We have had our annual ‘cold snap’ here in South Dakota with sub-zero temperatures but, so far, and for whatever reason we haven’t had much snow this winter. Maybe the country has somehow tipped sideways because the east coast and the southern states have been hit pretty hard with winter storms. Perhaps spring isn’t far away though; this week we have seen quite a few flocks of geese overhead coming back from the south. No matter, it is time to begin planning for camping ventures. We read that 70% of last year’s campers say they will try it again in 2022! That means that campgrounds will remain crowded this year.

Interestingly, in spite of the challenges of getting materials for building RVs, the overall RV factory shipments for last year set a record of well over 600,000 units! We can identify with those stats here at TrailManor; even though there have been challenges in getting materials, our factory shipments have remained steady. Thankfully, the problems with getting materials have lightened up but prices have increased remarkably.

IT IS SHOW TIME! From now through April there are RV shows scheduled. Check our website under the ‘Shows’ for dates/times/places.

Trailblazers Club is an organization of TrailManor owners who have chapters throughout the US. They publish a quarterly newsletter with stories/pictures of recent get-to-gathers and information about upcoming rallies etc. Their organization is growing and they have added a new chapter that includes ND, SD, MN, NE & IA. They will have a rally in Sioux Falls in mid-July. Folks from any chapter are invited. See more information on their website (linked on https://trailmanor.com/faqs/  under User Groups)

Welcome to our new dealers – ARIZONA ROUTE 66 RVs  –  BROWN’S CAMPING SALES (Georgia)  –  and TULSA RV.  More info on our website under the ‘Dealers’ tab.

Perhaps you read on our website or on our Facebook page that the inventor/founder of TrailManor (William Hulsey) passed away this past December. Our sympathies go out to his family.

Until March…
