Come Find the Hero in You at our Blood Drive

Texas RV dealer

Since we opened our doors as a Texas RV dealer 10 years ago, thanks to you, we have had the opportunity to grow rapidly. You have responded to our customer service focus, friendly staff as well as our line-up of new and used RVs, and we couldn’t be happier. We love being part of this community, and are pleased to get involved in many worthwhile local projects. The RV lifestyle, after all, is very much hands-on. It’s an activity that directly involves you and becomes a part of who you are.

Those of us at CCRV, your Corpus Christi RV dealer, would like to invite you to be a part of something special. It is the “Find the Hero in You” blood drive that will take place on Saturday, August 17th, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., and again on Sunday, August 18th from noon until 3 p.m. The blood drive will take place at our CCRV location at IH37 and Suntide Road.

Everyone who donates blood during this time will receive a T-shirt and a coupon for Sonic. There will also be a drawings to win CPR kits at the event. These CPR kits are a potentially life-saving tool to have when you are on the road in your RV. If you would like to enter to win one of these kits but can’t make it to the blood drive, we have an online contest that begins August 12th. You can register by going to our CCRV Facebook page.

We are happy to be partnering with KIII Channel 3 along with the Coastal Bend Blood Center in Corpus Christi for this event. We invite you to come out and be a part of it as well. Of course it is also a good time to sneak a peek at our new line-up of 2014 class C motorhomes and travel trailers while you’re here. The important thing though is to get involved and donate blood. It is safe, easy and it will make you feel great. It may even help “Find the Hero in You!” We look forward to seeing you on August 17th or 18th at CCRV!

Visit Camp Verde’s Pecan, Wine, and Antique Festival!

Here at CCRV, we’re always looking for new and fun things for you to do while camping in your new Corpus Christi travel trailer! Camp Verde’s 13th Annual Pecan, Wine, and Antique Festival is definitely something that’s worth checking out during Valentine’s Day weekend. The three day festival begins on Friday, February 15 and continues until Saturday, February 17 in downtown Camp Verde, Arizona.

At this unique festival, there will be different vendors, including wine, food, and antique vendors among general vendors. There will also be live entertainment on an outside stage, with artists such as the Mike McReynolds Band, The Chromatics, and the Sugar Thieves.

Contests will be held, such as the Pecan Nut contest. During this contest, all pecan gardeners will bring 40 pecans to be judged, and the Master Gardner will have a free informational booth at the festival. White Hills Gallery wishes to “highlight the talent of the Verde Valley Artists at their booth by hosting an art show of original works of art in an Agriculture theme” in their art contest.

The admission tickets cost $15.00 each, including your entrance fee, 5 tasting coupons, a commemorative wine glass, and entrance to the Fort Verde State Park! In addition to the state park, there are other attractions, such as Don Bell House, Montezuma Castle, Coconino National Forest, Prescott National Forest, and Out of Africa: Wildlife Park.

So take your loved ones out for a wonderful weekend packed with new and exciting things! Become spectators to or take part in the wonderful contests and entertainment provided by Camp Verde!

Have you ever partaken in a pecan pie contest? 

How To Choose The Right GPS System

 

Navigating through crowded city streets is just as tricky as locating a lonely highway amidst miles of corn fields. Global positioning systems, also known as GPS units, use satellites to pinpoint your current location and regularly updated maps to give you the best directions. Only some of the many GPS units available work well in RVs. Some models offer special features to RV drivers, and one in particular stands out above the rest.

Best Dual System – The Co-Pilot SD Card or PC/Laptop Version

While other GPS units require mounting to the dashboard of your new or used RV, the Co-Pilot software is delivered on a small SD card or disc. You can install it on any satellite-enabled cell phone or computer with wi-fi access. It is designed for large vehicles like RVs and semi-trucks. The maps contain detailed information on height restrictions and traffic patterns, and the unit will warn you if your route contains hazards that you may have trouble passing in a 11 foot tall vehicle.

Best Customizable System – Garmin Nuvi 660

The 6 inch wide screen mounts on your dashboard and allows you to choose from dozens of different map options. Some maps are pre-loaded with destinations relevant to RV travelers, while others contain information on road hazards and weight restrictions. Many full-time RVers request this model from their Texas RV dealer because it allows you to program custom points of interest. If you travel a regular route, you can add in your favorite campgrounds, restaurants and other stops. This speeds up the process of requesting directions to the push of a button.

Best Overall System For RVs – Rand McNally TripMaker RVND 7710

A big 7 inch touchscreen is just one of the benefits offered by this model. This unit asks you to enter details about your RV and your driving preferences, including height, weight, length and your favored turning pattern. It creates completely customized routes based on this information. It also has thousands of sights and stops programmed in to help you create a trip you will never forget.

While all three of these GPS models will help you get to your destination, the TripMaker is the top model for its extra RV-specific features. Any RV you choose from your Corpus Christi RV dealer will work will this model due to its high level of customization.

Take A Look At The 2012 Forest River Work and Play 28FLA

When looking for a new toy hauler at a Texas RV dealer I think you should take a look at the 2012 Forest River Work and Play. This 34-footer sleeps six. It is a utilitarian toy hauler that provides comfort while camping or at the track.

Sit in the shade under the awning when you are not racing or out riding the ATVs, or, if it’s too hot outside, relax inside and let the 15,000 BTU roof air conditioner keep you cool. If you’re muddy from riding the ATVs or doing other outdoor sports, rinse off under the outside shower so you don’t track mud and sand into the toy hauler. You can even listen to the outside speakers while sitting outside. I think you will agree that sitting outside, eating homemade food, and listening to your favorite songs- doesn’t sound like a bad idea!

