Would you make a good Workamper?


Many RVers we talk to have the dream of one day being able to leave their jobs, friends, family, and basically the day-to-day life they’ve been living, in order to travel in their RV to destinations unknown. Sure, many folks do wait until retirement and do just that,  staying on the road for months, or even years at a time.

What if you don’t want to wait, but you still need income? Well, some people are turning to Workamping. The short version is that these individuals, couples, and sometimes families travel  Recreational Vehiclefrom place to place and find work in exchange for a free campsite, utilities, wages  or some combination of all.

They’ll typically find positions at privately owned campgrounds, RV resorts, seasonal work (i.e. Christmas trees, fall hay rides, pumpkins, etc.), state and national parks, and even some retail stores. You’ll usually find that Workampers are couples, including many retirees, but it’s not uncommon to find single individuals as well.

Although there are some year-round Workamping jobs, most are seasonal, which fits in just fine with the folks that fill the jobs since most people enjoy the travel that comes along with Workamping.

If this is sounds like something that might interest you, probably the best place to start is on the Workamper website,  Workamper.com.

Good luck if you decide to look into this.

Until next time… Happy RVing!

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. She holds a B.A. degree in Journalism from Rider University, and Post-Baccalaureate New Jersey Teacher Dual Certification: Elementary K-8 and Secondary 9-12 from Rowan University, Summa Cum Laude.

Mike Cahill White Horse RV Center Sales
Mike Cahill – Sales

Mike joined the Galloway team just recently, but has over 12 years RV dealership experience in both sales and finance. 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. Since the age of 14, when Billy Ray began working in a campground, he’s  been around RVs in some capacity. He even began selling RVs at the young age of 17! 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.

Now that you’ve met most of the team, we hope you’ll stop in and see us!

Two Great Locations to Serve You
With 60+ RVs in-stock, there’s plenty to choose from at our Galloway location, however if you don’t find what you’re looking for in Galloway,  remember to check out our Williamstown dealership also, located on Route 42 in Williamstown!

Until next time.. Happy RVing!

What a pain in the gas!


This story was originally posted on 3/8/11, just about a year ago. It seems like every year the media and the powers that be that control gasoline prices  feel the need to put a scare into us regarding gas prices. With all the recent media coverage, we thought it would be relevant to re-post this story.

Sticker Shock at the Gas Pump … Gas prices continue to climb … Gas prices: How high will they go?

Jeez, you can’t turn on the TV, surf the web, or have a conversation with someone without the topic of gas prices coming up. A media feeding frenzy.

Now, don’t get us wrong, we’re all for lower gas prices and appreciate how hard everyone works for their money, but how much does this really effect our RVers out there? If you’re a full-timer doing a lot of driving, obviously there is a pretty big impact. However, these folks represent a very small segment of the RV community, so how about everyone else.

For a more typical scenario, here are  figures based on towing a travel trailer or fifth wheel,  your tow vehicle getting 12 miles per gallon, and taking a 250 mile trip.

At $2.50 per gallon, the cost to travel 250 miles is $52.08

At $3.50 per gallon, the cost to travel 250 miles is $72.92
(a $20.84 difference)

At $4.00 per gallon, the cost to travel 250 miles is $83.33
(a $31.25 difference)

So, as you can see, even if gas gets as high as $4.00 per gallon, your trip is only costing you an additional $31.25.  For most motorhomes, depending on their mpg, the cost will be a little higher, but you get the idea. If you’re staying fairly close to home and you factor in all the other ways you save by traveling in your RV, the increase becomes a little less painful.

You can also do a few simple things to help increase your mpg, such as staying close to the speed limit, accelerating slowly instead of “punching it”, trying to avoid heavy braking, and keeping your tires to their proper pressure.

As far as finding the cheapest gas in your area, if you haven’t already, try GasBuddy.com. They have mobile apps available also. Please remember not to get too carried away with the price and end up traveling out of your way to save a penny or two!

It’s also worth mentioning that from what we’ve been able to gather, these prices are NOT being driven up by any type of shortage, but by the “speculators” who invest in gas, so this situation could be very short-lived. What ever happened to supply and demand??

Now get in your RV, go to your favorite place, and forget about this nonsense!!

Until next time.. Happy RVing!

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!

Kids Corner – Get ready for Spring Camping!


Now is the perfect time to get ready for Spring Camping Season! We’re  all looking forward to some sun and outdoor fun,  so here are a few ideas we came up with to get your family excited for your first (or next) camping trip in 2011!

RV Camping Checklist

Camper’s Check List:
This is something easy and fun to do with kids of all ages! Using a sheet of paper, list all the items you will need for your trip,  leaving a space next to each item to be checked off when it’s loaded onto your RV. Use one list for the whole family, or have each person make their own list of what’s important to them so nothing is left behind. Having the lists is a big help, plus  a little teamwork always comes in handy to make sure you have everything for everyone!

Learn-a-Little:Look up your destination
Another thing you can do before heading out on your next trip is to grab an atlas, computer or book  where you can look up information on the places you’re  going to visit.  Have your kids  list all of the things they are interested in doing and seeing,  and try to learn a little about the area you are headed to!

Keep a journal on your tripBring  A Journal:
A great way to document your trip is to bring a journal for each person, or use one for the whole family.  Fill it with sayings from the trip, new or different things learned, photos or pictures drawn, memories of the adventure, and anything else you come across. You’ll find that a journal will be a great conversation piece full of great memories of  your time together that you can enjoy for years to come!

A treat for the road or home!

With St. Patrick’s Day fast approaching, we thought it would be a good time to share this recipe.
