Review: 2017 Coachmen Mirada 35LS

The main purpose of motor home is to get you to the place you need to go and provide you some comfort when you’re there. A quality coach, on the other hand, should be no different from any other home. That is, it should be a place where you feel comfortable to hang your hat, whether it’s for a night or for a year. With the exquisite features both inside and outside the 2017 Coachmen Mirada 35LS, you’ll have no problem calling this coach your home.

Relax in the Comfort of Home

The beauty of a motor home is that you can pack up to head upstate or even across the country. Yet, no matter where your journey takes you, you’ll always be home in the Mirada 35LS. However, what’s a home without comfort? In the living area, relax on the L-shape sofa lounge while the fireplace blazes in the background. Or, catch the latest game on a 32-inch TV from the comfort of your queen-sized bed.

Without a doubt, a good home needs a good kitchen. The Mirada features all stainless steal appliances, including a double-door refrigerator with eight cubic feet of space, a three-burner range, a microwave oven, and a pull-out pantry. That way, there’ll be no need to worry about relying on takeout or questionable campground meals. Instead, your neighbors will be coming to you for a quality, home-cooked meal.

An Easy Drive

Feeling comfortable in your motor home is only half of the equation. After all, the thing has to get you from one place to another, too. At 320 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, running on a Ford V-10, that place can be just about anywhere.

Of course, driving isn’t all about brute strength. The Mirada also has finesse and goes out of its way to harness that power into something that’s easy for the driver to control. For instance, parking is made a cinch with a back-up monitor and cameras. Cruise control and swivel seats ensure that the drive will a comfortable one. Your copilot, too, will find it an easy journey thanks to the computer work station built into the passenger seating area.

Keeping Your Home Protected

Unexpected events–intended or not–happen. Rather than just cross your fingers and hope that something bad never occurs, it’s always best to be prepared for any unlikely happening. In the Mirada, you can sleep easy knowing that your home is protected and ready to alert you in case of danger.

Standard in the Mirada, you can find a propane leak alarm, a smoke detector, a carbon monoxide detector, and a fire extinguisher. Plus, with a deadbolt lock on the motor home door, you won’t have to worry about unexpected guests. Above all, the safety of you and your family is what’s important, and with the Mirada, you’ll be in good hands.

Whether you’re on the road or you’re calling it quits for the night, you’ll feel at ease in the Mirada 35LS. With the memories you’ll be making in your 35LS, you won’t hesitate to think of it as more than simply a vehicle – it’ll be your home on wheels.

The Best Sporting Events to Tailgate With Your Motor Home

Owning a motor home doesn’t have to be all about travelling the country and staying at campgrounds. If you’re a sports fan, a motor home can also serve as a headquarters for some fun before-game festivities. Bringing a motor home to the stadium isn’t all that rare of an occurrence, but some sports are more welcoming for your coach than others. If you’ve got an itch to do something a little different with your motor home, consider hitting up one of these sports events.

College Football Games

Ah, the college football game: the natural habitat for tailgating. Whether you’re supporting your alma mater or you’re simply going to root for your area college’s football team, finding tailgating opportunities should be pretty easy. They’re fairly common amongst colleges, even the lesser-known ones. And don’t expect the parking lots to be full of students, either – many pre-game tailgating events attract people of all ages.

Although college games are some of the most common sites for tailgating, you’ll want to check ahead of time to make sure that the stadium does in fact accommodate tailgating and whether you’ll be allowed to bring your motor home. If you want to go local, it’s a good idea to go there ahead of time and scope out the lay of the land yourself to see if there’s a good tailgating culture and how accepting it is of motor homes.

Tailgating-min

Baseball: America’s Favorite Pastime

While football might be America’s most watched (and most tailgated) sport, baseball still holds a special place in many sports fans’ hearts. You might have a harder time finding tailgating events for baseball games than football matches, but they’re out there if you’re willing to do a little looking.

Similar to the college stadiums, you’ll want to make sure that you can bring your motor home to the baseball fields, as not all stadiums are made for tailgating. Wrigley Field in Chicago, for example, doesn’t have a centralized parking lot near the stadium; instead, fans park far away and take public transportation to get to the field, celebrating in nearby bars instead of in a tailgating atmosphere. As always, be prepared!

