More and more RVs come equipped with slide outs. A slide out, sometimes referred to as a slide room, significantly increases the amount of living space in an RV. Many RVs now come with multiple slide outs which can turn an RV into something akin to a mansion on wheels.  Not satisfied with ”just” an RV anymore, the demand for increased real estate from RV shoppers has driven the slide-out explosion in the RV industry.

If you’re new to RVs, towing a big travel trailer can be tough. Especially when you need to gas up. Not all gas stations are alike, and not all gas stations are RV friendly. One of the largest hurdles is proper clearance for your trailer. But finding stations to accommodate your vehicle is possible. Here are some tips for finding the best RV gas stations.

They say there’s no such thing as a free lunch. However, there is such a thing as free RV camping. In fact, President Roosevelt called for the creation of free campgrounds on Federal lands when he addressed Congress in 1901. (Although at that time he wasn’t referring to RVs!)

Now commonly referred to as boondocking, camping free of charge is real, but it isn’t for everyone. Boondocking isn’t officially defined but the term stems from the expression “boondocks” that refers to a remote area. Overnight RV parking places such as truck stops, Wal-Mart parking lots, or campgrounds in which RV hookups aren’t available may not necessarily seem remote, but are all generally lumped into the boondocking category.
