Spring RV Rental

Spring is close on hand and it’s time to make reservations for spring camping. If you don’t have an RV but have always wanted to take an RV trip, Pleasureland RV Center has RV rentals Minneapolis Minnesota.

Renting Instead of Buying

Renting makes more sense if you don’t have the time to use an RV more than once or twice a year. Many people who are working get a week of vacation; and then they have to try to schedule their vacation around the time kids are out of school. That is not always possible since everyone can’t take the same week off from work. If you do manage to get that treasured vacation so you can do something with the entire family, an RV dealership Minneapolis can help make your dream vacation come true.

RV Rental Types

You can choose from four types of RVs for your RV rental vacation. All have the comforts of home except for popup campers.

  • Class A: Class A RVs have all the comforts of home, including a full kitchen, bath with a shower or a shower#Portals/10/classicons/classagas.pngand tub, entertainment center and central heat and air. Class A RVs are built on a specially constructed chassis.

 

  • Class C: Class C RVs are also well-equipped with all the comforts of home. Unlike a Class A, which generally#Portals/10/classicons/classc.pnghas flat front, the Class C has a cab over. The cab over could be a bunk, entertainment center or storage. Class C RVs are built on a van chassis.

 

  • Travel Trailers: Travel trailers have many different floor plans and sizes. They are lighter so vehicles with a low #Portals/10/classicons/traveltrailer.pngtow rating can pull them. You also have a choice of a park trailer model, which is larger than a typical travel trailer. All models have at least one bathroom, a bedroom, extra bunks or sofas that convert to bunks, a full galley and many have entertainment centers.

 

  • Popup Trailers or Tent Trailers: Tent trailers fold down into a small, low towable trailer. When you open a tent#Portals/10/classicons/tent_trailer.pngtrailer it is tall enough to walk in and two bunks – usually queen size – pop up in the front and rear. Most have a cubby where you can store a portable toilet, but do not have a full bathroom. They also have a small “portable” kitchen. If you prefer tent camping but want to be off the ground, a tent trailer is a perfect option.

Minnesota RV Pastimes: Stargazing

Stargazing remains one of the favorite camping pastimes for seasoned and new RVers. And in November, if you find a nice dark campground, you’ll have a chance to not only tour the constellations, you’ll have a front-row seat for the Leonid Meteor Showers.  This year, the meteor showers will peak late on November 16 and continue until dawn on November 17.

The famous Leonids radiate from the constellation Leo; and this year, with a waxing crescent moon setting early in the evening, the sky will become a dark stage for the meteors’ spectacular performance.  If you’d like to learn more about the stars before you head out on your Minnesota RV stargazing trip, you might pay a visit to your friendly, neighborhood planetarium.

Part of the University of Minnesota’s Bell Museum, the ExploraDome ranks among the top 10 planetariums in the U.S. Programs offer visitors a chance to lay back and take a trip through the cosmos using a high-tech projector. Weekly shows include “Zoom: From Earth to the Edge of the Universe.”

Keep an eye on the sky, and never miss a chance to wish upon a star!

Taking Your Pleasureland RV To The Flea Market

Chances are, any time you’re on the road with your new or used Minnesota RV, there’s a flea market nearby. What’s your favorite treasure? From collectible Scooby-Doo lunch buckets to velvet Elvis paintings, America’s flea markets have it all.

Kathy Johnson, who owns Pieces of the Past in Johnson City, Texas, is a flea market pro. She travels to flea markets all across the south in search of the perfect architectural antiques for her clients. “I tell people that the best way to plan your flea market road trip is to get that RV up and running,” says Kathy. “It’ll give you more room to carry your treasures! It’ll also give you a place to go when you’re tired, confused, hungry, or annoyed at the “sold” sign on that special something you wanted.”

Where will you begin your flea market adventure? The Travel Channel put together a list of what it considers the world’s best. The most intriguing one for those of us traveling in our Minnesota motorhomes is likely the 127 Corridor, which runs from Gadsden, Alabama all the way to Jamestown, Tennessee. For three weeks every August, more than 2,000 vendors line the road and welcome the adventurous shoppers.

The Hamel Lions Flea Market, here in Minnesota, is just west of Minneapolis and tops the CBS list of best flea markets.  Check out the other listings for even more flea markets here in Minnesota, or visit American Fleas to start planning your ultimate flea market road trip. While almost any flea market can help you add to your favorite collections, some also offer some great foods and local music while you shop. Let us know if you find a good one!
