On our first trip in our RV, we went to Texas to visit family. The western part of Texas is not known for its cold weather. In fact, it is not uncommon for residents to run their AC’s through Thanksgiving. In short, we did not expect to run into a snow and ice storm on the way back home.

The storm was big enough to have a name, Frona. We had plent....

Anyone who has ever had carpet knows what a pain it is to keep your RV floors clean. An older RV with carpet covered floors—and even one with hard floors—is likely to need new flooring at some point. This was the case with our 14-year-old trailer, so we jumped in and got the job done.

However, before we started the actual replacement process, we h....

As peddlers of beds and mattresses will tell you, the average person spends about one-third of his or her life in bed.

Today we are going to talk about a very real problem for RVers everywhere: sleep.
 
You see, RV manufacturers have to work really hard to keep the weight of their motorhomes and trailers to a minimum. Unfortunately, this often means cutting corners. For instance, the stock mattresses in RVs are lightweight, but....

Ask any seasoned RVer, and he or she will almost certainly tell you just how useful a roof vent can be. Fortunately, most RVs come out of the factory equipped with one of these handy little fans. However, some are missing this feature.
 
If your trailer or motorhome is one of the models that doesn’t come off the lot equipped wi....
