INTEREST RATE INCREASE NEXT MONTH A NEAR CERTAINTY

CHICAGO TRIBUNE SAYS INTEREST RATE HIKE COMING IN DECEMBER

Today’s Chicago Tribune reports that a Federal Reserve increase in the interest rate next month is a “near certainty”.  It would be the first interest rate increase in nearly a decade.  The Fed cut the short-term interest rate that it controls to near zero in 2008 to try to stimulate growth during the recession.  Now, with unemployment down to 5%, the Fed is expected to increase rate at their next meeting Dec. 15-16.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR RV LOANS?

Interest rates for RV loans have been at record low levels for so long that it almost seems like the new normal.  But we will probably begin to see a return to the much higher pre-recession rates for auto and RV loans.  It may happen gradually or it may happen more quickly!  This could  be the last chance to lock in the current low rates.

RIGHT NOW IS THE SMART TIME TO BUY NEW OR PRE-OWNED RV

If you are a potential  first-time RV buyer, now is the time to do it!  If you still have an RV with a long term loan at the high pre-recession interest rates, now is the time to trade it in and lock in the current low rates.  You may find that you can have a new RV at a monthly payment that is as low as, or even lower than, the payment on your old one.  The window of opportunity is closing.

AN OCCASIONAL LETTER TO LET OUR CUSTOMERS KNOW ABOUT CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS

We are in the midst of our month-long 53rd  Anniversary Sell-A Bration and want to invite you to come visit us.  We are proud to have been in this exciting business for 53 years —  now with 2nd  generation management.

There are a lot of great things going on right now in the RV world.  New products.  New features.  Fresh new floorplans.  Ways to make campers lighter weight.

# 1 SELLING JAYFLIGHT TRAVEL TRAILERS are now available with optional fiberglass exterior.  Jayflight has for years been the country’s most popular aluminum-skin line of travel trailers because of their practical floor plans and quality interiors and cabinetry.  Now you can get the same Jayflight with optional fiberglass in place of the aluminum skin.  Fiberglass looks sharp, is easier to keep clean and is hail resistant.  Hail resistance is especially desirable here in the Midwest where hail storms are common.

LIGHTWEIGHT TRAVEL TRAILERS – Expandable hybrid  travel trailers have been very popular for several years as one answer to the need for more room in a lightweight, easy-to-tow camper.  Jayco has been dominant in expandables and has come out with several new floorplans and lighter weight models.  We have a huge selection in stock, ready to go for your next camping trip.

Travel trailers with laminated fiberglass construction are lighter than conventional wood construction.  They have walls with an aluminum framework instead of wood.  The walls are a sandwich of fiberglass outer skin, a thin plywood underlayment, thick foam insulation center and the inner paneling.  Lighter weight and resistant to water, they usually cost more than conventional campers.

Apex travel trailers built by Coachmen have taken lightweight one step further.  They have a laminated fiberglass exterior and foam insulation but the layer between the outer fiberglass and the foam insulation is Azdel composite panels instead of plywood.  Azdel panels are thin rigid panels made from a synthetic material that is impervious to water, won’t rot or mold and is extremely light weight.  It cannot delaminate the way the plywood underlayment can when wet.  Costs a little more, but not as much as you might expect. For example, the Apex model 288BH has double over double bunkbeds, private walkaround queen bedroom and outdoor patio kitchen.  It weighs under 5000 lbs. and is selling for under $26,000 during our Anniversary Sale.

SMALL MOTORHOMES –  The pet-friendly Thor A.C.E. class A motorhomes were so popular that we ran out early last summer.  We stocked up this Spring and have more on the way, so we hope we won’t run out this year.  There are several floorplans from 27 to 31 feet, all featuring private bedrooms with walkaround queen beds (or king in one model).  They also have an electric drop-down queen bed over the front living area, which provides a second bed that can be left permanently made up, if you need it.

There are exciting developments in really small, fun-to-drive motorhomes.  Without the height and cabover of a conventional Class C, they are sleek and aerodynamic.  Winnebago’s diesel View has been around for a while.  Their model 24 G has a rear slide-out that makes possible a walk-around queen bed in the rear bedroom.  The new Four Winds Siesta 24 SR has a similar rear slide-out bedroom and is also on a Mercedes Benz Sprinter chassis.

