In this episode, we visit with two of the owners of Jamaica Beach RV Resort on Galveston Island, Ron Gustafson and Aric Salois. Ron and Aric share what it's like working together in a 3-generation family-owned and operated business, what life is normally like at their destination RV resort on the Texas Gulf Coast, and the unprecedented challenges they faced during Winter Storm Uri. We rode out the storm in our RV at Jamaica Beach RV Resort. We share the hightlights about how we prepared for the storm, how that preparation worked out and a few things we learned along the way. To see more of the details on how we prepared, the experience of being in the RV for 84 hours without power in freezing temps (and a week without potable water), and more tips for RVing in freezing weather, check out our Episode 6 Show Notes.Subscribe to our weekly Newsletter to get updates on our newest content and other interesting stories: https://rvtexasyall.com/newsletter-sign-up.

Larry talks about what it was like growing up in the RV industry, how things have changed, and what he expects to see in the future. Topper's RVs is a family-owned and operated RV dealership located just northwest of Houston, Texas. The small business was started by Larry's Granddad, continued by his Dad, and now Larry.

Larry also shares what it's been like owning an RV dealership during COVID, his thoughts on the future of RV shows, and what customers can expect from manufacturers and dealers going forward.

As a homeschool mom, our favorite year of homeschooling was the year we spent studying Texas history and traveling to several museums and historically significant sites in Texas. I so enjoyed your story of the history of the state park system of Texas. One of my favorite things about so many of our state parks is the CCC structures and seeing the unique architecture and building materials so I have really enjoyed your video reviews of these State parks!!
