Did you Know? Motor Home Stats You Won’t Believe

RV ownership looks different than you think. Motor home living and traveling is a trend that’s been on the rise for years and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. People love the feeling of freedom and adventure that owning an RV gives them.

Some of these stats, sourced from The Wandering RV, are sure to blow your mind. Things like…

The Average Age of U.S. RV Owners is Just 48

There is a misconception among some people that RVs are just something for old people, like your great-uncle that parks outside grandma’s house on Christmas. This couldn’t be more untrue! The average age of RV owners gets younger all the time, and currently households in the 35-54 year old demographic are most likely to own an RV.

Over 9 Million Families in the U.S. Own an RV

An RV is the perfect way for families to travel, which is why such a huge number of families in the U.S. own one. If one of your goals for your family is to travel together, you owe it to yourself to consider purchasing an RV or upgrading your current one to a model that better fits your needs.

90% of RV Owners Say It’s the Best Way to Travel with Kids

It can be tough when you have a family to keep everyone safe and comfortable, but a motor home trip lets you take the comforts of home on the road. The consensus among RV owners is that RVing is perfect for families with kids. You can save 60% over a traditional vacation and keep everyone comfortable and happy, no matter how far you travel.

Over 1 Million Americans Live in Their RV Full-Time

If you’ve been considering going full-time but have been too nervous to take the plunge, consider that over 1 million other RVers are currently living in their motor home full-time. It can be done, and it just might be the adventure of a lifetime!

Embrace Independence Through RV Ownership

July is the month when we Americans celebrated our freedom. We embraced change and fought for our right to govern our own lives, rather than acquiesce to the way things had always been. It’s this very sentiment that makes the Fourth of July one of our favorite holidays here at Motor Home Finders. We recognize that owning an RV is a way to overcome this same struggle in our own lives.

Too many people succumb to monotony and limit themselves, simply because that’s how the world expects them to live. They work 9-to-5 and take one vacation a year to a place they’ve been dozens of times because it’s all they’ve ever known. They look out their window over a cup of coffee in the morning at the same suburban backyard and try to keep themselves from daydreaming about a more fulfilled life.

This is not how RVers live.

When you own a motor home, the world is your backyard. A different setting of natural beauty greets you at your window each morning. One month it may be Yellowstone, the next, Alaska, and the New Mexican desert the month after that. They are free to enjoy moving about, seeking new adventures whenever the mood strikes. The worries that so often paralyze would-be travelers have no effect on an RVer, because they bring home with them, maintaining a stable living condition amidst constant change.

To the RV owners out there, thank you for inspiring us. Your adventures make us wonder, “Why not me?” You have chosen to embrace freedom, to break the monotony, and follow the spirit of independence. To us, you are the picture of the American Dream: the ability of anyone to make their life whatever they want it to be.

Motorcycle Lift Included

Everybody needs a tow vehicle, right? If your tow of choice is a heavy-duty hog, though, you need a special rig to make sure that beautiful bike travels safely with you.

A Better Way to Cook

Induction cooktops are a huge new trend in home kitchens, and for good reason. They are faster, more efficient, and safer than traditional stovetops. This feature is a good barometer to determine how modern an RV is, and can be a huge boon to you on the road if you like to cook. Keep an eye out for this feature in our inventory of motor homes. You’ll find it in great models like this 2016 Mewmar Dutch Star 4018. https://motorhomefinders.com/rvs/2016-newmar-dutch-star-4018/

Small RV, Big Beds

In smaller RVs, like this nimble 2017 Fleetwood Flair 31W LXE, maximizing space usage is a big deal. At just 31 feet in length, it may seem like it would be difficult to accommodate guests in this motor home, but this model comes with one seriously cool feature: a “hide-a-loft” drop-down queen bed in addition to the standard queen bed and convertible sofa. Travel in an agile, compact motor home without feeling cramped! https://motorhomefinders.com/rvs/2017-fleetwood-flair-31w-lxe/

Auto-Start Generator Has Your Back

Pop-quiz! Your shore power goes out while you are out adventuring, and you come back to an RV that’s been suffering from an outage for hours. What do you do? If you have an RV with an auto-start generator, like our 2015 Entegra Anthem here 44DLQ here, the answer is…nothing! It’s all been taken care of, automatically. The coach is cool, the food in the fridge is safe, and you can switch back to campsite power at your leisure. https://motorhomefinders.com/rvs/2015-entegra-anthem-44-dlq/

Fall in Love with This Beautiful RV – Your New Valentine

With love in the air this Valentine’s Day, will you allow us to try and set you up with our friend here? She’s a real beauty, with lots to love!

