What RV Features Would Dad Love Most?

Today’s luxury RVs come stacked and packed with technology and lots of features.  Whether your Dad is a gear head or a great outdoorsman, here are some of the features found on the types of coaches we sell Dad will truly appreciate.

Patio Awnings with LED Lights

Available at the push of a button on the 2020 Entegra Anthem 42 DEQ we now have in our inventory, this feature lets Dad set up your RV outdoor space at the push of a button.  Not only will it create instant shade, but it provides the perfect place to set up some camping chairs or a dog pen for the furbabies.

Digital Instrument Panel With Two Wireless Charging Pads

Forget fumbling with cables and outlets.  The 2019 Newmar Dutch Star 4369 has a built-in digital instrument panel complete with wireless charging pads.  Just set your phone or tablet on the pad and it charges automatically, no cables or plugs required.

Pure Sine Wave Power Inverter

Pure sine wave power inverters, like the one found on this 2019 Tiffin Allegro Open Road 36UA Bunk House, produce extremely clean, reliable, power like Dad would typically receive from your utility company. Some items must be run off of a pure sine inverter, otherwise it may not run the way the manufacturer intended that device to run. Some examples of applications that should be run off of a pure sine wave inverter are microwaves, key machines, breathing machines, CPAP machines, laser printers, digital clocks, sensitive electronics. PSW power inverters also allow motors to run cooler compared to a non-pure sine (ex. modified sine wave or MSW) and start easier as well.

450 Cummins Diesel

What Dad doesn’t love a machine with a lot of power, like the 2016 American Coach Allegiance 42G Diesel we have in our inventory.  Exceptional fuel economy, low operating costs and legendary reliability make Cummins diesel engines a top choice for RVs. Dads who own Cummins-powered motorhomes enjoy peace of mind, knowing they can confidently tow a vehicle and handle steep hills. Plus, the longevity and performance of Cummins engines routinely translate to much higher resale value than comparable gasoline-powered RVs.

These are just a few of the dozens of special features Dad will love in a “new-to-you” luxury RV.  check out our entire inventory at https://motorhomefinders.com/rvs/

June is National Camping Month!

The sun’s up, the birds are singing, and there’s never been a better time to hit the open road. June is Camping Month, and it’s a great opportunity to get outside with the family and enjoy the great outdoors.

Research shows that people who spend time camping are happier and more relaxed. After all, who doesn’t love sitting under the stars roasting marshmallows and making S’mores, or waking up to the fresh coffee and bacon sizzling away on your RV stove. While camping might evoke thoughts of roughing it in a tent for some, many of us prefer to bring our creature comforts with us in state-of-the-art luxury RVs. That’s truly the best of both worlds.

History of Camping Month

While there was a time when ‘camping’ was just called ‘being alive’, that all changed in the 1800’s when a man named Thomas Hiram Holding began to popularize the idea of recreational camping. Camping was a part of his life introduced to him by the rigors of the Oregon Trail, and once he had settled it turned into a passion he pursued and introduced to others. Once camping in general had become popularized, Thomas went on to introduce the idea of Cycle Camping to the American world.

This is, quite simply, where you load up on a bike and ride until you find a spot to camp, get up the next day, and do it all over again.

What is likely the first commercial campground opened in Douglas, Isle of Man in 1894 and was called Cunningham’s Camp. From this point in history all sorts of new types of camping came into existence, from mere weekend family getaways, to RV camping, and everything in between.

Whether rafting down a river in a Canoe and setting up camp in the evening, pulling into a private space in a five-star RV Park, or hiking into the woods far from civilization with a backpack full of your gear, Camping Month celebrates them all.

How to celebrate Camping Month

Well that’s easy–GO CAMPING! Even if it’s just a pop-up tent and sleeping bag in your backyard under the stars, get out there and reconnect with the great outdoors. There’s a place to find your soul and set your mind to peace out in the great distant woods, and they’re calling all of us to head back out there and find ourselves.

So, this month, pack up the RV and find yourself some secluded spot to set up and celebrating Camping Month by going camping, or should we say “glamping”?

Make a date with this beautiful model.

