Depending on the survey, between ten and twenty percent of RVers list golf as an activity they enjoy as part of the RV lifestyle. When you think about it, the two do complement one another quite nicely. A motor home can pull the golf cart and trailer, or a toy hauler makes a great golf cart garage. Roomy storage compartments in today’s RV readily accommodate a set of clubs. After playing 18 holes with friends and family the RV provides a place to relax, visit and enjoy some refreshments. Many golf courses cater to RVers with on-site RV parks too, allowing you to lounge in comfort in your RV while you wait for your scheduled tee time.

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.