Indianapolis 500

The Indy 500 doesn’t just allow tailgating–specifically with motor homes–it encourages it. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has multiple lots for motor home parking and allows for overnight camping, so you can assure you’ll be there in time for the race. You can find more information about camping on the Indy 500 website.

As the Indy 500 is the biggest American racing event of the year, tickets might be a little out of your comfort price range. It’s worth keeping in mind that racing stadiums around the country similarly allow motor home parking and tailgating. While you won’t get to see the pros in person, they’ll still be going so fast that you won’t be able to tell the difference.

We don’t usually think of sports game as a motor home destination, but tailgating with your coach can be a great way to have some fun and meet other fans before the game. It’s certainly a step up from watching the game on TV at home!

The Best 4th of July Fireworks Displays in the Country

What’s Independence Day without some awesome fireworks to cap off a day of celebrating our nation’s birthday? While you can find a fireworks display in almost every city across America, you might have to do a little travelling if you want to see the best in the country. If you don’t mind a little road trip this summer, consider hitting up one of these amazing fireworks displays on the Fourth of July.

Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks in New York City

If you’re looking for the biggest fireworks display in America, you’re going to have to head to the biggest city in America. And who better to trust than the company with a stellar track record of putting on the most impressive holidays displays throughout the year – Macy’s, who has been holding the fireworks display for four decades. Along with the colorful half-hour display, you can expect to see some big name performers on stage during the event.

The Macy’s fireworks display, happening over the Big Apple’s East River, is bound to be packed with attendees, and obviously, you aren’t going to do well bringing your motor home into the city. If you need a place to park, check out the well-reviewed Liberty Harbor park, which is close to transportation to the city. Or, if you don’t feel like beating the crowds, you can simply tune in on TV, where the show will be broadcast live.

Fireworks

National Mall Fourth of July Celebration in Washington, D.C.

At 17-and-a-half minutes long, the fireworks display put on by the National Park Service in Washington, D.C., isn’t the longest display, but it is perhaps the most appropriate one. There’s nothing as appropriate as celebrating the birth of the United States in its capital, after all. The fireworks are set off from the reflecting pool area and can be seen throughout the D.C. area.

If you feel like witnessing what could be the most distilled display of patriotism in the country, your best bet might be to set up camp at Cherry Hill Park, which labels itself as the closest campground to Washington, D.C. Public transportation reaches the campsite multiple times a day, so you won’t have to worry about missing out on the fireworks.

Lights on the Lake in Lake Tahoe, California

Summer is the season for beach fun, so take your Fourth of July celebrations to the water in Lake Tahoe for the annual Lights on the Lake celebration. No boat? No problem. You can buy a seat on many of the ships that will be offering their services for the night for an up-close view of the proceedings. And if you’re more of a landlubber, you can watch from the shore, too.

Due to Lake Tahoe’s rural geography, there are many campsites surrounding the lake. Among the most popular are Tahoe Valley and Camp Richardson, though there are plenty others you can find by doing some quick research. Despite the amount of campgrounds, however, you’ll want to book soon as you can, as they’ll be sure to fill up fast for the holiday.

These professional-grade fireworks displays will surely light up the night in ways you haven’t quite seen before, and they’re held in wonderful locations that are already worth checking out on their own. As if you needed an excuse for another road trip!

City Highlight: Omaha, Nebraska

When you picture an ideal motor home trip, what destinations do you think of? Things like the amazing vistas of the Grand Canyon or the redwoods of Northern California might spring to mind. But what about Nebraska?

Omaha, Nebraska might not get major play as a travel spot, but with its cultured events, vibrant city life, and green space, there’s quite a lot to love. Whether Omaha is a just a stop on your journey or the destination itself, it’s a great place to check out on your adventure.

Get Cultured With Music, Museums, and Theater

You might not think it, but Omaha is a hotbed for cultural institutes relating to all facets of American life. Home to multiple art museums, a space museum, and a museum devoted to the Union Pacific railroad, there’s a lot to learn no matter what your interests. Of note, Omaha also has one of America’s only Latino-focused museums.

If music’s more of your thing, there are quite a few places worth checking out, from big auditoriums that get the major touring acts to small venues that host less-known musicians. And with multiple theaters in Omaha, you can catch any type of show no matter your tastes.

Omaha-Nebraska

Relax at the Park

With so much to do, you’re bound to wear yourself out. When you get tired of poking around the city, take a rest at any of its number of well-kept parks. At the heart of downtown is the Heartland of America Park, which centers around an idyllic man-made lake with fountains and even boat rides.

