    Our Town Okeechobee Location

    Our second location is located in the City of Okeechobee, Florida.  Last week we learned about our Stuart, FL location.  This week I want to share with you about the City of Okeechobee.  The Okeechobee store was opened in 2012.  Situated right next to the largest KOA in America, it was a perfect spot for an RV Dealership, Parts and Service.

    Lake Okeechobee is known for fishing.  The “Speckled Perch Capital of the World” The City of Okeechobee is home to “old values, new visions” .  The fourth Saturday in July, there is “The day of the Cowboy event” this event includes a cattle drive through the town how exciting to see a cattle drive through town!

    With two different stores we can offer the same great product, which includes some of the most trusted names in the industry! Check out our website for all of our manufacturers.  
     

    The RV industry has increased over 62% in the last 20 years. The rvia.org site  states that there are now 11.2 million RV owning households.  The age bracket is almost split down the middle with those over age 55 as well as under 55. The significant gross group that has gained major interest in the RV market is 18 to 34 year olds. They make up 22% of the market. The rvia.org website is a great resource when you want to learn more about the industry. There is also projections stating that 9.6 million households intend on buying an RV in the next 5 years!

    Here at Florida Outdoors RV Country, convenient location right next to the largest KOA in America. 

    Okeechobee is a place where most people like the relaxed laid back lifestyle.  Having our second location in the middle of the State of Florida, allows us to cater to the many RV parks that are surrounding Lake Okeechobee, home to over 130 RV parks in Okeechobee county. It was just naturally a great place to cater to the #RVLifestyle.

    At this location you will walk into a warm welcome.  As you might have heard inventory is low because of a national shortage we are doing our best to keep items in stock.  Our manufactures are working hard to get the units that we have on order, down to us.  We are always welcoming consignments to both of our locations. This brings in a unique inventory to both of our locations.  We also receive new units weekly.  If you are looking for a specific unit let us know what you are trying to find and we would be happy to put you into our data base to contact you as soon as it arrives on our lot. 

    Some of the cool units that have come in these past months do not last long.  Everyone is looking for their perfect unit. So if you see a unit you love don’t wait!

    To find out what is available for when you want to travel you can visit sites such as floridastateparks.reserveamerica.com.  Many RV ownership studies have revealed why so many people are choosing the RV lifestyle these days it is because of the ease of taking more weekend vacations throughout the year.  The average days that an RV is used by the owner has stayed a steady 20 days per year.  Now that more people are working remotly this number is expected to go up to 25 days for new RV ownership. As I have said in previous newsletters, there are recreational RV’s for the Outdoor RV enthusiasts known as toy haulers.  ATV owners  will love the ease of the ramp in a toy hauler.  These different units we have in stock could be the unit you have been searching for!

    Fifth Wheels offer almost all the comforts of a house.  Fifth Wheels are towable units and come in lengths from 25 to 45 feet. The layouts that are offered are very diverse!  Finding the Fifth Wheels that fits your #rvlifestyle will be an exciting adventure. From bunkhouse models to front living rooms you are sure to find the perfect match for you and your family.

    Some fun knowledge from Wikipedia: The term fifth wheel comes from a similar coupling used on four-wheel horse-drawn carriages and wagons. ... A wheel would be placed on the rear frame section of the truck, which at the time had only four wheels, making the additional wheel the "fifth wheel". 

    Come check out what we have in our two locations.  We are sure to have something for your #summertime #travels
