RVs: What’s New In The Industry?

It wasn’t too long ago when RVs were made with little wooden studs covered in aluminum sheets with a dab of paint here and there. They were heavy, ugly and were not much more than a metal sided camper. There is a new sheriff in town!

There is a new level of quality and comfort than ever before because of the newest technologies used in manufacturing. Aluminum framing, laminated fiberglass side walls and one piece roofs have made RV much lighter and more durable than they have even been. Advances in sealers and construction techniques have virtually eliminated the typical problems camper trailers have had with leaking and inefficient use of space.

Lighter weight construction coupled with advancements in suspension systems and hitches make towing so much easier than ever before. RV enthusiasts have so much more control over their trailers when towing than they have ever had. Family camping trips are now safer and a lot more enjoyable.

There was a time when RV manufacturers used the lightest and cheapest furniture and interior appointments they could get. The result was even expensive trailers looked cheap. Couches were extremely uncomfortable to sit on much less sleep on and dinettes tables were so bad no one wanted to even eat there. Mattresses were so thin you could almost read the paper through one and you felt every spring in the middle of your back all night. You could not wait to get back home after your vacation it was so bad.

Now manufacturers have begun using quality furniture and appliances. Many have gourmet kitchens, pillow top mattresses and air beds sleeper sofas. With the advent of ducted air conditioning, you can sit in your recliner in front of a 50in LCD TV while you enjoy your favorite show. RVs have definitely changed a lot.

The biggest change however, has come with the advent of the Internet. Gone are the days of trudging to one RV Dealer after another, listening to one sales pitch after another just to see different floor plans and prices. You can now do it all in your underwear sitting at your computer. You are able to views different options, visualize different floor plans and compare prices and find that one that floats your boat.

For proof of this, all you have to do is look in the mirror. You are reading this article about RVs on your computer rather than going to your local Keystone RV Dealer and looking at RVs for yourself. A-HA!! I do know what I am talking about after all.
As you shop for a new RV remember they are not your grandparents camper trailer anymore. You can now see our great country the way it was meant to be seen in an RV. Go RVing today. You will be glad you did.
