Christmas is just a few days away. Don’t forget to include the RV on your gift list! Maybe a new mat for the entry door, a set of leveling blocks or a set of patio lights to hang from the awning. Although some would consider the last item the fruit cake of RV gifts! What ever gifts you give or receive this year, be sure to remember the greatest Christmas gift ever. That gift given in Bethlehem over two thousand years ago. One of the many benefits of this gift is; it lasts forever, one size fits all, everyone can use it and doesn’t take up any room at home or in the RV! Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and safe RV travels in the New Year.
Have you ever wondered how snowbirds and full timers display their Christmas lights this time of year?
Dave Helgeson’s many roles in the RV industry started before he even had a driver’s license. His grandparents and father owned an RV dealership before the term “RV” had been coined, and Dave played a pivotal role in nearly every position of an RV dealership. He and his wife Cheri launched their own RV dealership in the Pacific Northwest. The duo also spent 29 years overseeing regional RV shows. Dave has also served as President of a local chapter of the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA), worked on the board of advisors for the RV Technician Program of a local technical college, and served as a board member of the Manufactured Home and RV Association. Dave’s reputation earned him the title of “The foremost expert on boondocking,” bestowed by RV industry icon, the late Gary Bunzer (The RV Doctor). When he’s not out boondocking, you’ll find Dave in the spotlight at RV shows across the country, giving seminars about all things RVing. He and Cheri currently roam in their fifth travel trailer, with Dave doing all the service, repair and modifications to his own unit.
