Every year we make it out to Delaware to spend time with Danielle’s parents at the beach. This year we decided to take a different approach and the girls flew out while I booked it across the country in the 5th wheel (driving long distances with a baby isn’t fun).

So much has been said about Millennials and it’s not always good. If you’re between the ages of 18-35, you’re in the group.

There’s a lot of reasons to hit the road, but us Millennials are flocking to the freedom of the RV Life at record rates. Dealerships are trying to tap into this fast growing demographic and many realize it’s the future of RVing. But why? Here’s a few of the reasons:

Most RVers dream of slowly cruising along the entire West Coast of the United States. It’s a bucket list type of trip that will leave you in awe of the beauty and seclusion on this rugged coast.

Most Surfers dream of the cruising the west coast and hitting the waves along the way. However it’s usually in a surfer van that is a little bit better than roughing it.

We decided to go Surfing for 6 months on a Border to Border trip up the west coast, but instead of roughing it in a camper van, we would have all the modern comforts of home along with us on our trip.

The goal was to start at the Mexican Border and slowly head up the west coast until we can see Canada.

Big shifts in society pose big challenges for RV Dealerships to adapt so they stay in front of their potential customers. It’s no secret that we’re going through a MASSIVE change in our society on how people consume things. The mobile revolution is upon us.

We want to consume what we want, when we want it.

I’ve spoken to hundreds of Dealership owners, GMs and Marketing Managers and it’s overwhelming how rapid people are seeing diminishing returns on traditional advertising.

Take into account that our industry is booming right now, too many Dealerships are riding this wave of consumers wanting to buy campers and they ARE NOT positioning themselves for a downturn. History tells us that it’s inevitable that this boom will dry up for awhile and we will see a pull back. Luckily that doesn’t mean you have to see a pull back in sales, you just need to adapt your marketing.  Read More

We spend each summer with Minnesota being a home base. My parents wanted to entice us to bring the grandkids around more and had RV Hookups installed on their 4 acres. It’s the perfect mix of quality family time and space when we want it.

So after leaving Glacier National Park we headed on over to the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Where people are “Minnesota Nice”, you can find natural beauty, and you won’t want to leave… until the cold comes! Read More

I speak with a lot of RV Dealership owners and GM’s that tell me they haven’t taken social media marketing very serious cause they don’t understand it. They’re frustrated because they’re seeing diminishing returns on traditional marketing channels and they keep hearing about how effective Social Media is but they don’t “get it”.

I have heard an equal amount of people that tell me they’re frustrated cause they’re already “doing” social media marketing but aren’t getting a result. Let’s be clear, having a Facebook Page and having someone post once in awhile who doesn’t know how to convert on Facebook, won’t sell any RVs.

What’s Going On

Let’s look at some of the current trends and break down in simple terms what’s going on. First off, we need to understand that Marketing is simple (not easy, but simple):

Wherever the Eyes and Ears are of your prospects/customers, is where you need to be!

Let’s face it, we have to stay in shape (this is where my dad would remind me jokingly that round is a shape). You only get one life and you only get one body.

The biggest challenge we’ve found with being healthy while traveling in an RV is routine. It just so happens that the biggest challenge of being healthy in a traditional sticks & bricks home is routine also.

Fact: America is fat and unhealthy.

Sometimes after visiting the dog park we find Bailey deep in thought… The other day she was spaced out looking out the window. We figured she was reflecting on her travels so we decided we’d show people what The Life of a Full Time RV Dog looks like.

WARNING: These Dogs are so cute that you may run out and buy the first Pomeranian you can find after seeing these pictures…

Planned adventure is great, but when you stumble onto something spontaneous it can increase the level of excitement. That’s what happened during our visit to Missoula, MT. Read More

Glacier National Park is unbelievable. It’s one of those places that everyone should visit in their lifetime. We had the incredible pleasure of RVing here in the spring when things were just getting opened up for the season.  Read More
