RV Travel Outside the U.S.: Visit Canada & Mexico - Part 2

In our blog last week, we spent some time talking about RVing in Mexico and Canada, about the importance of getting passports, travel visas, vehicle insurance and registrations in order before you go, for stress-free travel. We also gave you intrepid travelers some links to make sure you don’t try to travel with prohibited items, either leaving the U.S. or coming back. This week we’r…

I just finished a meeting with Marshall White, Terry Muir and a gentleman named Mike Boyle who represents the University of Oregon. We are proud sponsors of both Duck and Beaver football, and we were meeting with Mike to discuss the first year of our sponsorship and what went well, what we wanted to do better or more interesting this year. I am lucky to get to work with some amazing creative peopl…

RV Travel Outside the U.S.: Visit Canada & Mexico - Part 1

As we all know, the U.S. is full of amazing RVing destinations. But one of the wonderful things about living in North America is that RVers also have two entire continents to explore from the comfort of their homes on wheels. Crossing the border to drive the highways and byways of Canada, Mexico, or on down into South America isn’t hard to do and opens up a new world of possibilities for adv…

Epic Failure Ever hear that term? Have you ever lived that term? When I was in college, I played a lot of tennis, I had a partner and he and I played almost every week for two years. We were competitive but mostly not really talented, but our skill levels were very similar, so our matches could be very hotly contested and the more we played together, the tighter the games. It has been 36 year…

RV Lifestyle: Working From the Road

Here at Guaranty RV, we work with people all the time who are opting to give up their stationary lifestyles for life on the road. While a good number of those travellers are retirees who are selling the homestead and taking up snowbirding as a lifestyle, increasing numbers of working Americans are also seeing the advantages of combining their love of travel with bringing in a paycheck. There have …

Dear Team: As you know, the main office is undergoing some construction and all of us have had to move our offices. I just finished moving over to RV Service to share a room with Kendra for a while and part of that task involved going through a bunch of file boxes and deciding what needs to be kept and what needs to be tossed. As I was standing at the shredder just a few moments ago, I thought a…

I have a picture on a wall in my office of a young boy jumping off a pier into the ocean below. Now, I would never claim to be in the same league as Craig Strobeck in photography, but this is one of several pictures I have taken in my life that I am proud of how it turned out. I can remember all the details of this picture, it was getting late in the day, it was hot. I was shooting in natural ligh…

RV Financing: Get Smart About RV Loans—Part 2

Guaranty RV has been here in Junction City selling cars, pickups and RVs for more than fifty years, so we’ve learned a lot about RV financing and helping our customers get behind the wheel of their perfect RV without blowing their budget. They’ve told us over the years that the financing aspect of purchasing an RV is sometimes the scariest part. That’s why we’ve devoted thi…

Are you Dynamic? I was asked to proofread and comment on an employment ad we were placing earlier this week and those were the first three lines of the ad. I immediately took exception to them, asserting that nobody really knew what that meant and they should be removed. Terry (who wrote the very rough draft) and I had a spirited debate over the course of a couple of days and it spilled over int…

What Can I Tow Behind My Motorhome?

Traditionally, the best flat tow vehicles are rear wheel drive with manual transmission, or a four-wheel drive with a manual transfer case that can be placed in neutral. Although most vehicles can be towed it’s important to refer to the owner’s manual to determine if it can be flat towed with a tow bar or if you need to use a trailer or dolly, as well as any towing restrictions. See Ta…
