News from around the campfire.

- A 35-year-old travel trailer yielded up some secrets to its new owners. In a small black box, hidden away inside the trailer, were military medals belonging to a man dead since 2001. Evidently, Dr. Edwin Harrison, the sixth president of Georgia Tech, hid the medals inside sometime before his death. After the trailer changed hands, new owners found the box and went on a “treasure hunt” to find the owner. They recently turned over the box and its contents to Harrison’s son in Cobb County, Georgia.

- Authorities tell WKBN a Youngstown man has died after being burned by a fire that was sparked by a space heater at Green Acres Lake Park in Diamond, Ohio.

- To help out Canadian farmers in tight times, some local and federal laws encourage “agri-tourism,” wherein farmers can allow folks to camp on their property and get a sense of living on the land. But the mayor of Kelowna, British Columbia, says he figures at least half the “farmers” in his area are frauds, operating what he calls “year around trailer courts.”

- For the ninth consecutive year, Camping World RV Sales was announced as America’s No. 1 seller of tow-able and motorized RVs for 2013 by Statistical Surveys.

- Make my day? A campground manager in West, Texas, had his own Clint Eastwood moment when he found three folks who appeared to be planning to steal LP cylinders from rigs in his campground. The manager brandished a shotgun and ultimately discharged it, hitting one. Not too bright to argue with an armed man — but it figures — one of the would-be burglars was named Looney.

- BANTAM, Conn. :  A man charged for accidentally setting a camper ablaze while horsing around with friends led state police right to his stash of marijuana plants, according to Register Citizen.  A state trooper investigating a trailer fire at the home of 18-year-old Christopher Jacquier and his mother, discovered several potted marijuana plants. Register Citizen explains 13 plants, or nearly a pound of marijuana, were seized from the property, along with rolling papers, a small baggy of marijuana, an electronic scale, a pipe with burnt residue and a water bong.  Jacquier told authorities investigating a fire he accidentally set a trailer ablaze while burning scrap wood. He told authorities he asked his mother for permission to burn the trailer, but she wouldn’t let him, Register Citizen reports.

-  A man was jailed Monday after he led police on a wild chase through Placer County, Fla. that ended with several trailers damaged, according to KCRA.
The Placer County Sheriff’s Department told KCRA the man downed a large number of prescription pills in a suicide attempt, then drove off. The man was drinking beers as deputies followed him.  The chase ended in an RV park in Colfax. The driver smashed into several trailers, causing significant damage, KCRA reports.

News from around the campfire.

- York, PA: The York Campers World RV Show was held in York, Pa., the second weekend of March, as has been done for the past 36 years. The 14 RV dealers present reported brisk sales, and a total of 180 units were shown on over 130,000 square feet of indoor space and 38 units were outside on the York Expo Center ground, said Beverly Gruber, executive director of the Pennsylvania Campground Owners Association. “Fifty campgrounds showcased their facilities and talked with the customers about the advantages of coming to their park,” she explained.

-Timmins, Ontario: When city officials in Timmins, Ontario, agreed to help operate cash-strapped Ivanhoe Lake Provincial Park two years ago, they thought the park would be a paying proposition. Now the city says they may close the gates at the park if they can’t fill 10 more seasonal RV sites. With 53 sites filled, the city set Friday as the deadline for purchases; if not sold, the park will be listed as “non-operational.”

Indiana: Indiana’s state parks and reservoirs are looking for volunteers to serve as campground hosts in exchange for free camping. Hosts work a minimum of 20 hours per week. Sites looking for hosts to volunteer in April are Turkey Run, Indiana Dunes, Potato Creek and Spring Mill state parks. Raccoon State Recreation Area needs a host June 29 through August 3, the entire length, or in two-week periods. A complete list of sites and information on hosting duties is here. If interested, contact the site directly.

Elkhart, Indiana: Thor Industries Inc. plans to auction off remaining towable inventory, work-in-progress units and assorted components Tuesday (Mar. 25) at a former Monaco RV tow-able manufacturing plant on Indiana 19 (2700 S. Nappanee St.) on the south side of Elkhart, Ind., a facility that Thor purchased in February from Ocala, Fla.-based Allied Specialty Vehicles Inc. Auctioneers indicate that a big crowd is expected for the liquidation sale at the 220,000-square-foot plant in which Thor plans on expanding its Thor Motor Coach Inc. division’s motorhome production. The auction, according to a sale flier, will include “enough inventory to run production for weeks.”

