Have you seen the video by Inside Edition about improperly hooking up your trailer? They warn to “Beware” and after watching their video it became evident that maybe our followers need a heads up on the dangers as well. While driving a trailer can be scary and for the first time tower, if you don’t understand the dynamics of towing it can be dangerous, but if you’re cautious and vigilant in your towing set up, it doesn’t have to be so dangerous.
Travel trailers are much safer if you tow with a Sway Control-Equalizer hitch that is set up properly. We always recommend an equalizer hitch, in fact if you’re purchasing your set up through us we won’t set it up without one. It’s an extra expense right up front, usually between $500-$800 but it can save your life and the life of those on the road around you.
We have another beautiful Arctic Fox on it’s way and we know you’re going to love it! The demand for these Northwood built trailers have been so great that we just can’t keep them in stock. This travel trailer is just short of 30 feet and weighs about 6700 lbs dry and a max weight of 10,000 lbs. It has E-Z Lube axles, 15″ Aluminum wheels/tires with shocks on all 4 wheels. Stabilizer Jacks and Aluminum Tread entry steps. This All-Conditions, Four Season insulation package will keep you comfortable in the Summer and Heated holding tanks give you piece of mind in the dead of Winter.
The rear kitchen allows for easy access to the fridge while you’re on the road and the floor plan provides plenty of room for enjoying your family and entertaining guests. Dual entry doors on this trailer, as well as an enclosed bathroom/shower, outside of the bedroom. Standard features [...]
When is the last time you checked your fire extinguisher? For some of us, the time between checks goes a bit too long and if we’re being honest, some of us can’t even remember if it’s ever been checked. I remember growing up, my Grandmother had an extinguisher behind the seat of her old Datsun pickup, it was always there, in fact, I don’t think it ever moved more or less get checked for efficiency or safety. So, that image has always been in my mind that an extinguisher is good forever. As most of you know, this is a dangerous practice and like anything, it must be kept up, to work when it’s really needed. Standard safety guidelines says you should be having your extinguisher checked by a fire protection equipment company annually, and a complete breakdown and internal inspection must be done every 6 years. Eeek, my poor Grandmother would have never known [...]

We are seeing a great rise in full time RV-living families. With this, we have had lots of questions about should I or shouldn’t I? Should I keep that open? Should I secure that while I’m traveling? Should I turn off the battery when not in use? Should I remember that noise? Here at RV Sales we are a First-time buyer friendly company. We don’t think any question should be overlooked and we want to make sure your RV living is as smooth as possible. So, we stand behind the idea of keeping a log. I don’t know about you but I have a memory that seems to fail me at times, call it age, call it a brain too full of great idea’s, call it whatever you want but it’s the [...]
Well, it’s a great question because some of us don’t use our RV as much as our regular vehicles. So, if it’s just sitting why should I change the tires? Here’s our answer to that. The suggestion from the Manufacturers is that after five years the RV trailer tires should be replaced regardless of the tire appearance or tread depth. You really get about three to five years on your trailer tires, after three years, regardless of how much you use it, one third of the tires life is already gone. Because we don’t have a magic ball to predict the future, being safe is much better than being sorry. Trailer tires just don’t last like a regular car tire and although it may be a bit expensive to replace your tires, it’s much more expensive to replace a part of your trailer due [...]
Excel has been known as one of the best RVs in the industry for more than half a century. Their innovative design and custom rigs for full-timers has created a loyal following. Unfortunately, when Peterson Industries closed unexpectedly in March of 2015 Excel owners discovered that they were owners of what is now called an “Orphan RV “. An RV is referred to as an “orphan” if the company that manufactured it is no longer in business. Two years later, many Excel owners are curious how that effects their resale value. As Excel’s #1 dealer for Peterson Industries, we likely have the largest stock of used Excels on the market today; Here is what we know. When Excel closed, NADA book values dropped immediately, which hurt all of us. We had eight new Excels and twenty used Excels on the lot when Peterson closed. We feel your pain but on an even larger [...]
It’s almost that time again, when RV Sales dresses up about 40 trailers to provide a safe place for our community kids to trick or treat. Not just that, but we ask our community to bring in 1 canned food or non-perishable food item for admission and everything goes to our local food pantry. We have received many donations towards this event but we’re not quite to our goal yet. Every year we bring pallets of food and cash donations to Bethel just in time for the Holiday need. This time of year is critical to some our local families and here at RV Sales, we take that seriously.
