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.

The Advantages Of A Travel Trailer

The RV lifestyle is romantic for a number of reasons, and when we think of life on the road, we think of the platonic RV, perhaps white and tan with silver trim, a bedroom in the very back and a homey feel to the living room, and of course, the guest bed over the cab. There are some who ride with travel trailers hitched to cars or trucks, but when we imagine the RV lifestyle, we think of a motorhome.

Minnesota Travel Trailer

A travel trailer may be worth considering, though, if you’re looking for a new vehicle to hit the road with. Here are a few of the things that a travel trailer can do that a motorhome cannot:

1. Detachability

One of the trickiest things about the RV lifestyle is that it’s a major gas expense just to drive from the RV park into town for a few groceries. By hitching your trailer to a truck or a car, you can detach and drive wherever you need to go without the hassle of disconnecting from your hookup or spending the gas to drive your whole house into town to pick up a few steaks.

2. Cost

It varies, of course, and there are cheap motorhomes and expensive trailers, but if you’re buying your first travel-home, a trailer might wind up costing you less at the local Minnesota RV dealership than a motorhome.

3. Hooks to Any Compatible Vehicle

A problem with a standard RV is that when the engine is totally shot, you might be stuck somewhere for a long time. When you can simply scrap your junky old truck and attach a new one to your trailer, this is less of a concern, and you don’t have to trade in your whole home along with the vehicle that pulls it.

The motorhome is the platonic ideal for the traveler’s lifestyle, but the travel trailer has its advantages, as well. Consider the purchase carefully before you go with one or the other.

Does Your Minnesota Travel Trailer Need a Sway Bar?

As I’m sure most of you who own travel trailers in Minnesota know, our rolling homes tend to sway side to side while we are traveling down the road. To top if off, Spring is starting and you can definitely count on encountering some high winds along the way. If you’ve already experienced a sway, then you know how unpleasant it can make your travels. Lucky for us, someone came up with the ingenious idea of a sway bar to help stabilize and reduce swaying. The cool thing about sway bars is that they actually use your travel trailer’s weight to create stability by bracing the weight of the vehicle’s axle against the chassis.

So are sway bars actually worth it? Yes, hands down. Think about traveling along a winding road and a gust of wind suddenly hitting the enormous amount of surface area on your box-on-wheels. Scary, isn’t it? Not only will a sway bar make your RV travels safer, it’ll also help prevent your travel trailer and the vehicle you are using to tow it from unnecessary wear and tear.

Sway bars come in a wide variety and vary depending on the size of that which you are towing. Pleasureland RV has several makes and models you can check out at our online parts catalog. If you’re ready to get a sway bar installed on your Minnesota travel trailer, swing by one of the four Pleasureland RV dealerships in Minnesota. We’ll be happy to help you find the right one and even install it when you’re ready.