Nationwide: RV dealers are expecting big things this year, according to results from a Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) survey conducted in late January to early February. In the March issue of RV Executive Today, RVDA reported that after a good 2013, the majority of survey respondents are expecting 2014 to be even better. Specifically, 68% of dealers who participated in the survey feel the outlook for the retail market this year will be better than it was in 2013. Another 32% believe the market will be about the same as it was last year.

- Manlius, NY: The Great Outdoors RV Superstore in Fulton, N.Y., is proposing to build a satellite recreational vehicle/trailer sales office on the site of the former Fremont Lanes Bowling Alley in the town of Manlius, according to the Syracuse Post-Standard.The Post-Standard reports that a small sales office would be built on the now-vacant 2.5-acre site, with 12 parking spaces and room to park 23 RVs/trailers. The site would open this spring, as soon as the proper permits are secured, Doug Miller, engineer for the town of Manlius told the Post-Standard. The bowling alley was demolished several years ago.

~News From The Weird~

- Three people were badly burned after an RV burst into flames at a Delta, British Columbia, gas station March 15. According to police, the occupants were siphoning fuel through a trap door in the vehicle, which they parked above the underground holding tank. Investigators haven’t confirmed where the stolen gas was intended to be sold, but said it sometimes is advertised on Craigslist.

- Alexandria, LA: Tips about odd smells led to the arrest of a Deville man who allegedly was operating a meth lab in a small camper, according to The Town Talk.
Deputies went to the camper Wednesday in Deville to follow-up on the tips about the smells and suspicions that meth was being made. John Loyd Paul Jr. answered the door, and deputies smelled “a distinct chemical odor,” according to The Town Talk. A deputy who entered the camper to get a gun saw a pan with suspected meth drying on a heating blanket, The Town Talk reports. Paul was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance II, creation/operation of a clandestine lab, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number, illegal carrying of weapons with drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

RV & Camping News

News from around the campfire.

- California: Photoelectric symbiosis is coming to California. A private investor group, Shorebreak Energy Developers, is approaching RV parks, campgrounds and mobile home parks in the state offering to equip their properties with solar panels at no cost, and then sell the park the electricity produced by the panels, saving them 35 to 75 percent on power costs. The group has set aside $50 million for the plan.

-  Online Happenings: Internet giant Facebook has made for plenty of changes for RVers, but in this case maybe not for the good. The company is building a giant data center on farmland near Altoona, Iowa — directly in front of Griffs Valley View RV Park. Owner Ted Griffieon shrugs and says, “Progress is progress,” but will RVers who used to see open meadows and a pond be thrilled to see a modern building out front?

- Borrego Springs, CA: Students on a high school-sponsored camping field trip at Borrego Springs, Cal., had a rude surprise when flammable vapors met up with a campfire with explosive results. Two students and a teacher were injured when, as a fire official told ABC News, “Something caused it to flash. The report is there was some propane or some alcohol nearby. And when I say alcohol, I don’t mean the drinking kind, but fuel of some type.”

- Alaska: For the paltry sum of $279,000, you can own a piece of political history. Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has put her Lexa Class A motor home on the market — looking to downsize to a Class C rig that’s easier to maneuver.

-BILLINGS, Mont.:  A total of 107 KOA campground owners have already “taken the leap” and adopted one of Kampgrounds of America’s three new brand positions.
The three brand positions include:

  • KOA Journey — KOA Journey campgrounds are conveniently located near the highways and byways of North America and are waiting for campers after a long day on the road.

They are great places to unwind and relax before the next leg of their journey.
  • KOA Holiday — Whether campers are looking for a base camp for exploring the area or a fun place to stay with lots of activities, they are sure to love KOA Holiday campgrounds.

- National Public Radio’s automotive experts, Ray and Tom Magliozzi (a.k.a. “Click and Clack, the Tappet Brothers”) were recently asked about towing a travel trailer while using the cruise control. In typical snappy fashion, the return advice included this classic line: “Just make sure you follow all the other towing recommendations the manufacturer makes, which probably include turning the overdrive off when towing, and strapping on two pairs of Depends before you head out with 6,500 pounds kissing your rear bumper.”

