Stephanie’s No-Mod RV Makeover

Stephanie’s No-Mod RV Makeover

On Episode #82: RV Makeover 101 with the Pop Up Princess, I shared 5 ways I had given our RV a little face lift this Spring. After that episode aired, I was surprised by a deluge of emails and social media comments asking when we were going to share pictures of the makeover. Insert long, uncomfortable pause. I’m certainly not an interior designer, and I’m basically the anti-crafty mom. So while I was happy to talk about my RV changes on the podcast episode, I was sort of nervous about sharing photos.

The Wall Street Journal’s Take on the RV Industry. Right, or Wrong?

The Wall Street Journal’s Take on the RV Industry. Right, or Wrong?

The Wall Street Journal recently published a feature about the state of the RV industry that was interesting, and very much worth reading, but somewhat flawed in its perspective. RV Sales Revive, but Without Frills (WSJ, Dec. 23, 2015) The article’s first sentence declares that “Americans are buying recreational vehicles at the fastest rate in more than a decade.” Then the author, James R. Hagerty, quickly pivots and writes that “Unfortunately for RV makers, many are hitting the road in smaller, less expensive... Read More
