put some thought into their lots. Is there a better feeling than pulling your rig into a campground spot that is leveled and nicely spaced? These top-notch campgrounds who take care of their guests in this way, making parking a breeze and giving plenty of room for privacy, definitely deserve some thanks!

A motor home that works and works well. No matter how high-end you go, even the top-notch Class A models have small issues here and there. At the end of the day, though, your RV is home, and if it gets you from point A to point B safely and reliably, that’s something to be thankful for.

Campgrounds with indoor showers. Your motor home might have the best RV shower in the world—and some of our Class A, luxury models do—but there is no substitute for a shower drawing hot water from indoor plumbing with room to move. To the parks that offer these facilities, and, more importantly, keep them clean and in good working order, we RVers thank you!

The freedom of the open road. It’s the ability to take home with you and stay comfortable on long excursions that sets RVing apart from other modes of travel and make it our preferred way to see the world. For all the sights we’ve seen and memories we’ve made, for the ability to embrace life and adventure, we are thankful.

New friends along the way. These are folks we wouldn’t have met had we not stepped into an RV and put our foot on the gas pedal that first time. As RVers, we are thankful for the smiling faces and infectious laughter of our fellow adventurers, who our RVs caused to cross our paths.

There are many things that contribute to making the RV lifestyle awesome and a great choice for anyone seeking a life full of adventure and memories. For the ultimate RV experience, look no further than Motor Home Finders. We are certified experts at connecting RV buyers with RV sellers, specializing in top-notch deals on top-notch models.

Tips and Tools for RV Thanksgiving Prep

Thanksgiving is best spent with family, no doubt about it, but celebrating Thanksgiving in a National Park, making yourself at home in your RV might be a close second. (And if your family is with you, it’s easily number one!) The only hitch might be the food prep, especially if you are making a meal for more than two people. Although most of the Class A motor homes have top-notch kitchens that make RV cooking a breeze, Thanksgiving is a holiday that requires a lot of preparation, and the space limitations of even the best RVs can make this a time-consuming, stressful task.

Luckily, there are tips and tools that can make this easier and reduce the stress on you. Here are a few:

Tips for RV Cooking this Thanksgiving

Cook Ahead: Make as much as you can ahead of time and store it in your fridge. This is best done with desserts and other items that aren’t as dependent on freshness for flavor, like the cranberry sauce.

Go outside: Take advantage of your big backyard! Most RV parks have picnic tables that you can use to set your Thanksgiving feast, as well as grills that can be used to cook up some yummy sides without taking up precious stovetop space. Try grilled veggies as a side option! Besides, some turkey prep options like deep frying are best done outside. As an added bonus, you’ll cut down on the heat buildup inside your RV, keeping it a cool place to retreat when the cooking and eating are through.

Buy a bird: Controversial, we know. But if all else fails, a store-bought turkey might just fit the bill. You can provide the home-cooked touch when it comes to sides and desserts, so no need to feel guilty.

Useful Tools for RV Thanksgiving Cooking

The Instant Pot: For those with RV cooking aspirations, regardless of how big your motor home’s kitchen is (and some of the vehicles in our inventory have impressive kitchens), the right countertop tools can be a huge stress reliever. Consider the Instant Pot, a small, easy-to-use countertop cooking contraption that does it all when it comes to pressure cooking: sauteing, slow-cooking, baking, steaming. Thanksgiving prep is a great excuse to add it to your repertoire.

Propane stovetop: Even if your motor home has a high-end induction stovetop like many of our models, Thanksgiving requires so much cooking that another set of burners may be needed. If that’s the case, you can get an awesome little Coleman stovetop for as little as $40. These run on propane—perfect for outdoor RV cooking!

If you’re ready to try a full-on RV Thanksgiving, there’s no need to fear! These tips and tools will help you make it the best Thanksgiving ever! And your Class A luxury motor home from Motor Home Finders is the perfect place to host.

Three RV Features You Should Look For

Modern class A motor homes come loaded with a ton of features, and all of them appeal to someone. Knowing what you are looking for is the name of the game. What features will make your trip easier, more comfortable, more fun? Here are a few suggestions of basic quality of life features to look for when shopping for a luxury RV.