RV News and Tidbits

News from around the RVing Lifestyle:

- If the shoe fits … Police in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, investigating a truck theft, found a shoe print from a DC brand shoe. Nearby, an RV owner reported a missing travel trailer. Later, another RV vanished from a dealership — and the thief left a DC shoe print. Next day, a truck in a ditch turned out to be piloted by the DC shoe man. Darcy Blayne Pahl will be spending a year in jail for these and other theft charges.

- Brits can “rent” what’s billed as the largest motor-coach in all the land – a U.S. built Newell Coach, formerly owned by Formula 1 race car drivers, for just a tad over $13,000 a night. Included in the fee is a chef and a team of waiters. For an upgrade, you can hire a limo, a helicopter for rides and, of course, drivers and pilots. And no worries, the coach is delivered to your choice of locations — and there it stays.

- Paradise Valley, Ariz., police said a motor home driver led them on a chase then to a bizarre traffic stop. After exceeding 70-mile-per-hour speeds, the man pulled over but refused to exit the rig, calling 9-1-1 operators repeatedly and telling them the stop was straight out of Nazi Germany. Police finally “convinced” the man, with the help of pepper spray, to come out. They found several ounces of marijuana, a “white-brown powdery substance in containers,” and a loaded Glock handgun inside.

- The annual collection of chunks of ice from a New Hampshire lake was able to start nearly a month earlier than previous years thanks to the recent cold snap.
Rockywold-Deephaven Camps ice haulCrews armed with saws and picks collected the blocks on Thursday for a Holderness campsite, which uses the ice as a natural freezer.Using a specially adapted circular saw, the lake is carved into chunks before the crew use ice picks to haul the blocks into trucks.The giant ice cubes are then driven to the campground, where they are stored in special cabins that prevent them from melting.Campers at Rockywold-Deephaven Camps will be able to use the blocks to help chill their ice boxes and keep supplies cool during their vacations later this year.

- CAPE MAY, N.J. — David and Maggie Robinson, co-owners of Holly Shores Campground in
Lower Township, presented a $10,000 check to Joanne Carrocino, FACHE, president and CEO of Cape Regional Medical Center, which represents the third payment toward a $50,000 pledge, according to Shore News Today.
The Holly Shores donation benefits the Thomas & Claire Brodesser, Jr., Cancer Center Capital Campaign. Shore News Today reports, the pledge is made possible by various fundraising initiatives that are held at Holly Shores Campground throughout the camping season.

- The RV industry hasn’t been pinched by the economy, but nature took a crack at it. Forest River reported a two-day shutdown due to weather at their Class C plant in Elkhart, Ind. — the first time in at least a decade. Snow and intense cold were held accountable.

- Milroy, PA - Lerch RV is Pennsylvania’s newest Palomino RV dealership. Their newest offerings will include the Puma, Puma Unleashed, Canyon Cat, SolAire, SolAire hybrid-expandables, SolAire ultra lites, and Palomini single axle light weight campers. Soon they will be offering these great RVs at the lowest prices in the state along with their current inventory from Keystone RV and Open Range RV Company.

- Rolling out — the 2014 Ram 1500 Eco-Diesel pickup truck. A 3.0-liter engine said to yank a rated 9,200 pounds towing capacity and stated fuel economy of 27 miles per gallon on the freeway, and 20 around town — presumably solo. Chrysler says 1,000 of the new rigs will be in dealerships by next month.

2013 Hershey RV Show

America’s Largest RV Show ~ Hershey, Pennsylvania

Hershey RV Show - America's Largest RV Show

Hershey RV Show – America’s Largest RV Show

The Hershey Show, officially known as America’s Largest RV Show by the sponsoring Pennsylvania RV & Camping Association (PRVCA), has become the kickoff venue for the RV industry to unveil its new model year lines on a national scale to both a trade and consumer audience. And this year’s event – set for Sept 9-15 at the Giant Center in Hershey, Pa. – should go a long way toward reinforcing that reputation.

“The show is doing as good as it’s ever done in the sense of we’re virtually sold out for vendor space inside and we created more area outside,” reports Show Chairman Dan Saltzgiver, general manager for Camping World of Hanover (Pa.). “And then there’s the manufacturers’ space, which was all but sold out at the show drawing going back to the first week of May. Since then, what little space we had, Becky (Lenington, PRVCA executive director) pretty much has it all sold. She actually converted one area that we haven’t used in the manufacturers’ space to try to accommodate some more manufacturers.”

