There’s a trend that’s been going on for some time now, but for a while it sort of flew under the radar. It's called the “retro look”. Now it’s no longer flying under the radar but front and center in just about anything you see these days, including RVs.
Why just a few years ago vintage looking retro trailers were only being built by smaller, specialty RV manufacturers. Today, you’d be hard-pressed to find any major manufacturer who isn’t building at least one retro model trailer. In other words, Retro is hot.
Here, Jeff Johnston takes out a new Gulf Stream Coach retro-model trailer called the Vintage Cruiser, which, by the way, has become one of Gulf Stream's hottest lines. As Jeff often does when he reviews RVs, he took a Vintage Cruiser for an extended weekend review and was pleasingly surprised with this light-weight trailer.
The design harkens back to the fifties both in its exterior and interior design, only these beauties have all the 21st century technology you’d expect in a modern RV. The Vintage Cruiser series is available from 17 – 23-feet in length. The company now offers a new model with bunks for the kids or grandparents. Check out Jeff’s review and who knows, maybe one of these may be in your driveway soon.
Leave it to John DiPietro to find an RV destination that has so much to offer. Really… Myrtle Beach has so many attractions and things going on to satisfy anyone, but then when you add staying at the Ocean Lake Family Campground, it almost becomes overload.
Ocean Lakes is big, and I mean big. It encompasses 310 acres, has 29-miles of paved roads and 859 camping and RV sites. Then there’s the huge water park with 68,000 feet of pool deck, tube slides and adventure river.
With a campground this big, getting around is a serious consideration. While some people walk and some have bikes, many choose to rent one of the parks 905 electric golf cars. (Which is a story in itself as you’ll see in the show.)
Each Sunday morning at 6:30am the park holds a sunrise mass right along the beach, with around 2,500 people attending.
Outside the park, Myrtle Beach is an oasis of fun and activity with dozens of restaurants, entertainment facilities and shopping. The best way to get a real idea of what this area has to offer is to watch the story. For more information on Ocean Lakes Family Campground visit: www.oceanlakes.com
