Truck Bed Campers to Consider
When describing RVs, most people categorize them as towable or drivable, and often forget about truck bed campers. Today’s roomy, versatile options aren’t like the rustic, simple campers of the past. These rigs are easy to take off-road, and offer a surprising number of amenities, including a wet bath, functional kitchen, comfortable bed, and more. Plus, you still have the ability to tow a boat or small trailer. If you’re in the market for a new RV, check out the Lance 650, Bigfoot 2500 Series, nüCamp Cirrus 820, or Go Fast Campers Platform Camper for a variety of options in this burgeoning category.Read more from RV Magazine
Ditch Your Keys for This Bluetooth RV Door Lock
Lippert is making it possible to ditch your RV keys with a new Bluetooth-enabled door lock, which allows you to open your rig from your smartphone. No extra wiring is required, and most doors can easily be retrofitted to use the device, which starts at $240. Compatible with Lippert’s OneControl app, RVers can track and preserve the lock’s battery, and even set it to storage mode. The lock also uses traditional keys and a digital keypad for alternative methods of entry.Read more from Lippert
Welcome to Yellowstone’s Paradise Valley
Visitors to Yellowstone National Park will have a new option for an upscale stay, thanks to Under Canvas North Yellowstone, opening in the spring of 2023. Dozens of glamping tents will be set amid the mountain plains along the Yellowstone River, offering the chance to truly experience Montana’s big skies. Visitors can enjoy on-site restaurants, comfortable accommodations, and exceptional outdoor experiences, all without leaving the park. Under Canvas already operates a campground near Yellowstone’s west entrance, while the new offering is near the north entrance.Read more from Under Canvas North Yellowstone
Investing in Infrastructure for Electric RVs
As more electric tow vehicles hit the market and RV manufacturers look to develop electric rigs, the RV Industry Association (RVIA) is lobbying to make sure the infrastructure is there to meet future demand. The group says the current situation for vehicle chargers is not sufficient to meet upcoming needs, especially for larger, longer e-RVs. Pull-through vehicle charging stations are becoming increasingly necessary. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act could be used to provide the funds for such upgrades, ensuring future e-RVers have the charging capabilities they need for their journeys.Read more from RV-Pro
