Good Sam club creating RV storage network
LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. — Good Sam, an organization of recreational vehicle owners, has created the Good Sam RV Storage Network.
The goal of this new nationwide network, according to a news release, is to recognize RV storage facilities that provide high standards of service and amenities and serve as a liaison between the small business RV storage owner and the broader RV community.
“We are always looking for ways to make the RV lifestyle easier for our Good Sam Members and RV’ers everywhere,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World Holdings Inc. “By creating a nationwide network of RV storage facilities and working with these facilities to provide additional value-add services to our members, we will make it easier for RV’ers to access storage facilities in their area that best suits their needs and provide RV storage owners access to new customers. For over 50 years, we have been connecting RV’ers with RV parks and campgrounds through our Good Sam Park Network. The creation of a parallel network of RV storage facilities throughout the country compliments our Good Sam Park network and is just another way for us to utilize our resources to support the RV community. The listings of our Good Sam RV Storage facilities will be included in our Good Sam Guide Series publication this fall, as well as on GoodSam.com for easy access.”
Good Sam representatives will soon visit RV storage facilities around the country to discuss the program and establish an initial rating system based on characteristics, such as security, access, cleanliness, and other amenities. The organization stated in its news release that RV storage facilities in the U.S. and Canada will have the ability to be designated a “Good Sam RV Storage Facility” and join the network if they meet and maintain certain criteria, including offering value-add services or discounts to Good Sam members.
Ford recalls 240,000 vehicles
DEARBORN, Mich. — Ford is recalling over 240,000 SUVs and cars worldwide because a suspension part can fracture and increase the risk of a crash.
The recall covers the Ford Flex, Taurus police car, Taurus SHO and Lincoln MKT from the 2013 through 2018 model years. Most of the recalled vehicles are in North America.
Ford says if the suspension moves a lot on the vehicles, the rear toe links can fracture. Toe links help keep the rear suspension stable and the tires on the pavement.
The company says it’s not aware of any crashes or injuries caused by the problem in this batch of recalled vehicles.
Dealers will replace toe links on both sides with new ones that are stronger. Owners will be notified starting March 2.
