But there is also a surge in current RVers changing their minds, and wanting to trade used vehicles for something new.

That’s where PPL Motorhomes comes in. PPL is the largest RV consignment dealership in the U.S. with three locations, Houston, Cleburne (DFW) and New Braunfels. The business showcases over 700 consigned motorhomes, travel trailers and fifth-wheels for sale by private owners.

If you’re trying to sell your motorhome, travel trailer or fifth-wheel and are experiencing the frustration of potential buyers not showing up and deals falling through, come to PPL. They will help you sell your used vehicle or orchestrate a fair trade.

Young RVers Take Up the RV Lifestyle

Posted on: April 7th, 2015 by admin No Comments

TrailerPeople may be hesitant to embark in the RV lifestyle because of their age. Feeling too young, many people shy away from the fun, exciting experience RVing has to offer. But the RV industry is open to all ages, and doesn’t exclude younger generations.

RVing has changed over the years, and now RVers are becoming more active. RV parks have begun to incorporate gyms, walking trails and fitness classes into their campgrounds to embrace this change. You’ll often find bike rental stations at RV parks, and with plenty of scenic views and trails, young RVers will have fun exploring the great outdoors.

Statistics show that the fastest-growing group of RV owners is 35 – 44 years old. This is good news for RV parks, as young RVers often spend more on the experience rather than goods. Young travelers take frequent trips and often return to parks. This new surge in younger RV owners has boosted sales for RV parks and campgrounds all around the country.

Are the great outdoors calling your name? Texas Campgrounds is a group of over 400 different RV resorts and campgrounds in the great Lonestar state. With parks offering everything from spacious pull-thru RV sites to fully furnished park model homes, there is a solution for every kind of camper, no matter where you want to go.

Cabins and park models have been receiving a lot of attention lately, with their unique advantages and amenities. If you’re tired of noisy hotel neighbors, kids running down the halls, and not having a sense of peace, consider staying in a park model at one of TACO’s campgrounds. Park models and cabins are usually fully furnished with amenities like cable, Wi-Fi and access to pools and entertainment areas.

With a park model, you’ll have your own unit and your own space to unwind and relax for the weekend, or even the month. Park models are a great solution for campers who don’t yet own an RV, but want to enjoy the experience of camping with friends and family members who do. And if you’re thinking about purchasing an RV, consider staying in a park model for a few months to get a feel of the experience. Ultimately, if RVing is not for you, some parks sell lots and units so guests can enjoy a permanent vacation home.

No matter where you are in your camping experience, TACO has a solution for you. Stop by the Texas Campgrounds website to enter your name into a monthly drawing to win a $100 Valero gift card, and to find more information about your next camping destination.