She’s tall; 45’ in length with triple full-wall slides. She’s pretty, with a custom exterior paint job that will surely turn heads. That’s not all that stands out about her on the outside. Two double power awnings give you shade while you watch her exterior 40” LED TV and take in the fresh air and romantic sounds of nature. In the evenings, those same two awnings will brighten up your campground with LED lighting.

But, as we all know, it’s not just about what’s on the outside: the inside counts, too. You’ll be pleased to discover that she’s full of amazing features like heated tile flooring, a fireplace, her own WiFi network, an induction cooktop, a speedcook oven, and a buffet. Kick back after a long day of fun in one of her two recliners, and rest easy knowing you won’t have to get up for anything since the entire rig is controlled from your Sony tablet.

She’s been taken good care of, garaged when not in use and owned and operated by non-smokers. Her odometer reads just 5,700 miles, which tells you she’s like-new. And she can be yours this Valentine’s Day for just $489,900. What are you waiting for? Make a move!

Green RVing in 2019

More and more people are identifying “going green” as one of their New Year’s resolutions. Concern for our impact on the environment is a hot topic today, and RVers can be especially attuned to the earth due to the amount of time they spend around nature.

If you travel in a motor home and you are interested in helping to reduce your footprint while on the road, here are a few tips to help you keep this New Year’s resolution.

  • Travel with more people
  • Reduce water consumption
  • Recycle paper and plastic silverware and water bottles
  • Use fewer disposable dishes
  • Keep campfires small to reduce the amount of ash released into the air
  • Purchase and use nontoxic cleaning supplies and tank additives
  • Use nature as air conditioning: Use natural shade, open windows, or awnings to cool off. Use sunlight through unshaded windows and natural barriers from the wind to stay warm
  • Keep on top of vehicle maintenance to reduce emissions and improve gas mileage
  • Make use of LED lights to save energy
  • Reduce your speed on hills and enjoy the view

All of these small actions and more can help you reduce the impact that your motor home trips have on the environment in 2019. The RV lifestyle is one that promotes a strong connection to nature, so take care of that natural beauty you love to experience by going green this year!

2019 RV Resolutions

What are your New Year’s resolutions for 2019? Do you want to eat less sugar, workout more, or plant a garden? Resolutions are a great way to make changes that improve your life, with the start of a new year providing the perfect opportunity to start new habits.  There’s still time to make some for 2019.

When you are living the RV lifestyle, there are resolutions that you can make to improve your experience on the road in 2019, like…

Staying on top of maintenance

Motor homes have all of the maintenance needs of a vehicle combined with many of the maintenance needs of a house. There are a lot of systems that you need to keep up with, and if you do, your RV will work better for years longer. Make it a resolution this year to keep up with your maintenance checklists, whether or not you have a trip planned.

One of the easiest-to-forget maintenance steps that is absolutely critical to the life of your motor home is monitoring tire pressure. Keeping tires properly inflated can save you from a lot of expensive wear-and-tear, improve gas mileage, and prevent costly damage. The good news is that the days of getting down on the ground with a gauge and checking air pressure are over. Many newer RVs have sophisticated tire pressure monitoring systems installed on purchase, including many of the ones in our inventory of Class A models.

Traveling more slowly

Instead of racing through your roadtrips, plan things out so that you can enjoy the journey and see things along the way. Take your time; your destination can wait, and the stops you make might end up being just as memorable.

So the next time you hear about an adorable small town along your route or see a sign for the World’s Largest Ball of Twine, flip on the turn signal and take that exit. Savor the experiences of the road!

Leaving reviews

Online reviews help people make decisions about where & what to buy or eat and where to stay. These reviews come from people like you who take the time to share their experiences at restaurants, shops, and RV parks. Be that helpful person this year! It only takes a few minutes to leave a review. By passing along your experiences, you can make roadtrip decisions that much easier for your fellow RVers!

Whatever you want to get out of RVing in 2019, making goals and setting new habits can help you make the most of a year on the road!

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. Find your motor home today!

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.