Of course, spending some time at the park doesn’t have to be eventless. Throughout the summer, you can find Jazz in the Park at Turner Park, located on the west side of downtown. There’s also Shakespeare on the Green, held at Elmwood Park, near the University of Nebraska Omaha campus, throughout the summer. Both ongoing events are free to the public.

A River Runs Through It

One notable aspect of Omaha’s geography is that the Mississippi River cuts through it. Just east of downtown, the river serves as the border between Nebraska and neighboring state Iowa. On the river, you can find more green space, including Lewis and Clark Landing. If you’re up for a history lesson, the park is full of exhibits that teach visitors about the famous explorers. Otherwise, feel free to take a walk down the riverfront pier.

Motor Home Friendly

Luckily for you, there are a few options for camping with your motorhome just outside Omaha. Closest to downtown is N.P. Dodge Park, which offers you a place to park your motorhome and has trails for biking and walking. Just about as close to downtown is Glenn Cunningham Lake, which offers plenty of activities both in and out of the water. Here, you can go hiking, biking, boating, and even horseback riding.

A little farther from town, in neighboring city Elkhorn, there’s RiverWest Park, situated on the Elkhorn River. Here, you can tube down the river or participate in many of the outdoor events that the park hosts. Finally, about half an hour outside Omaha is the Pine Grove campgrounds, which is centered ideally between Omaha and Lincoln, if you’re interested in checking out that city as well.

Between the attractions of downtown Omaha and the natural features both in the city and surrounding it, there’s a lot to see, a lot to do, and a lot to enjoy. You might just find yourself staying longer than expected!

Review: 2016 Forest River Berkshire 38B

When you’re looking into buying a luxury motor home, you expect only the most quality amenities. Most luxury coaches are fitted with full-feature kitchens, comfy sofas, extensive driver controls, and all the technical features you require to make your adventures run smoothly. The 2016 Forest River Berkshire 38B certainly has all of that, but what makes it special is just how homey it really is. With a superior build, spacious interior, and full-featured entertainment system, the Berkshire is home on wheels.

A Build You Can Trust

Forest River is no stranger to the motor home industry, and they’ve produced quality coach after quality coach for decades. Much of their success comes from their manufacturing process. Everything takes place within one facility, meaning all of the finest materials are brought together under one roof, each rig being carefully inspected during the manufacture process.

The Berkshire is sturdy from the floor to the ceiling, built with a Freightliner XC-R chassis and upfitted with a MORryde Tru-Brace reinforced frame. The result is a strong rig with an impressive performance on the road. With a Forest River coach, you can expect only utmost, tried-and-true quality.

All the Space You Need

The freedom of the road means nothing if you’re cramped the entire time of your journey – nothing can ruin a trip like not having the space you need to create wonderful memories. With the Berkshire 38B, you can put these fears aside, as the coach has not one, not two, but three slideouts. Talk about room to stretch your legs!

The roominess extends to all parts of the motor home, especially the master bathroom, which includes a fiberglass shower with glass door, a closet, his and her sinks, and a porcelain toilet. Of course, you’re going to want space for all your precious cargo, both above and below deck. Ride in ease knowing that your gear–easily packed away with pass-through storage–is protected by the rig’s steel basement structure.

Fun… Inside and Out

When it comes to entertaining guests or just having a relaxing night in, the Berkshire has all the interior features that you’d expect of a truly top-of-the-line motor home. A television in the living room, a television in the bedroom, and a Bluetooth-enabled soundbar allow everyone the entertainment they want.

But what really sets the Berkshire apart from its competitors is its exterior features. How many motor homes do you know that offer an outside entertainment system? Catch the latest game on a 32-inch HDTV installed in the exterior sidewall while enjoying the great outdoors at the same time. Or, plug your own tunes into the stereo as you take in your new surroundings under the shade of the Berkshire’s 18-foot exterior awning.

Home is where the heart is, and the Berkshire has plenty of that. Whether you’re fully secure as you guide the coach along your journey, or you’re kicking back and putting your feet up after a long drive, you won’t need to close your eyes to imagine that you’re home – you will be home.

