On January 8, 2013, Target announced that they will PRICE MATCH against Amazon.com among others. So even if you DON’T buy things on Amazon, being unaware of Amazon prices will hurt you. Or conversely, if you want to save money in Target, take your smart phone and check Amazon pricing. If you find things cheaper […]
Nu-Wa is only accepting orders through Sept 15, 2012. They just don’t sell enough to keep their factory going. ( Read about it here : http://www.nuwa.com/news/questions/99/?goback=%2Egde_1941545_member_147575725 ). They point out a nice solution in their letter – not necessarily planning on doing it – but list it as an option – having one manufacturer build […]

This probably doesn’t seem like much to people around the US, but it is raining in Austin Texas today ( May 6, 2012 ). It is pretty wonderful stuff!
Sheri and I have been blogging for a whole year on the subject of recreational vehicle’s and the RV lifestyle. We don’t profess to know everything – you can’t – ever – let alone in a short amount of time. But we’ve learned a great deal, made some mistakes, and tried to pass on our […]
This article describes a project from mobile loaves and fish to help people who are chronically homeless. I think this is a really, really neat project. Now you can couple this with those FEMA trailers and really do some fantastic good for some people who need a good turn. What a neat project. I think […]
A friend sent me this article on the optimism in the RV industry for the year 2011. I have to agree. I see the bias in the article around the idea that “RV’s are just for vacation”, which isn’t true and I think is selling a mini trend short. It would also have some effect […]
One of the upsides of having an RV park directly on a river is that you get great views, great fishing and can enjoy the water, trees, and nature. One of the downsides of an RV park directly on a river is that if it rains a great deal at one time AND the river […]
No way I could capture the whole thing in the title, but the article is about a family that sues Walmart because they were staying in a Walmart parking lot in their RV and were attacked by a stranger. They claimed Walmart knew that the stranger was a loiterer and failed to act. This is […]
Sheri and I have been very impressed with Heartland and we think that the Cyclone 3950 Toy Haulers are an amazing fifth wheel. Of all the fifth wheels we’ve examined, we keep coming back to the Heartland Cyclone Toy Hauler. When I read this article, I couldn’t help but wonder if Heartland can expand because […]
Here is an article that talks a little bit about being an RV transporter and some of the problems around it. It doesn’t seem that you would get rich (or even be very solvent) doing this, but if it aligned with your personal plans and you approached it as an adventure, this could be something […]
An RV park in Everglades Florida is looking for some management help.
As I drive around the Texas countryside, I can’t but wonder “how many people own RV’s?” On one hand it seems that I can’t go even a mile or two without seeing a travel trailer or a fifth wheel parked in a yard somewhere. Many have hookups I can see even as I zoom past […]
People often wonder “How big in an industry?” That is a very tricky question. In the RV world, you can look at NEW RV’s sold, used RV’s sold, aftermarket parts sold, service provided. Then do you count things like the parks? Do you count the economic activity related to an industry? Its a FUN question […]
This government auction has a few RV dealers and a congressman up in ARMS! If you look around the web you’ll find a few news stories about it. I just think this is a very interesting question. The government has the unique ability to do things so BIG that it could really have an impact. […]
