Why Cruise America?

RVs, or recreational vehicles, are a great way for a family to roll across the country, taking in the views. This is due to a number of reasons, but the most obvious ones are the comfort and convenience factors. While this is probably very old news, it doesn’t hurt anything to extol the virtues of RV travel from time to time. At Cruise America, we want to make sure that you know we are here, and what we can do for you—especially if you don’t own a motorhome yet, or if you are thinking of…

Choose your Camp Wisely

Traveling in an RV combines the lure of the open road with the creature comforts that so many of us have become so accustomed to. One of the greatest things about RV travel is that there are RV parks all over the U.S. that are available for your stay. However, before you head out on your explorations, there are a few things you should know about campgrounds that accommodate RVs—they are not all created equal!

RV campgrounds are abundant across this country of ours. They can be found…

Indescribable Beauty with Volcanic Roots

Crater Lake has been an inspiration for travelers for hundreds of years. There is nowhere else on this blue planet that you can experience a crystal blue lake with pure, clean water surrounded by sheer cliffs that rise close to 2,000 feet up, with two magnificent islands created from a violent volcanic past. It is Crater Lake National Park, and it serves as a place of beauty and tranquility, as well as an outdoor classroom and laboratory for the whole family. It’s the perfect RV…

How About a Grilled Cheese … On the Grill?

There are all kinds of interesting food to savor, but sometimes it’s so tasty to just go back to the basics and throw a variation on a classic. For instance, have you ever considered making a grilled cheese sandwich—on the grill?

Very few people would disagree that everything seems to taste better when it’s prepared on the grill; and the flavor is even increased more when it’s prepared and eaten while camping! This blog contains a way to prepare a classic, simple dish on the grill,…

Campgrounds Amongst the Redwoods

Most travelers have heard of Redwood National Park, as it is the home of the tallest trees on earth. But the parks are also a sanctuary to vast prairies, wild riverways, oak woodlands and almost 40 miles of beautiful coastline. Every one of these locations plays host to a rich variety of wildlife, as well as cultural traditions. The National Park Service and California State Parks work together to oversee these riches for not only the enjoyment, but also the inspiration and education of all…

A New Concept in Camping

There are several ways to camp with a motorhome. Traditionally, most travelers choose to set up camp in an established RV park. Finding one of these has never been very difficult, as they generously dot the entire nation. As a matter of fact, where you find a popular attraction, you are sure to find RV camping facilities. Some of the parks charge a very reasonable fee, and some are a bit more expensive, depending on the location and the “amenity factor.”

In 2010, RVers Kim and Don…

What is your In Tent?

There are those who claim that it’s just as comfortable for them to camp in a tent at an RV park than camp in an RV. Anyone who says this has obviously never camped in an RV!

Let’s take a minute and consider some of the differences between outdoor “tent camping” and camping in a motorhome. It really takes a special breed to be able to camp in a tent and be comfortable at the same time! In this day and age, the modern rental RVs (like you’ll find at Cruise America) are just like small…

To Appreciate Camping—Look Up!

One of the greatest advantages to traveling in an RV is that you often find yourself in quiet, serene places far from the hustle and bustle of the city. From the beauty of the plush landscape and green foliage, to the crystal blue waterways that dot our nation, traveling in an RV places you on the 50-yardline of nature’s splendor.

Just because the sun goes down over your campsite—rendering the landscape invisible—doesn’t mean that the beauty has to end. Being far from the lights of…

Thank You!

I wanted to send a note to tell you how impressed I was with your company and my Cruise America experience. From Sabrina Pietroricca who I dealt with on the phone for my reservation to Crandall Payne at your Las Vegas location, your entire team was very pleasant and helpful throughout the entire process.

This was the first time I've ever rented a RV and things went well. The motorhome was in great shape, clean and ready for me when I showed up. While the office was VERY busy, I can…

Healthy Snacks for the Road

There is just something about rolling down the open highway on a family vacation that makes a traveler want to snack. It's easy to stop at the store and load up on junk food, and isn't it funny how the "junkier" the food is, the better is seems to taste? That's because it's loaded with the three flavor makers: salt, sugar and fat. Things like potato chips, candy bars and donuts are the normal snacks for the road for many folks, but that can be a real physical downer. With just a little…

Tips on Traveling to Banff and Glacier Parks in an RV with my dog

Hi All,

Just got back from my trip to Glacier and Banff parks. Two trips back and forth between US and Canada by car and one by air. A couple of observations:

On the car trips, custom agents didn't pay much attention to the dog. I was only asked for vet paperwork once, out of four border crossings.

On air trips, custom agents paid more attention.

-On trip into Canada, the custom agent said my crate/carry bag was too small. Dog needs to be able to stand up in it. I'm…

Choosing the Best Motorhome for our RV Lifestyle

We’ve got the bug. After our test drive of the RV lifestyle, we knew that we were ready to embrace the open road with open arms for more adventure. Renting an RV isn’t cost effective and doesn’t allow for any modifications we’d like to make for conservation and convenience. Clearly the only choice is to purchase a motorhome.

But which class of motorhome would we want to make our home on the road?…

Stay Fit While you Travel

There is nothing more enjoyable than climbing aboard your Cruise America RV and hitting the open road. It's the lack of a tight schedule, the fresh air on the beach or in the mountains and the complete absence of stress that really makes traveling in a motorhome fun.

However, if you allow it, there could be a downside to it all. When you travel long distances, it involves a lot of sitting. In addition, we don't always make the wisest eating choices when we are on the move. The good…
