New material could replace wood in new RVs

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/business/s_518189.html PittsburghLive.com features a story on a lightweight thermoplastic composite material that could soon be used in RV construction.

Made from woven glass fibers and plastic, Versitex is lighter than wood, which will go a long way to making newer RVs more fuel efficient.

Shiny new teardrop trailer brings back memories

BornRich.org features an entry about the Sundance Teardrop RV, a shiny teardrop trailer that brings back memories of the early days of RVing. The Sundance features a polished aluminum exterior that gleams mirror-bright, an all-maple hatchback galley (with a Formica counter...of course) and sleeping room for two. While the style is old fashioned, the price tag is not. The Sundance will set you back about $24,000.
