If you’re looking for a spacious fifth wheel with plenty of room to stretch out and all the amenities of home, then put the 2021 Alliance Paradigm 310RL on your short list to check out at General RV.

The open layout of the Alliance Paradigm 310RL includes a beautiful kitchen, living and dining area with a beautiful kitchen island in the center.

Before we dive into this RV floorplan, let’s talk about the manufacturer. Alliance is one of the newest RV manufacturers, but they already have quite a devoted fan base and active Facebook community. Founded by RV industry veterans in 2019, the company’s mission is simple: Do the right thing! They aim to provide customers with the best RV ownership experience by fostering long-term alliances with their owners and dealer partners, exceeding expectations every step of the way.

One way Alliance does this is by creating RVs that are designed around the needs of real RV owners. For example, while working on the Paradigm 310RL, the company reached out to campers via social media and asked them which features could improve their RVing experience. Then, engineers incorporated many of those suggestions in the final design.

Public or Private Campgrounds: How to choose the right RV campground for you

When making RV campground reservations, you might be surprised by the number of choices you have to consider. There’s location, of course, but you likely also want to balance that with cost, site options and amenities. Understanding the differences between private and public campgrounds, like those operated by county, state or federal governments can help to narrow down your search, too.

What’s the difference between private and public campgrounds?

Private campgrounds are operated by independent hosts. They can be owned by local residents who live on site or by private businesses, like KOA or Jellystone RV parks. They typically have a number of RV camping options available including sites with full hookups.

State and national campgrounds (also known as public campgrounds) are owned by the governments and operated by state and federal employees. These campgrounds are typically located within designated parks and forests. Most offer an array of choices from RV campsites to rustic and backcountry camping opportunities.
