Visit Cullum and Maxey

Call us to set up a service appointment for your RV or stop by Cullum and Maxey Camping Center to walk through the many floor plans we have available if you are planning on upgrading or getting your first new RV this spring. Choose from motorized RVs, travel trailers, toy haulers, fifth wheels and more.


Recipes For the Road

When you’re looking for recipes for your road trip, you have more options if you have a motorized RV as you have access to the refrigerator. If you have a towable, you still have additional options as you can keep things that need to be refrigerated in a cooler; however, you still have to stop to get access to the goodies.

Depending on how much room you have in the tow vehicle, you could keep a cooler large enough for drinks and refrigerated snacks with you. Before you pack up the RV to head out, be sure you have it checked and if necessary, serviced, at Cullum and Maxey Camping Center.

Deviled Eggs with a Kick

  • 6 eggs, hard boiled and cooled
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon blackening seasoning or cayenne pepper

Mix everything except the eggs in a small bowl. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out the yolks and add them to the mayonnaise mixture. Smash the yolks with a fork and incorporate into the mayonnaise mixture. Spoon the mixture into the egg whites.

Garnish with paprika, bacon bits and chopped fresh parsley.

Never Fail Fudge

This is not an original recipe but it makes a great treat for road trips. Look for a brand of marshmallow fluff with the fudge recipe on it. This recipe doesn’t need to be refrigerated and it’s hard to mess it up. A couple tips make this recipe even easier to make.

Line the cake pan with foil. Coat the foil with a thin coating of spray grease or Crisco. Once the fudge has cooled and completely set, you can just lift the foil out of the pan to make it easier to cut the fudge into squares.

Cook the fudge according to the timer instead of the temperature. The longer you cook it, the harder it will be, so if you want something more like a soft candy bar, cook it about a minute longer.

You can add raisins and nuts seconds before the fudge is done cooking. Have any additions ready to pour in and mix – you’ll have to work fast so you don’t overcook the fudge.

On the other hand, if you have a large motorized RV and want to get something a bit smaller, you can trade it for a smaller motorized vehicle or if you just bought a new truck, a travel trailer or fifth wheel.

You may downsize if the kids have all grown up and moved away or you just wanted a smaller vehicle. This doesn’t stop you from enjoying yourself every now and then.
