SHOWS FOR 2017 Posted on Jan 10, 2017

Good morning fellow campers! Just  quick note to let you know about our upcoming shows. 
 
Hamilton Show
 
The first is this coming weekend in Hamilton (Mount Hope) at the Warplane Heritage Museum.  Starts Friday at Noon and runs till Sunday at 5. Be sure and check out their website for tickets and info at :
 
 
Here we will have over 10,000 square feet of trailers on display from Rockwood, Puma, Puma XLE, Real Lite and Pheonix PLUS a huge parts display.   Make sure to check out the parts "giveaway" promotion.  Several lucky people will walk away with hundreds of dollars in prizes!  This is the FIRST show of the season and will set the bar very high for the rest. Our pens will be sharp to get you the best deals of the season. 
 
London Show
 
The next show that we will be attending will the London RV show and Sale at the Agriplex complex adjacent to the London Fairgrounds.  This runs from Friday February 17 through to and including Family Day on the 20th. Check it out at :
 
 
 
Again, we will have over 10,000 square feet of floor space to show off our inventory again from Rockwood, Puma, Puma XLE, Real lite and Pheonix.  Make sure to locate us in the "ARENA" section of the Agriplex.  Check on your maps for the layout.  We have had people miss us as the building is split up into two sections.  We are where you want to be!!  
 
If you can't make either of those shows then make SURE that you make a point to come out to our OPEN HOUSE in April on the dates 21,22 and 23.  Again, we will be featuring our now famous BEEF BBQ where we serve up delicious roasts of marinated beef on a home made bun.  This is just a small token to thanks our current customer and a welcome to those that have not had the pleasure of doing business with us.  There is a difference, it is the Adventure RV Difference.  
 
See you all very soon at one of these events or just stop by for a coffee and a chat.

2016 Show Season Posted on Jan 16, 2016

Good morning Campers.  Old man winter has been easy on us thus far making Spring seem to be just around the corner.  For those snow lovers out there, don't fret, I have it upon good advice he will be blasting us with winter in the near future even it is just for a bit.  Something to warm up our spirits though.  Show season is upon us!!  The time of year we get excited about as it means a new beginning.  The first show for us is the Hamilton RV Expo being held once again at the Canadian Warplane Heritage museum in Mount Hope from January 22-24 2016(see details on our Show Page for times and coupons).  Please do not confuse this with a lesser show that is running at the same time.  If you go to our Show page it will have the details and there are contests that you have to check out.  After last years show we here at Adventure RV Centre told the promoter that there needed to be a better parts display.  They agreed and we stepped up to the plate and will be providing the Accessory store.  To go along with this, the Promoter wanted to highlight this and has worked with us to provide $3000 in prizes to be awarded during the show in the form of gift certificates of varying denominations from $100 to $1000 dollars.  YOU HAVE TO CHECK THIS OUT!!! 
 
The Next show will be in London at the Newly renovated (as of last year) Agriplex complex on the Fairgrounds.  This is being held once again over the Family day weekend running from February12-15 2016 inclusive.  Be sure to mark this one on your calendar as well. 
 
At both shows we will be displaying many lines of Rockwood such as their Roo(hybrids), Mini-Lites, Ultra lites, Windjammers and their Signature Series trailers.  From Puma we will have their travel trailers, park models and their toy haulers.  Along with Puma we will be displaying the Puma XLE trailers that are a less expensive line of their trailers but still fully featured and the same construction. Definitely worth a look.  As well we will be displaying the Phoenix line of luxury fifth wheel trailers.  Also new for us this year is a line up of small light weight trailers from Palamino called Real Lite.  If you can only tow 3500 pounds then you have to check out these units.
 
In Review, the season has begun, even if Old Man Winter is here the weather is warm inside!! Come see us at one of these shows.

