Store Gloves, Hats, and Plastic Bags Out of Sight

All Class B campers require ingenuity when it come to storing stuff. If the manufacturer has provided storage for everything, we call that a Class A, with a name like Newell or Prevost. There's nothing wrong with carrying a lawnmower in one of eight bins below the windows in a behemoth. But travelers in smaller […]Read More

DIY: How to Get the Best RV Seats in the House

“I'm the one with the bad back,” Roger said, when Lynn complained of a sore seat while driving. Our 1995 Dodge 190 Popular Roadtrek has more than 160,000 miles on it, and it seemed that somewhere around 120,000 miles and 17 years the seats started to get uncomfortable. We love our Roadtek and are not […]Read More

Tips: Home Water Works Everywhere

When our RV water pump stopped working, we didn't switch to champagne.  We just traveled like we do when we are winterized.  We use several water bottles filled at home and stored in our camper. We fill and take along these bottles every trip. Two store away bottles hold 3 liters each. Those ride in […]Read More

Gadgets: RV Won’t Start? A Fast Fix with Multiple Uses

We park our Roadtrek in our driveway summer and winter. In winter we plug into our 120 VAC shore power outlet to trickle charge the battery and keep it ready to start.

C’mon In! An RV Show Sans RV Show

At home, if a stranger is walking down your street, you don’t invite them in for a home tour. But at a campground, well, things are a little different. If you hang around outside someone’s rig long enough, there’s a good chance you’ll get an invite for a tour. And you might do the same […]Read More

Power Up! How to Upgrade Your RV’s Magnetek Converter

If you have an older Roadtrek or many other older RVs you likely have a Magnetek Converter/Charger (newer Roadtreks have inverter/chargers like the Tripplite). Magneteks are very common in the RV world. Your fuses and circuit breakers will be inside the cover of the converter box. For those not familiar with the differences, a converter […]Read More

Don’t Like Your RV’s Table? Change It!

One of the things we love about our Roadtrek is the large dinette. Our friend's 37-foot Class A motorhome can barely seat four people at the table of the RV.  And that's average-sized adults!  The two on the end are still overhanging the aisle by half a cheek. Makes for cozy dinners. However, our Roadtrek […]Read More

Lighting Versatility for Your RV or Camper

Lighting is important to enjoy a space and to complete the task at hand. Have you ever fumbled in the dark for a latch or tried to remove a splinter with bad lighting?  It's frustrating!  If you read “house nifty” (as Roger calls them) magazines there are often articles about good lighting for your kitchen […]Read More

8 Simple & Easy Ideas to Make Small RV Life More Comfortable

If you're the new owner of a new or experienced Class B you are probably figuring out how to outfit it for travel. The tendency is to bring too much. Regularly review what you took last time – if you haven't used it in a few trips – leave it at home.  Also, part of […]Read More
