A Look at the 2014 Keystone Avalanche Fifth Wheel

Screen Shot 2013-05-20 at 2.15.06 PMScreen Shot 2013-05-20 at 2.14.49 PM

The “RVer” lifestyle really doesn’t apply strictly to RV owners. There are plenty of RVers who drive a truck with a trailer attached, and a fifth wheel trailer can be just as great as any other option on the market, especially when it’s the 2014 Keystone Avalanche.

This new model will make you rethink the notion of how much luxury should cost. Though technically a regular old consumer grade model at just under $70,000, new, once you take a walk around inside the new Avalanche, you’ll wonder why it doesn’t cost twice that.

The authentic leather furniture package alone sets the interior apart from many RVs and trailers, but it’s really just the start. The cherry cabinet doors certainly make an impression, as well, and the free standing counter top wouldn’t be out of place in a million dollar New York penthouse apartment.

Of course how a trailer looks on the inside doesn’t matter so much if it doesn’t also feature everything that you could possibly need from a home on wheels. Beyond the stunning array of furniture and design, you also get a dual air conditioner package, a forty inch LED TV, which is nicer than many of us have in our houses, and a fireplace, if you can believe that.

At 37 feet, the trailer is roomy enough for any individual or couple, even with a dog or a cat, and with the hideaway bed in the sofa, big enough for a guest or two, as well.

The 2014 Avalanche really defies a lot of preconceived notions about the RV and trailer market. It’s surprising to find such a luxurious trailer at a mid-range price, and it’s a fifth wheel that can stand up to any motorhome on the market. Even the LED lighting system offers a touch of class to the trailer.

If you’re set on driving an RV, and not a trailer, then the Avalanche might change your mind. Roomy with a lush interior, the Avalanche offers a luxury lifestyle on the road. And be sure to come by PleasureLand RV Center for all your RV needs.

Sand Creek Adventures bills themselves as “The Twin Cities ultimate low ropes, high ropes and zip tour challenge course” and that is one long way to say fun!

You should be in moderately healthy condition, be at least 8 years of age, and must weigh less than 275 pounds to participate in the activities at Sand Creek Adventures.

So what should you expect on your trip to Sand Creek? First, you should dress like you would if you were going to go for a walk in the woods. Comfortable clothes and closed toe shoes are best.

Once there, you will be fitted with a waist harness and helmet. A certified instructor will give you a short safety talk and answer your questions. Then it will be time for your day of adrenaline rushing fun.

The Low Ropes Connection is great for learning how to work as a team as you complete maneuvers that require each member to work in unison.

The High Ropes Challenge Course will test your determination and confidence. It starts with a cargo net entrance and ends with a zipline exit and in-between it is filled with a variety of maneuvers that will challenge you.

The spacious 35B and 35F have master baths and guest half baths, and the 35B includes bunk beds. The new 31KE has a u-shaped dinette, mid-coach TV and walk-around queen sized bed.

What really makes the 2013 Winnebago Vista such a great value is the amount and type of amenities that are offered as standard. These include:

  • MCD roller shades
  • Large LCD TV
  • Reclining Ultraleather cab seats that swivel
  • Hydraulic automatic leveling jacks
  • Cummins Onan generator

On the inside the Vista has a crowned, fiberglass roof guaranteed for 10 years. Thermo-panel sidewalls help provide insulation and sound-proofing. E-coating helps protect steel pipes and laser-cut tubing provides precision joins. The Vista’s superstructure is constructed like no other, and it is built to last.

It also comes with an extremely attractive price.

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and there are all kinds of ways to make your mother feel special, and let her know you love her. A phone call or a card and some flowers is a simple way, but why not try something else like a trip in your RV together, or stopping by for your visit. Mom did everything for you when you were growing up, and means the world to you now, so why not plan a vacation for her that would show her just how much you love her.

If your mom lives close by, you might want to try taking a trip together for the day. There are plenty of lakes, rivers, and parks available now that Minnesota is starting to warm up and the two of you could visit them together. And who knows, with all the amenities that your RV has, you might even want to make a week or a weekend of it. It’s probably been a while since your mom had a vacation, and she deserves a few days away from all the hustle and bustle of home.

