's Guide to Fall RV Travel!

Camp USA’s Guide to Fall RV Travel!

The kids are heading back to school and summer cookouts may be coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean your RV adventures are over. Fall is one of our favorites times of the year, and for good reason. With the incredible foliage, college football games and racing events in abundance, there is plenty to do with friends & family… if you know where to go.

So, strap down those tailgating coolers and follow us on a journey to some of the best autumn events in 2017!

Stop #1 Miami University vs Florida State University

As a native Floridian you can’t help but enjoy college football, especially when they are Florida schools. This September is shaping up to be an epic display of college football starting with the Miami U and Seminoles game at the Doak S. Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee. Whether you are alumni or just a fan of the game, this rivalry matchup is sure to entertain.

As you may know, the only way to prep for the game is by taking part in the tailgating festivities, and traveling by RV is a must. This will give you and your friends an opportunity to keep the tailgate atmosphere alive after the game is done. Keep in mind that parking for RV’s at the Stadium is only available to booster members, but there are plenty of campgrounds nearby that cater to the college football fans.

Stop #2 Tennessee

With autumn comes incredible foliage. Although many RV travelers may think New England is home to some of the best foliage displays, they clearly have never traveled to Tennessee. The Great Smoky Mountains are one of the most well known areas for fall foliage and can be seen in a number of ways.

Driving your RV is one of the best ways to see a variety of colors throughout the scenic area, however it doesn’t make a fun trip for the driver. With an array of hiking paths throughout the Smoky Mountain terrain, this will probably be your best bet. From there you will not only submerge yourself in the surroundings, but will have an opportunity to take breathtaking photos from a higher vantage point.

Stop #3 Homestead Miami Speedway

The final stop on our Fall RV Tour is to one of our favorite racing spots in the country, Homestead Miami Speedway. November 19th marks the start of the Ford EcoBoost 400, 300 and 200. It is rare to be able to enjoy three Nascar Championships within one weekend, and is why race fans will be coming from all over to enjoy a slice of history.

When it comes to traveling for a Nascar Race, hitting the road by RV just makes sense. With the Geico Camping Grounds located inside the speedway gates, this will allow you to enjoy some of the best tailgating and camping conditions just steps from the track. Keep in mind spots fill up early, so you will need to grab your RV Camping Package ASAP.

A Guide to the Best Florida Racing

There is nothing like some good ole’ fashioned Nascar. Located in Florida, we are lucky enough to be just an RV drive away from some of the world’s top races! Don’t believe us? Just take a look at our guide below!

The Coke Zero 400 – July 1, 2017

Pack up your friends & family and head down to Daytona Beach for one of our favorite races of the year… the Coke Zero 400. Last year the Daytona Internatinal Speedway unveiled their rennovated stadium, and let’s just say it is a sight to see. Here you can get up close and personal with the top drivers in Nascar.

This year’s Coke Zero 400 race will definitely be one you don’t want to miss. There will be a special tribute to Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s career before he heads onto the track at the Daytona International Speedway for the last time. So, if you are looking to become a part of Daytona Nascar history, grab your RV spot and tickets below!

Fara Sebring 500- July 9-10, 2017

If you can’t make it to the Coke Zero 400 Independence Day Weekend, don’t forget about the Fara Sebing 500 on July 9th! Although the Sebring track is known for its’ 12 hour race, this event is only 4 hours, making it a perfect event for those traveling with family. In addition to the family friendly hours of the race, the Fara Sebing 500 is extremely affordable, costing only $10.00 at the gate!

Ford Championship Weekend – November 17, 2017

If you are heading out on the open road this fall, we recommend grabbing your tickets for the Ford Ecoboost 200, 300 and 400 at Homestead Miami Speedway. This jam packed, playoffs weekend is full of fun for adults and families who share a love for Nascar.

Be sure to make the most out of your RV trip to Homestead by visiting a few of the surrounding areas incuding the Everglades National Park and Miami Zoo.

The Camp USA Consignment Perks

How often does your RV sit outside the house? The average RV owner uses their unit recreationally 3-6 times a year. So, our question for you is, what does it do during its’ downtime?

What if we told you there was a way you could use your RV its’ normal 3-6 times a year, but get a return on your investment for when it sits? We know what you are thinking… no way does an opportunity like that exist… and we are here to tell you it does, and it will change how you look at your RV.

RV Consignment has become the leading opportunity for coach owners who only hit the open road a couple of times per year. Camp USA’s Consignment Program allows for owners to rent their unit to other RV enthusiasts without having to worry about deposits, cleaning, scheduled maintenance and marketing. The benefits are endless and the process is simple.

Why Consign?

Consignment opportunities are the perfect solution for those looking to get more out of their initial investment while still having the luxury of using their RV. Programs from companies like Camp USA handle the vast majority of work involved with consignment. They will be consistently working to rent out your unit, while ensuring your RV is taken care of and working in peak condition.

How do I know my RV is being taken care of?

Great question! Camp USA understands that you are trusting your vehicle to others. We instill a No Smoking policy on all coaches. Fines are strictly enforced if evidence of smoking is found, a security deposit in addition to the cost of the rental are in place for your protection. We make it our job to see your RV is kept in pristine condition and is cleaned before and after every use. Necessary maintenance and checks are performed frequently, so as the owner you have a piece of mind knowing all issues are handled immediately and by a team that specializes in RV repair and servicing.

Do I need to provide the renters with anything?

We have you covered. Camp USA provides all items requested by the renter including bed linens, utensils, GPS, etc. Cleaning will be done by our team along with the screening of each renter, check ins, check outs, damage charges and supervision of maintenance. As the owner what you provide is of course your RV, commercial insurance, and coach guard (similar to AAA, but for coaches). Once those items are ready to go… you are ready to rent.

How do we use our RV once it is part of a consignment program?

Again excellent question. Our policy simply asks that you schedule your personal use in advance and we will do our best to make your RV available. Although we do not enforce a strict rule, we do ask that all owners leave standard holidays open. Why? Because that is our busiest time which will result in more revenue for both parties.

How do we get people to rent our RV?

We’ve got that covered too. With two locations in Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale our Florida coverage is vast. This allows us to market in both areas for rental. Through social media and our newly designed website, we are able to connect with our target audience and introduce new rentals to RV travel enthusiasts. Through our website, individuals or families looking to rent can view each available unit, it’s amenities and additional photos that highlight your vehicles best qualities. From there they can contact us directly and begin the process.

What will my return be?

Depending on the base rental for your coach, revenue is split 50/50. On the 15th of every month our team will prepare a revenue reconciliation for the previous month. From there owners will receive a check payment and copies of each rental contract for the prior month, keeping you up to date and knowledgable regarding all use of your RV.

Our aim is get you the maximum return possible and see that you are satisfied with how your unit is being utilized. Renting your RV through Camp USA’s consignment program safeguards your vehicle if any damage or misuse should happen. With all elements handled by Camp USA you can now kick back and relax until your next RV vacation.