The good news, in a nutshell, from PRVCA:

• Through the end of July, the Hershey Show’s sold space totaled 817,120 net square feet versus 745,127 net square feet in 2012.

• The show’s total square footage as of mid-July: 1.54 million gross square feet.

• Outdoor manufacturer space is up 18% for this year’s show and the number of displays has increased by about 50 booths.

• The sold-out Giant Center is scheduled to house 238 booths. “Inside the Giant Center, the arena downstairs is sold out and then there is the upstairs mezzanine, Saltzgiver told Woodall’s Campground Management. “We are sold out all around there for retail days for sure. And we’re working to get it sold for wholesale days as well. We sell some of that space twice. If someone is only coming for retail, then we resell it for wholesale.”

Attendance Goal

PRVCA, in turn, wants to top 2012’s record-breaking, public day attendance of 43,131, a 29% uptick from 2011. And it wants to surpass the 2,022 attendees registered on last year’s trade days, a 12.77% from 2011. “Even though it doesn’t appear that way, we’ve been increasing the wholesale number of dealers each year,” said Saltzgiver. “So, while that’s not the size yet that we’d like to see it, we’re being told by the manufacturers that it’s still important to them.”

That said, PRVCA won’t be attempting to return the show’s square footage to its all-time, pre-recessionary high because the association has decided not to try to expand beyond the eastside foot bridge to the adjacent Giant Center parking lots, a configuration that just didn’t seem to work for everybody. “I don’t know if we’ll ever get over that (modern high point) as long as the show committee agrees with me that we shouldn’t go across the road again,” said Saltzgiver.

“That just created a lot of problems for the manufacturers on that side, as well as customers going over to that side,” added Saltzgiver. “It’s one of the things on which we made a decision as a group. Things could change. But now we’re deciding not to use that side so that it’s better for our retail customer coming in as well as the manufacturers and suppliers that exhibit at that show.”

Take advantage of your RV Pennsylvania!

Recreational Vehicles take camping to the next level, they’re loaded with amenities that make camping an incredible experience. Although some have more features than others.  Here are three easy ways to make sure you’re getting the most out of your Lerch RV when you’re on the road.

1.  You have a kitchen so cook a feast!

Go gourmet in your RV. When you have tons of cabinetry for storing ingredients, a spacious refrigerator, and 3-burner stove, you’re set to cook like a chef. Have hotdogs and burgers one night, but plan a night where you break out the spices, the premier cuts of meat, the vino, and a homemade dessert. There are tons of RV cooking resources that can help you find RV-friendly gourmet recipes.

2.  There’s tons of sleeping space, so bring your friends. You have room!

In an RV, there’s way more sleeping space than you might ever use. Some of our current inventory floor plans sleep up to twelve campers. Why waste the space, the more the merrier. Grab your friends (or your kids’ friends) and bring them along. Memories are made when you get big groups together. Why do you think so many families try to go camping together?

3.  Make the most of entertainment systems.

Whether your RV has flat screen TVs inside, outdoor TVs, or both, you get the best of both worlds. Roughing it, while being able to laugh along with your favorite movie or TV show. Don’t feel guilty using (and loving) your TVs. Invite the neighbors (campers in the spots nearby) over for movie night or put the game on the outside TV.

Have any gourmet RV recipes, stories of packed RVs, and favorite RV movies? Share with us in the comments. Especially if you love RVing as much as we do!

NPS-Closed Campgrounds,Fewer Seasonal Employees,Sunday Closures

Sequestration hits National Park Service, RVers and campers.

Closed campgrounds, Sunday closures of National Park System units, and 900 permanent positions that will go unfilled are just some of the latest details of how the National Park Service is responding to the ongoing federal budget sequestration.

* At Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota, officials said the 64-site Elk Mountain Campground would remain closed. That move eliminates the need for two summer employees to maintain the campground and interpretive rangers to present evening campfire programs, park officials said.

“The sequestration has forced us to make some tough decisions that will impact visitors to Wind Cave National Park,” said Superintendent Vidal Davila. “People will have fewer opportunities to tour Wind Cave, the park’s primary resource, as a result of less staff.”

The 5 percent budget cut also will lead to a reduction in invasive plant control at the park, maintenance of fences and building repairs, science and research activities, natural resource monitoring, and wildlife management programs.

