As the dog days of summer have wound down, Labor Day has come and gone, kids are back in school and fall is just around the corner, many people think their days of camping excursions into Michigan’s woodlands have come to an end.
Autumn is actually a popular time to get out into nature. The heat of summer can be too much for some people, so when August comes to a close and September ushers in a bit of briskness to the air, heading out to campgrounds and parks in an RV is still a viable way of getting away from it all (with a few creature comforts, of course).
And that’s a little easier to do in the fall. Summertime at campgrounds, beaches and parks can be noisy, crowded and messy. Camping in the fall is usually much quieter, with less people, since most of us have used up our vacation time while the kids are on summer break. And there are still plenty of reasons to pack up the RV to head into the woods.
Or maybe camping and hunting aren’t your thing. Or Michigan winters. And who could blame you? Michigan is notorious for long, cold and snowy winters, sometimes starting in October and lasting until April, or even May. (How does that joke go? Michigan seasons are winter, more winter, still winter and road construction.) So instead you want to get into that RV and travel with the Canadian geese to warmer climes.
All of these reasons make now a great time to look into buying an RV. Several dealers are dealing with overstock, offering discount and wholesale prices, making fall vacations an attractive option for families. Dolney RV at 1171 S. Huron Rd. is holding it’s September Sell Down sale Friday, September 7 – Sunday, September 9 with a little bit of everything, from RVs to RC cars to parts and accessories and more. The business is offering extended hours, from 9 – 7, Saturday from 9 – 5 and Sunday 11 – 4.
This year, Dolney RV is donating a portion of its sales to Covenant Healthcare’s neonatal intensive care unit. Dolney’s son recently had a baby transferred to the unit, so the issue strikes close to home.
“Luckily it was a brief stay at the NICU. The staff was so great and caring. We try to work with a local charity or fundraiser every time we have one of these events, so it was close to me at that point.”
The company is donating $50 from every RV sale, with a set minimum of $500 donated. Games and raffles will be held during the event to also raise money for Covenant.

One of the best things about campgrounds is that they allow families and groups of friends to gather and spend quality time together in a comfortable environment. Communal campfires and group picnic areas give everyone the chance to catch up and bond, while individual campsites and cabins offer much needed downtime and privacy. If you...
