As one of the biggest states in America, Texas is so big that if it were a country, it would be the 39th largest country in the world. This means there is plenty of see and do throughout Texas, especially if you are heading out in your RV. Here are some of the best RV trips in Texas.
Dinosaur Valley State Park
About 113 million years ago, dinosaurs walked through what is now a beautiful state park. These footprints have been preserved and you can walk along the Paluxy River bed to see them for yourself. In addition, make time for some fishing and horseback riding. Nightly rates for water and electric hookups run about $25.
Space Center Houston
If you have always dreamed of travelling to the stars, why not visit one of the main locations for the NASA space program? In Houston’s Space Center, you can see moon rocks, lunar samples, and other historical artifacts from past space missions. You can even meet real astronauts if you visit on a Friday. The Space Center RV Park is less than 10 minutes from the Space Center with daily rates starting at $44.99.
Guadalupe Mountains National Park
Located within the Chihuahua Desert, this breathtaking park showcases the Permian fossil reef, diverse desert wildlife, and vast mountains and canyons. Stay at a nearby campground for as little as $8 per night.
These road trip destinations in Texas are only a few of the many great places you can find when you explore the state in your RV from Hanner RV Supercenter.
Are you considering making the jump into the world of RV ownership? Navigating the different types can be confusing at first, but Hanner RV’s knowledgeable sales staff will be happy to help you determine the best fit for your needs. Often, the best fit for first-time RV buyers is a toy hauler, and here’s why.
You need a place for your toys.
A lot of first-time RV buyers are already outdoorsmen and women who are ready to embrace camping more fully. That means you probably already own ATVs, jet skis, and snowmobiles. A toy hauler is the perfect way to take your toys with you on your adventures.
You want to enjoy the outdoors with your friends and family.
We get it. There’s a certain appeal of “roughing it” by yourself. However, we all know that it’s more fun to explore the outdoors with your favorite people. Toy haulers ensure you’ll have enough space for everyone to live and sleep comfortably—and bring your favorite toys.
You like to bring vacation home with you.
If you frequently go out on adventures to new places and fall in love with artwork, furniture, or other large goods produced locally, but never know how to get it home without insane shipping costs, a toy hauler is for you.
If you have decided to buy a toy hauler, pay a visit to Hanner RV to see our selection.
About a decade ago, the RV industry was in trouble. The recession was in full swing and gas prices were exploding, making it not a good time for many Americans to make a significant purchase like a recreational vehicle. But today, RV sales are skyrocketing, and you may just be surprised when you hear which generation is responsible for this dramatic upswing.
Coast to coast, Millennials love RVs. They’re buying them in record numbers, boosting RV year-over-year sales revenue into the double-digits. Younger buyers, or those under the age of 34, are not opting for massive, Class-A, higher-end motorhomes, but for smaller, more compact, Class-C models. The sales of “towables,” rather than the classic “driveables,” account for a significant portion of sales over the past three years. There’s a reason for this; smaller RVs not only cost less up-front and require less fuel, but they’re easier to maneuver and park at campgrounds, and often don’t require a special permit.
The fact that Millennials love RVs has done more than just revitalize the RV industry. Over the past three years, America’s National Parks have seen record-breaking numbers of visitors and campers, many of whom arriving and camping in an RV.
RVs help people to experience the wonders of the natural world, bond with their friends and family, and create lifelong memories — which is why we love to sell them here at Hanner RV Supercenter. Visit us today to find your new home-away-from-home.
