Frank’s RV Newsletter Fall 2017

Now is the time to explore with an RV!

I thought it was about time I got out an article for 2017, as it has been a while.   

How about an opening picture take from the my RV?

Willamette Valley Blacktail deer in velvet during early August 2017. He has disappeared from the scene as of August 19th.. He will show up after the season for more pictures.

First note of the day is that I believe ground is finally moving up in Woodland, Washington on the new B Young RV Dealership.   Taken a while to get the permits and of course get the complex plans all put together and signed off.   The complex is going to be quite the RV Dealership and it will be great for our Washington customers, making it much easier getting their RV’s service and buying an RV.   Of course our staff that lives in Washington will get an automatic pay raise in having not to pay the Oregon Income Tax for working in Oregon.

B Young RV just got done with the second Tiffin Rally in 7 years.  This Rally was held in Salem, Oregon and was a very successful Rally for B Young RV, Tiffin RV, Sales Staff and that of the customers that drove away after a couple of days in their new Tiffin RV.

Since my last article B Young RV has added a couple more Sprinter chassis based motorhome companies, that being Winnebago with the Navion (Class B+) and Regency RV with the Exalta (Class B).  Both companies are highly regarded in the industry.

Tiffin has come out with the Wayfarer Sprinter chassis Class B Motorhome.  My feelings are that the Wayfarer is right up at the top.   One of the standards from Tiffin is the diesel generator and solid hardwood cabinetry.  The Chafee style door makes it easier for seniors to put their cargo in the holds.

Business wise at B Young RV, another recorded breaking year for the company, it is simply amazing how much traffic and the number of RV’s heading to destinations all over North America.

About 4 months ago I traded in my 3rd RV bought from B Young RV for another.  Seems when they are about 1 ½ years old with 35K on them, it is time.  As you all know it is all about the floorplan and the floorplans changed all the time.   This one might have to last a while…  It is the first one with a solar panel, factory installed inverter and the TUMA hot water heater system.  My wife said she loves this RV and has done some interior decor, styled to the beach, this being the first time in any of our RVs’…

TUMA  system is easy to use and get hot water on demand.

It is a phenomenon to see what is happening with Grand Design RV and the popularity of the many products they make with the Imagine, Reflection, Solitude and Momentum.  Inventory is tough to keep and the factory is making more plants to keep up with the demand.  Recently my neighbor, who has been looking for a travel trailer, bought an Imagine and did not mind waiting for a factory order.

The fall season camping season is about to start and many of the camp grounds now have openings.  So many times the weather in the valley can be bad, and trying to go east can be tough with the weather in the mountains, but the Oregon or California coast can be great.  The parks this summer were tough to get in with no or little openings, even during the middle of the week.  Have you ever thought how lucky we are to have a coastline that we can see the ocean and get to the beach fairly easy?

Roosevelt Elk are something to look for during a trip to the coast or along the coast. This is an Oregon bull, but California on the Northern Hwy 101 is the spot to catch them…

Oregonians are very privileged to have so many Oregon State Parks to use.   RVers’ come from all over North America to see and camp in Oregon, thus you’ll see many using these parks.   The Californians come in groves during the fishing season using all the parks on the Oregon Coast. 

I have seen during our travels south to the border that many of the State Parks are going through upgrades, such newly installed septic hookups at most campsite and best of all the clearing of the plants and brush in the campsites.   This allows larger RV’s to use the sites.  It is always said, “If it fits, then it is your campsite” FRB  

This Whale was very close to the rocks. One has to be on the ready to get the shots.

There still are Whales working up the Oregon Coast as of this past week.  To be truthful, almost every spot one could pull alongside the road, you could see Whales breaching.  At Whales Cove, there were Cow’s with Calves working the bay.   There is a trail that you can get close, but be careful about putting your weight on the tree on the edge overlooking the bay.  It is a long ways down to the rocks below…

This Whale and others near Boiler Bay, Oregon

For all of B Young RV Customers and those that read this have a great fall and winter.  Those heading south to AZ and S.E. California, have a great and safe trip.

Looking forward to 2014 an Even Year!

He won't be there for Christmas Dinner!
He won’t be there for Christmas Dinner!

I truly wish everyone that reads this, A Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  I do hope that the Holidays are great with the gathering of family and friends.   May the New Year bring prosperity to this great Nation and those that support Her!

2013 Has been a great year for B Young RV and the employees’ of our company that will start it’s 5 year in business.   I have been blessed to work for B Young RV from the first couple of months of being of being open.    It is great to work for a company that truly cares about their employees, for the second year in a row Bruce Young and his business partner Mark Bretz have given to every employee with profit sharing checks at a time of the year that everyone can use it.  It is blessing to all that receive that never expected it!

The November 2013 Metro RV Show was an outstanding show with the selling of every Tiffin Allegro Open Road Motorhome.   I would have to say it was a wild time at the show.   One of my new customers came to the show while heading out of town to Montana.   They just had to see and touch the new Tiffin Open Road 36LA they had heard so much about.   Words as they were leaving “we will be back, we are buying that coach.”  They did come back the following week and buy a Tiffin Allegro Open Road  36LA like we had at the show in Maroon Coral exterior, though they had to do a factory order.   The Tiffin Allegro Bus 45LP, didn’t last long either at the show, as neighbors’ to the north of CONUS came to the show and bought it…   I can only say it was a recorded show for B YOUNG RV!

If I haven’t said it before, it is true that everyone can camp year round in Oregon.  RVing is a year round event in Oregon.  Do you remember how the weather was in Portland Metro area of Oregon during Thanksgiving this year?   Well we pulled our motorhome out of storage at Portland Luxury RV & Boat Storage in Milwaukie, Oregon on the Monday before Thanksgiving.  I had told PLRB, that I would not be using it until January!   “Hmm!” Dawn said to me at PLRB!  Head out on Tuesday in the Heavy Fog on I-5.   We took the cutoff to Drain and Reedsport with the fog trying to lift in the coastal mountains, once we hit the turn off to Loon Lake on the Umpqua Highway the blue sky emerged.   From what I understand the fog never lifted in Portland during the time we were gone.   The weather was great and the temperature was around 50-55 degrees on the Oregon Coast.   Fish & Chips at Bedrocks on the wharf at Winchester Bay, Oregon and the cook did disclose where he had harvest the nice Roosevelt Bull that hangs in hangs in the back dining area. . .  Classified!
