Greetings campers! One of the joys of working for Lakeshore RV Center is that every day we get to interact with customers who are as passionate about RVs as we are! And we get to hear all about our customers’ journeys on the open road. They offer new insights into the world of RVing and often have great tips and tricks for everything from flushing black tanks and cleaning out water lines to their favorite destinations and campfire recipes. Recently I overheard a conversation between one of our salesmen and an older couple about how RV’s have evolved over the years. The older couple have been RVing enthusiasts for decades and were sharing their thoughts on the differences between RVs of yesteryear and the RVs of today.
The seasoned RVers were spending a few hours at Lakeshore RV looking around at our large selection of RVs. They weren’t shopping for a new one as much as just seeing what was out there. They were content with their older-style travel trailer, but they were curious about what was available in a new RV. Within just a few minutes of them arriving and touring some of our travel trailers and fifth wheels, they couldn’t believe their eyes! They were shocked at how much RVs had changed since they bought theirs years ago! They marveled at the size of the RVs and the multitude of amenities that come standard on most RVs. That’s when the older gentleman said, “All you really need is a bathroom! This is supposed to be a camper, not a house!”
Ha! Funny! The more I really thought about what he said, the more I thought he was right. But I guess it depends on what you expect to get out of your camping experience. There are people that feel the only thing they need their RV for is to use the restroom, like this gentleman. But there are also many others out there who want every possible comfort and convenience of home while in the great outdoors. In addition to a full, luxurious bathroom, some people also want a beautiful kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances, center island, and hardwood cabinetry. They want home theater systems with big TVs and premium sound systems. And they want plush leather furniture to sink into at the end of a long, fun day of adventure. In all, they basically want a house on wheels. And with today’s RVs, it’s possible to get almost any comfort of home so that you can “rough it” in luxury.
Depending on your RV needs, we at Lakeshore RV Center have an RV for you. Whether you want to keep it simple with a lightweight, uncomplicated travel trailer, or you’re looking to go all out with an extravagant fifth wheel that has all the bells and whistles, we have the perfect RV for you. Come see us today and let us help you find your next home away from home!
