Camping Games Your Whole Family Will Love

You probably have plenty of fun activities in mind for your upcoming camping trip in your new or used RV from Modern Trailer Sales. But take these great ideas for camping games with you in your back pocket. You never know when they’ll come in handy!

For Little Kids

Kids love scavenger hunts! Browse Pinterest for some nature and camping scavenger hunt printables. They’ll love coloring in their scavenger hunt list and you’ll love that it keeps them occupied!

Get creative on a nature hike with your family. Keep the scavenger hunt list in your head! Give your little ones things to find along the way. The game I play with my younger kids is “Sets of Five.” I have them search for 5 acorns, 5 yellow leaves, 5 spotted rocks, and so on.

For Middle Grade

Make sure to bring a package of glow sticks for this one! Snap the glow sticks to get them glowing, and set up pegs for a ring toss. When it gets dark, take turns throwing the glow rings!


For Teens

Get camp life set up quickly and with some fun competition! Give teens certain set-up tasks – like a campfire starting race using flint fire starter (and safety parameters and guidelines, of course!).

A silly game you might be able to get everyone in on is sleeping bag hop – zip up your teens in sleeping bags, and have them hop a set distance (like an old school sack race).


For The Whole Family

What you want most out of your camping trip is time well spent with your family and the good memories that comes from that. Make sure to have at least one night around the campfire with s’mores and stories – leave the phones inside and just enjoy being with each other.

You’ll also be smart to plan for inclement weather, so pack a couple of board games. My family loves cooperative games, which mean we all work, win, and lose together. It’s a great way to develop teamwork!

If you’re just starting out on your journey of shopping for a new or used RV, we can help. Or, if you need some RV service before you hit the road, or need help dewinterizing your RV, we’re just a phone call away. Contact us today!

Try This Great and Easy Recipe for Sausage Balls!

If you’re traveling during the holidays in your new or used RV from Modern Trailer Sales, you’ll definitely want this easy recipe for sausage balls. This is a favorite holiday recipe my entire family loves, and you can either make it ahead of time or take the ingredients with you. Either way, it’s a crowd pleaser!

Holiday Sausage Balls

  • 1 lb spicy ground sausage
  • 1 box cheddar biscuit mix (we use Red Lobster brand)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup shredded cheese of your choice (we prefer either pepper jack, Monterey jack, or cheddar)

You’ll also need:

  • Mixing bowl and spoon
  • Cookie sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Meat thermometer


This recipe couldn’t be easier! Simply mix thoroughly all ingredients together – including the little seasoning packet that comes in the biscuit mix. You can mix it by spoon, by hand, or if you’re at home, in your stand mixer. Then scoop out large tablespoons onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Roll into balls, and bake at 350 until meat thermometer inserted reads 160 degrees.

Extra Tips

  • Why a meat thermometer instead of a specific time? Baking food for certain time cycles runs the risk of either under or over cooking. Dangerous if it’s undercooked, and unpalatable if it’s overcooked and dry! Cooking to temperature instead of time ensures you get a fully cooked finished product without being dried out.
  • These are great straight out of the oven, but if you’re traveling and want them to last, they’ll do just fine for a couple of days in an airtight food storage container. Of course, ours never last longer than a day, so we typically double or triple the batch if we want leftovers!
  • Some sausage ball recipes call for the sausage to be cooked first with other liquids added to help retain moisture. I like this recipe because by starting with raw sausage, the meat keeps the sausage balls moist, not dry, as it cooks!

If you’re traveling in your new or used RV over the winter or during the holidays, let us help make sure your road trip goes safely and smoothly. Contact us for assistance with your RV questions or RV service or repair needs!

RV Renovation Tips: The 4 R’s

Thinking about renovating your RV? We think it’s a great idea! Maybe you’ve owned your RV for many years and it just needs a bit of freshening up. Or maybe you’ve gone with a budget-friendly option of shopping from our used RVs for sale and want to breathe some life into a pre-owned RV to make it truly yours. This is an amazing option to keep your RV looking in pristine condition. Here are some top RV renovation tips.

Revive

Maybe the kitchen needs an update or some more counter space. Did you know our RV parts catalog is full of items that can freshen up your new or used RV? Ask us about adding some countertop extensions, or investing in a portable camp kitchen for some outdoor meals.

RV Renovation Tips

Or it may be as simple as adding a new throw pillow or two, or a shower caddy that helps keep down the bathroom clutter. Think about ways to add or subtract to freshen up your RV’s look!

Recover

Maybe your U-shaped dinette or free standing chairs are looking a little worn. Don’t get rid of them! If the cushion is still in good shape with lots of life left, consider reupholstering them instead.

RV Renovation Tips

One way you can save money on renovating your used RV is to keep and update what you can rather than just automatically tossing it.

Repair

“Time marches on…sooner or later, you realize it’s marching across your face.” – Dolly Parton in Steel Magnolias.

Time and age can do a number on us all – even your RV! Roof cracks, scuffed floors, small carpet rips…these things can be repaired fairly easily. Our RV service department can give your new or used RV a tune up and some much needed maintenance and repair on a number of issues.

Replace

Sometimes you just need to rip something out and let it go, whether it’s pulling up carpet, taking down curtains, or replacing an old sofa. Again, our RV service department can help on some major repairs or replacements to help get your RV road ready.

Ready to shop for a used RV? With these RV renovation tips, you can make a pre-owned RV look just like new! Contact us today to ask if we can help you with any of these RV renovation tips.
