Autumn Approaches!

Hello RVers!
Summer’s end is fast approaching, and kids are heading back to school.
However, there’s a positive side to this change of seasons, because it
also means tailgating season is right around the corner! Sporting events
and tailgating are a great reason to own an RV. It just makes the whole
experience 10 times better! If you have kids involved with sports teams,
imagine taking the team to games with a great 5 th wheel in tow and
celebrating a win afterwards with a barbeque. Or maybe you have a
favorite football team, and would love to see the game, but the distance
and cost for a hotel are too great. An RV is a great way to spend the
night before a big game on the campus or near the stadium of your
favorite team.

Here are some great features that an RV can
provide you with this season.

There are many great reasons to get your own RV to be ready for
tailgating, but we’re here to help give you some great tailgating ideas.


Check out these great tailgating recipes to try at your next pregame
party!

Touchdown Taco Cups

Ingredients:
 1 lb ground beef – browned/cooked
 1 packet taco seasoning mix
 1 package shredded lettuce
 1 8 oz package shredded Taco blend cheese
 1 avocado – prepared into guacamole
 1 cup salsa
 Sour Cream
 Chopped cherry tomatoes, black olives, green onions, jalapenos
for optional garnish
 9 oz clear plastic cups
Instructions
1. Cook ground beef and add in taco seasoning according to packet
instructions
2. Scoop a spoonful of taco mixture into clear plastic cups to use as
the last of the dip, followed by a layer of each listed ingredient
according to your liking. Top with extra cheese, jalapenos, olives,
etc.
3. Enjoy these great appetizers!
Notes
1 lb of ground beef is enough to make about 10 taco cups. Consider
doubling the recipe if feeding a larger crowd.


Ham and Swiss Sliders

Ingredients:
· 12 oz package Hawaiian sweet rolls (12 rolls)
· 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
· 1 1/2 Tablespoons dried mined onion

· 1/2 cup (8 Tablespoons or 1 stick) of melted unsalted butter
· 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard

Instructions
1. Combine the melted butter, Dijon mustard, poppy seeds, and
minced onion. Whisk together until well blended.
2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Then cut each roll in half.
3. Cut the deli Swiss and ham in half, then fold each piece in half to
make smaller pieces that will fit on the bread.
4. Layer the sliders by starting with one folded slice of Swiss, then a
folded slice of ham, then another Swiss, one more ham, and finally
top with a folded slice of Swiss. So you’ll end up with alternating
layers of 3 folded pieces of Swiss and 2 folded pieces of ham on
each slider.
5. Complete with the rest of the rolls then put them into a baking
dish, arranged tightly together.
6. Spoon the butter mixture on top of each roll, covering each
completely with onions and poppy seeds.
7. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake 2-3
minutes until tops are slightly browned.
Notes
A bit more complicated, but a great tailgating dish. These are best
served warm and fresh! Also, the recipe can be doubled/tripled for
larger crowds!


Or, for those that do no/cannot enjoy ham-

Chicken Parmesan Sliders

Ingredients
 1 Slider buns
 1 lb Breaded Chicken Tenders (Precooked)
 2 c Pasta sauce
 2 c Mozzarella cheese, shredded
 1/2 c Parmesan cheese, shredded
 3 tbsp Butter, melted
 1 tsp Garlic powder (more to taste)
 1 tsp Italian seasoning
Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Place the bottom half of the slider buns in a greased casserole dish.

3. Place cooked chicken tenders on the bottom buns and then cover them
in sauce.
4. Combine the mozzarella and Parmesan cheese and sprinkle it over the
sauce.
5. Place the top buns on the sliders.
6. Melt the butter and mix the garlic powder until it is thoroughly
combined. (feel free to add more garlic powder if you like garlic as
much as I do!)
7. Pour the melted butter over the buns and then sprinkle with Italian
seasoning.
8. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 10 minutes, then remove the foil
and continue baking for another 10 minutes.
9. Remove from oven and Eat!

While you’re partying and having fun, it’s important to remember to be
safe too. So be sure to check over these safety tips to have an incident
free time.

INTEREST RATE INCREASE NEXT MONTH A NEAR CERTAINTY

CHICAGO TRIBUNE SAYS INTEREST RATE HIKE COMING IN DECEMBER

Today’s Chicago Tribune reports that a Federal Reserve increase in the interest rate next month is a “near certainty”.  It would be the first interest rate increase in nearly a decade.  The Fed cut the short-term interest rate that it controls to near zero in 2008 to try to stimulate growth during the recession.  Now, with unemployment down to 5%, the Fed is expected to increase rate at their next meeting Dec. 15-16.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR RV LOANS?

Interest rates for RV loans have been at record low levels for so long that it almost seems like the new normal.  But we will probably begin to see a return to the much higher pre-recession rates for auto and RV loans.  It may happen gradually or it may happen more quickly!  This could  be the last chance to lock in the current low rates.

RIGHT NOW IS THE SMART TIME TO BUY NEW OR PRE-OWNED RV

If you are a potential  first-time RV buyer, now is the time to do it!  If you still have an RV with a long term loan at the high pre-recession interest rates, now is the time to trade it in and lock in the current low rates.  You may find that you can have a new RV at a monthly payment that is as low as, or even lower than, the payment on your old one.  The window of opportunity is closing.

WE ARE RE-PAVING OUR RV SALES LOT

CAMP-LAND’S RV SALES DISPLAY AREA PAVING

We put it off as long as we could, but finally we just have to do it.  It is a huge job of moving RVs from place to place to make room for the paving company to do their job.  The next few days we will move about 80 RVs off the paved sales lot.   Happily, a nice neighbor is letting us move them on to a big grassy field right next door, so we can keep on selling during the whole process.  Then a week later we will move about that many more over onto the newly paved area.  After that we will reverse the whole moving job and move them all back where they belong, but onto a nice new asphalt surface.

WE WILL BE TRYING VERY HARD TO SELL AS MANY RVs AS POSSIBLE THIS WEEK

While all this is going on we will try to sell as many RVs as we can so there will be less to move around.  So we are having a big “RE-PAVING RV SALE”.  Every RV we sell is one we won’t have to move around.  It will be a little inconvenient for customers to have to walk around on grass to see some of the motorhomes and 5th Wheels, but we will reward RV buyers with a special PAVING SALE PRICE as a special “thank you”.  We already made our moving job a bit  easier by selling about 25 during the week before the paving starts!  We have plenty of incentive to sell them instead of moving them around.  There are many nice Fall weeks left for camping and we can make quick delivery of any we sell.

INTEREST RATES ARE STILL AT AN ALL-TIME LOW

This week the Federal Reserve decided to delay the long-expected increase in interest rates.  This may be the last chance for RV buyers to lock in the low rates before they go back to more normal levels.  This is a huge opportunity for RV owners with long-term loans taken out years ago at high rates to trade into a new RV at the current rates.  Sometime it is even possible to reduce the payment by trading  into a new RV!
