Gone are the days that camping means having to truly rough it—unless one wants to do so!
The popular trend of “glamping” is much more than a nice tent. Glamping encompasses various types of accommodation experiences, such as cabins, villas, lodges, teepees and tree houses. It also includes recreational vehicles tailored to specifications of each buyer or renter.
“RVs are more affordable than most people think they are. And with Missouri’s state park system, there are tons of places to stay and lots to see right within a couple hours of St. Louis,” says Randy Starky, Midwest RV Center sales manager for St. Louis.
Because Randy’s family has camped since he was 4 years old, he knows the ins and outs of RVs firsthand and has worked in the RV industry for the past 16 years.
Midwest RV Center offers varied selections: motorhomes, popups, hybrids, travel trailers, fifth wheels and toy haulers. The best choice depends on lifestyles, family size, the length of desired trips and storage, Randy says.
With so many RV options, Randy recommends potential buyers complete market research and then have a thorough “kitchen table discussion,” during which budgets, storage alternatives and hauling decisions get hammered out.
He says some of the newest RV glamping options are power awnings, outdoor kitchens, automatic level jacks, touchpad commands with smart apps, and solar backup for battery charging when dry camping.
RV campers don’t even have to obsess about trip-interrupting maintenance issues, with Midwest RV being one of the 150 U.S. and Canadian dealers participating in the Route 66 RV network. Route 66 club members get 24/7 roadside assistance and technical support, parts discounts, accessories, special KOA pricing and priority service.