Motor Home Refresher Course

There is nothing quite like taking to the open road and anticipating all the adventures that await you. Sometimes in our haste to “get out there,” we might forget some of the simplest tasks that make RV’ing easier and more enjoyable. Whether you’re new to RV’ing or a seasoned pro, here are five tips you should always have top of mind when using your vacation home on wheels.

Tip #1: Look before you park.

Whether you were able to choose your campsite or had one assigned to you, it’s important to take a moment BEFORE you pull in to get a lay of the land. Look for uneven areas that could make stabilizing your rig a challenge. Also, consider the size and make sure there’s ample room for your RV and anything you might want to set up on your “patio.” Look for low-handing branches or dead wood that could fall on your RV and damage the roof. Make sure that the site fits your expectations. If you’re looking for peace and quiet and are assigned a slot in the busiest part of the park, you might not enjoy the experience as much as you thought.

Tip #2: Do a “walk-around” before you leave.

Before pulling away, take time to do a thorough check of the area and your RV. Consider creating to-do lists for both settling in and packing up, and follow that list to the letter. Make sure all the slideouts, awnings, and antennas are back to their locked in positions and ready for the motion of the road.

Tip #3: Pack light.

Despite how much room your camper may have, you still won’t be able to pack everything. If you’ve already started packing, you’ve probably realized how quickly your stuff takes up space. You only have so much storage room and trying to fit all the things you might use is probably going to be very difficult. Not to mention, it’ll get very cramped, very fast.

Start by packing only the most essential items without including those “just in case” supplies. You should also try to consolidate in every way you can. For example, instead of packing clothes for every single day you’ll be camping, consider packing fewer clothes and taking advantage of onsite or local laundromats. Only after you’ve packed the essentials should you consider if you have room for luxury items.

Some important issues you’ll want to keep in mind includes weight. There are legal limits to how much your motorhome can weigh overall, including the rig itself, any towed vehicles, passengers, and cargo. Not only can overloading your RV be unsafe, but it can lead to hefty fines, so be careful about how much you pack. Also keep in mind that just because you have extra storage space, doesn’t mean you have to fill every inch of it.

Tip #4: Keep a repair kit on hand.

Keep a toolbox in your RV that contains the basic essentials for a quick fix while on the road. It should include jumper cables, a lug wrench, a tire gauge, spare tire, extra fuses, nuts and bolts, connectors, screwdrivers, hammer, and even spare phone and tablet chargers. It might save you the expense of calling a mobile mechanic or tow truck.

Tip #5: Make reservations.

Campgrounds, especially the most popular ones in desirable locations, can fill up in a hurry. Don’t ever assume that a place will be waiting for you. Instead, plan your journey well in advance and make reservations to ensure a spot will be waiting for you, and that it will be in the part of the park you want to be in.

What is a motor home broker and why should you buy your RV from one?

Now that you know where to go this spring from our last blog post, it’s time to find or upgrade your RV to take full advantage of all these awesome destinations. There are so many choices before you when it’s time to buy an RV. Is it best to buy from a big-lot dealership? Is it better to buy from a private individual? Or, is it best to buy from a motor home broker? The last option has many advantages.

What is a motor home broker?

Essentially, a motor home broker is an advertising and marketing company designed to bring motor home buyers and sellers together. Once connected, they can choose to close the sale independently or use their broker as a facilitator to oversee the process, which is what many buyers prefer. A motor home broker does not control the price of motor homes it advertises, does not handle title or sales tax paperwork, does not take possession of recreational vehicles for sale, does not take title of motor homes for resale. Motor home brokers are paid commissions agreed upon before the deal starts thus ensuring a good price for both buyer and seller. That provides peace of mind at no extra charge!

What benefits are there to working with a motor home broker?

Motor home brokers try to be well informed on current market conditions in order to advise clients of fair market value. According to Cindy Green, president of New Port Richey-Florida based Motor Home Finders, they offer a level of security you can’t find in most other RV buying models.

“We protect to the best of our ability, the public against fraud, misrepresentation and unethical practices,” said Green.

Motor home brokers are well informed and experts in the transaction.

