Life Hacks for the RV Traveler

As amazing as RV travel is, there can be a few “speedbumps” along the way, unless you happen to know the trick to avoiding them. Here are a few easy remedies that we like to refer to as “RV Hacks.” Take a look to see if these ideas might help you:

-Cruise America rental RVs come with a kitchen, along with plenty of storage space. But if you’ve ever experienced broken wine or juice glasses after a bumpy ride, try slipping them into “koozies” (foam-insulated can and bottle holders)…

RV Humor for the Road

Cruise America is all business when it comes to setting you up and making you comfortable in one of our class C motorhomes. But we also love to laugh, so we thought we’d share a little RV humor with you … enjoy!

Speedy Senior Citizen

A police officer pulled over an elderly woman who was driving a Cruise America rental RV.

Policeman: “Ma’am, you are driving mighty slow for being out here on the highway. The speed limit is 65 MPH.”

Lady: “Officer, I have seen…

Bike rack and bikes to buy and sell

Hey guys, we're toying with the idea of buying a bike rack and 4 or 5 bikes in Seattle for a 10 week trip across the states. We'd be looking to sell them, perhaps to another Cruise America customer, once we got to New York. We'd probably be arriving NY around the 12th July 2017. Has anyone tried RV travel with bikes? Any tips or cautions? I'd be interested to hear any suggestions as to how we might sell our gear once we get to NY. Thanks.

Fall Leaves are Falling in Colorado!

Colorado is a beautiful region whose scenery changes drastically with every season that rolls around. Even the state’s name connotes “color.” The word “colorado” means “red-colored” in Spanish. This description is not only apropos for the landscape, but for the menagerie of hues that make an appearance each fall as the fall leaves began to turn their beautiful yellows, golds and reds.

One of the best ways to view the annual spectacular show of colors offered by our nation’s 38th…

Kid-Friendly Cooking in an RV

What is it about RV cooking that produces meals that taste so much better than anything you could ever get at a restaurant? Is it the fact that you’re in the wilderness?

At Cruise America, we believe that the food made in an RV tastes so good because it’s main ingredient is always love.

RVing in South Dakota

Cruise America has locations all over the United States (and Canada). That’s because no matter which area of the country you may be visiting, there are things to see and do, and RVs are the best way to catch all the attractions.

If you’re not familiar with South Dakota, you may be missing a diamond in the rough. A simple drive through the state’s wide-open spaces, gently rolling grasslands, magnificent hand-carved rock formations and the crystal-clear night sky make you realize just…

Common Sins of RV Barbequing

We love to get photographs of vacationers enjoying their Cruise America motorhomes. A large number of these pictures seem to involve outdoor mealtime fun, and they almost always feature two things: A Cruise America RV and a barbeque grill!

Camping and barbequing have always gone hand in hand, and so we figured you may enjoy some barbequing tips. Actually, these are not so much “tips,” as they are suggestions on how to avoid the most common cookout sins that novice campsite chefs…

Countdown to Our Next RV Trip

My darling companion, Mike, and I are currently in the planning process for our next RV trip.  Although if I had my way, we'd always be planning our next RV trip.

OK, you caught me - I AM always planning our next RV trip!

This next trip will be kicking off in September and is part of an influencer marketing campaign we've put together called The Heartland Tour.  Most of the sponsors who have signed on are agave spirits brands (like tequila and mezcal) but we have a few…

Spend Money on Experiences Over Things

One of the best healers that we know of is happiness. It plays a crucial role in our health, as well as our state of mind. People go to great lengths to find happiness, thinking that the greater our riches become, the happier we will be. It’s true that having money certainly helps take care of the necessities in life, but once your basic needs are met, money doesn’t make you much happier.

One question that looms over consumers of today is just how to allocate the money that they do…

Summer in Coeur d’Alene

Near the western border of Idaho, just a hop, skip and a jump from the state of Washington, is Coeur d’Alene (known as “CDA” by the locals). This little town is truly a gemstone for all those who visit.

CDA was given its name by French fur traders referring to the Coeur d’Alene Indian tribe members. The term literally means “the heart of an awl (a very sharp tool).” The name reflects the French traders’ experience with the tribe’s traders as tough businessmen, “sharp-hearted” or…

Best RV dealer yet.

Just to let you all know, I have bought 3 motorhomes dating back to 1974. I recently (6 weeks ago) bought a used 28 Majestic from the Cruise Canada location in Bolton, Ontario. I sold used cars sometime ago, so I was a little sceptical when the salesman told me that the 2011 I was looking at would be checked over by their staff and made great for my use. I was surprised with the level of commitment that they showed. New curtains, cushions and a new mattress inside, new tires outside, a new… Continue

RVing Yellowstone

Yellowstone National Park is an immensely popular destination for RVers. It’s a 3,500-square-mile recreation area that is situated on top of a volcanic hot spot. The park spreads across Wyoming, but into parts of Montana and Idaho as well, so naturally, a motorhome is the perfect way to see the jaw-dropping views. There are gorgeous canyons, alpine rivers, dense forests, hot springs and gushing geysers, including the world-famous “Old Faithful.” There are also large numbers of wildlife…

Avoid the TSA Hassle by RVing

Taking a traditional family vacation is so relaxing. It’s a simple matter of figuring out how to pay for six airline tickets, and buying them in advance to avoid the last minute expense.

Packing is a breeze, if you are a proficient mathematician that can figure out the density factors for fitting everything you will need for ten days of travel into one (or two, if you don’t mind paying the extra fees) relatively small suitcase.

At Cruise America, we are grateful for the…

A Beautiful Shortcut

State Route 128 is one of Utah’s prettiest state highways. It has been designated as the Upper Colorado River Scenic Byway, and is part of the Utah Scenic Byways program. Locals, however, call this stretch of road “the River Road.” It connects the I-70 to the US 191, just to the north of Moab, Utah, and follows the banks of the Colorado River through a spectacular gorge, with high, sheer sandstone walls that provide a beautiful setting as you travel in your Cruise America rental RV. This…
