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.

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.

Camping at Osage Hills State Park

Just over an hour north and east of Tulsa is Osage Hills State Park. Located in the rolling hills of Osage County, the park is a beautiful retreat from the humdrum of everyday life. There are trails to follow, wooded campgrounds, and a creek and small lakes that are stocked with bass, crappie, catfish, perch, and more.
