In this weekly roundup, Togo RV shares the top stories and features that are impacting and shaping the RV community. We cover everything from news and travel updates to gear and gadgets, and all the good stuff in between.
The Best Water Filter for Your RV
RVers hook up to water sources at campgrounds throughout the U.S., but can you trust what comes from the tap? While urban RV parks usually have city water that’s regularly tested, more remote campgrounds may offer unregulated well water. An RV water filtration system helps clean the water and improves both its taste and safety. Togo RV’s guide to RV water filtration systems explains the terms and gear, helping you find the best option to fit your needs.

You Won’t Believe the Massive Main Bath in This RV
If you want to entertain friends and family while camping, the 2021 Jayco North Point 382FLRB is the camper for you. Two large couches and theater seating offer plenty of places to sit in the front living room. The kitchen features a residential fridge, island, four-burner stove, large pantry, and coffee bar. A guest bath is conveniently located in the middle of the coach, but the most impressive feature just might be the main bath that extends across the full rear of the trailer. It offers two sinks, a huge walk-in shower, and washer and dryer prep.

Which U.S. National Parks Top This Award List?
Every year, Tripadvisor analyzes ratings and reviews to determine travelers’ favorite vacation spots for the Travelers’ Choice Awards. In addition to naming the top 10 picks in different categories, Tripadvisor also features a list of must-dos from each location. Perennial favorites like Yosemite, the Great Smoky Mountains, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and Glacier made the national park list for 2021. But which park earned the coveted number one spot? Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park landed the big win with its pristine lakes and scenic mountain landscape. Planning a visit? Take a hike along Jenny Lake Trail, hit the waters of Jackson Lake, or drive the 42-mile Scenic Loop Drive to take in the stunning views.

Meet the Real-Life Nomads from Oscar-Nominated Nomadland
When France McDormand’s character gathers around the campfire with her fellow RVers in Nomadland, many are real-life RVers. Who are these modern-day nomads, and what makes them seek this off-road, off-grid lifestyle? Bob Wells, who plays himself in the film, explains that the Great Recession helped start the surge, with more joining the lifestyle each year due to ongoing economic concerns. While varying circumstances cause some to become full-timers, the sustainability, sense of community, and true happiness to be found inspire modern-day nomads to keep on traveling.