The big news this year is Winnebago’s sleek new Trend Motorhome built on the RAM ProMaster 6 cylinder, front-wheel drive, gasoline chassis.  All the people here at Camp Land that have taken it for a test drive came back with the same report: “It is a joy to drive!”  There are two floorplans, both of which have a queen size electric drop-down bed over the living area.  One model also has a permanent ground level bed in the rear.  If ease of driving is high on your priority list, you should look at the Winnebago Trend.

LARGER MOTORHOMES   Two 35 foot Winnebago models have emerged as leaders among the larger motorhomes.  The bath-and-a-half Vista 35F has created a bit of a sensation.  It has a great master bedroom suite with a large bathroom and another half bath in the living area.

The Sightseer 35G has 3 big slide-outs which allow room for a king size bed and a spectacular living room.  It comes with washer/dryer, LED lighting and all the quality extras you would expect in a Winnebago Sightseer.

GRAND DESIGN 5th WHEELS   The Grand Design family of 5th Wheels are the most exciting new RVs we have seen in many years.  The Grand Design Solitude is an extended stay 5th Wheel that comes in several models. The bedroom is amazing. The Grand Design Reflection is a luxury 5th Wheel that falls in a popular price range.  There are several models to choose from and they sell as fast as we can get them.  The Grand Design Momentum is a top-of-the-line toy hauler available in three different floorplans.  If you are in the market for a 5th Wheel, you must see the Grand Design products.

There are lots of exciting new product developments for you to see during our Anniversary event.  One of the most exciting new things is Jayco’s new option of a fiberglass exterior on their industry leading Jayflight line of travel trailers.  Jayflight was already the # 1 best selling line of aluminum campers in the country, with their sharp interiors and cabinetry.   The optoion of replacing the aluminum skin with fiberglass isn’t terribly costly and you have all the hail resistance and easy cleaning of a laminated fiberglass exterior.  Laminated construction is lighter weight, but if weight isn’t a problem, these Jayflights with the fiberglass exterior are SHARP.

If weight is a serious consideration, a couple of real winners have come to the forefront this year.  Apex by Coachmen is a rising star.  Extremely lightweight because they are not only of laminated fiberglass construction but also use more costly Adzel Composite panels instead of wood paneling.  Surprisingly the overall cost of the Apex trailers is not much more than a conventionally built Apex 288 BHS

fiberglass camper.  Apex also has some innovative floorplans that are HOT.  They were one of the first to introduce double over double bunk beds which are comfortable for adults as well as children.  The Apex 288 BHS is a bunkhouse that weighs under 5,000 lbs. and has created quite a sensation.  It has double over double bunks, a slideout and private queen  bedroom.  The new fiberglass front end cap with LED lighting is a very classy touch.  The only down side is that we have a hard time getting them fast enough during the busy season.

Winnebago Minnie Travel Trailers are all under 5100 lbs. and their colorful exterior fiberglass is striking.  In fact, more colorful exteriors are a trend that is noticeable.  Most are not quite as bright as the Minnie, but grey and beige are becoming more common than plain white.  Winnebago  Ultralite 31 BHDS bunkhouse and the Coleman 297 RE are hot new  floorplans for families and couples respectively

TRAVELING WITH PETS

ACE Motorhome by Thor Motorcoach

A. C. E. The Pet-Friendly Motorhome

Whether your pet is a dog, a cat or a bird, there is no better way to travel  than in a motorhome.  Motels, hotels and airplanes are just not very pet-friendly.  Motorhomes and campgrounds are.  Plenty of room to move around while you are on the road and plenty of outdoor space for excercise when you get there. Some motorhomes are better for pets than others.  The designers at Thor Motorcoach kept pets in mind when they designed the A. C. E. Class A Motorhome. Details like the hideaway pet food dishes, the pet-friendly passenger-side window that also lets the driver see that little car in the blind spot, and the little drawer in the entry step (the perfect place for a flashlight and a leash).  The A. C. E. has all the comforts you would expect for the human members of the familyand a few that other manufacturers didn’t think of.  Like the electric drop-down extra bed above the driver compartment and the out-of-the-way parking spot for shoes just inside the entry door.

Take a look at this  new motorhome that is creating so much excitement.  Your pet will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
