Getting to know Galloway


White Horse RV Center's New Galloway Store

White Horse RV is back on the White Horse Pike!
With the opening of our second location at  309 E. White Horse Pike, we’ve finally returned to the White Horse Pike after a 15+ year hiatus. We’re excited to have a facility that can now conveniently serve our customers and campgrounds along the NJ coast in Atlantic, Cape May, Monmouth and Ocean counties, as well as those with easy access to the Garden State Parkway, such as  Middlesex, Union and all the way north to Bergen county!

If you haven’t visited White Horse RV’s new Galloway dealership since it opened back in September of 2011, you wouldn’t recognize the place now!  Our new Galloway team, under the guidance of  General Manager Heather Shannon, has been hard at work getting things up to date in order to meet the high level of service White Horse RV has become renowned for. We thought this would be a good opportunity for you to meet some of the Galloway Team.

Heather Shannon – General Manager

Heather joined her family’s  White Horse RV business back in 1994, working primarily in sales, but filling in occasionally in other areas of the business over the years.  When the time came to name a General Manager for the new Galloway location, the decision was easy.

Heather grew up camping as a young girl, and has helped White Horse RV grow into one of the regions biggest RV dealerships. “Our goal has always been to make sure our customers end up with the right RV for their lifestyle, it’s up to us to ask the right questions and really get to know our customers.”

Heather has received numerous professional certifications and awards including Winnebago Peak Performer Certification in 2007 and 2008, Jayco Masters Achievement in 2000, 2005, 2007, and 2011, Fleetwood Training Achievement in 2005, Newmar Training Achievement in 2004, Holiday Rambler Training Achievement in 2000, and being a Top Sales Winner for Jayco in 1998.

Mike says he likes to sneak away and play some golf when possible, but with a wife and 6 children to consider, it’s hard to believe he gets out much! In the summer you’ll  find Mike, his wife Biz and the kids on the beaches of LBI as much as possible, and enjoying all their kids many activities throughout the rest of the year. Originally from Monmouth County, he now resides in South Jersey, but remains an avid NY Giants and NY Rangers fan.

Billy Ray Owneburg, Jr. – Sales

Billy Ray Owneburg, Jr.After a recent hiatus to travel around the country, Billy Ray is back putting his 20+ years RV experience to work with White Horse RV in Galloway.

With all that experience, not to mention a great rapport with his customers, Billy Ray has been a great addition to the White Horse RV Galloway team! Stop in and say hi!

Rodger Brown – Service

With over 30 years in the RV business, including a background as a dealership owner, shop foreman, and service manager, when it comes to questions about your RV, Rodger would be a great place to start. A former machinist by trade, Rodger has extensive training in the RV industry as well, including RVIA certification, Draw-Tite, Reese, Norcold, Suburban, Atwood, Dometic, and Cummings certification, and many more!  Rodger has lived his whole life in Atlantic County and is an avid camper, with Hatteras being his favorite getaway (he has to get out of Atlantic County sometimes, doesn’t he!).

Joe Kuhn

Joe Kuhn – Parts

Joe is retired from both the  Monroe Township Police Department as the Officer in Charge of the Detective Bureau and the U.S. Army as a Sergeant Major. He is also a certified helicopter mechanic. As you can imagine, based on his careers, Joe likes to keep active. He also loves RVing, so getting into the RV business seemed like it would be a great fit… and it has been. Joe and his wife of almost 40 years own a Jayco Seneca 35HD and have been RVing for almost 10 years. In his spare time, you will find Joe riding and repairing old Harley’s or at the shooting range where he is an expert at repairing all types of firearms.

We will not be undersold!


When shopping for an RV, we’re sure you’ve run across some dealers boldly stating “WE WILL NOT BE UNDERSOLD!”. Given that there are many, many variables that need to be factored in when pricing a coach, we’ve always found it puzzling when we run across someone making this claim.