You can visit any of the hundreds of RV parks, National Parks or State Parks that Minnesota and the neighboring states have to offer. Or, why not take a trip into Canada, which is only a hop, skip and jump away, and add a little international flavor to your trip.

Or why not bring the party to her. Surprise mom with a visit. The best part about traveling in your RV is that she won’t have to worry about putting you up for the night. Whether it’s a few hours drive, or it takes you a few days, you know that you and your family will be comfortable in your RV from PleasureLand RV Center. With a full kitchen, bathroom, and beds, your trip will be comfortable and smooth sailing. There’s always plenty of room for everyone in the family.

No matter whether you decided to visit your mother or take her on a vacation she’ll never forget, the most important thing is time to create a memorable and fun Mother’s Day with the whole family. At Pleasureland RV Center we would be proud to help you find the right, used or new RV. We also offer RV rentals to anyone who wants to take a trip in an RV.

RVing with Pets and Children

Having kids doesn’t mean that you have to give up the RV lifestyle, and being an RVer doesn’t mean that you can’t adopt that dog that you’ve been longing for. There are some considerations to keep in mind when you have kids and dogs on the road, but by and large, pets and children can love the open road as deeply as you do.

Screen Shot 2013-05-02 at 9.19.31 AM

Caring for Children on the Road

Children do tend to thrive on stability, having the same friends for more than a few days at a time, so you don’t find a lot of full-time RVers on the road, but it’s hard to find a child who doesn’t enjoy heading to a new campground every month, spending every summer exploring lakes, rivers and roadside attractions.

Scheduling a few big trips a year with a few weekends out here and there is generally going to be your best bet at providing both stability and adventure in your child’s life. Summer, Winter and Spring break are all a great opportunity to spend a week in the mountains or traversing Old Route 66.

Caring for Pets on the Road

It might not be a bad idea to look for a smaller pet. Even if you have a large RV, it’s tough on a big dog to always be cooped up inside of the vehicle. As much as they’ll love exploring hiking trails with you, the time spent in between stops can be very stressful for a larger animal.

If your pet has special dietary concerns, then make sure to stock up before you take off for a trip. Don’t assume that every small town in the country has what you need to feed your four legged friend.

The open road calls to us all at some point or other, whether you’re an adult, a child, a dog or a cat. The freedom and thrill of waking up in a new town every morning, of exploring your home country has universal appeal. As long as your pet or child has all of their needs taken care of, then there’s no reason not to take them out on the road with you.

RV Recipes: One Quick Breakfast

At Pleasureland RV we want to make sure you can make the most out of your Minnesota RV experiences. Today, we want to supply you with a quick RV recipe that will make your mouth water while you’re on the road.

When you travel in a RV, you have the opportunity to try new foods, local cuisine, and to stop at markets. Because of this, you’ll be able to have plenty of fresh, interesting flavors to try.

Breakfast burritos are one of our favorites. All you need is the range top in your RV to make this delicious meal.

 

First, you’re going to need these ingredients:

  • ground meat or sausage
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 1 12-ounce jar of salsa
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper (green)
  • 1/4 cup red or yellow peppers
  • 2 dozen flour tortillas, and 10 inch are the best
  • 1 16-ounce bag of shredded cheese. We suggest colby, but cheddar or swiss also works.


You’ll need to use the oven on a medium- to medium-high temperature, so make sure any children are away from the hot surface. Now, you will want to cook the sausage first until it is half cooked. At that point, add the onion and peppers and continue to fry them all together. After that, whip the eggs, and once your onions look clear, stir in the eggs and make sure to mix everything together frequently. 

When the mix starts to look stiff, add your salsa and cheese. Now, you can cook the tortillas in the microwave. Follow the directions on the pack or cook them for approximately one to three minutes.

Now, you’re finished! When everything is cooked, just add your filler to the tortilla and enjoy your breakfast.

If you need to do any substitutes, it’s simple. You don’t have to add salt or pepper, since this is only for flavoring, so if you like something a little more mild, try mixing just green peppers or adding tomato instead. This quick tip can save some people quite a bit of indigestion!
