Indescribable Beauty with Volcanic Roots

Crater Lake has been an inspiration for travelers for hundreds of years.

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…

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.”

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.

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…

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…

Take What you Need, Leave What you Don't

At Cruise America, we can get your rental RV all ready for you to travel, but it's up to you to pack the things you want to take along. Especially when it comes to packing for the kitchen. While we do have some items that you might find useful to rent (such as pots, pans and silverware), the majority of items will need to come from you.

Our rental class C motorhomes are very comfortable, but no matter how much space there is in an RV, there always seems to be a need for more. This is…

Nothing Compares to the Colors of Fall

There is nothing more invigorating than getting an up-close look at Mother Nature's finest work through the windows of a rolling home away from home. And there is no better time than the fall to experience it. The leaves that were once bright green take on hues, ranging from neon yellow to pumpkin orange to fiery red. The combination of these fall colors brings the landscape to a vibrancy that…

Don't Let your RV Travel Interrupt School

Just because you're on a trip, doesn't mean your kids' education has to come to a halt!

If you're one of the millions of Americans that home school their children, remember that traveling in an RV is one of the best educational experiences there is!

Stay Fire Safe

Cruise America wants to remind our customers that this is the time of year that the wildfires pop up all over the forested lands, and that they are nothing to mess around with. The landscape is so dry in some places, that sparking a fire can happen easily and quickly. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time can be disastrous, so vigilance is important. Not only do you need to be aware of where the fires are occurring, but you should also know what you must do to prevent forest or brush…