The Best Ways to Save Money on Gas When Road Tripping in Your Motor Home

You know the joys of road tripping with your motor home: the great sights, the open road, the people you meet. But with all the wonderful things you might experience on your road trip, there’s also one less exciting aspect – paying for fuel. It’s no secret that as much joy a motor home can bring you, it’s going to need a lot of gas. If you’re trying to cut back on expenses, there are a few ways you can limit what you pay at the pump.

Go for the Lesser Price at the Tank

While choosing to fuel up at the gas station that has the lowest prices sounds like a no-brainer, there might be times when you’re tempted to pull into a station that is a little more convenient. Perhaps it’s right off the highway or on the same side of the road that you are. However, a small difference in prices, even if it’s by a few cents, can add up to be more than you first think. Since your motor home’s tank is larger than any other vehicle’s, that price difference is multiplied many more times. Even a difference of a few cents per gallon can add up to be a few dollars if you’re filling up. You won’t save millions by being smarter in choosing you gas station, but it will help you save regardless.

Man-Counting-Money

Use an App

There are a few different smartphone apps that can help you find the gas stations with the cheapest fuel. Of these, GasBuddy is one of the most popular. Users submit the fuel prices they see as they pass by gas stations, so all you have to do is search nearby for the cheapest price. Plus, the prices are usually up to date within the day. Waze is another app that’s quite well-regarded with drivers. While Waze functions mostly as a navigational app, it also includes a gas prices feature, as well as traffic reports and road closure information. Keep in mind that you can also save money on gas by taking the shortest route, which is something that a paper roadmap or outdated GPS system won’t be able to give you.

Join a Loyalty Program

Some gas station companies have loyalty programs that offer you discounts on your fuel or in-store purchases. Some even give you a bonus just for signing up. While it’s hard to argue with free money, it’s worth noting that the gas stations you enroll with might not have locations wherever you’re travelling to. But since these memberships are free to join, there’s really no cost to sign up, so you might as well. You could even sign up for all the programs you can possibly can, just to have your bases covered.

Keep Your Motor Home Up to Spec

For safety reasons, you should always inspect your motor home before taking a trip, so there’s a good chance you’ll have caught all the major issues before you even hit the road. Still, you should remember that if your motor home is a few years old or it’s suffered through a particularly bad winter, it might be worth it to get the engine checked out. An engine that runs inefficiently equals wasted fuel. You should also keep an eye on your tires to ensure that they’re properly inflated, as even a slightly deflated tire can affect your fuel economy.

When travelling with your motor home, it just takes a few well-thought decisions to make some nice savings. Although each of these tips will save you just a little money, it’ll be a nice chunk of change when added up. And with the money you save, perhaps you can even justify a longer trip!

City Highlight: Tucson, Arizona

There’s a lot to like about Tucson. It’s got warm weather year-round, sometimes reaching up into the 100s during the summer. There are tons of impressive vistas to take in. It’s lively and full of culture and history. And, it’s motorhome-friendly! If you’re thinking about making a stop in the so-called Old Pueblo, here’s what you can expect to see.

Natural Attractions

Located in the Sonoran Desert, Tucson is packed full of amazing natural sights. To the east of downtown Tucson is Saguaro National Park, named after the distinctive cactus that is popular in the area. If you’re interested in a little stargazing, the Kitt Peak National Observatory, west of Tucson, has the largest collection of optical and radio telescopes in the world and offers many daytime and nighttime activities.

Understanding the Southwest

To learn what makes Tucson tick, you can visit one its many museums and art galleries. The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum offers insight into the biology of the area and even features a zoo and botanical garden. Of course, there’s a lot more to Tucson than its ecology. Due to a long history and its proximity in the Southwestern United States, Tucson offers an interesting blend of native, Spanish, and American culture. To learn more, considering paying a visit to the Arizona State Museum.

History of the Old West

More recently in Arizona’s history, it was the site of settlers making their way west. Tombstone, the famous settler town, is about an hour’s drive away from Tucson and well worth the visit if you’re curious to see the actual sights that are now famous. That said, Tucson still has some interesting sights to see if you’re interested in this period of American history. The most notable attraction is Old Tucson Studios, the site of many famous Western films such as “Tombstone” and “Gunfight at the OK Corral.” Nowadays, the movie studio also serves as an interactive theme park, where you and your family can learn more about Old West history and even dress the part with costumes.