Moreover, motor home brokers like Motor Home Finders strive to learn all pertinent facts concerning all the RVs for which they accept listings, so that they may present a fair description of the RV. For the protection of all parties involved, they see that financial obligations and commitments regarding RV transactions are in writing, expressing the exact agreement of the parties; and, that copies of such agreements, at the time they are executed, are placed in the hands of all parties involved. All without those parties having to lift a finger.

Equally important, motor home brokers can often provide a history of the RV, how it’s been stored and used, whether or not smokers or pets were among its frequent travelers, and provide referrals to lenders and insurers.

If you’re looking to buy your first or upgrade your RV, a motor home broker like Motor Home Finders is the best place to start.

Six Spring Destinations to Take your RV to this Year

By Jamie Cattanach of RVshare

Spring getaways are some of our favorites here at RVshare. It’s such a versatile time to travel. Depending which way you head, you can get all the sunshine and sandy beaches of summer or experience slightly cooler weather further inland — which is absolutely perfect for hiking, biking, and exploring. If you’re into exploring nature and visiting the national parks, spring has an arguable edge over summer; the landscapes will be less crowded and, in many cases, covered over in a stunning wildflower bloom.

But enough about why spring travel is so awesome — let’s get planning some actual trips! Here are our best spring travel ideas and destinations for 2021.

Spring Travel Destinations

Luckily for us RV campers, the USA is home to an abundance of fantastic spring travel destinations. Psst — want to save some cash, no matter where in the world you’re headed? A Passport America membership will get you 50% off your campsite accommodation fees at almost 1900 campgrounds across the country, including locations in Canada and Mexico. At less than $50 per year, it’ll easily pay for itself in just one trip.

  1. Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee/North Carolina

This stunning national park is a great spot to visit any time of the year — which is probably why it’s the most popular one in America.

But come springtime, the Smokies are extra special: all covered over in a flood of newly-bloomed wildflowers, from rhododendrons to black-eyed susans and lots of others in between. In fact, over 1,500 types of flowering plants call the park their home, which naturalists celebrate by hosting the annual Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage at the end of April. Just make sure you reserve your campsite early! As with all national parks, sites tend to fill up fast when the weather’s lovely.

  1. Florida Caverns State Park, Florida

Think beaches are the only landscape Florida has to offer? Or that you have to go all the way to Kentucky or New Mexico to experience a mysterious cave system?

Think again. Situated in the middle of Florida’s panhandle close by to Georgia and Alabama, Florida Caverns State Park shows you a different side of the sunshine state — and has 35 RV-friendly campsites with full hookups.

       3. Cedar Key, Florida

Don’t worry, we promise not every destination on the list will be in Florida — but it’s undeniably one of the best places to travel in spring. March and April bring some of the best weather the state sees all year; the full, stifling tilt of Florida’s summer heat and humidity has not arrived quite yet. Even better, the beaches and springs are just a little less crowded than they will become July and August.

While any spot along Florida’s endless shoreline will be a winner, we love this west-coast island, which is home to miles of hiking trails and unique wildlife. It’s especially popular amongst the bird-watching crowd.

  1. White Sands National Monument, New Mexico

If you ask us, the entire southwest is something of a hidden gem. And if you’re alright with separating the sand from the sea, it’s basically a spring break classic: warm, sunny, and perfect for kicking back.

If you haven’t paid a visit to the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico, this spring is the perfect opportunity. The largest field of gypsum sand dunes in the world, you’ll oscillate between feeling like you’ve stepped onto an alien landscape and wondering where the crashing ocean waves might be — all while enjoying the simple fun of sledding down the steep slopes all around you.

  1. Point Mugu State Park

Want a southern California experience without paying the premium for a southern California hotel room?

Nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains, Point Mugu State Park offers affordable camping accommodations for moderately-sized motorhomes and travel trailers (up to 31 feet). It also boasts five miles of stunning ocean shoreline beaches, bluffs, and sand dunes, not to mention two river canyons. When you’re done with a long day of hiking, go ahead and heed the beckoning water, whether you simply go wading or copy the locals and try out the surf.

