An Easier Way to Level Your RV
Have you ever grown increasingly frustrated while trying to level a trailer at the campground? Too often, wood or plastic leveling blocks either aren’t quite high enough or are too high to properly level your RV. Andersen’s Camper Levelers take the guesswork out of the process with an innovative curved design that helps you get perfectly level every time. Just slide the Camper Leveler under your tires and begin backing. Whether you need as little as half an inch or as much as four inches, these levelers can get you there. Though Andersen’s Camper Levelers are built to last—and to withstand up to 30,000 pounds of weight—a lifetime replacement warranty offers additional peace of mind. Check out this two-pack kit or deluxe trailer gear duffel set.

Bring Fido in These Pet-Friendly Trailers
Dogs and cats are often beloved family members, and of course you want to take them along on your RV travels. Unfortunately, the mess from their meals and fur can dampen the experience. Highland Ridge has introduced three special features in their line of pet-friendly RVs. A pull-out drawer makes it easier to store your pet’s food and water dishes, a designated pet bed provides a comfy sleeping space, and with no carpet or floor registers, these trailers are easier to clean. Highland Ridge currently offers more than 70 travel trailers and 50 fifth-wheels with pet-friendly features. The 2020 OT328BHS is a fun pick for families, with a large bunkroom, theater seating, and two bathrooms.

Where Luxury Meets the Great Outdoors
Surrounded by the beauty of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, the new River Run RV Resort aims to bring luxurious camping accommodations and amenities to the rugged outdoors. Located two hours west of Denver along the headwaters of the Colorado River, this Sun RV Resort’s awe-inspiring surroundings are rivaled only by its amenities and accommodations. Spend your days in the cool waters of the zero-entry pool, relax in the hot tub after a strenuous hike, or practice yoga poses surrounded by spectacular mountain views. Kids can stay entertained in the arcade, bowling alley, or sports court complex. In addition to RV sites, the park offers Conestoga wagons, Airstream rentals, and cabins. It’s easy to see why luxury RV resorts are a growing trend.