First of all, since manufacturers typically have territories assigned to their dealers, in most cases you will have to go outside your market just to shop the same model. Even with that, there are many other intangibles that go into the price of an RV. How much was shipping from the manufacturer; how thoroughly does the dealer prep the RV; how long has a particular unit been on the lot; are there any manufacturer incentives;  plus many more. And that’s not even including trade-ins!

So you see, while some types of retailers can make a claim like that (electronics, mattresses, home supply stores, to name a few) it’s just not that straight-forward in the RV business. At White Horse RV, we’ve been serving customers in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, and throughout the United States for over 38 years. We recommend that you do your research, whether online or in person, and when you come see us, we’ll give you a great deal and fantastic service. In short, the old adage about an informed customer is our best customer applies here.

So how do you feel about “We Will Not Be Undersold”? Take our quick poll and let us know!

Thanks for stopping by and reading our blog. The next time you’re in the market for a new or pre-owned RV, be sure stop by and see us, or check out our extensive inventory online.

Until next time…
Happy RVing!

Catching up with Jayco


So, what’s the story behind “America’s Most Liveable RVs”?

Founded in 1968 by Lloyd and Bertha Bontrager, Jayco was born on a small farm in Middlebury, Indiana, with a vision of building a better RV and creating a company where everyone would be treated as “family”.

Innovation from the very beginning.

Mr. Bontrager’s very first prototype camping trailer included a unique lift system that is patented and still in use today. More than 40 years later,  innovation continues to thrive at Jayco, evidenced by last week’s announcement that they had become the first major RV manufacturer to become 100% green certified.

Jayco in 2010

Today, led by Lloyd Bontrager’s son Derald, Jayco is the largest privately owned RV manufacturer in North America, with almost 2000 employees, and countless Jayco RVs on the road and in campgrounds. Even with all of this success, they’ve  still been able to maintain a very strong family atmosphere. So much so, that as a Jayco dealer, we feel very much part of the Jayco family, and are often contributing ideas to product development based on our own experiences and those shared by our customers.

Come see for yourself.

If you’re ever in the Middlebury, IN area, be sure to stop by the Jayco Visitors Center. Situated in a renovated 1880s barn, the Visitors Center is adjacent to the general Jayco offices and houses Jayco memorabilia and merchandise.

You’ll also have an opporunity to walk through a display of new products, and take a free tour of their towable manufacturing facility. These factory tours are normally conducted Monday through Thursday at 12 p.m.  Tours of the motorized facilities are  by appointment only.  Be sure to call ahead at 574-825-5861 for the most current tour information.

Can’t make it in person?

Don’t worry. Here’s a short video showing how the Jayco RVs are built. Notice that they make just about everything themselves, including the cabinetry and furniture!


Happy Earthday – Jayco Goes 100% Green!


TJayco is now 100% green certifiedoday, Jayco announced that all of their products, which includes the Jayco, Starcraft, and Entegra brands, have been “green certified” by TRA Certification Inc.

With this announcement, Jayco, Inc. becomes the first major RV manufacturer to become 100% green certified. Their product lines include some of the most popular RV brands in America today such as the Jayco Jay Flight and Autumn Ridge by Starcraft. TRA Certification Inc. is a third-party, internationally accredited certification organization.

What does “green certified” mean?

TRA has four levels of certification for RV manufacturers:  Bronze, Silver, Gold and Emerald.  Most of the Jayco products received the prestigious Emerald rating in three out of five categories (water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and operation and maintenance) and Gold ratings in the other two categories (resource efficiency and energy efficiency).

And how about that Jayco Skylark!

Emerald Certified Skylark

Emerald Certified Skylark

The Skylark travel trailer was awarded an Emerald Level Performance Rating which is the highest rating available.   So, why is the Skylark considered “greener” than conventionally built travel trailers in its class? This was accomplished by offering standard features aimed at energy efficiency such as LED lighting systems, which consume less than one-fourth the electricity of conventional lighting, and lasts about 10 times as long. That’s much better than even CFL lighting! The Skylark also uses double-paned acrylic tinted windows, Azdel™ Super Lite substrate in all lamination, plus  other “sustainable technology” techniques to help make the Skylark more energy-efficient. The Skylark is also light enough to be towed by most SUVs and minivans.

