Snow is predicted and we are getting a few flurries. Brr! Tomorrow it's supposed to go down to 5 degrees. Yikes! Today should be pretty busy. Tomorrow is questionable, at least in the afternoon; the Denver Broncos are in the playoffs. I had more time to look at RVs this morning. Just inside the door, though are these pink flamingoes- yard art for your RV spot! Grass Haven Outdoor is a new company offering stylish camping gear for RVers and tenters.
Looking at trailers for active families, this pull trailer has an ATV loaded onto that front carrying area. It does keep the weight further forward instead of pulling down the rear. And this toy hauler is using the top bed that lowers for storage.
One drawback of many smaller rigs for us is that the bed is situated so one person has to crawl over the other to get in and out. In a 24' Airstream trailer, there is room at the end to get by so that inside person doesn't have to crawl over. The new Airstreams are much lighter inside than older models too. This Coachmen Class C with double slides is designed for outdoor use. You have the big screen TV (and another inside) plus the kitchen/wet bar area on the outside.
I did go back and look at the Somerset pop-up trailers with toilet and shower because of am inquiry by a friend. They do have about 25 gallons of fresh water. However, I saw no mention of a place to dump if you weren't hooked up. Under the discreetly hidden toilet is a 5-gallon portable tank that can be dumped easily. The caravans (RVs) for rent in New Zealand all had this feature since most RV sites there do not have a hookup for sewage.
Camping World is here with both accessories and a selection of RVs. They have their big bags for grabs all over their displays - great for show visitors who collect literature. At another dealer's location, I was intrigued by the Pleasure-Way van with its amazing amount of counter space for a Class B.
And there are expensive Class As at the show too. The Tiffin Phaeton is perhaps the most expensive model. With both front slideouts extended, you could almost dance. Extra features like this gas fireplace add warmth and hominess.
One more day, so tomorrow's your last chance to attend the Colorado RV Adventure Travel Show. I was delighted this morning to meet Mike A, a subscriber of RV Lifestyle Ezine at my first talk. Stop by at 5 in the seminar area or tomorrow if you attend! Jaimie Hall Bruzenak
