What Do RV Model Numbers Mean?

To those who know how to decipher them, RV model numbers tell you the floor plan – vehicle length (many times this is the box length, not the overall length) – and option packages of the vehicle in question. The problem is that like much of the RV industry there is no universal way to do things, so there is no universal language for model numbers. Luckily, like the romance languages, i…

For sake of simplicit…

Buzz Words Don't Fly At Guaranty

Is it just me or does it seem like time goes by faster everyday? I remember hearing “time flies when you’re having fun!” as a kid, but now time seems to fly no matter what kind of time we’re having.

Do you learn from bad experiences, or use them as an excuse?

Dear Guaranty Team: I was thinking the other day about bad things. Most specifically how bad things happen to people. I was having lunch with an acquaintance yesterday, and we touched on the subject of our prior marriages. It got me to thinking about my divorce from my first wife. At that time, and to this day, that is the single worst period I have ever gone through. I can still vividly remembe…