Large Tank Size

Emptying the tanks is a chore every RVer has to do regularly, and it can be an unpleasant reality of the lifestyle. While campsites with full hookups are commonly available, RVers who like to camp at state and national parks may find themselves doing without. In these circumstances, larger tanks can help you cut down on the number of times you have to empty, saving you hassle. When you look for an RV, take the tank size into consideration to save you from having to do this less-than-desirable job too often.

Auto-Leveling System

Much like emptying the tanks, leveling is a task that every RV owner has to do every time they set up camp. Constant vigilance and many minor adjustments are the name of the game. When your RV has auto-leveling, though, all of that goes away. The vehicle gets itself situated on its own, without the hassle to you, making the camping process simpler and quicker. This feature is becoming more common and accessible, so look for it on lists of included features when you go to upgrade.

Bathroom Size

Modern RVs boast all of the comforts of home, but there’s one comfort that is hard to replicate: a spacious bathroom. Since there is so much to fit in an RV, the bathroom often gets the short end of the stick. Bathrooms in motor homes are usually cramped stalls without a lot of room to use the sink, toilet, or shower. But there are exceptions, and many of the high-end RVs in our inventory have these larger bathrooms. It’s an upgrade that is worth taking because it will definitely improve your quality of life on the road.

Whatever you are looking for, there is an RV out there that has it. And Motor Home Finders probably has it in our extensive inventory! Make a list of the features that will sell you on an upgraded motor home, and then search for them in our inventory to find the RV that’s perfect for you.

2014 Entegra Cornerstone 45J – A Giant Loaded with Features

Our theme for this month across our social media has been some of the best RV features to look out for in 2018, so we thought it would be a great time to profile an RV in our inventory that’s simply loaded with features. This 2014 Entegra Cornerstone 45J is a huge, spacious, all-electric motor home with a giant list of included options and features.

When you travel in one of our RVs, you want to have the comforts of home available to you still. This Cornerstone has that in spades. It boasts a well-equipped kitchen with gorgeous cabinetry, a two-burner electric stove, convection microwave, dishwasher, and residential refrigerator. It has tile flooring and power-everything throughout. In the bathroom, a spacious, accented shower. For those cold nights, a fireplace. A central vacuum system keeps things clean. We could go on about the ceiling fan, full surround sound, unique interior design…but the full list of features is just too long to post here.

Outside, it has a full entertainment center, side-swing baggage doors, and automatic sewer connections. For the greenwise, this Cornerstone has dual solar panels to help you harness the power of the sun to save electricity.

This RV has everything you need to live in comfort no matter where your wheels stop turning, and it’s been reduced to just $278,900—an absolute steal at just 22k miles. Check out the listing in our inventory and see what the fuss is about: https://motorhomefinders.com/rvs/2014-entegra-cornerstone-45j/

This Video Will Give You Something to Talk About at the Campground

Who doesn’t love showing off their RV? Whether you’re a Fleetwood fan, a Newmar nut, or an Entegra enthusiast, each Class A motor home we sell has plenty to talk about, with unique features in every corner of the vehicle.

But the models in our inventory look downright tame next to the wacko designs in this video.

This ten minute video from Mind’s Eye Design features the craziest (and, we’ll admit, coolest) RV designs on the planet. From a one-of-a-kind super RV that looks like it could fly to the moon, to an antique piece from the 1950’s that was rediscovered in near-perfect condition decades later, to an RV tricycle (what in the world?), the motor homes in this vehicle will give you plenty to talk about the next time you visit a campground and chat it up with the neighbors.

A Desert Island List of RV Blogs

There are dozens and dozens of great RV blogs on the web that inspire, inform, entertain, and overall prepare RV owners for life on the road in their motor home. There are so many, in fact, that we could write for months just recommending what we think are the best RV blogs. Instead, we decided to narrow it down, and give you our “desert island” list. If you could only read three RV blogs ever again, what should they be?