    6. Isla Blanca State Park, Texas

Even if you’re far from either coast, a romantic, beachy spring trip is possible — deep in the heart of Texas. Just about as far south as you can get before Mexico, this Gulf coast island offers campsites with both full and partial hook-ups, as well as cabanas and dry camping spots.

Spring Break Travel Deals

These are just a few destination ideas in a country jam-packed with beautiful sites to see this spring. But no matter where your road atlas takes you, you may be wondering: when is the best time to book spring travel?

Although spontaneity is one of the biggest draws of the RVing lifestyle, during popular travel seasons, planning early can help you save money — especially if you’re hoping to use your Passport America membership. You want to ensure there’s a campsite open at a participating campground before you arrive!

Also, keep in mind that campsite fees will vary depending on where you’re traveling and the extent of the campground’s amenities. You can save a ton of dough by opting for less-luxurious sites with only partial hookups, or even by boondocking in a totally undeveloped site. No, you may not have unlimited air conditioning… but the whole point of spring break is to get outside, right? And who needs A/C when you have that beautiful spring breeze blowing back your hair?

Why is there so much to love about a Class A motor home?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you looking to buy an RV for the first time?  It’s important to know what the different classes of RVs mean so you’ll know the right one to choose.  At Motor Home Finders, we specialize in offering Class A motor homes.  Why? Because they are the most fully featured, dependable, and luxurious, and give new meaning to the term “glamping.”  Think of them more like a luxury hotel suite on wheels that you can take with you wherever you go.

What makes Class A so classy? 

Class A motor homes are the most massive coaches on the market and they run the gamut as far as extravagance goes. Ranging in size from 26 to 45 feet, they are built on a single chassis that may have more than two axles — heavier coaches will have three axles in total.

The maximum width of Class A motorhomes is around eight feet, though some states allow widths up to eight and a half feet. They weigh an impressive 13,000 to 30,000 pounds, which gives some indication of the range of possibilities of their interiors.

What makes Class A so luxurious? 

Class A motorhomes offer as many luxuries as the average house — and in many cases they can even surpass them! It is not uncommon for these coaches to sport a king-sized bed, two bathrooms, a washer and dryer, a large living area with sofas and reclining chairs, a dining table, a television, a fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, microwave, oven, stovetop, refrigerator and freezer.

Many also contain slide outs. These devices, invented in 1990 by Mahlon Miller, are more of a space-creator than a space-saver. At the press of a button, a wall and part of the floor of an eight-foot-wide RV slide outward, creating extra square footage in seconds! Some Class A RVs will feature slide outs on opposite walls of the same room, allowing an eight-foot room to expand to nearly 15 feet wide. Speaking of space, Class As are unparalleled in their cargo capacity. Because the floor of the living space is typically several feet above the chassis, much of the space underneath the camper is reserved for storage. That means packing things like lawn chairs, sporting equipment, bicycles and outdoor rugs is no problem!

The engine of a Class A motor home can be either gasoline or diesel.  Diesels typically have a higher resale value, more torque, a higher towing capacity and a longer lifespan. They are also generally quieter, since the engine is located in the rear of the coach, which is also why diesel engines are nicknamed “pushers.” However, gas coaches also generally cost less to maintain and operate, despite requiring more maintenance in general than diesel.

The main advantage of a Class A motorhome, as you may have guessed, is simply the amount of space it offers. Class A owners do not need to leave any of the conveniences of home behind. Many also offer a fairly turnkey operation, as there are high-tech systems in place for leveling your RV, extending and retracting slides and running the appliances and water/sewage systems. Plus, you can tow another vehicle behind your RV for sprinting about town from your campground.

Looking for a Class A motor home?  We have dozens of gently used luxury models in our inventory to choose from that you’re sure to fall in love with.  Take a look around at  http://www.motorhomefinders.com/inventory.

Eight Trending RV Features for 2021

By Jeremy and Sephanie Puglisi of GoRving.com

When it comes to advances in technology, luxury, and off-the-grid capability, the RV industry has been innovating at a blistering pace–and in our humble opinion, there has never been a better time to be an RV owner. If you want an RV that is tricked out with high-tech gadgets and dozens of features that are controllable from an app, then that RV is out there waiting for you. If you want an RV that has all of the comforts of home and the fit and finish of a high-end luxury apartment, then that RV is waiting for you too. Or if you want to get off grid and camp underneath the stars and #roamoutside, then you will also find plenty of suitable RVs that are ready for your next rugged adventure.