 

Relax in comfort after a hard day of play.

The living area features a pull down sofa and a dinette — both fold into a bed. The queen bed comes with pillow shams and a bedspread. The toy hauler is set up to run a TV antenna or hook up cable. The rear ramp gate has a screen so that you can keep flies and mosquitoes out of your home away from home while the end is open (this is a very important feature to me and my family- we hate those summer time critters). You have plenty of space for storage in the overhead storage compartments, this is perfect to store all of your guests belongings and some toys for the kids. The galley features a microwave, stove and refrigerator, plus a sink to make cleanup easier.

For power, the Forest River Work and Play has a generator rack and plenty of space for your ATV or motorcycle. For the play part of your trip, listen to the AM/FM radio CD/DVD stereo or watch the 19-inch flat screen television.

To make set up easier, the Forest River Work and Play has four stabilizer jacks, and in the event you suffer a flat tire, a spare tire.

If you ask me this is a great choice. It has everything you need to ride in style AND comfort. You will have plenty of space to keep organized on your vacations. If you have kids traveling with you they will have room to spread out and have fun. If it’s just you and your significant other you both will have room to relax and enjoy your time away from the real world! Come by and see your Corpus Christi RV Dealer today, we can show you this model along with many great others! It will leave you dreaming of that next vacation!

You Won’t Want To Miss This Hail Sale

Now is a great time to save BIG on a brand name RV from CCRV RV. Due to the strong storms that swept through our area late Thursday and early Friday (5-10 &5-11), some of our units suffered hail damage. Every unit that was effected has been carefully inspected to assess the level of damage. All of the damages were deemed to be purely cosmetic and minor. Because of this we have decided to reduce the price on all of the units that were effected. Yes, you heard right!  If you are interested in one of the damaged units you will save a significant amount of money for only cosmetic damages. You will be the new owner of a Texas recreational vehicle that will bring you such great memories and at such a great deal!

Here are a couple of the models that were effected and are now on sale here at CCRV. As you can see, the damage is very hard to notice and purely of a cosmetic nature.

 Aside from saving BIG on small hail damages, here are some other reasons why now is a great time to purchase a new RV :

  1. It is the start of summer- that means you will likely be looking for the most cost efficient way to take a vacation in the coming months. According to fabuloustravel.com nearly 90% of RV owners surveyed recently agreed “for low cost vacations, there’s little to beat an RV.”
  2. When you purchase an RV, you have the ability to travel at a moments notice. If something arises, like say a fun festival or a discount comes up on that RV resort you’ve had your eye, you have the ability to grab your travel group and hit the road!
  3. Memorial Day & July 4th holidays are coming up QUICK! These will be great days to celebrate out on the road. With an RV, you have the comfort of your own kitchen, living room, dining room, and patio. You will feel like home celebrating in your own space. An RV becomes far more comfortable than any hotel because you have the ability to make it feel like h-o-m-e!
  4. Thinking about taking a summer fishing trip? There is NO easier way to do this than with an RV. It makes it easy to pile up  your group, your poles and lures, and head out to whatever lake your heart desires! You can even hop from lake to lake quickly and at a much lower price than without an RV. I will say this is one of my favorite things about my RV. I can easily take my family or friends out and it doesn’t burn a hole through my wallet.
  5. Is your significant other or your kids dying to head to the beach this summer? With your new RV you can simply pack up your beach gear and some food to grill and you are ready to  hit the road.

I think you will agree it’s a great time to buy an RV! Why not take advantage of our hail sale and save big on your purchase! Come by today because these units are moving quick! If you want to contact us to see whether we still have models in this sale, call us at (361) 289-5400.

2012 Forest River Cedar Creek 36RD

When considering purchasing a fifth wheel travel trailer from a Texas RV dealer, you must take several things into consideration, including the number of people you are traveling with.

All you Should Know about Starcraft RVs

Starcraft Trailers have been around for a long time. Actually, 100 years long. They are a stable company that will be around for many more years to come.

I thought we could talk a little bit about the different Starcraft trailers that are out on the lot right now.

Strong RV fifth wheels and trailers sales are expected in 2012

ccrv tx rv dealerThis year may very well be the year of the towable RV. The improving economy and loosening credit guidelines make 2012 the year to finally purchase the trailer or fifth wheel you’ve always wanted. Even though it’s only February, we are seeing increased sales at CCRV, our TX RV dealership.

The cost-effectiveness of RV travel is proving particularly attractive to families looking for affordable vacations. There are no airplane flights to book, no hotels to reserve, just you and your pop-up trailer or fifth wheel. Young families appreciate the ease of RV vacations. They usually buy their first RV as a smaller trailer or towable, then trade in for a larger RV as their families grow up.

Towable RVs are being manufactured with light weight materials that make them easy to pull with the family SUV. Since fuel economy is important, these lighter weight trailers are a welcome sight for new owners.

So new owners are looking for RVs that are smaller, lighter, and less expensive.

There are some other trends that are becoming more important this year in the RV industry.

  1. Energy efficiency. To minimize energy consumption, the RV industry has adapted a number of the green-construction practices used in the housing industry to the production of motorhomes and travel trailers. Installation of Energy Star appliances is now standard on motorhomes and travel trailers, and new models feature LED lighting.
  2. Environmental impact. RV manufacturers are including more sustainable materials both in core construction and interior features, including bamboo flooring, recycled glass tiles, paperstone countertops, wheatboard, hemp and coconut shells. [RVT]
This should give you a good idea of what the RV nation likes in their RVs right now. You will find a good representation of all of these trends and more at CCRV.
