American Coach November Blog Issue2

Our thanks to you: REV and American Coach thank you for choosing the distinctively American standard in luxury coaches.

We believe owning an American Coach should be a relationship, a deepening bond of connection that rewards you with great experiences in travel and rewards us with your long-term loyalty. This isn't something we take for granted, so in this season of thanksgiving, we say "thank you" for making us your choice in luxury travel. Connect with us on Facebook or Instagram and share with us what makes you thankful and use the tag #ACThankful in your post!

You set the climate: Destinations to warm your inspiration.

No doubt we've been experiencing some unseasonably warm weather in most of the U.S., but like it or not, temps are trending down, so here's a destination to warm your soul (and your bones). The hot springs of Utah. Scattered around Salt Lake City are amazingly diverse hot soaks. Some are all-natural like the Meadow Hot Springs, located in, you guessed it, a meadow.

Other springs have been carefully augmented for ease of access. The Homestead Crater even offers scuba diving in its enormous geothermal pool with water temps in the mid-90's. Scuba enthusiasts from all across the U.S. come here often. You'll need to make reservations first, but it is worth a visit. Soak, swim or snorkel (or all three), hot springs are great destinations to warm your inspiration.

Add on some comfort: Curated items that make for maximum relaxation.

Add on a wine chiller. It's a great way to keep a full stock of your favorites at just the right temperature and on-hand for when friends arrive. Look for features like an illuminated interior and digital temperature display, a door lock and secure holders for the bottles. And make sure to plan placement by measuring dimensions before purchasing one.

Perhaps refreshment of the hotter variety suits your fancy, and parking at the local coffee joint isn't an option. In this case, you may want to install an espresso machine and use it to make all manner of coffee confections, right in the comfort of your American Coach kitchen. Popular models are compact enough to make them great for RVs and include their own water tank, a foaming system, and features for easy cleanup. We can almost smell the sweet aroma right now!

Mile markers: Features that make for long-range comfort.

Depending on how far you travel and where you choose to stay in your American Coach, sometimes your favorite spot may not be a hotspot for the Internet or TV. Fortunately, there are a wide range of technologies and equipment to upgrade your signal—either for WiFi, satellite or TV. You can add on a WiFi booster for exceptional range outside your RV to stream movies or video conferencing. Maybe you like to watch the big game on a big screen. No problem! There are TVs made specifically for outdoor use that deliver brighter picture and are enclosed in more durable, weather-resistant housings.

If your coach has automatic climate control, levelling, awnings, door locks, or other automatic functions, you can control many of them from your smartphone with a WiFi gateway. This add-on feature allows for control of multiple features and functions, right from your fingertips! Time to let your inner tech-lover run free!