Motor Home Resorts

Luckily for you, there are plenty of resorts to call home while visiting Tucson. Of note is the Lazydays KOA, located just south of Tucson. While you can expect all the typical amenities of a great motor home park here, what sets Lazydays apart from others is its two acres of solar panel parasols, which allows visitors to park in shade that doubles as a clean energy source for the campgrounds. If you’d rather be a little more centrally located, Sentinel Park is another highly-rated motor home resort. With access to the Tucson light rail that passes through the park, Sential Park claims to have more than 300 restaurants, shops, and attractions within three minutes of travel.

With interesting culture, history, and nature, along with the modern conveniences of a large city, Tucson makes for an ideal vacation spot. No matter what you and your family’s fancy is, you’re all bound to find something interesting in the sunlight of Tucson. Just remember to bring sunscreen!

Review: 2016 American Coach American Dream 45T

Take just one step into American Coach’s flagship and you’ll realize that the American Dream isn’t necessarily about having a nice house and a white picket fence–it’s the ability to be independent and provide your family with the best that life has to offer. That’s what you get with the American Dream 45T, the top of American Coach’s line of motor homes, a quality coach that strikes the perfect balance between comfort and performance.

The Comforts of Home

Comfort: It’s the difference between a home and any old place you can rest your head at night. The comforts of the American Dream can be found from the very front of the coach all the way to the back. From the driver’s seat, you’ve got dual screen monitors and adjustable brakes and throttles to give you complete control of your journey. Of course, the comfort extends beyond the driver’s seat. Two ultraleather sofas allow for the relaxation of home, and with a king-sized bed and additional air mattress, there’ll be no issue sleeping a group of people. Plus, with a max interior height of seven feet and dedicated master bathroom, you’ll have all the space you could ever need.

Built for Entertaining

Everyone knows that it’s the journey, not the destination, that matters, and the American Dream isn’t going to be holding anyone back from having fun on their ride. When you’ve grown tired of viewing a Blu-Ray on the built-in HDTV, take in all the passing natural scenery through one of the Dream’s large passenger windows. Play host or hostess for your residents or guests by cooking a quality meal with the electric cooktop and convection microwave oven. Or, take a load off while resting in front the Dream’s electric fireplace.

Good Design, Engineered for a Great Adventure

Of course, it’s one thing to have a lot of great features, but it’s another thing to pull them together usefully. Fear not, as the American Dream experience is nothing short of luxurious, with a full tile floor, hardwood cabinets, and a polished countertop. Along with other wonderful features like dimmer switch lighting, a shower skylight, and an in-unit washer and dryer, the Dream is an exercise in pure quality. You’d have a hard time finding this level of quality craftsmanship anywhere else.

Heavy Duty Power

Don’t let the quality interior experience of the American Dream fool you: she’s ready for the road, too. The 45T, the largest of American Coach’s Dream fleet, runs on a 600 horsepower engine, so you’ll have no problem getting wherever you need to go. And with a hitch rating weight of 15 thousand pounds, you can easily tow along your vehicle or trailer with no need for worry. Harness that power with peace of mind, as the Dream comes equipped with all the safety precautions you’d expect: side docking lamps, scare lights, a smoke and carbon monoxide detector, a fire extinguisher, and more.

As they say, if you’re going to do something, you might as well do it right. With American Coach’s American Dream 45T, you could certainly be doing it worse. In this top-of-the-line motor home, you won’t just be cruising the road in style and comfort–you’ll be living the dream.

How Motor Home Technology Has Changed Over the Years

Due to the wonders of modern technology, today’s motor homes are the best they’ve ever been. A quality motor home is safe, convenient, and has all the comforts you could ever need. However, it wasn’t always like this. The motor homes of yesteryear were quite different from what you may be used to, and it can be fun – and educational – to take a look back at how motor home technology has changed over the years.

Before Motor Homes

Perhaps unsurprisingly, motor homes share a common history with other motorized vehicles, such as cars and trucks. The very roots of motor homes can be found in the times before combustible engines, when people travelled by horse-drawn caravans. This was before air conditioning, pull-out beds, and potable water tanks. While the buggies of old are far removed from today’s luxury motor homes, you can draw one major similarity: the old wagons provided a safe home for people making long journeys. Sound familiar?

The First Motor Homes

It’s a little difficult to declare the first motor home, as that term didn’t really catch on until the mid-20th century, but the vehicle that many point to as the first modern ancestor was the Pierce-Arrow Touring Landau. The Touring Landau, which was first shown at Madison Square Garden in 1910, didn’t look like what you would consider a modern motor home: it was small, a little cramped, and in all honesty, nearly indistinguishable from the other vehicles of that era.

However, there were some important differences that set it apart from the Model T. It had a chamber pot toilet, pressurized sink, and fold-down bed, marketed specifically for the traveler. While the Touring Landau was clearly a vehicle of its time with some added amenities built in, it sowed the seeds for today’s motor homes.

Motor-Home-Interior

Motor Homes Hit Their Stride

The early 20th century was a tough time for motor homes. First, there was the Great Depression, and then there were two World Wars. People simply didn’t have the time or the money for any motor home fun. But during the post-war boom of the 1950s, motor homes faced a reversal of fortune. People now had disposable income and time to vacation with their families.

Winnebago launched in 1958 and within 10 years they were mass producing motor homes that were much more affordable. The motor home company helped pitch their motor homes by selling the idea of “Thermo-Panel” walls, which kept heat inside the home. So, instead of setting up a tent outside, motor home families were encouraged to make their camp indoors, which was an important distinction. Other manufacturers of the time, such as Travco, pushed other innovations, such as the use of fiberglass in motor homes.

Massive Technological Advancements

Since the boom of the mid-1900s, motor home manufacturers have slowly and steadily introduced new technologies to their products, in line with technological advancements in other industries. With the invention of radio and television came sound systems and TVs in motor homes, and so on and so forth.

But these new technologies aren’t just for interior comforts. Throughout the years, engineers have pioneered new aerodynamic designs that make motor homes easier to drive and safer on the roads. And with the rise of computers and the internet in the past few decades, we’re seeing some exciting new applications, including the ability to wirelessly control some features via smartphone.

It’s been a long road from the horse-drawn buggies and Touring Landaus of the past. While today’s motor homes are a far cry from their ancestors, understanding their history allows for a greater appreciation of how good we have it now. Be glad for the technologies we have, but also be excited for the new ones to come.

Improving the Security of Your Motor Home

There’s no question that your motor home is a big investment. And it’s not just the monetary investment, either – you spend a lot of time and care into making it not just a comfortable vehicle, but also a home for you and your family. Just as you should be concerned for the security of your house or apartment, you should also think about the security of your home on wheels. Here are some tips for improving the security of your motor home.

Check All Possible Entrance Points

When making the effort to improve your motorhome’s security, the first thing you should do is take a look at it from a thief’s perspective. If you wanted to break in, how would you do it? The doors and windows will be the first point of entry for criminals, so be sure that these entry points are always shut and locked securely. If your motor home has a sunroof, don’t forget that this can be a way in as well; all a thief would have to do is climb up to the roof to get in.

Consider an Alarm System

Despite your best intentions, someone who is determined enough to break in may still find a way. That’s why it would pay off for you to install an alarm system in your motor home. While alarm system features vary, most operate just like a home security system does – that is, they set off a loud alarm when your home is broken into. Many alarm systems these days can also notify you by phone that something has tripped the alarm, so you can feel comfort no matter how far away you are from your motor home.

Install a Wheel Lock

While you’ll want to keep the possessions within your motor home secure, you’ll also want to secure the motor home itself from being stolen. Steering wheel locks are fairly inexpensive, and they’re especially worth it for the peace of mind. You shouldn’t have to worry about buying a wheel lock specifically designed for a motor home, as these locks are usually made for any type of vehicle. However, you should make sure that the lock you choose fits the dimensions of your steering wheel.

Motorhome-Wheel-Lock

Take Preventative Precautions

While your motor home might make for a good-looking target for thieves, you can at least make it look less appealing to further offset any chances of a break-in. Try not to keep any expensive items unattended and in sight, whether they’re inside or outside your home. When you’re away and at night, keeping the shades drawn should also deter any crooks.

Use GPS As a Backup

As a last resort, you can use a GPS tracker to help you and the authorities find your motorhome if it’s been stolen. There are some decent GPS trackers available from companies such as LoJack and Spy Tec, though these can be a little pricey. Iif you don’t want to pony up for a dedicated GPS tracker, you might get away with using a tracking app installed on a spare tablet or phone that you keep in your motor home.

Following these security precautions will lower the risk of something bad happening to your motor home, but you should always be prepared for the worst. In many cases, you’ll be protected by your insurance policy, so speak with your insurance company to understand what’s covered and what isn’t. They may also be able to help you further secure your motor home.