Love Your RV

This is THE source for ingenious RV tips and tricks. Whatever problem, big or small, that an RV owner is likely to experience while traveling, the authors of this blog have seen it and already come up with a solution so simple that it will leave you smacking your head and saying “duh!” These folks are experts, having traveled over 60,000 miles by RV over the past 7 years. Their whole blog is worth perusing, so make sure you give some of their content a read before your next trip—although, odds are, you’re already a reader! https://www.loveyourrv.com/

Currently Wandering

Currently Wandering is a blog jam-packed full of useful information for RVers, especially those who are inspired to go full-time. This blog offers great tips on road-ready recipes & exercises, gear reviews, and guides to help you get ready to live in your RV full-time. No matter what your level you are at, you can learn something from this wanderin’ family. There’s enough content here to keep you occupied for days, including a superb cost-benefit breakdown for solar power. https://currentlywandering.com/

Ditching Suburbia

This one was chosen based on two key factors: the obvious passion behind it and the sheer amount of content available. Ditching Suburbia is a blog by a family who have been traveling around America in an RV full-time since 2010, “leaving a suburban life in search of simpler living, closer family, richer education, and uncommon adventure.” The blog updates 2-4 times per week, and even features a podcast with 92 episodes, most around five minutes, but several close to an hour in length. All of this works towards one goal: to encourage you to “Own Your Days.” https://ditchingsuburbia.com/

These three RV blogs are the best of the best, and are absolute must-reads for anyone serious about getting into the RV lifestyle. There’s so much out there to learn! Start today and get excited (and prepared) for your next trip.

Featured: Like-New 2018 Thor Aria 34-foot Triple Slide

This is a perfect RV for those looking for a smaller vehicle, without sacrificing the luxury of a Class A motorhome. At 34 feet, this model is easier to store and drive than many of the behemoths we usually feature in our inventory, but the list of included features is nonetheless impressive.

As soon as you park your RV, your first task is to level it. This process can range from “easy-peasy” to “pain in the neck” depending on which system your motorhome has. This Thor Aria has an automatic leveling system with simple, touchscreen controls, ensuring that you won’t even break a sweat getting your RV securely parked, even on uneven ground.

Once you get parked, relax outside under the awning, watching the 39” TV wirth spectacular sound from a Bluetooth soundbar, or play tunes directly from your phone to the soundbar and start dancing. Head inside and stretch out thanks to three slides opening up the space. Dinner will be a breeze with the amazing induction cooktops and dream dinette, and the indoor entertainment system is even more impressive than the outdoor one. The leatherette theater seats are the perfect place to unwind before heading to the king-size, Tilt-a-View inclining mattress for a perfect night’s sleep.

This 2018 model is like new, with only 7,400 miles, and is sure to stay in great shape thanks to front paint protection. A 100W solar charger allows you to save energy and “go green.” The special interior décor is unique and tasteful, sure to stand out. Such a stylish, luxurious model might be $250 thousand, even $350 thousand. But this 2018 Thor Aria is a steal at just $173,500.

This is an absolutely spectacular entry point into the world of Class A motorhomes, well worth a look. Its listing can be found at: https://motorhomefinders.com/rvs/2018-thor-aria-3401/

Looking at Solar Power This Summer

Have you considered solar power in your RV? As our society moves towards alternative energy sources and “going green,” there’s a lot of talk about solar. Many of the Class A motor homes we list in our inventory have solar panels as an included option, and this feature might be one worth buying into.

An RV roof is a prime place to install a solar panel, due to the amount of time spent in the sun, whether driving or camping. However, solar systems shouldn’t be utilized alone. They are a part of a larger system that includes your generator, battery, and campground hookups. A good solar rig, though, can shoulder part of the power burden and save you some money while benefiting the environment.

A solar panel rig can also open up new kinds of RVing adventures to you. While previously you may have been locked down to a campsite, now you can feel free to do some “boondocking,” going off the grid and away from it all to camp. You can feel closer to nature than ever, while still enjoying the utmost comfort of your luxury RV. You might find that having solar panels installed opens up the map to you in ways you never imagined.

If you already own an RV, take a look at the amount of energy you use on your typical trip and see if a solar power system makes sense for you. If you are in the market for a new Class A motor home, take a look at our inventory and you may be surprised how many come with solar already installed. It’s an upgrade that’s great for the environment, and one that can definitely enhance your RVing experience!
