Instead of picking up a typical Father’s Day gift, get your dad something for the RV. If your dad doesn’t have an RV you might consider getting an RV for him for his special day. Now that would be the ultimate gift, especially for a dad who loves to hike, fish or hunt.

Find the Perfect RV

Whether your dad would prefer a motorized RV, fifth wheel, toy hauler, travel trailer or even a camper that slides onto a pickup truck, we have something for every dad. Choose from brand new or pre-owned for several brands and models. Find an RV that sleeps just two or something that sleeps up to 10 people. If your dad loves or needs a ton of space, find an RV with at least one slide – some have up to four slides.

If your father has a motorcycle, ATV, UTV, snowmobile or other “toy” he would like to take camping, a toy hauler might be in order. Depending on the size of the garage area, you can fit two bikes or at least two ATVs in it. Most toy haulers also have extra bunks for friends or family.

If your dad prefers the lap of luxury, then choose a travel trailer, fifth wheel or motorized RV with luxury features.

RV Must-Haves to Help You Be a Happy Camper

6-9-2015-RVMustHaves

The RV lifestyle is undeniably relaxing, but adjusting to a more compact lifestyle can seem tough at first. These simple RV travel hacks will help you maximize space and enjoy your RV lifestyle to the fullest, so you never feel the urge to go back home.

#1. Dry Food Containers Make Great Waste Baskets

You’ve probably already realized that standard round wastebaskets take up far more space in an RV than they do at home. Replace your wastebaskets with dry food containers to maximize your storage and waste space. The tall, thin containers fit easily under cabinets and in tight spaces.

#2. Use Shoe Organizers for Storage

Shoe organizers have become must-have items in most RVs. These handy organizer work flawlessly for cleaning supplies, bathroom products, clothing and miscellaneous items. Even better, they can be hung behind a door, along the bottom of your bed or in a number of other out-of-sight places.

#3. Create Your Own Waste Tank Cleaner

Keeping your waste tank fresh is essential to enjoying your time on the road, but costly cleaners can seem frustrating at first. Make your own waste tank cleaner by mixing a cup of Borax detergent with 1/2 cup Calgon Water Softener for the fresh tank smell and cleanliness without the cost.

#4. Save Your Free Condiments

Compact kitchens come with compact refrigerators. Save your excess packaged condiments from roadside stops, so you don’t have to crowd your mini-fridge with bulky ketchup, mustard and soy sauce bottles.

#5. Use a Collapsible Laundry Basket for Trash

Acquiring trash at the campsite is inevitable, and having a tiny trash bin can make it difficult to manage your waste. Line a collapsible laundry basket with a large trash bag to serve as your campsite waste bin. A properly sized waste basket means less trash ends up in nature.

#6. Find All of Your RV Needs at PleasureLand

The PleasureLand RV Center online parts store is open 24 hours a day, so you can find parts and camping supplies when you need them most.

Customize Your RV To Fit Your Personality And Comfort Level

Screen Shot 2013-06-03 at 11.26.25 AMAn RV is more than just a recreational vehicle to get you to different destinations. It is your car, living space and bedroom combined that you take everywhere you go. Since you sometimes spend a large amount of time inside your RV, you want it to make it into the most comfortable vehicle on the road while showing the world that this RV belongs to you. Here are some ways to personalize your RV.

1) Stellar Paint Job: Break out the airbrush and the stencils as you let your imagination go wild. Personalize your RV with a mural, your company logo or just a unique style by giving it a paint job. You can paint just the back of the RV, the side or the entire vehicle with your creative vision. The great thing about this customization is that if you get bored with the design, just paint over it again.

2) Make Storage Simple: Although RV travel trailers offer all the type of amenities to allow you to cook and sleep in comfort, sometimes storage space can be limited when you are trying to carry all the things to make an RV into a moving home. Simplify your storage problems by utilizing sturdy racks and containers specifically made for an RV. An aluminum laundry rack in the bathroom can can keep towels and other bathroom items secure when driving over bumpy roads. If you have a toy hauler, you can increase storage space by adding sliding rails to the garage ceiling and hanging storage containers.

3) Deck Out Your Space: Personalization should start right inside your RV by making the space into an incredible and gorgeous retreat. Make your RV comfortable by decking out the space with rugs, sofa pillows and chair covers in your favorite color scheme. Add picture frames (use the digital standing frames or hang pictures using those hooks that stick to surfaces versus putting a nail in the wall) and small potted plants around your RV. While lighting from candles can add a nice touch, stick with flameless LED candles that are battery operated to prevent the risk of fire.

Personalizing you RV from the Pleasureland RV Center can be a fun experience for you and the entire family before you go on your road trip. Add just the right touches to show off how much you love your recreational vehicle and how comfortable it is to travel inside as you will want to spend even more hours out on the road. Let your creativity go wild without breaking your budget as your RV will speak about your unique decor style as well as make life easier while traveling in a recreational vehicle.

The Top 3 HIking Trails in Minnesota

6-4-2015-TopHikingTrails

June 6 is National Trails Day, which means it’s time to pull your hiking gear out of storage and kick the summer off with an outdoor adventure. There are countless scenic hiking trails throughout Minnesota for all levels of hikers, and the following three are a few of our favorites.

Minnehaha Creek East

One of the biggest perks of Minnesota’s hiking trails is that they can be enjoyed during all seasons. This hike along the Minnehaha Creek is nearly 5 miles of breathtaking scenery in the summertime, but it’s certainly more difficult when there’s snow on the ground. It’s located Richfield, Minn., so you can enjoy a refreshing breath of the Minnesota outdoors just minutes from downtown Minneapolis.

Eagle Mountain Summit

Hikes are more fun when there’s a reward at the end. Eagle Mountain is the highest peak in the state, and the 6.6-mile-long tail that leads to the summit passes a glacial lake and scenic backcountry campsites. Hikers enjoy the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, which includes 1,000 lakes as well as the massive Superior National Forest. The trail to the top is mostly flat with a steeper incline for the last mile, but be sure to stop at Whale Lake for a refreshing dip and a picnic.

Cascade Falls to Lookout Mountain

Hiking past waterfalls never gets old, and the Cascade Falls to Lookout Mountain passes countless of them. Venture on the 4.1-mile-long hike, and you’ll be rewarded with cascades, scenic wooded hills and unbeatable views of Lake Superior from the top. The trail is located in the Cascade River State Park in Duluth, offering a breathtaking escape from the city.

Start Your Adventure at PleasureLand

There’s no better way to travel to your favorite Minnesota hiking trails than in the comfort and convenience of your RV. Stop in and see us at one of our many Minnesota PleasureLand RV Center locations to start your new RV lifestyle today.
