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…

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…

Potatoes Au Gratin Fondue

There are all kinds of fun activities to be had while traveling in a Cruise America rental RV. One of the things we overlook sometimes is the magic that can happen in the kitchen.

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…

Test Run with an RV Rental

There is no better way to discover the beauty and wonder of this big blue marble we live on than to explore it in an RV. So many travelers would love to give it a try, but they don't own a recreational vehicle, so they don't pursue the idea. It's surprising how many people are not aware that RVs can be rented by the day, the month, or for as long as you choose. That’s what Cruise America is all about … affording folks the opportunity to experience RV travel for themselves, even if they don't…

Nothing Compares to the Colors of Fall

Traveling in the fall in an RV provides a great perspective to anyone who loves beautiful scenery. 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! If you think about it, your RV can be a rolling classroom, offering learning opportunities that just can't be found at home, or in a traditional classroom. There are a number of thought-stimulating experiences that can be found on the…

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…

The Hassles of Traveling

There really is nothing better than traveling. There's just something about leaving the day-to-day rat race and setting your cares aside that makes it possible to relax and de-stress for awhile. However, there are a few things that can really be annoying about taking a conventional trip … the kind where you fly, or take your personal vehicle. Here they are:

1. Being subjected to airline schedules, late planes causing missed connecting flights, packing everything into small suitcases…

RV Park Connections

When you rent an RV from one of our Cruise America rental centers, you will be shown the correct way of operating the features of the coach. However, there are a few things that you will need to practice once you're out on the road to become proficient. One of these things is how to properly connect to the electric, water and sewer at an RV park. Hooking up to these facilities is not an exact science, but you want to make sure that contamination, electric shocks and getting your feet wet are…
