Opinion: Linen service, cable TV and air conditioning, oh my!

(Jan. 9, 2017) — Those are jolly numbers, and all the more so when contrasted with comparatively paltry camper-night revenues for RV or tent sites.

Opinion: Gearing up for a new year of change

(Jan. 2, 2017) — All my travel proved that the RV lifestyle is second-to-none in the ability to experience new things, marvel at some incredible scenery, and meet people from all walks of life.

Opinion: ‘Selective disclosure’ game must end

(Sept. 22, 2016) –I heard no difference from the owner of a Phaeton motorcoach to us with our “starter” rig or to a neighbor with a Casita. I find it amazing. All the shoulder shrugging, all the half smiles, and all the nods of understanding — but no anger, no outrage.
