On the Road RV Exercising for Adults

Reines RV is your premier recreational vehicle destination since 1946. When you’re looking for new or used motorhomes, trailers, and fifth wheels, Reines can take your dream and turn it into a traveling reality.

Whichever option you choose for traveling, you’ll spend plenty of time sitting and snacking. Eating properly and adding an exercise routine to the travel itinerary will help keep you fit while enjoying an on-the-road adventure.

Walking

Take walks around the park campgrounds, along nature trails, or in town when visiting local attractions. This activity burns calories and provides a good workout for the heart and muscles.

Indoor Exercises

On days when the weather isn’t cooperating, several indoor exercises are possible. Doing simple routines such as stretches, toe touches, sit-ups, leg lunges, windmills, and running in place are viable options.

Stretches

Muscles can easily tighten up on a long road trip. To alleviate the problem, consider one these exercises.

  • Sit and lower your head down to your knees letting hands hang loose to the floor. Hold the position for a count of 10. Do this throughout the day to stretch the lower back.
  • While seated, place hands behind one knee and pull the knee towards the chest. Hold for at least 30 seconds. Release and repeat steps for the other leg.
  • Place hands on a chair back or table. Lift your foot behind you grasping the ankle and pulling upwards, gently. Hold the position for 30 seconds. Release and repeat.
  • Standing at the sink or other stable surface with feet slightly apart, rise up onto the balls of your feet. Do this 10-15 times. On the last repetition, hold the position for 10-15 seconds. Finish the exercise by placing one foot forward. With toes pointed upward, flex the foot and hold for 30 seconds. Switch legs and repeat.
  • Holding a small weight in each hand raise arms overhead then slowly bend elbows lowering the weights behind you. Raise arms back to the overhead position. Repeat triceps curls several times.

Bring your ride to Reines RV for a complete service check-up, parts, and accessories or to repair collision damage. You’ll travel stress free knowing you and your RV will be fit as a fiddle on your next excursion.

The Advantages of Fifth Wheel Campers

Why fifth wheels are better

Photographer: Pat Williams

When you arrive at Reines RV to pick out your new or used recreational vehicle, the sheer selection and number of options may overwhelm you. Consider starting your search with the fifth wheel trailers. These models all vary in features, but their basic design offers numerous benefits to small families and individuals.

Extra Space With A Shorter Body

Towing a very long trailer increases the likelihood of swaying and loss of control. However, it can be hard to fit the entire family in comfortably unless you tow something large. Fifth wheels feature an overhanging extension that sits over the bed of the hauling vehicle. This creates sleeping or storage space without lengthening the body, keeping most models very compact. Some still reach up to 45 feet, but they often offer at least six feet of length in the front as well.

Stability While Driving

Any RV will be stable and still when properly parked. However, many trailers and other tow-behind models sway or swing as they go down the road. This can make it hard to drive straight as well, especially when the trailer is quite large and heavy. Maneuvering up or down narrow mountain roads is easier with a fifth wheel because of the design’s namesake. The literal fifth wheel sits near or under the hitch and helps stabilize the trailer in turns.

No Engine Or Transmission Maintenance

While you will still need to keep your towing vehicle in tip top shape, your fifth wheel itself won’t feature any moving parts to break down. Small mechanisms like the leveling jacks are easily replaced if they do break. In a pinch, you could buy a new towing vehicle while on the road and avoid being stranded due to engine problems. There is no need for a long delay during repairs when you can just swap vehicles and keep the fifth wheel instead.

Luxury

Most fifth wheel trailers at Reines RV are quite luxurious and well equipped. You will really feel like you are at home or in a comfortable hotel when camping in the wilderness. Large screen televisions, full kitchens, and bathtubs make these trailers more than just basic equipment and housing for a road trip.

Inside, you’ll be able to relax in the calming and luxurious atmosphere. There is a booth dinette, fireplace, and elegant corian countertops.

A Look at the Forest River FR3 Class A Motorhome

Reines RV Forest River FR3 Class A

A Class A motorhome can be a great investment if you’re looking to live the full-on RV lifestyle, or if you just want to treat yourself to a really great motorhome in which to take the summers off.

The Forest River FR3 is a great motorhome whether you’re a first time RVer or looking to upgrade or replace an older rig. Here’s what you need to know about the FR3:

31′ 4″

Depending on when you read this, it may vary by make and model, but at thirty one feet and four inches long, the FR3 isn’t a cozy little camper, it’s a yacht on wheels. This is why it’s not really for everyone. If you’re looking for an economy model, look elsewhere. The FR3 is for those who will accept no less than the utmost in luxury when on the road. Of course, if you’re looking to become a fulltime RVer, the FR3 is just the right price and size for a permanent home on wheels.

Collapsible Furniture

A really great thing about the interior design of the FR3 is the collapsible furniture. Even in a roomier RV, furniture options can be limited, and quarters can be a little cramped when you have a bunch of chairs and tables that you don’t really need. The collapsible furniture in the FR3 means that you have space when you need it, and seats and tables when you don’t. It’s really the best of both worlds.

A Full Bluetooth Enabled Entertainment System

From the DVD player to the 12-volt radio and the thirty two inch flat screen television, the FR3 offers a great entertainment system for when you’re ready to take a day off the road and chill out with some movies, or you just want to cruise to some great tunes.

For a full-time RVer, you really do want more than a comfortable camper to cruise around in, you want a full on motorhome, something that you can live comfortably in. That’s what the FR3 offers. Come see it today at Reines RV Center!
