RV LENDING – THE INS AND OUTS OF LONG TERM FINANCING

Today’s RV buyer is presented with so many decisions to make when purchasing a new or used camper.  Sometimes it gets a bit overwhelming, and many people make knee jerk purchases because it just gets to be a bit much.  Many of your family owned dealerships will be more than happy to counsel the purchaser on financing options, and explain the ins and outs to keep the purchaser in the best financial position. The biggest mistake that a person can make is to buy a camper that is potentially not the best fit.  Too often we hear from people who regret the purchase they made and want to “down-size” in order to lower their payment.  The biggest misperception . . .

The Circle of Life in Camping

Over the many years I have spent in the RV industry, one thing has become apparent – and that is that the family or couple who camps together stays together.  Many customers we have had have been married or together for decades.  The longest that I am aware of is in the 65 year range.  That is both amazing and heartwarming.  We were recently at the wedding of one of our camping club members’ daughter with a few other club members.  There is a dance that they have where all the married couples get on the dance floor and get called out by how many years they have been married.  My husband and I managed to make it to the over 30 year callout, and gladly . . .

Geocaching in Nebraska

What is Geocaching With warmer weather on the horizon now is a great time to start Geocaching! A geocache is a container that usually holds a number of items. Your goal is to find a cache and log it into your cache journal (numerous apps or the official site). You can take something out of the cache as well (IF you replace by something of equal to greater value). Many different apps also give your ratings on caches, how easy it is to find, and a brief description of the cache or location. There are even “tracking bug” caches that you take from one location to another (which is perfect for an RV’er who loves being on the road)! Never destroy a geocache! They are protected by . . .

It’s that Snowbird time of year

As the polar vortex nears, and the wind turns bitter, we are seeing so many of our customers head south for the winter.  With phrases like “I’m getting out of here”, it makes those of us left here longing for balmy breezes, and shorts weather. As my husband and I inch nearer to that magical retirement age, we have begun to dream of following in the footsteps of so many customers before us.  The questions of what type of camper to buy, how basic or luxurious, how big, and so many other items crop up. If you are fortunate enough to own a larger pickup, you can opt for a large travel trailer or for a luxurious fifth wheel.  However, we are seeing a trend in our retirees . . . Read more