INSECTS, SPIDERS, TICKS, ANTS OH MY!!! Posted on May 26, 2015

Good afternoon fellow campers!!  We have been busy here at the dealership and in one of my training sessions it came to me that in the environment that we use our trailers there are any number of insects that also call the outdoors their home.  Quite and epiphany!!!  I don't know how many times we get service calls because an insect or a variety of insects has wrecked havoc on someone's appliance like a water heater, refrigerator, air conditioner etc.  You can't fault the little beasts for trying to find a nice home BUT the damage and grief they can cause is HUGE.  Over the years I have seen several water heaters catch on fire from propane blow back when the supply tube is blocked with a spider web.  Refrigerators that are supposed to automatically switch to gas don't when a spider blocks the orifice.  Air conditioners vibrate etc. when "mud dobber" hornets make a nest in the fan assembly.   We have a product at our disposal that we have been using for a couple of years now that is called Bug Tek by Aquatek.  I had written an article on it when we first introduced it so it worth repeating and giving you some practical applications.  Bug Tek is a derivative of a chemical used in hospitals and veterinary medicines.  It is Permethrin.  THIS derivative is not harmful to warm blooded animals including our pets and humans.  Once applied it lasts for several weeks if not months.  Any insect that walks over it will shortly thereafter expire even if the product has dried.  It is non staining and invisible.  My suggestion is to spray your water heater, refrigerator compartments and inside of your AC shroud.  Reapply every month for best results.  Any insects that attempt to enter these compartments will perish quickly leaving you to enjoy your trailer.  Use the product inside the trailer around door openings, inside storage cabinets so that if ants etc.  get in they too will perish.  Another great use is to spray our clothing when out walking in the woods to protect against ticks.  Ticks have been in the news as of late as more and more are being found to carry Lyme disease.  Please note that you still should perform a physical tick check at first chance and the use of Bug Tek does not relegate one from doing so.  It is just another line of defense.  Again, remember that this is NON toxic and safe for all warm blooded animals.  See Greg or Len at our service counter to get you spray bottle today. 
Happy, Bug FREE camping :)

HARD TOP HEAVEN !!! Posted on May 2, 2015

 Well, camping season has begun.  May 1st is the day that almost every park opens it's doors to the public.  Of course, the May long weekend is not that far off to boot.  We are in full swing and are knee deep in trailers going out or getting serviced.  We ask your patience and understanding as we cram as much in while still doing the best job we can.  A lot of trailers have been sold but we still have a huge inventory of units at great prices.  Most new units purchased were at low exchange rates and replacement units can be thousands more.  So, if you are in the market for an upgrade, see Ralph to get in on the best deals of the season. 
 
If you are in the market for a good used trailer, hard top, travel trailer or fifth wheel we have an abundance of them.  We now have 11 good used hare tops to offer, 2 hybrids, 23 travel trailers and 18 fifth wheels to choose from.  Honestly, one of the best good used selection in all of Ontario !!!
 
In the parts department we have a new employee.  His name is Greg.  Greg comes to us with many years in the parts industry and is a welcome addition to the group.  Make sure to wish him well when you stop in for your parts or accessory needs and take a look at what we have for new camping goodies THIS year.
 
All the best for a new season.  2015 camping season awaits.  Get out and enjoy !!!

Wildcat is BACK!!! Posted on Nov 11, 2014

As of November 2014 we are a Wildcat dealer !! Numerous upgrades to a superb trailer convinced us that we HAD to have this product on our lot.  A nice step up for our Rockwood fifth wheel customers, the Wildcats offer many features not found in similar mid level fifth wheels at a truly affordable price range.  Ranked as the number one selling mid level fifth wheel in North America, we now have several units in stock for viewing.  Touting that they are truly North American made they have gone to extreme lengths to source North American products/components vs. off shore.  Even the tires on their coaches are not made in China whereas most every other coach is.  Make sure to check them out on our inventory page and stop in for a personal viewing.  Ralph is eager to show them off.  Trades of course are welcome!!!

