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.

2013 Winnebago Vista

It is being called the “can’t miss coach value coach of 2013”. It is the Winnebago Vista available at PleasureLand RV Center. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the Winnebago Vista and what makes this Class A motorhome such a value.

2013 Winnebago Vista

The Vista made the cover of MotorHome Magazine this past March. It has the three main features that are sure to get the attention of anyone looking for the best RV motorhomes that Minneapolis, Minnesota has to offer…quality, comfort, and a great price.

The Vista starts with a choice of floor plans that are family-friendly. The new 26HE leans toward the sporty side with Solo blackout shades. The 27N features a new triple slide-out. 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:

  • Electric patio awnings
  • MCD roller shades
  • Large LCD TV
  • Reclining Ultraleather cab seats that swivel
  • Hydraulic automatic leveling jacks
  • Cummins Onan generator
  • Rearview monitors
  • Studio Loft drop-down beds (in most models)

The Vista includes lots of little touches you will really appreciate on the road. These include single paddle latches that offer one handed operation for cargo areas and a handy wash station with hot and cold water, in the service center, to help rinse off sandy shoes or even pets.

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.

If you are looking for an RV dealership to trust and that can give you a personalized tour of the Vista, contact PleasureLand RV Center.

RV Road Trip: Black Hills, Badlands & Lakes

If you’re looking for some great locations to take your new motorhome, you may want to consider Black Hills Badlands and Lakes. A quintessential American landscape, Black Hills area is noted for its beautiful spires climbing impossibly high into the sky, and its gorgeous gorges, setting the mood of an old western and bringing you back to the days before any white person set foot on South Dakotan land.

The area is loaded with incredible sights, including waterfalls and wildlife. Home to six national parks and historical areas like Deadwood and Wounded Knee, Badlands National Park houses the immense memorial-in-progress for Crazy Horse.

The lakes here are wonderful whether you like to boat, fish, or just park by the water and have a few drinks while watching the sun set over the trees. You’ll want to bring your camera, as there will be plenty of things you’re going to want to see again and again.

The nature trails here are enough to keep you busy for years on end if you ever want to take a serious trek. If not, there are plenty of short trails that will take you along some beautiful scenery for your lunch break.

Whether you’re an American history buff, a lover of nature, or just an RVer looking for an inexpensive way to spend the summer, the Black Hills area is perhaps the best you’re going to find in South Dakota when it comes to combining fresh air, mountain living and old western appeal. A drive through the area puts you back in the days of the original settlers, the Native Americans and the pilgrims who explored the country from coast to coast.

We haven’t invented time travel just yet, but a little time spent in Black Hills is the next best thing. Check out the Badlands and the various lakes and see for yourself if Black Hills isn’t one of the most beautifully preserved areas in the country.

RV Recipe: Beer Butt Chicken

Since spring is coming up,  it is the perfect time to start planning the first RV trip of the season. You can either rent an RV, buy a new RV from a RV dealership Minneapolis, or if you have an RV, bring it in for spring RV service. Once your RV is set and ready to go, you’ll need to pack for the long weekend. Be sure to bring the ingredients needed to make Beer Butt Chicken.

 

  • Whole chicken
  • 1 can of your favorite beer
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Badia Redfish Seasoning
  • Poultry seasoning

Wash the chicken. If the giblets came with the chicken, remove them. You can use them to make gravy, or you can feed them to your four-legged friend – your dog will love you for that.

Drink about a third of the beer. Add about a teaspoon of each of the spices to the rest of the beer in the can.

Hold the chicken upright – legs down. Push it onto the beer can. Balance the chicken on the grill. The beer can and legs make a tripod so it will stand up.  Coat the chicken with all of the spices. If you like “mild,” go easy on the redfish seasoning. If you like your food a bit spicier, go heavy on the redfish seasoning.

If you are using charcoal, be sure to put enough in the grill to last about four hours. If you are cooking on an open grill, you may need more than four hours. If you are using gas, adjust the grill to 350 degrees. If your grill doesn’t have a thermometer, turn on two of the burners. Put the chicken on the opposite side. If you are using a wood fire, build a big fire and let it die down to almost coals. Prop the chicken on the grill, but make sure you have room to add wood under the grill. If you can find it, use green hickory – it will burn slowly and smoke quite a bit, giving your chicken a hickory smoked flavor. The chicken is done when you poke it and clear juices run out or at a minimum of 185 degrees Fahrenheit. You can also test it by pulling on one of the wings – if it comes off with little to no resistance, the chicken is most likely done.

Serve the beer butt chicken with your favorite potato salad, macaroni salad, roasted spicy potatoes or baked potatoes. Send us pictures of your first RV trip, and if you make beer butt chicken, be sure to send us pictures of the chicken before you demolish it!

Boundary Waters By Crossroads

If you are looking for RV motorhomes in Minnesota, stop in to one of our four locations and take a look at one of our exclusives, Boundary Waters by Crossroads.  The Boundary Waters by Crossroads is available in six different floor plans! You can choose from a full rear living area or bunk-house RVs.

The three floor plans that have slide outs features wood slide-out fascia. All six models feature designer valances with curtains and mini blinds for privacy. If you have a larger family or want to bring friends on a camping trip, the sofa converts into a bed.

The galley features everything you need to create all your favorite meals, including a 6 cubic-foot refrigerator, a three-burner stove, oven, microwave and a range hood with light and exhaust fan.

For entertainment, enjoy the AM/FM/CD player or hook a television up to the antenna or cable television hookup. You can even listen to music outside via the two marine-grade exterior speakers.

The bathroom features a foot flush parchment toilet, a large sink and a spacious one-piece tub and shower with a curved shower track. The curved shower track keeps the shower curtain from sticking to you while taking a shower. All six floor plans also feature a power vent over the tub.

The 40-gallon fresh water tank and the 6-gallon hot water heater provide plenty of water for showers and washing dishes if you are dry camping. The water heater features a bypass to make winterizing the RV easier if you’re not using it in colder weather.

The Convenience Package comes standard on the Boundary Waters, and includes a smoke detector, L.P. gas detector, awning to protect you from the elements, and four stabilizer jacks to help make set up easier.

#Portals/10/bw%20pic1.jpg

 

The molded rain gutters keeps rain from pouring down on you when you open the door if you don’t have the awning opened. Furthermore, the bumper is hollow and is fitted with end caps so you can store the sewage hose outside. You’ll also enjoy plenty of storage inside and outside for patio furniture, hunting gear and extra luggage.

You can also add several options, including a skylight over the tub, an outside shower, an Arctic package for winter camping and an enclosed underbelly to help keep the warmth in during cooler months.

Stop by PleasureLand RV today to walk through the Boundary Waters or any of our other RVs.
