The Best RV Apps You Want for the Road

A road atlas and a handful of quarters to use at a pay phone used to be your standard traveling companions, but thank goodness for technology! These are some of the best RV apps to put on your phone or other mobile device to make traveling easier and more convenient, and have more accessible help available in the event of a roadside emergency. The best part is, most of these apps are free! Find them in your app store and see how they help out on your next camping trip!

While Traveling

Want real time updates about construction, road delays, or accidents? Waze is a fantastic traveling app (along with Google Maps). You can navigate easily through traffic and find the best route for getting where you need to go.

The GasBuddy app helps you find the cheapest gas price around. Search and compare prices within your immediate proximity and avoid overpaying at the pump! This is one of the best RV apps you’ll find for saving money at gas stations.

Overnight Parking

One of the best RV apps for helping provide locations and directions to free parking lots is the Overnight Parking Finder app. Walmart store parking lots give you both a place to stay and an opportunity to do a quick restocking shopping trip – plus, the app also locates Redbox locations. Movie night!

If you’d prefer a commercial RV park, try the RV Parks and Campgrounds app. Parks and campgrounds are sorted in the database based on ranking, so you can make sure of finding a nice campground based on other campers’ reviews.  

Weather, Safety, and Convenience

With the WeatherBug app, you can check out current conditions, access the Doppler radar, get updates on severe weather alerts, forecasts, and more. It’s a must-have while you’re traveling, since weather can change in an instant. This app is reliable, accurate, and comprehensive, and you won’t want to go without it.

And for the dirty tasks that no one likes to talk about but everyone has to do, one of the best RV apps anyone needs to keep around is the Sani Dump app, which includes a map with hours of operation and price information about the closest RV dump site. Have reliable and speedy access to a dump site makes this task get completed in a safe and responsible way. Don’t put it off!

If you’re crossing state lines, get the State Lines app. State laws differ, and you can look up what directly affects you – from holding your phone while driving to sleeping at a rest stop to firewood regulations. 

If your family is needing to upgrade your new or used RV, don’t hesitate to contact us today. Everyone has unique traveling needs and preferences. And thankfully, we can help make finding the RV you need just as easy as downloading the apps.

Tips for Using Your RV for Tailgating During Football Season

It’s football season! From a sizzling grill and cold drinks to a fun game of corn hole, nothing beats tailgating with friends and family before the game. Are you going to be using your RV for tailgating? Make the most of game day with our favorite tailgating tips below!

Clear Out Your Storage Space

You’re not going to need your routine camping supplies while tailgating, so clear out your pass through storage to make room for what you really want. Throw in your camp chairs, a card table, and the corn hole game.

Tailgating Tips


If your climate will still stay warm for another few weeks, make sure to pack a citronella candle or two to keep the bugs away. Many people like to put up 10’x10’ tents, but with the power awning on your RV, you’ll have plenty of shade!

Grab Games and Movies for the Little Ones

Several hours of outdoor play can be tiring for the kiddos, so make sure they’re well taken care of. Packing along a few of their favorite games and movies is a great idea so they can step inside the RV and relax while enjoying a snack. Make sure the bedding is fresh in case your tailgating happens over naptime.

Tailgating Tips

Plan the Menu

The pantry in your RV can hold all of your dry goods like chips, but pre-assemble whatever food you can, like dips or things that can be pre-mixed before reheating. Your RV’s outdoor kitchen is perfect for throwing some burgers or hot dogs on to grill, or heating up a skillet of buffalo chicken dip.

Tailgating Tips

Chill the drinks the night before and stick them in your RV’s fridge on game day. Whatever you plan to eat while tailgating, consider divvying it up between your buddies. Make it a bring your own meat event and have the grill hot and ready when everyone shows up.

Summer may be over, but football and tailgating are a season all their own, and using your RV for tailgating helps you get the most out of it. We hope these tailgating tips help make your tailgating season the best it can be! Contact us today if you’re ready to shop around for a new or used RV that includes the amenities you want for the best game day possible!

With all of the hassle of unpacking and trying to making everything look the same as before you drove it around the country, you may loathe setting up your RV once you finally get to your destination… So we thought it was time to eliminate that problem.

Organize these–and keep them organized easily!

Imagine you’re spending the weekend in your beautiful travel trailer, but as soon as you get to your campsite your drawers are a mess inside! For all of you who love a clean RV and an organized kitchen, we have a great idea that will stop this from happening so much so that you can start your vacation off right.

Keystone RV Premier Ultra Lite Review

What makes an ultra lite so special? If you have a larger SUV and have been having trouble finding an RV small enough to be able to tow it, an lightweight travel trailer is a great choice. Our Keystone RV Premier Ultra Lite for sale is built to be towed by smaller vehicles, but with the same amount of amenities that a normal weighted travel trailer has. Continue reading the Keystone RV Premier Ultra Lite Review for more details…

Keystone RV Premier Ultra Lite Exterior

Exterior Features

When it comes to a durable exterior, the Premier doesn’t take any short cuts. It’s specifically designed with a dual propane tanks with a cover, an in-frame dual batter rack, and it also provides a spare tire for extra precaution.

It also has an extended 4″ down spouts and oversized grab handle at the main door, and 9″ aluminum triple entry steps to make it easy to get in and out.

For ultimate durability in such a lightweight travel trailer, it’s constructed with aluminum wheels to keep it on the road for a long time.

Not only is it safely constructed, it has a few other extremely convenient exterior features as well. Along with a power tongue jack, it also provides you with oversized exterior pass-thru storage with lighting that makes it easy to find what you’re looking for at any time of day.

Depending on floorplan you decide on, a few boast an outdoor kitchen, which is a great added feature if you’re looking to spend a lot of time outside.

Interior Features

You may think that with an ultra-lite there would mean less room for interior features, but ultra-lites have lighter construction, not smaller spaces. That way you won’t have to compromise with space!

This recreational vehicle provides residential-style furniture for you to cozy down into, with night shades in the living area to create a warmer atmosphere for chilly evenings (plus a water heater by-pass for winterization when those chilly nights turn into the winter storage season!).

The Premier provides interior LED lights and, for those of you who love to bake or cook a yummy chicken dinner, you’ll be able to enjoy the 17″ oven that is conveniently offered in the kitchen. This space has a residential back splash for a more modern look, and a retractable kitchen faucet that is easy to use for cleaning your dishes!

Here are some additional highlighted features we thought you’d might enjoy: 

  • 13,500 BTU A/C
  • Bluetooth AM/FM Stereo with Aux, DVD, and i-Pod Hookup
  • Microwave
  • Hardwood Cabinet Doors
  • Foot Flush Toilet
  • Tub Surround with Shelves
  • Full-Extension Drawer Glides
  • Stainless Steel Sink
  • 32” LED TV
Premier Ultra Lite Travel Trailer

Hello, Lightweight RVing

Goodbye, high gas mileage! By towing a lightweight RV such as the Premier Ultra Lite, you’ll be saving money with the easy towing, and if you are using a smaller vehicle, you’ll not be using as much gas as a larger truck would need. If you have any questions, please contact us.

We wish you easy towing and happy camping!