SIMCOE SHOW 2013 Posted on Feb 4, 2013

 

 

SIMCOE SHOW 2013 click on this for the video

First of all, thank you to all who braved the snow and frigid temperatures to attend our 10th Annual Indoor show and sale at the Aud in Simcoe, Ontario.  Mother Nature did not give us the best chance to show our wares but we still enjoyed everyone's company that attended.  For those that couldn't or didn't attend, you missed some great deals on parts and accessories and trailers.  I have to say a BIG thank you to a couple of our suppliers.  Dave from Danzy and Peter and Ray from Aqua-Tek.  Dave put up a fantastic display of greatly reduced parts and accessories.  I don't know how he go so low on the prices but, good show Dave.  On that note, Dave has authorized us to maintain those sale prices for this week only.  So, if you are in the market, call Krissi at our parts desk and see if anything that you were looking for is here on sale.  At the end of this week, it all goes back to London!  

From Aqua-Tek, we had the pleasure of having Peter and Ray attend the show to show their entire line up of products.  Their products have been sold at our store now for over a year now.  You may recognize products like, Easy Clean, Bug-Tek, Fabric Guard, Super Enzo etc.  This is only a very small sampling of what they have to offer and almost 100% of their line up is environmentally friendly.  Please take a minute the next time you are in to review their product offerings and try some.  I will personally guarantee them and will offer 100% of your money back if you are not satisfied that they do what we say they will.  Ask us about the Bug-Tek and mention at the parts counter that you read this article and receive 10% off if you purchase a bottle.  If you have insects like ants, ear wigs, beatles, silverfish, spiders etc.  this will eliminate them and will not harm your pets nor humans.  You can actually drink this product but is deadly to insects and spiders.  It is unique in that it where ever you spray it, it dries and if an insect walks accross it, it will die soon afterwards.  Anywhere flies land, dead soon afterwards.  Give it a try.  You will swear by it.  

On the trailer front, we had a great display of new models from Rockwood and Puma on hand with some new STALE inventory that were there to sell.  For those units that did not sell at stupid prices see the "specials" sections on the inventory tab of our website. For those that took advantage of these deals, good for you and ENJOY!  We used to have auctions here to blow these kind of units out but frankly these prices are below what we would have sold them in the past.  I am tired of looking at some of these so get them quick before someone else does.

Well, on to following up from the show and getting ready for the London show, Feb 15,16,17 and 18th.  See the london show website for coupons.  

 

Sincerely

 

Peter  

 

Tire Balancing Posted on Jan 22, 2013

Well, I guess I have opened up a can of worms with respect to raising questions regarding tire balancing and axle alignment in a recent questionnaire email.  First off, let me be clear that if a trailer does not have it's wheels balanced it is not a "safety" concern.  If that were the case, commercial trailers like landscape trailers and ones that haul heavy equipment such as excavators etc. would require this to be done as part of their annual safety.  They do not.    It is a "good to do" thing vs. a "need to do".  There are many cars and trucks running down the road today that are out of alignment and have unbalanced tires and yet will pass a safety with easeI bring up the issue of tire balancing as I was asked to do this on a customer's trailer earlier this year.  He was the one that made me aware that trailer tires aren't balanced.  It was an eye opener for me as I had never thought of it.  As far as a "good to do" thing that can possibly improve fuel economy I am all for it.  There are a ton of things that manufacturers "should" do when a trailer is built and most of you who are owners can think of a few pretty easily.  Typically, none of them are safety concerns.  As a dealer, we try and work with the manufacture when things are brought to our attention.  Sometimes they listen and sometimes they don't.  As far as the balancing of rims/tires goes, don't expect them to be jumping on that any time soon.  Whether or not you as an RV owner have the wheels balanced on your rig is something that you will have to determine is worth it or not.  If we can help we will.  

 

As always

Christmas Season Posted on Nov 30, 2012

Good afternoon my fellow campers!  Not much camping going on these days unless you have or will be heading south.  Or, for the hearty, winter camping!  If you are up to trying winter camping there are several parks that offer this.  Some of our customers that do this, rave about it!  

