TRAVERSE CITY, Mich., Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ — Camping today isn’t what it used to be. A family of four squeezed into a station wagon packed full with the bare necessities, food and clothing. Today’s RVs are more comfortable and spacious than ever. They are light, well-equipped and technologically advanced. What used to be luxuries, like fully equipped kitchens and baths, and central heating/air conditioning, are now standard on most models.

Popular high-tech options available in today’s RVs include automatic leveling systems, electronic mapping (Global Positioning Systems), heated water and holding tanks, dual-purpose appliances (combination washer-dryers and TV-VCRs) and closed-circuit, rear-view cameras for backing up. Preview the latest innovations at the Northwest Michigan Camper & RV Show at the Grand Traverse County Civic Center.
