It can be touched off with even a small static-electricity spark. Despite the dangers, many people elect to carry gas cans (with gas in them) for […]

|Selling Your RV: Consignment vs. Private Sale
You’ve bought an RV but now you want to upgrade to the latest and greatest. Get something bigger for the new truck you just upgraded. Maybe your RV is spending 90 percent of its time in storage and you feel a different owner would give your camper the adventures it deserves.

|What Your Used RV is Worth
Do RVs depreciate? Just like other vehicles, RVs' value depreciates over time and its value depends on the brand and condition of the RV. Rare or classic RVs eventually stop depreciating and their value starts to go up if they are kept in excellent condition.
In order to determine the worth of your RV consider the following:
- NADA Value - it's like a Kelly Blue Book for RVs. It is used by banks and dealers to determine the national value of your RV.
- RV Listing Site - use RV listing sites like RV Trader and RVT to see what the going rate of your RV is in your market.
- Large RV Dealer Sites - use large dealer sites to see what similar new RVs are selling for in your area.

|Top 5 Best Bunkhouse Travel Trailers
Camping is an activity that is widely loved by many families because it helps families bond with each other without the distractions of their everyday life.
And RVs are a great way to help families achieve their camping goals and build memories. For many families that are just starting out RVing, travel trailers with bunkhouses are a popular option.
There is a bedroom for the parents and a bunk bed area for the kids that usually can be closed off with a door. In between both bedrooms is generally a living space and kitchen allowing the privacy needed for sleeping, but also providing a common area for families to get together and bond over meals and games.
