4 Ways to Save at the Gas Pump 

Gas prices soar in the summer. This is something that many people have become accustomed to when visiting the gas pumps during the summer months. As campers, we know this all too well. We fill up to drive to our favorite vacation spots and cringe as the bill climbs higher and higher! Whether you're filling up the RV or the car, here are 4 tips that can save you some money at the pumps:

1. Pump on slow: Gas pumps have 3 settings when pumping: high, medium, and slow. If you pump on slow, it minimizes the amount of vapors that come through the hose which guarantees that you get more gas for your money.

2. Fill up when you're still half full. When your tank still has gas in it, it minimizes the amount of air in the tank, which leaves less room for the gas to evaporate.


3. Fill up at the coldest possible time of day. Although the heat may be difficult to avoid during the summer, filling up during the coolest parts of the day (or night) will ensure that you get the most gas for your money. The colder the gas is, the more dense it is. Gas expands the warmer it gets, so filling up when it is hot, may mean that you're not getting the full gallon of gas that you are paying for.


4. If you see a gas truck filling up the station, find a different station to fill up. The gas truck will be stirring up dirt in the gas in the underground tanks. Dirt in your gas tank is never a good thing. You're paying for gas, not dirt!

These tricks may not save you exponential amounts of money, but when all is said and done, those dollars add up! Your wallet will be sure to thank you! Read Article

  • Playhouse #2 SOLD 
  1. Payment must be made by check or cash.
  2. We will load the Playhouse onto your trailer, but it is your responsibility from there.
  6. We will not hold the units, they will be sold to the first person who makes payment and must be picked up within 2 weeks.  
Please email if interested.   

interior To make way for our new snack bar, Normandy Farms is selling their Kamper's Kitchen snack bar. BEST OFFER! It is a fully functional, approximately 400 square foot, 8x40' kitchen. The park model is on wheels and can be pulled away with a truck.