Solar Goes Mainstream

Adding a solar system to your RV used to be complex, cumbersome, and expensive for the average RV owner. But that is simply no longer the case. In the last few years solar has gone mainstream. This is because many of the solar companies are now partnering with manufacturers to make the process of adding solar significantly simpler and more affordable, especially for RV owners that may be less handy. Now many rigs come prepped or “pre-wired” for solar and the panels, batteries, and inverters can be easily added by the manufacturer, the dealer, or the consumer. This is such good news for RV owners because having a solar set up is absolutely awesome for dry camping, boondocking, and driveway surfing. Campgrounds are great, but having the power to camp anywhere is practical and on trend for 2021.

Going Big With Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor kitchens have been around for many years now, but they are on trend for 2021 because they are becoming more impressive and “blinged out” for today’s luxury loving campers. Yesterday’s camp kitchens had a fridge and a sink with running water if you were lucky. Today’s camp kitchens have flat screen TV’s, USB chargers and speakers, microwaves, spice racks, built in grills and griddles, and much more. Many of the RV owners that we know use their outdoor kitchens more than they use their indoor kitchens—and that’s a testament to how well-equipped so many of them are these days.

Luxurious Features in Affordable RV’s

Over the past few years a number of features that are typically associated with higher end RV’s have become common in budget priced RV’s. Five years ago, If you wanted heated theater seats in your new RV you would have to buy a luxury fifth wheel or motorhome. Now you can find features like this as options in travel trailers that cost significantly less. Luxurious “grounded” steps with strut assist and handrails also used to largely be available on high end RV’s, now they can be seen on a variety of rigs at affordable price points. We all deserve a little luxury when we Go RV’ing, right?

Lighter Interiors and Stripped-Down Graphics

Many RV consumers have been asking for lighter interior decor options and more stripped- down exterior graphics. Manufacturers have responded to consumer demand in both of these cases. More earthy interiors are still available, and so are elaborate graphics packages, but now consumers have more choice. More choice means that your new RV can be more personalized and more distinct—and what’s not to love about that?

TPMS Systems for Safety

Tire safety can make or break your RV’ing experience. Routine tire maintenance, proper inflation, and correct weight distribution will eliminate most of the emergency tire issues that happen on the road. However, no matter how diligent you are, you can’t control everything, including nails and other random road debris. Investing in a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) can help you avoid getting a blowout to begin with. More and more RV manufacturers are including these types of systems as standard equipment—and we applaud them for doing so. But they are also widely available in the aftermarket and easy to install.

Off-Grid Capabilities

This might be the most exciting RV trend for 2021. As mentioned earlier, more and more manufacturers are offering solar options that can be added at the factory, making off-grid camping more comfortable than ever before. We are also seeing off-road tires, raised axles, and larger holding tank capacity that will make boondocking and dry camping more comfortable for longer periods of time. With these kinds of amenities, you can be ready to roam wherever your sense of adventure leads.

Smart RV Capabilities

RVs have been getting smarter every year, but 2021 RVs have more tech features than ever before. Many models now offer shoppers the ability to control RV systems straight from a smartphone or tablet. Simply download an app and you can dim the lights, extend the slides and awning, and check your tank levels while never leaving the recliner. RVers will appreciate being able to check on the interior temperature of the rig, even when they are away from the campground. Imagine opening your slide outs with an app while standing outside so you can check for obstacles like trees that may get in the way and do damage. Smart, practical, and convenient, right?

Pet-Friendly Features

More than half of all RV’ers travel with their furry family members, and manufacturers are taking note. Many 2021 RVs come with features like leash latches on the exterior, and hidden dog bowl drawers that can be extended during feeding times and tucked away for the rest of the day. Some RV models came with dedicated doggie bed and kennel space. One manufacturer has removed all carpeting from their pet-friendly rigs and also moved heating vents from the floor to the walls. Clearly, today’s RV’s have become more comfortable and convenient for pets and their people.