Inside Jayco – Green Certification

Here is a short video with more information about their green efforts:

According to Jayco, in 2009 alone,  their recycling efforts and conservation programs saved over 28,000 trees and 14,000 cubic yards of landfill space, plus enough energy to power more than 600 family homes for an entire year.

Our take

In this day and age where many companies mislead consumers by calling themselves “green” or “pink” or whatever the cause may be, we love that Jayco did it right by having their products certified by a legitimate, third-party company and not just saying they’re “green”. It’s also worth noting that many of the manufacturing processes that are called “green” today, are processes that Jayco began doing in the late 1980’s. They are truly pioneers in this area.

Know your ABC’s (and TT’s and 5W’s too!)


For a seasoned RVer, terms like “Class A”, “Travel Trailer“, “Fifth Wheel”, etc. are second nature. No matter what type of rig you own, it doesn’t take long before you’ve become friendly with people who own all different types of RVs and have a chance to explore the many different types, makes and models out there.

On the other hand, try talking RV jargon with a non-RVer and you might as well be speaking a foreign language! So, for those of you who are out there trying to learn about RVs, and have stumbled upon our blog, or for you experienced owners out there that are tired of explaining the different “types” of RVs to family and friends, we have this quick guide to the RV types for your reading pleasure.

Be sure to share this with your non-RVing friends, and soon they’ll be talkin the talk too!

Class A Motorhome

Winnebago Sightseer Class A Motorhome


The Class A’s are bus style motorhomes and come in both diesel and gas-powered versions.

While the amenities will vary greatly from brand to brand, in general most recent Class A motorhomes have a full kitchen and bath, bedroom, and centrally controlled heating and air-conditioning.

As recently as a few years ago, this type of RV was primarily thought of as one for retirees traveling the country. However, there are currently many manufacturers who offer floor plans that include bunk beds, perfect for families or grandkids! In higher end models, you’ll find a large number of luxury features that make it feel like you’re staying in our own custom home on wheels.

Driving one is surprisingly easy, once you get used to the size and learn a few tricks of the trade.

Class B Motorhomes

Also known as van campers

More commonly known as van campers, Class B motorhomes are built on van or flat panel truck shells. These types typically have accommodations for sleeping, as well as bathroom and kitchen facilities.

They are easy to drive in pretty much any setting and,  in some models, can reach full standing height (for most people) by raising the roof or dropping the floor.

Class C Motorhomes

Jayco Greyhawk Class C Motorhome

Jayco Greyhawk Class C Motorhome

Class C motorhomes are built on an automotive van frame, but have a wider body section attached to the cab. Most Class C motorhomes, like the Class A, come with a full kitchen, bath and bedroom.

One of the more distinctive features is the additional space over the cab area. This space is often used for more sleeping space or an entertainment center. These types come in a big variety of floor plans and offer something for everyone.

Since you’re closer to the ground, driving a Class C motorhome can feel more like driving a large pickup truck, than a motorhome. Some people are more comfortable with this.

Travel Trailers

Autumn Ridge Travel Trailer

Autumn Ridge Travel Trailer

Travel Trailers are pretty much self-explanatory, in that they are trailers that you tow behind your vehicle. That said, there is more to travel trailers than just that.

First of all, there is a very wide range in the size and weight from the smallest to the largest travel trailers. This is important to know since you need to have a vehicle that is capable of towing your trailer. In recent years, manufacturers have started to offer lighter weight models that can be towed using 6 cylinder vehicles. It is vital that you check with your local RV dealer to get their recommendations on how much your vehicle can tow.

As far as amenities are concerned, they will vary with size, but most will come with a full kitchen and bath. Sleeping accommodations will run the gamut depending on size.