* In Alabama, Park Service officials said the sequestration forces them to close the Tuskegee Institute National Historic Site, Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site, and the Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail on Sundays until further notice.

* At Voyageurs National Park in Minnesota, the cuts could lead to delays in snow plowing this spring on the Rainy Lake Ice Road, the Kab-Ash Ice Road, and the entrance to the Rainy Lake Visitor Center as park officials look to reduce fuel consumption and overtime pay.

Park officials say that when snowfall occurs before or after regular park operating hours, snow removal will be delayed until personnel report for normal duty hours. If significant snowfall occurs during weekends the Rainy Lake Visitor Center may be closed.

* At Badlands National Park in South Dakota, the 5 percent budget cut equates to a 24 percent reduction in seasonal hires for positions that support interpretive talks and walks, school programs, custodial services, road, fence and building repair and maintenance, science and research activities, natural resource monitoring, and search and rescue operations.

“The seasonal workforce is the heart of the park,” said Superintendent Eric Brunnemann. “This sort of loss cuts deeply into our ability to serve the public, something we are dedicated to doing every day.”

* Across the entire park system, 900 permanent positions that currently are vacant will not be filled, Park Service Director Jon Jarvis said Friday in a memo to the entire agency.

“In an organization with 15,000 permanent employees, 900 vacant jobs have a profound effect. Every activity will be affected. Some impacts will be immediate, others will accumulate over time,” Director Jarvis said. “Fewer law enforcement rangers and USPP officers mean lower levels of protection and longer response times. Fewer maintenance personnel mean that parks may have to close facilities completely when breakdowns occur – and that the $12 billion maintenance backlog will continue to grow.”

The memo did not, however, mention how many vacant positions the Park Service has been carrying in recent months.

Director Jarvis said the agency, system-wide, would see seasonal hirings drop by more than 1,000 employees, would furlough some staff in the U.S. Park Police, and would ban all non-essential travel.

“‘Essential’ travel includes only the following: travel that is critical for health and safety, and travel to attend training required to retain current, mission critical certifications – such as contracting warrants. International travel is cancelled,” wrote the director.

Director Jarvis also noted that the most recent continuing resolution to fund the federal government expires March 27.

“We do not know how, or if, the debate on a new continuing resolution will impact the remainder of Fiscal Year 2013 or the Fiscal Year 2014 budget negotiations. For now, please assume that we will operate for the remainder of the year at the 95 percent spending level envisioned in your sequestration plans,” he wrote.

Fall into Pennsylvania camping

Autumn camping, is camping at the best time of year.

Autumn camping, is camping at the best time of year.

With the arrival of autumn, comes fall foliage and football. Cooler weather and shorter days are on their way, but that doesn’t mean that your camping and RVing fun has to end. Fall is a great time plan a camping trip to destination hot spots that may have been too busy during the summer. In the fall campgrounds and parks are less congested and rates are usually reduced. Many campgrounds offer kids of all ages fun, autumn inspired activities.

Consider a fall color tour while camping — from mid-September to late October the autumn foliage colors can be spectacular. To help you plan your fall color drive or nature hike near your destination, check online for tour dates and maps that list the best locations to view the changing fall colors.

Fall is the perfect time to visit orchards, farms and  markets throughout the country. Cider mills and apple orchards are usually busiest during the fall months, offering fresh apples, cider and doughnuts. Check for farms near your campground that offer corn mazes, wagon rides and pumpkin picking during the fall months. Or find an enjoyable scenic railroad that offers a nice leisure fall inspired scenic trip.

With autumn’s arrival comes the tailgating season. Besides the excitement watching your favorite college or NFL team play, the tailgating tradition allows you to enjoy some leisure time with family, friends or complete strangers, before you enter the stadium. Tailgating in an RV is an experience that just may spoil you and your guests for life.

Besides having a roof over your head in case of bad weather while tailgating, most RVs have a bathroom allowing you to skip the porta potty lines and a refrigerator to keep your food and beverages cold. After the game, forget about sitting in traffic, fire up the grill for some hot dogs or hamburgers, watch game highlights on your TV or play some games until it’s time to leave.

Sooner or later, the cold weather will approach and many of us will be winterizing our RVs. So get out there and enjoy the fall camping season before it is too late.
