We happened to be window shopping when we ran across a store that sold Purple mattresses. We have heard a lot of good things about these mattresses and thought we’d give it a try. While talking to the store manager about the Purple mattress, he asked about mattresses we have owned in the past. I looked around the store and noticed that he sold Denver mattresses as well here, so I answered we have a Denver mattress at home. We actually did. We liked the Denver mattress in the beginning …

After having a Keyless Door Lock on our previous RV, we were sad to discover that this was not an option on our new trailer. You may not think this is much of a necessity, but until you have one you won’t know how much of a convenience it really is. We all need to think about security a bit more these days.

Our new RV came equipped with a rear camera mount. The mount was preinstalled at the factory and was provided to the manufacturer by Furrion. The Furrion Vision 2 FOS48TA-BL or a Furrion Vision 1 FRC12TAPK-BL can be easily installed to this mount in just a few minutes. We chose to purchase a Furrion Vision 2 because of its advanced features over the Vision 1 FRC12TAPK-BL. We have also heard quite a few good things about the TadiBrothers cameras. So we decided to check it out as well. There are a lot of …
