The Top 5 Campfire Games

4-16-2015-Top5CampfireGames

Huddling around a campfire with your friends and family is always fun, but campfire games make it even more enjoyable. These five campfire games are fun for all ages, and they don’t require any accessories, so you can play them whether you’re tent camping or at the RV park with your motorhome.

1. Name That Tune

This game is simple, and it’s even more fun if you have a musician in your group of campers. Have your musician begin playing a song or play the beginning of a song on your phone or MP3 player. The first person to guess the name of the tune wins a point, and the person with the highest number of points at the end of the game wins.

2. Telephone

Telephone is a game that always ends in a lot of laughs. Start with one person in your group and have them think of a phrase. The phrase is then whispered from one person to another around the campfire. The last person will then recite the final phrase. Hint: It is often much different than the original.

3. The No Game

The No Game is played by forbidding everyone at your campfire to say the word “no.” Campers can ask each other questions and make comments to get each other to say the word. Each person who says “no” is eliminated, and the last person standing wins.

4. Charades

Charades is a campfire game guaranteed to make you laugh. Have one person come up with a topic and attempt to act it out. The first person to guess correctly wins.

5. Pass the Ghost Story

It’s not a campfire without a ghost story. Have one player start the ghost story with one sentence then let every person in the circle add a sentence. Make it around your circle at least twice before finishing the story.

Before you hit the road this camping season, don’t forget to stop in and see us at your one-stop RV shop — PleasureLand RV Center in Minnesota.

Rent an RV for Your Spring Getaway

4-9-2015-RentRVSpring

Interested in starting your RV lifestyle? Or searching for an alternative vacation without costly plane tickets? Rent an RV from PleasureLand for your spring getaway, and you’ll quickly realize all of the joys of the RV lifestyle.

Renting an RV is the perfect way to get a feel for the RV lifestyle and which RV suits your family’s needs. It’s also the perfect way to save big bucks on an otherwise costly vacation. The following are some of the reasons you should choose to rent an RV this spring.

It’s Cost Effective

By the time you plan your spring vacation with costly plane tickets for the entire family, hotel rooms and money budgeted for eating every meal out, it becomes hard to imagine relaxing with so many expenses to pay. When you rent an RV, you can forget about plane tickets, hotel reservations and unbearably expensive meals. An RV allows you to travel together in one vehicle, cook family meals inside your RV and sleep comfortably wherever you decide to park.

It Gives You Freedom

Traveling by plane can be a major hassle, especially if you’re traveling as a family. TSA checkpoints take time, the lines are long and there are so many stresses associated with making your flights on time. Renting an RV gives you the freedom to travel as you please and stop for breaks or sightseeing whenever you desire. Forget about dinner reservations, canceled flights and checking out of your hotel room on time; your RV is your mobile vacation home.

Test Out the RV Lifestyle

In addition to being an ideal way to enjoy a vacation, renting an RV gives you an opportunity to experience the RV lifestyle before you by. You can try renting a number of RV types to discover which RV suits your needs. PleasureLand RV Center offers Class A motorhome, Class C motorhome, travel trailer, fold down and ice house rentals with unlimited mileage, so you can get out and discover what the RV lifestyle is all about.

Rent an RV for Your Next Adventure

3-24-2015-RVRental

If you want to guarantee that your next vacation will be one of the best ones yet, rent an RV. Renting and RV gives you the opportunity to cater your travels directly to your needs. Whether you want to relax on the beach or enjoy an epic adventure, an RV will get you to your destination and ensure you enjoy the journey along the way.

Enjoy the Affordability

Renting an RV eliminates your need for pricey plane tickets, numerous costly hotels rooms and expensive meals at restaurants. For one low daily rental rate, your travel, accommodations and even a convenient kitchen are included. Renting and RV will cut your vacation expenses associated with flights, hotels and restaurants roughly in half.

Use Your Freedoms

One of the biggest perks of renting an RV is that you enjoy freedoms that you don’t experience when flying to your destination. Flight times, layovers, TSA checkpoints and canceled flights are things of the past, and expensive and unhealthy meals can be exchanged for your favorite homemade alternatives. An RV rental even lets you change your travel plans if you see a stop (America is known for its outrageous roadside attractions) you want to make along the way. There are no set rules, schedules, or reservations.

Spend More Time Together

An RV rental encourages your family to spend more time together. Whether you’re on the road to your destination, eating meals, enjoying recreational activities outside or lounging at the campsite, an RV keeps your family together much more often than separate hotel rooms. You’ll be amazed at how many lifelong memories are made inside your rental RV.

Rent Your RV from PleasureLand

PleasureLand RV Center makes your RV rental experience quick, easy and affordable. Choose from a Class A, Class C, travel trailer, pop-up or ice house rental that you can pick up or drop off at our St. Cloud, Brainerd, or Willmar locations.

Protecting The Appearance Of Your New RV

When you invest in a new Class A motorhome from Pleasureland RV Center, you need to take care to keep it looking great for years to come. Allowing weathering to cause your exterior to fade will only lower the value of your vehicle and make it harder to sell in the future. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on products that must be applied regularly if you request professional ResistAll protective sealants from our service team.

Exterior Sealant To Protect Your Paint Job

Start with a protective coating to keep paint from fading and flaking away. The UV rays from the sun and moisture both work to strip away layers of color. The high gloss finish that offers basic protection against the weather, but normal conditions will eventually remove that finish. The sealant protects both the underlying paint and the top coat over it. Sticky deposits like bird waste and pine sap won’t bond permanently with the walls of your RV if you add an extra layer of sealant with our service. Salt from the roads and ocean spray will just wash off the exterior as well.

Improving The Interior

The interior of the RV usually starts to show wear after a few years if you take at least a few trips throughout the summer. Fabric, leather and vinyl all become stained and dull as your family relaxes on furnishings covered in these materials.

Sealing The Fabric

When the seats or couches in your motorhome or travel trailer are covered with the ResistAll treatment, liquids won’t be able to stain the material. Even oil-based spills will clean up without leaving permanent marks. The sealant can be applied to carpet as well to make vacuuming easy when someone walks in with muddy boots. Even fading won’t be such an issue with fabric that has been properly treated.

Coating Leather And Vinyl

Vinyl already resists spills fairly well, but leather can absorb liquids just like fabric. A safe sealant helps the material shed water, cola and even ice cream. The material will also stay soft and flexible when covered in the right type of protective sealing. Both vinyl and leather can crack if exposed to sunlight without something over it to block out the UV rays.

All of the ResistAll sealing services offered at our RV service center are supported by a five year warranty. If you’re tired of wiping down your upholstery or spraying the exterior at least once a month during the camping season, consider a set of products that could save you time and preserve the condition of your RV in one step.
