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 🙂

Advantages of Financing Through a RV Lending Specialist

  • Down payments are lower – Although final terms are determined based on your credit profile and the age, type and cost of the RV being purchased, financing through RV lenders usually requires down payments in the 10% range.
  • Finance terms are longer / Monthly payments are lower – Because RV finance specialists know that RVs maintain their value and resale appeal, they tend to offer more attractive terms. In fact, it’s not uncommon to find 15-20 year repayment schedules to help you afford the RV of your dreams.

Motorhome Maintenance

class-a-motorhome

So you went out and got yourself a fancy motorhome. These RVs are an awesome choice for anyone who doesn’t want to worry about hitching up and towing a trailer and for RVers who simply want the convenience of hopping in the RV and heading out for adventure. Unlike towables, there’s a little more maintenance that goes into a motorhome than what goes into a trailer. Here are a few tips on how to maintain your motorhome.

Change Your Oil Regularly | It might seem obvious, but we once knew someone who let their oil go 18,000 miles OVER. Yeah, not a smart move. Change your oil regularly, following exactly what the owner’s manual says to. If you know you’re going to end up going over on your mileage while traveling, just change your oil before you head out. And, while you’re at it, make sure you check your oil and top it off if necessary before you depart for your next trip.

Check Fluids | Make sure you change your transmission fluid once a year. Additionally, ensure your coolant is up to par and the cooling system is flushed and cleaned on a yearly basis. Every three months check your fuel filter to ensure it is still viable. A quality fuel filter can help save on fuel costs and fuel efficiency.

Brakes | Have these checked anytime you’re getting the oil changed. A professional mechanic will be able to tell how your brakes are wearing, estimate when they might need to be changed, and alert you of any issues that might impact them. Your brakes are incredibly important because you don’t have a tow vehicle to stop. Keep up with them and you’ll be keeping your family safe and happy.

Body | Check your rig’s exterior to make sure it’s free of any corrosion, rust, or damage that could turn into something bigger in the future. After you vacation in dusty or salty air make sure you rinse off your RV with fresh water.

The World’s Most Expensive RV

3M-RV-1

The Palazzo

The first thing you will notice is that the Palazzo looks like some sort of vehicle you would see in

a movie set 50 years in the future. It also looks like an experiment gone horribly wrong, or something that would have aliens on board.

But the outside is not what people buy this luxury RV for, so let’s step inside!

On the inside you will find just an amazing amount of luxury, some necessary, some not, but it all adds up to give this one hefty price tag. Want to turn your RV into a rooftop bar and lounge? It can be done in a click of a button with the Palazzo.

Now this feature, while unnecessary, is something that is super cool. Imagine being able to hit a button and watch your roof turn into a place where you can have a bar and lounge? But the fun does not end there.

Continuing through this wonder you will find a fireplace, an underfloor heating system and a master bedroom located on the second floor that also features its very own luxurious bathroom.

With all this luxury you would think that this RV would just be a traffic jam waiting to happen, but you would be wrong in assuming that however. Despite all the amenities, the Palazzo can reportedly reach a top speed of 93 mph. That’s a lot of speed for a home on wheels.

What about safety you say? The Palazzo is on top if it.

A programmed central control provides all of your important information with by a graphic interface and a touch screen.

If you are leaving your Palazzo for a while, don’t worry! You can monitor your RV via an additional control unit. Remote video access allows you to show your friends the exterior and interior and also permits to pre-set the lighting and temperature for you return to the vehicle.

Basically everything you could ever want in an RV is in the Palazzo.
