GoNewmar.com – A New Social Sharing Site Just for RVers

GoNewmar_logoAt Newmar, we not only love building world-class RVs, we love the RV lifestyle. Countless Newmar employees – including Newmar President Matt Miller – enjoy covering thousands of miles in their own coaches each and every year. And while it can be a lot of fun to travel from coast to coast with little more than a map, the rise of the internet has made it possible to enhance just about any journey using reviews, photos and other tips and tricks shared by fellow RVers.

Unfortunately, we struggled to find websites where RV travelers can interact and exchange photos and information safely and easily. As RV enthusiasts, we wanted to build an online destination where RV owners could join together and share their favorite destinations, from parks and landmarks to campgrounds and restaurants. So we decided to create GoNewmar.com, a user-friendly website designed for RVers, by RVers.

With GoNewmar.com not only can you share your open-road adventures with your fellow travelers, you can win great prizes at the same time! Read on to learn how it works…

TheFitRV-Logo-TaglineStef and James launched TheFitRV.com with the goal of “keeping you and your RV on the road.” As a Top 50 RV Blog, The Fit RV delivers valuable tips and tricks to help RVers enjoy a happier, healthier RVing experience. Whether you’re looking for workouts, recipes, RV advice or park reviews, TheFitRV.com can help.

Have you ever wondered what qualifies a person as “old?” Many say it’s the arrival of a certain age. Others simply claim old age begins when our first grandbaby is born. Still, some believe we should consider ourselves “old” after we develop certain physical attributes. Of course, we all grow older, but becoming “old” isn’t something that is inevitable or forced upon us, as many choose to believe. It comes down to our choices and how we decide to live as the years pass us by.

Staying active is the key to aging well and remaining healthy and on the road for a long, long time. There are all sorts of opportunities to stay active, even if you live in your RV fulltime. Yet it can be way too easy to relax the day away in a lawn chair, watching the activity around you instead of engaging in it. But by doing so, you’re missing out, letting your body grow older in the process.

Below, I have included some ways you can incorporate more activity into your busy RV lifestyle that will help you to look younger, feel healthier and improve your overall quality of life.
