Camping Safety Tips Keep RVers Safe

The horrific flash flood that ripped through a remote Arkansas campground, claiming the lives of 19 campers, brought home the unpredictability of nature.  Families camping at the remote Albert Pike Recreation Area certainly didn't expect to be fighting for their lives when they parked their RVs for the weekend.  When tragedy struck in the middle of the night, most campers were sleeping, unaware of the flash flood warning issued at 2 a.m... >> Continue to full article

"Sold the camper in 3 hrs!!  Had over 10 calls.  Someone in Virginia bought it!  They drove up the next day and drove it home!  The photo's did the trick! Plus the best thing I could have done was put it in the highlighted section... Thank You!"

       - C. Jolls from Rhode Island, June 7


"Our travel trailer is sold, thanks to your site.  Thank you for the opportunity of paying once and leaving our RV on until it sold. In this economy, it takes longer to sell, and we probably would have given up before finding a buyer without this service.  Also, we found and purchased the perfect one for us right here!  Your site is awesome!"

          - B. Jordan from North Carolina, June 15

"Thank you, we had our ad in several publications, and we sold it through RVT.com.  Your $99 until sold price is great.  Our truck camper, was vehicle specific, and took a little time to sell, so that option was perfect for us.  We would surely use you again, Thank you for a great service."

          - R. Raffile from Maine, June 20
