New Motorcoach with garage underneath

Volkner German RV with hideaway for your vehicle  
From searching online, I found an amazing new motorcoach that allows towing underneath for your vehicle being touted by the German company Volkner.
Ah, those Germans.. There are two sizes that can accommodate different sized vehicles.

As the motorcoach comes available in the U.S. it should create quite a sensation.

Travel Photos now on Facebook

Check out some of our archived travel photos over the years now on Facebook. Some of these are from our travels to national parks, Alaska, and other remote locales over the years. We will be adding more travel photo albums to also include some of the unique stays and attractions we have been to and feature here at Southpoint.

New RV Innovations

Recently, we attended an RV show to see what's new. Seeing as how we have owned 6 RVs of different shapes and sizes over the past 10 years, we're always on the lookout to upgrade and also see how manufacturers are paying attention to market trends. It's good to see all the neat gadgets.

Where were these when we were traveling fulltime a few years ago? We utilized the very first wireless cards to access the Internet via dialup years ago, and would often get puzzled looks from others wondering how one of our laptops could be connected without a modem. We appeared on an RV segment of the Discovery Channel, and traveled through 40 states. Our focus now on Southpoint is more on the general travel market overall, with more emphasis on unique and historic destinations.
Today, RVs are enjoying a surge of interest from families, babyboomers retiring, and others.
The range of RV options now include Internet workstations, fireplaces, recessed lighting, flatpanel TVs, full-sized kitchens, and "toyhaulers", depending on what size and type looking for.

As we prepare for our upcoming RV trip in April, we have some temptation to upgrade from our current Mobilescout. If we could just find a good RV sponsor...
