The Super Bowl in a Conversion Van

February 1st, 2011 by

Super Bowl XLV

It’s Super Bowl week!

Can you believe it?

I mean heck, I still haven’t been able to settle down from all the excitement Sunday’s Pro Bowl game filled me with. (Note: hint of sarcasm included.)

The big game is right around the corner and Pittsburgh Steeler and Green Bay Packer fans alike have begun flocking to Dallas. With that said, hotels are filling up quicker than you can say Troy Polamalu’s last name.

Probably one of the most talked about aspects of this year’s championship game is how expensive everything is. Package deals (including airfare, hotel, and a rental car) are costing upwards of $1,700 a person. That doesn’t even include the cost of the tickets.  Heck, some parking spots are even running as much as $1,000!

Considering how expensive this year’s big game is, we here at Dave Arbogast Conversion Vans would like to applaud Green Bay Packer fans for both their ingenuity and dedication to the art of mastering Super Bowl accommodations.

According to reports across the Internet, many Pack fans are making the 1,000 mile trek from Wisconsin via a conversion van or camper van to save money.  And, rather than heading to a hotel and paying a ridiculous amount of money for a room, they’re heading to Dallas-area campgrounds and RV parks, potentially saving thousands of dollars.

Evidence of this Super Bowl sub-culture is yet again undeniable proof that owning a camper van or conversion van is a great investment.
By heading to the big game in either, you can spend the night before having drinks and other refreshments not only with your friends and family, but with other sports fans as well.  Also, some campgrounds are as close as three miles to the stadium meaning getting to the game on time is no problem.

With a conversion van or camper van, you also have the luxury of having all the amenities of hotel room.

Come to think of it, why would anyone want to pay a ridiculous amount for a hotel room at the Super Bowl?

Green Bay Packer fans don’t. They would rather head down in the comfort of a conversion or camper van. We’re not sure how Steeler fans are getting down there but who cares about them anyway.

And, if the Packers’ fans high-travel IQs are any indication of how the team will perform, our bold prediction for the big game is as follows: Green Bay Packers, 28; Pittsburgh Steelers, 24.
