Daytrippin’ Texas App and Website Is A Great Resource

One of the great things about being in the RV industry and lifestyle is all of the really great opportunities to meet really creative people. My friend, Kiki Neumann, is one of those people. If you’ve ever been to PPL Motorhomes and looked inside my office, you may have notices the wonderful license plate art I have in there. Those came from her great imagination and artistic ability to turn your everyday license plate into unique art. So when she wrote me about a great web site and app created by friends of hers I had to listen. Below you will find excerpts from the letter she sent me urging me to check out a really unique and helpful idea. Let me tell you…I LOVE THIS IDEA!

Diana,

I wanted to share this because you are so good at networking to RVers. I have some friends doing a wonderful website and app for the iPhone/smartphone for folks who do “day trips”  across Texas.

Daytrippin’ Texas

I thought I would tell you about them so you might consider mentioning them on your blog (RV Nana or PPL Motorhomes)  for folks who are traveling  throughout Texas. They are uncovering unique stores, events and specialty  places like farms or nature centers. It would be value added to when an RVer visits a place to see what is nearby currently and not from a guide or magazine published a year ago. They keep it fresh and it is helpful in real time to find out what’s going on while traveling.

Here is the website and they have a Facebook page also….

Kind regards…..Onwards,

Kiki

Thank you Kiki for the suggestion. I know that I’ll be visiting the Daytrippin’ Texas website often! Plus, folk, I highly suggest you go ahead and check out Kiki’s really cool art at Kiki Neumann Creations. Her stuff looks great in home, office and RV!

Can People Ride In A Travel Trailer Or Fifth-Wheel While On the Road

We take in consignment RVs all of the time and one of the questions that first time travel trailer and fifth-wheel owners ask is, “Can people ride in a travel trailer, or fifth-wheel while on the road?”  Let me go on record by saying that I don’t recommend it. There are too many variables that can make riding in an RV that is being towed unstable and dangerous. In fact, most states make it against the law to ride in an RV being towed, Texas is one of those states.

Here’s a good reason not to:

When traveling with a towable, you are going to be safer riding in the vehicle that is doing the towing, that’s just fact. If you are are traveling through a state that allows you to travel while your trailer is being pulled, just be extra careful…and you may want to watch this movie first.
If you have any questions about consignment RVs in Houston, be sure to give RV Nana a call at PPL Motorhomes. I know that we’ll have the right RV for you and your family.