Now that December is here, all of our thoughts generally turn to the holidays.  We get very lonely here at the dealership as our camping families tend to forget that we have exceptional Christmas ideas and gifts that would make the camper or campers in your family happy to receive.  Everyone tends to gravitate towards the big box stores for their gifts when we have NEAT stuff not BORING stuff!  We will only be closing for two weeks from December 22 2012 to January 6 2013.  After that we are pedal to the metal with show preparations.  Our first show is February 01-03 inclusive, again at the Aud complex in Simcoe Ontario.  Please mark it on your calendars as this year DEALS WILL ABOUND. The next show we will be attending will be the London RV Show and Sale February 15-18 2013 at the Agriplex complex adjacent to the London Fairgrounds.  Make sure you print off the coupon from the internet to get in for less.

With the new Puma line of trailers ready to arrive we say goodbye to the Salem line of trailers.  We will still be honoring the warranty for the units that we have sold but will be supporting the PUMA line along with Rockwood extensively this coming season.  PUMA has impressed us with their attention to "getting the job done right the first time" attitude.  Our plant tours impressed every one of my staff.  It has been a hard decision to switch camps but we feel that the "little things" that PUMA does better will result in a better product for our customers and for us.  Come check them out.  They are arriving daily now.

By rationalizing the product that we carry to mainly the Rockwood and Puma, we have been able to buy MORE of them!  Selection of these products will be the best we have ever had.  Rockwood has some of the nicest offerings they have ever had.  More units are now available with their new DIAMOND package that make them a truly higher class trailer. Again, units are arriving daily.  Come check them out.

We are again looking at bringing our customer new and inovative services and products.  We can't wait to show you some of the new goodies in the accessory department that we have scoped out for you this upcoming season.  As for the service end of things we are investigating offering tire balancing.  We are investigating appropriate equipment at this point and are looking at tire and rim suppliers as well to supplement this.  Let us know your thoughts on this as equipment isn't cheap.  Would you spend $20 per tire?  More costly than a car but not as easily handled as a car either.  Let us know.

 

Well, that's it for now.  Stay in touch and remember, Your Next Great Adventure is Just Down the Road!

 

Sincerely,

 

Peter   

   

 

 

FALL Posted on Oct 11, 2012

Well, it has come to that time of year again when we all start packing the trailer up for winter.  Sad days these are.  But wait!  We have exciting news.  We are taking on the PUMA line of travel trailers, park models and fifth wheels.  This is so exciting that we can't wait until we get our first units in!  You will have to make sure to check out our inventory ASAP!  Call Ralph and ask for details.  

On the parts and service front, we have hired a new parts person. Her name is Debbie.  Call her DJ.  She is a great personality that will fit well with our group and with our customer base.  Please help me in wishing her the best and the next time you are in say HI!

With this time of year comes SALES, SALES, SALES!  we are so sold out of inventory it isn't funny.  There are still a few units before our new stock arrives that we want to make a deal on so please see Ralph for the best deals of the season.  You won't be dissapointed!

Please also note that we have the best inventory of consingment units that we have EVER had.  People have realized the value by having us sell their units that we have soooooo many units to sell that it is hard to stay on top of.  MAKE your deal happen  today!

Lastly.  Whomever has been in lately has met Marley.  Our  one year old yellow lab and "official" greeter.  She has been officially promoted to "Assistant Sales Manager".  Please  join me in congratulating her on this promotion.  She has worked very hard at making everyone's visit a special one and is with great pleasure that we announce this!  Thank you Marley for being such a memorable part of our lives. 

Not in jest now,  is my and my wife's sincerest appreciation of our customers.  You have been there for us this year when we truly needed you to.  We WILL go on to be the best that we can be and BETTER with your continued support.  PLEASE make a point to stop in and see us over the winter months as we will have many great Christmas ideas and will always have the coffee on for a warm hello and a chat! We are of course your humble servants in this glorious industry.

 

Sincerely,

 

Peter, Lori, Ralph, Len, Richard, Debbie and of course Marley!
