During our recent trip to Gulf Shores State Park in Gulf Shores Alabama I took some time to talk about what we consider 5 must have RV accessories. RV's these days come loaded with fantastic features and creature comforts. That being said there are always things you can do to improve your experience. It may be protecting your unit with a surge protector, or adding a water pressure gauge. Comment below on some of your favorite RV accessories that make life easier...or are just plain fun to have. A special thanks to our sponsor - Walnut Ridge RV for providing these awesome accessories for this video. https://www.walnutridgerv.com/ Instagram - @our_great_rv_adventures Website - http://www.agreatadventure.net

This video is dedicated to a discussion on metal vs fiberglass when it comes to travel trailers and fifth-wheels. This is the first part of a new series I am doing called "fact or fiction." It seems to be a big discussion everywhere you go: Which is better, metal or fiberglass? You hear all the factors that come into play: weight, construction materials, cost, the look, and most of all the dreaded DE LAMINATION word! In this video Jordan Marowelli walks thru the pros and cons of each and explains exactly how the different types of fiberglass units are made! Special thanks to our sponsor Walnut Ridge for allowing us to come do this video and a very special thanks to Jordan for his time and expertise!

Everyone loves the space and towing style of a fifth-wheel, but not always the weight. When I am out driving I see tons and tons of people in half-ton trucks. Most 5th wheels are not going to work for those trucks. Cougar has introduced an entire line of half-ton tow-able fifth wheels aptly named "Cougar half-ton." This video features the Cougar 29RDB. This model is a 2018 and has the following specs: Dry Weight - 8,380lbs Pin Weight - 1,455lbs Length - 34ft Height - 11.58ft You can find this model here - https://www.walnutridgerv.com/floorplan/cougar-half-ton-29rdb/ Other half-ton towable walk-thru videos Cougar 32BHS - https://youtu.be/_BteMDFSrsA Cougar 29RKS - https://youtu.be/-Dec82xSpB4 A special thanks to our sponsor - Walnut Ridge RV https://www.walnutridgerv.com/ Instagram - @our_great_rv_adventures Website - http://www.agreatadventure.net

Care and maintenance of your recreational vehicle is an important step in maintaining the safety, dependability, and appearance of your trailer. Additionally, following the factory recommended maintenance guide also enhances the re-sale value of your RV. Recently we took our Puma TT to Walnut Ridge for yearly maintenance. Given our relationship with them we were able to grab Mark, one of the service techs and go into detail on exactly why maintenance is so important to the health and longevity of your RV/Camper.

Some RV Dealerships show you one price, but when you go to buy the camper suddenly you are faced with lots of "extra fees." This is commonly referred to as "hidden fees" and they can add up fast. Not only that, they can in fact change the monthly payments you budgeted for. As with buying any big ticket items, the key is going in informed and asking lots of questions. Hopefully this video empowers you with all the right questions to ask and things to look out for. If you have any questions leave a comment below.

Dump stations, black tanks, gray tanks, the stinky slinky...none of these words bring to mind happy thoughts. I know when I was a newbie I was terrified of many things...one of them being a dumping disaster similar to that of Robin Williams in RV. During our recent trip to Gulf Shores I had the chance to put the Valterra RV Sewer valve through it's paces. I will be sure to add updates as the season rolls on, but wanted to share my first impressions of this little beauty and see if it was worth all the hype.
