Loon Lake
Oregon RV Resort Adds Deluxe Yurts
APRIL 6, 2019
Loon Lake Lodge and RV Resort in Reedsport, Ore., just a few miles from the Oregon Coast, has added four deluxe yurts.
The deluxe yurts are located in the upper-forested area of the resort, near the lodge. The heavy canvas circular exterior provides the atmosphere of a tent, yet the interior is furnished with a trundle bed plus bunk beds to accommodate up to four people. The yurts have air conditioners and heaters, a counter top refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot and bed linens.
The two-mile-long lake is surrounded by mountains with Douglas Fir trees that protect the recreation lake from the winds often blowing on the Oregon Coast.
At the on-site Loon Lake Marina and Water Sports, resort guests can rent Sea-Doos and ski boats to traverse the lake with speed and skill, or a canoe, kayak, stand-up paddleboard or pontoon boat for a more mellow lake trip, including a journey along the lake’s feeder creek.
In addition to the deluxe yurts, locations near the lake have yurts that accommodate two in a queen-size bed. The resort also offers cabins and cottages, some with full kitchens, RV sites, plus motel rooms.
The 40-mile long ocean dunes, reaching up to 500 feet, offer opportunities for ATV riders, sandboarders and tour rides in sand dune buggies. The Winchester Bay Lighthouse and Reedsport Discovery Center are points of interest and numerous hiking trails explore the Umpqua River and lakes along the coast.

Black Book Sees Truck Prices Decline
by: RV PRO Staff
A Black Book Market Insights report showed that truck segments are experiencing a steeper decline in value than cars. Out of all truck segments, the compact luxury crossover/SUV group saw the highest depreciation, dropping in value by minus 1.52 percent on the week.
“Demand has slowed over the holidays as expected and trucks have taken on their steepest decline of the year,” said Anil Goyal, senior VP of automotive valuation and analytics.
Here’s what Black Book had to show by the numbers:
Volume-weighted, overall car segment values decreased by 0.41 percent last week, lower than the average weekly decrease of 0.61 percent in values over the previous four weeks.
The full-size, near-luxury and luxury segments received the highest weekly depreciation rates at 0.61 percent to 0.65 percent.
Volume-weighted, overall truck segment (including pickups, SUVs, and vans) values decreased by 0.68 percent last week, highest weekly depreciation rate this year.
The compact luxury crossover/SUV segment decreased in value at the highest rate among all the truck segments. Five segments, nearly seven, decline more than one percentage point.



RV Health Offers Virtual Clinic to Industry

by: RV PRO Staff
RV Health is a telehealth program for RVers on the road meant to act as a primary care physician.
Monthly plans start as low as $24 per month for the entire family. This program allows users to access a team of medical professionals through a virtual clinic.
RV Health also can serve as a primary care physician through phone or video consultations. While RV Health is not an insurance plan, it provides network access to health care solutions including prescriptions, vision care, dental, hearing, labs and patient advocacy.
In addition, RV Heath gives users remote access to a specialist and specialist referrals, and can connect them with on-call doctors 24/7 in every state, with no limitation on usage and no additional consultation fees for speaking with a primary care or internal medicine physician.
“I was looking for options being self-employed and also a full-time RVer,” said RV Health subscriber Jonathan Hodges. “What is available for us just wasn’t fully meeting the need, but this gives my family more peace of mind knowing a doctor is just a phone call away regardless of our location.”
RV Health is also available as an employee benefit for employers within the RV industry.
