What is a Travel Trailer?

A Travel Trailer is probably one of the most flexible and versatile RVs in the marketplace today. Models can include smaller units with basic features to larger units with triple slide-outs, two bedrooms and all the comforts and conveniences of home. They range from a compact 13-foot unit able to be towed with a car to 36-foot units requiring a pickup truck or other truck-based tow vehicle. And, of course, everything in between.

Floorplans and amenities in Travel Trailers are almost endless.  Options can include zero, one, two or three slide-outs, one or two entry/exit doors, full size bed(s) and/or bunk beds, compact or full-size refrigerators, stoves with ovens, multiple dining facilities, full bathroom facilities with a tub/shower, and the list goes on and on.

A Brief History of Route 66

All Seasons RV is a proud member of the ROUTE 66 RV Network, the largest network of independent RV dealers in North America. But not too many people know the real history of America’s Mother Road. Time magazine offers a great summary here: 

For nearly six decades, a two-lane road, running 2,448 miles, connected Chicago to Los Angeles. It was the path to Western promise for “Okies” escaping the Dust Bowl in the 1930s, the road under the soles of American nomads like Jack Kerouac. Route 66 was once considered an essential artery, its travelers a measure of America’s pulse. But by the mid-1980s, the road was deemed obsolete.

 Twenty-five years ago on June 27, Route 66 was decommissioned. But even as the no-tell motels and mom-and-pop shops along the road disappeared, the fables of America’s “Mother Road” continued to ramble on.

In the 1920s, federal highway officials, faced with growing automobile ownership (registered motor vehicles grew from 500,000 in 1910 to almost 10 million in 1920) and the impracticality of disjointed, named trails, began to develop a numbered road system. Oklahoma real estate agent and coal company owner Cyrus Avery worked with John Woodruff, a highway proponent, to advocate a diagonal roadway running from Chicago to Los Angeles. 

As an Oklahoman, Avery, who was also largely responsible for getting America’s Main Street its name, lobbied for the route because it would redirect traffic from Kansas City, Mo., and Denver and boost the state’s prosperity. The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) initially named the road Route 60 and then Route 62. 

Avery “strenuously objected” to the switch, even penning a letter to AASHTO executive secretary William Markham saying, “You are making a joke of the interstate highway.” On April 30, 1926, the route was renamed. Avery became known as the “Father of Route 66,” with Springfield, Mo., its birthplace.

RV’s Get in on the Food Truck Craze

food-trucks-1024x765

Have you ever been driving or walking down the street and you come upon a food truck serving up some of their delicious, one-of-a-kind specialties to the locals? In the big cities, you can find food truck almost on every corner during the lunch and dinner rush. Why? Because it’s a quick and convenient way to grab a bite to eat and sometimes they serve up delicacies that you can’t get anywhere else. You can also find RV’s being used as food trucks at many amusement parks, festivals and carnivals.

It’s also an opportunity for small businesses to get their product out to the public without the hassle and expense of actually owning a restaurant. And what better venue to serve their food from than an RV turned food truck. Here’s why RV’s make the best food trucks.

  • They are affordable – Depending on the type and style of RV that will suit the needs of the food truck company, most RV’s will come in at a fraction of the cost of actually purchasing, renovating and running a sit down restaurant. They save a lot of money on operating costs and don’t have to worry about the many, many permits that most restaurants have to obtain in order to do business (although they do need some).
  • Different sizes and styles to suit their needs – The types of RV’s that are most popular skilletfor food trucks are the travel trailers, camper van’s, and toy haulers because they can be converted the easiest rather than some of the bigger luxury RV’s. Although, there are some food trucks that utilize the entire space of those luxury RV’s. The food trucks typically have a window or two depending on the length of the truck, and a kitchen equipped with all the cooking appliances they need to properly prepare, cook, and store the food that they serve.

Here are a few examples:

  • They come equipped with built in kitchens (bigger RV’s) – Every great cook needs a great kitchen, or at least one that will suffice. The beauty of utilizing an RV for a food truck is they already have the hookups for kitchen appliances ready to go. All the owners have to do is purchase the equipment. Some RV/ food truck companies will even customize the layout of their food truck based on their needs.
  • Easy to transport (can go to where the customers are) – Food to go! The best part about using an RV as a food truck is you can transport it anywhere so the owners can serve up their delicious dishes and participate in the numerous fairs and festivals around the country. The more exposure they receive the better business they do and can provide for their patrons.

So, this summer while you are out hitting up the different festivals in your area, be on the look out for those RV’s turned food truck. Be adventurous and try something new. Maybe you’ll find a new favorite dish 🙂