Fifth Wheel

Jayco Designer Fifth Wheel

Jayco Designer Fifth Wheel

Fifth Wheels (or 5th Wheels) are similar to travel trailers as far as amenities go and the fact that you tow them, however, they are designed specifically to be towed by pick up trucks and require a special fifth wheel hitch installed in the bed of the truck.

With a raised forward section, this design gives the fifth wheel a bi-level floor plan that is unique to fifth wheels.

You’ll also find a fifth wheel in general, to be more spacious and have more storage available. The bi-level design also gives you more of a feeling of privacy. Many models come with a large picture window at the back of the unit. As with travel trailers, it’s important to talk to your local RV dealer to determine your towing vehicle’s capabilities.

Expandable Travel Trailer

Jay Feather Expandable Travel Trailer

Jay Feather Expandable Travel Trailer

The Expandable Travel Trailer is a cross between your standard travel trailer and a folding or pop-up camper. They are an enclosed structure like the travel trailer, but also have ends that tip out to sleeping accommodations.

The exp’s are typically lighter and less expensive than their travel trailer counterparts and many can be towed with a mid-sized family vehicle. Again, and we can not emphasize enough, you need to check with your local dealer regarding towing capacity.

Many campers who are taking their first steps into RVing choose an expandable to start out with.

Sport Utility RV/Toy Hauler

Jayco Octane Toy Hauler

Jayco Octane Toy Hauler

Toy haulers come as both travel trailers and fifth wheels. What differentiates them as toy haulers is that they have a “garage” to store your motorcycles, ATVs, and other “toys”. The garage  is separated by a wall from your living quarters.

Many also offer amenities unique to that type of lifestyle, such as storage tanks for gasoline. As is the case with standard travel trailers and fifth wheels, toy haulers come in a huge variety of sizes and floor plans. Again, I repeat, be sure to check your towing capabilities!

Some manufacturers offer toy haulers as Class A and Class C motorhomes as well.

The last thing worth mentioning here is a word about slideouts. A slideout, or slide, is a wall that moves outward to create more living space in your RV. The majority of RVs offer at least one slideout and can range from one small one, to one that runs the length of the unit, to ones that have up to four, all depending on the size and floor plan.

Well, that should do it. Hope this information helps you out.

Until next time, Happy RVing!

Getting to know the Damon Astoria Diesel Pusher


Astoria Diesel Pusher by Damon

The decision to carry a new model, especially a diesel pusher, is one that we do not take lightly.  In the past, we’ve carried some pretty high-priced pushers like the Dutch Star from Newmar. However, the majority of people we talked to over the past few years indicated they wanted a diesel pusher at a more affordable price.

The process to find such a product can be more difficult than you think. Our owners and sales manager attended numerous national trade shows, viewed dozens of products, talked to the many manufacturer reps, and “crunched” the numbers.  The goal was to find a diesel pusher that met our pricing criteria, without sacrificing quality. The Damon Astoria fits the bill perfectly.

Damon Astoria Kitchen

Although it’s considered an”entry level” diesel pusher and priced as low as many gas coaches, we think you’ll be impressed with the quality and luxury of the Astoria.

A few of the many features include:

  • Freightliner XC Raised Rail Chassis
  • 340-hp Cummins Engine with 660 ft lb of Torque
  • Solid Wood Raised Panel Cabinet Doors Throughout
  • Corian Solid Surface Kitchen Countertop, Range Cover, and Sink Covers
  • Dual 13.5 BTU Ducted Central Air Conditioning
  • 34,000 BTU Floor Ducted Electronic Ignition Furnace
  • 50-AMP, 120-volt service
  • Onan 6.0 kW Quiet Diesel Generator
  • Exterior GFCI Receptacle
  • Full Height shower with Door
  • And plenty more

Astoria Master Bedroom

We welcome you to come see the Astoria in person, or you can check it out online by viewing either our in-stock models, or in our virtual showroom!
