The Versatility of the Mid bunk Fifth Wheel

What is a Mid Bunk? Perhaps the most versatile floor plan to come out in the last several decades is the mid-bunk fifth wheel. Several manufacturers offer a mid-bunk, and most share similar features. The bunk room is in the middle of the coach, as opposed to the more common rear location... which is probably where the clever "mid bunk" name came from! Usually, there is a loft with a bed located above the bunk room, but if this area is not needed for sleeping room it makes an excellent attic storage area. Unlike a typical bunkhouse, the mid bunk room usually features a small sofa that folds down into a bed, and sometimes a bunk over the sofa.

Where to Camp in Winter

Well, yeah, the short answer is "as far south as you can" but there are great things about camping in winter in Oklahoma. The brisk mornings are refreshing. The cold nights give you an excuse to snuggle closer. Winter evenings are made for campfires and hot camp-cooking. Winter days can be beautiful with a dusting of snow or viewings of winter wildlife. And there are fewer crowds everywhere. But some of your favorite campgrounds may be closed... so where CAN you camp in winter in Oklahoma? Most Oklahoma State Parks have at least one campground open throughout the year. Often there aren't as many amenities available, and there isn't a campground attendant on site, but on the plus side, it is usually . . . Read more

Is an A-Frame Camper Right for You?

A is for Adventure The adventurist is a new breed of RVer, or maybe it is an old breed that is making a come-back. The adventurist isn't looking for five tons of home-like luxury, they want to travel light, to be able to pick up and go on a whim! These travelers have a bucket list, and they aren't waiting for old age to start marking items off. Some are after thrills; mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding, rock-climbing, you name it and they'll try it. Others simply want to see as much of our great nation as they can. Why stay in one place when there are so many new things to discover? The rise in adventure camping accounts for the sudden demand for small, lightweight campers. Sales of pop-ups, . . . Read more

Three Common Mistakes to Avoid When Choosing an RV

I showed a customer a used travel trailer the other day that was simply beautiful. Less than a year old, barely used, perfectly clean; if it were a car one might think it was only driven by a little old lady on Sundays. The customer asked why the previous owner traded it in, and although I didn't know the story about this particular RV, I've seen three scenarios over and over again. So here are three mistakes we often see buyers make, and how you can avoid them: 1. Buying Too Small Often times, first time RVers purchase a small RV to "try it out" to see if RV camping is something they will enjoy. The problem is, they never know if they like it because their trailer is so small they are never . . . Read more
