Jayco Puts Its New Travel Trailer To The Test

I have always thought Jayco RVs give our customers an excellent product at a great value.  Jayco motorhomes and trailers give you a well equipped vehicle that will last you and your family for years to come.  The Skylark is Jayco’s newest travel trailer to hit the market.  The Skylark has green technology that allows the trailer to have minimum environmental impact while still giving you all the traditional comforts of a Jayco.  The Skylark not only looks good, but performs better than most trailers before it.  Jayco put the Skylark up against their 1,000 mile durability test and it passed with flying colors.  What all goes into the 1,000 mile test?  Check out the video below to see all the different road conditions used to test Jayco products:

Avid RVers Are In Good Company!

Anyone who has been behind the wheel of a motorhome can relate to the feeling of open road freedom RVs give you.  RVing is becoming increasingly popular with Americans and is being recognized as a fun, comfortable, convenient way to travel.  People everywhere are talking about RVing (and all it has to offer) and even celebrities are promoting their love of RVs.  Check out this list from RVIA of celebrities who love the RV lifestyle.

“I don’t think you can call yourself a true American until you’ve been behind the wheel of a RV…I love seeing parts of the country I wouldn’t otherwise.”   -Jeff Daniels (actor)

“You meet so many people in an RV. And they’re so friendly. I couldn’t do the research I do without one. In an RV, I can park and have everything I need.”  -Sue Henry (best selling author)

“I’ve gone from being a major league pitcher to a major league RV owner. I’ll travel roughly 5,000 miles in my RV this year. It’s a great way to see America, and as relaxed a way to see the country as there can possibly be.”  -Jim Kaat (former major league baseball pitcher)

“My team is sabotaging me by not letting me sleep in my motorhome.”  -Bode Miller (U.S. Olympic skier)

“My RV is the only place where I can find some peace and quiet.”  -Jeff Gordon (NASCAR driver)

“There’s nothing not to like about it. The freedom of being able to pull up, stop, power up anywhere you want – beach or whatever. Set up and have your front yard different every single day.”  -Matthew McConaughey (actor)

“I enjoy the RV world. I will have one until the day I die.”  -Bob Gibson (Hall of Fame major league pitcher)

“Being an RVer helps me do my job better. The RV world gives me a chance to balance things out. It allows me a sense of freedom.”  -Clarence Thomas (U.S. Supreme Court Justice)

Which of these RV quotes do you think holds true?  What would you say about RVing?



Pennsylvania RVers: Have You Ever Been In A Teardrop Trailer?

motorhomes Pennsylvania

In a world of extra luxurious RVs and RVs customized down to the drawer handles, the teardrop trailer is a break into simplicity.  The tear drop camper is perfect for one or two people who want an easy no hassle towable.  They are easy to haul, set up and pack up.  Tear drop campers are easy to haul and are named for their distinctive shape.  They normally have a bed big enough for two people, a kitchenette, and a few other features.

RV Dealers

These special trailers became popular right after WWII when the soldiers came home and wanted a cheap and easy way to take a vacation.  Teardrop trailers were so easy because they did not require a special hitch or vehicle to tow.  (Even a motorcycle could tow a teardrop trailer.) Since the 1970s, teardrop trailers have decreased in popularity and you would be hard pressed to find one at a RV Dealership.  Most teardrop trailers you see now are vintage trailers that have been refurbished or a trailer someone made themselves.  Although not a practical choice for a large family, teardrop trailers have a vintage feel that is hard to resist and if the video below is any indication they are really easy to set up!


Would you like to try a trip with a teardrop trailer?  Do you know anyone that has made their own?


Pennsylvania RVers: How Was Your First RV Trip?

I was a baby when I took my first RV trip so I don’t have a great memory of it, but I love hearing stories from customers about their first RV trip.  Some people have mishaps or interesting “adventures” but everyone says their first RV trip is unlike anything they have experienced.  Having the open road at your fingertips with all the comforts of home along for the ride is a hard feeling to beat.  People of all backgrounds, areas, and experiences have fallen in love with RVing.  My best advice for a great first trip is to rent before you buy, do your research, and ask questions!  We are happen to help anyone who comes to our RV Dealership with anything from buying or renting a RV to giving them a list of essentials to pack.  I want to make sure everyone has a great first RV experience.  Speaking of first RV experiences, this clip of Drew Barrymore describing her first RV trip to Jay Leno has always made me laugh:
