Fall Foliage Destinations That Aren’t New England
If you can’t make it to New England to admire the fall foliage, fear not. Chances are there’s a place near you that offers awe-inspiring landscapes. Thrillist selected 14 of the best locations for fall, from California’s Lake Cuyamaca and Washington’s Chuckanut Drive to New York’s Catskill Mountains and Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park. Colorado’s explosion of golden aspens is also a must-see, along with the Great Lakes region, including Wisconsin’s Door County and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.Read more from Thrillist
10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Airstream
We all know Airstream is an iconic RV brand, but did you know New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) actually houses a Bambi trailer in its design collection? Airstream trailers also have a spot in history, as part of the U.S. nuclear bomb testing program and as temporary homes for astronauts quarantined after space travel. Some unusual units have even been made into a funeral hearse or covered in gold anodized aluminum.Read more from Airstream
Did You Know You Can Turn Your Vehicle Into a Generator?
RVers have a love-hate relationship with traditional generators. They allow you to camp off the grid and provide electricity when you need it. However, the sound, smell, and mess can be disruptive, and generators frequently need to be refilled. Surprise—your tow vehicle has almost everything you need to generate power. With a device like CarGenerator, you simply attach the inverter to your vehicle to generate up to 50 to 70 hours of electricity using the fuel in your tank.Read more from CarGenerator
This Fifth Wheel Is Guaranteed to Keep You Cool—Literally
The CrossRoads RW3951WB is a beast, coming in at 15,394 pounds (dry weight) and more than 42 feet in length. In a rig this size, you need the heating and cooling systems to keep up. CrossRoads performs rigorous temperature testing to ensure the insulation and equipment provide ultimate comfort in 0- and 110-degree settings. But, that’s not all you’ll love about the RW3951WB. This luxury fifth wheel has a bedroom suite featuring a king-sized bed, double sinks, a spa-like shower, and washer and dryer hookups. The living room is the ultimate entertainment space with three sofas, an electric fireplace, and large TV.Read more from CrossRoads
Don’t Leave Home Without This Charging Gear
For many of us, our smartphone is a map, camera, computer, and connection to the world—that is, when it’s charged and powered up. Travel with the proper charging gear so you don’t wind up with a dead, useless device. Products like a 10-foot charging cable, power banks, and charging cases are must-have tech gear for any RVer.Read more from Outside Online

The CrossRoads Zinger 259FL earned high marks for its front living room and generous counters, and the CrossRoads Zinger 299RE is a top pick thanks to its hidden pantry.
