There’s never a bad time for an RV trip. As friends, family, and RV owners themselves have heard – or stated – countless times, a trip up to the woods in February is just as satisfying as an August night next to the camper, out under the stars. Whether spending time inside the RV relaxing, or outside, barbecuing and enjoying nature, the features and functions on today’s vehicles are powered by some highly advanced electronic controls and hardware. At Etratech, we like to keep up-to-date with what today’s RV owners are looking for – and often, that means keeping up with the latest advances across all technology.
Surprisingly, though, there are also a few low-tech ways that RV owners are modifying their interiors for improved mobility and space. Read about some of the latest RV trends, simple and complex, below:
Hidden TVs: It might be a flat-panel popping out of a table or dresser top, or a projection screen unwinding from the ceiling, but this has been one of the most popular space-saving trends in recent years. The growing availability and dropping prices of LCD and plasma TVs has made those the overwhelming choice in newer models. Some operate on a spring-and-latch system, and some emerge through electronic power – and that’s when electronic controls are needed.
Mobile Office: With the reach of the wireless office extending ever-further, even the most dedicated weekend warriors might need to check in on an extended vacation. From laptops, to printers, to routers and satellite connections, more and more RV buyers are making room for electronic s. It doesn’t have to be all for work, though – these installations are perfect for a quick streaming Netflix or Hulu fix, too.
No More Prefab: You’ve probably seen those old RVs where everything is fixed in place, from the tables to the chairs. Customers these days are opting for a simple solution to the problem of space – forego the prefabricated construction and invest in a free-standing table and some chairs. Move them out of the way as you go, put them outside for lunch, and enjoy unprecedented room and versatility!
