Summer Vacations on Your Budget

Posted: Updated:

  It's the time of year when many of us are planning summer vacations.

  Camping can fit into just about anyone's budget.  You can spend tens of thousands of dollars for a fancy trailer or under a hundred bucks for a tent.   Plus, no matter where you live across our region there's a campground of some sorts within one thank full of our high priced gas.

Tent Expert: "If you look at this one, it will sleep comfortably one.."

  Experts say you can get yourself setup with a tent for as little as 80-bucks. But, there's one very important thing to take into consideration, when buying a tent. Divide what the manufacturer says about tent capacity by two.

Josiah Hylden, Scheels: "So if you get a 6-person tent, it's going to sleep very comfortably 3 people. You got a 2 person tent? It's going to sleep very comfortably 1 person."

  O.K.,  so you're willing to spend more and you'd like some of the comforts of home? This starter, pull behind camping trailer is priced at just under ten-grand.

Dave Pederson, Leisureland RV: "Air conditioning, refrigerator, microwave… just a great, easy to two with a SUV."

  Now if you're a serious camper , Peterson says more and more people are buying Park trailers to use as vacation or retirement homes at area lakes or down south in the winter months. Its price tag is in the thirty-thousand dollar range.

Dave Pederson: "Huge bathroom with washer and dryer capability. In the living room your looking at another sleeping area. You've got a table and chairs…"

  All the comforts of home or just something to keep you dry in the rain, camping has something for every budget.

  If you're looking for a place to camp, here are links to North Dakota and Minnesota State campgrounds:
