With the holiday season upon us once again, we at Country Roads RV Center thought it would be a good time to tell you what our holiday schedule for 2021 will be. Just like you, we enjoy time with friends, family, and loved ones, so Country Roads RV Center will be operating with curtailed hours to create the best possible balance between availability to our customers and time for our staff to celebrate the holidays. 

Here’s our holiday schedule, so you and yours can plan accordingly! Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 25th:

Country Roads RV Center will be completely closed, including parts, sales, and service.

Christmas Week, starting Thursday, December 23rd:

Parts and Service will be closing at 1 pm, so our staff has time to make their own last-minute holiday preparations. [...]

Electric Trailer Tongue Jack

Oftentimes when our customers bring their RVs, toy haulers, and travel trailers to Country Roads RV Center for service or off-season inspection, they want more than simply having the caulking redone or the panels checked for cracks. Many times, they will ask about upgrade options and what we recommend in the way of possible additions, accessories, adapters, emergency equipment, and other components that might make their next camping season run just a little smoother and more easily.

When one of our campground contributors brought in their Apex Nano travel trailer for the postseason, they had mentioned that they wanted to upgrade to an electric trailer tongue jack. After some discussion about what they were looking for, we decided to install an electric trailer tongue jack [...]

At Country Roads RV Center, we’re always excited to add a new review of the best campgrounds, RV parks, and RV-friendly resorts for camping near us. This week, one of our campground contributors, Steve, went with his family to our featured campground, Myrtle Beach Travel Park in beautiful Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! Let’s take a closer look at this 2020 Travelers’ Choice Award winner from TripAdvisor.com and see what it offers in beautiful coastal South Carolina.

Myrtle Beach Travel Park is located at 10108 Kings Rd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29572. From Charlotte metro to northern Myrtle Beach is about 3.5 hours over good roads. Even better, it’s located on the quieter side of the area, with plenty of restaurants and family things to do. The entrance is well [...]

When cabin fever recently struck the home of one of our roving campground contributors, he loaded up the camper, packed up the family, and headed about 4½ hours south of Charlotte Metro. They landed at CreekFire RV Resort, which is located at 275 Fort Argyle Rd, Savannah, GA, ½ mile west of I-95 and within an easy drive of Hwy 77. Here’s what our intrepid explorer and his family had to say about their experience!

The Drive and Arrival To CreekFire RV Resort

CreekFire RV Resort is listed as both a Passport America and Good Sam park with a 9.5 Good Sam rating, an easy drive from the Charlotte metro area. Trip routing was very straightforward. If you get hungry, need to rest or just want to stretch your legs for a few minutes, there are three or four rest areas along the route where you can pull in and get a vending machine snack. [...]

At Country Roads RV Center, Inc., we see a lot of business, especially at the end of the season. In many cases, people notice a warranty issue and decide to brazen it out until their camping season is over before they try to get it repaired. Then they find out the dealer they purchased their RV or travel trailer from doesn’t have a dedicated, full-service repair department which can do warranty work. This leaves owners scrambling to get the issues fixed anywhere they can—which brings them, in turn, to us.

Like many RV dealerships that do have full-service repair and warranty departments, Country Roads RV Center gives preference to our existing customers for both routine maintenance and warranty repairs. This can mean that customers who come to us for repairs on [...]

The Carolina Rose Campground is located at 185 Jim Neely Road, Salisbury, NC 28144, near I-40 and I85 in the Piedmont region of North Carolina, about an hour from Charlotte and 45 minutes from Lake Norman. Our reviewer, avid camper Frank Sullivan, took his family to the Carolina Rose Campground the weekend of September 18-20th. Here are his thoughts!

The Carolina Rose Campground is a great “local” destination…

for the avid camper in the Charlotte metro area to get away from it all, and of course for the tourists who pass through on I-40 and I-85! Easy to find, it’s a lovely destination campground which I and my family will definitely be going back to in the future.

A few weeks ago, one of our campground contributors Matt took his family for a weekend of camping at the beach. This time around, they went to Cedar Island Resort, which is located in Cedar Island, NC on the North Carolina coast near the Outer Banks Ferry Terminal. Here’s what Matt had to say!

Cedar Island Resort is located about 5 ½-6 hours out of Charlotte off Cedar Island Rd, Cedar Island, North Carolina. Their website features solid travel guide links and a complete list of amenities and nearby attractions including Cedar Island restaurants

It was a lovely drive on mostly small roads, with only a few hills of any substance, which is a nice bonus when you’re hauling a trailer. We arrived late in the evening, and the entrance to the resort from Cedar Island Rd. is a little confusing. The entrance is on the right side of the roadway, near Cedar Island Ferry Terminal. [...]

Over the Memorial Day weekend, Mark Sullivan one of our contributors, and his family wanted to get away to the mountains. They landed at Bear Den Mountain Resort & Campground, which is located in the Pisgah National Forest, off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Milepost 324.8 close to Spruce Pine, NC. Here’s what Mark had to say!

We set off on our journey to Bear Den Campground on a beautiful, sunny Friday, May 22nd. It was a nice, short two-hour drive. The first you notice about Bear Den Mountain is that it is a true mountain resort and campground, about 3,000 up in the air, and very beautiful.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by very friendly staff. They really tried to let people know their safety is a [...]

How to choose and buy the best toy hauler for YOUR RV lifestyle

At Country Roads RV, we get a lot of questions and requests for advice about toy haulers, how they fit into the camping world and which one is “the best.” Like everything else to do with RVs and camping, there is no “one size fits all” solution for toy haulers, there’s just the right solution for your family and your needs. In this article, we’ll evaluate the pros and cons of choosing which popular toy haulers best fit your lifestyle and how to determine the ideal toy hauler based on amenities, layout, configuration and other factors. But before [...]
