In addition to selling all types of recreational vehicles and boats, Familyfun RV & Auto gives their customers the opportunity to safeguard their purchases with a five-acre outdoor storage facility. An eight-foot fence protects the lots, and video cameras record all activity so that playful RVs can't sneak out after hours to visit the motorcycle camp across the lake. Winterizing services protect snowmobiles and ATVs throughout frosty months. Familyfun RV & Auto will also repair RVs and boats or clean them after use, and can provide pickup and drop-off service.

Collective Coffee blends Italy's rich café tradition with the Pacific Northwest's third-wave coffee culture, instilling a combination boutique coffee house and inviting artist's retreat in the heart of Riversdale. A classic cup of java nurtures tipplers with Intelligentsia-roasted beans, as well as rotating local roasts and vintage blends from artisan toasters ($2). Ignite a slumberous morning with an espresso ($2.50) or macchiato ($3.50), or recite Dante's description of the eighth circle, reserved for powdered nondairy creamer, while slowly stirring the foamy head of a cappuccino ($3.50) or latte ($4). Collective Coffee also steeps harmonious teas ($2) and rewards sweet teeth with hot chocolate ($3.75) and freshly baked goods by Caffé Sola.
Winner of the Kia Platinum Award in 2009, Kia of Saskatoon's vehicle virtuosos pamper cars with a premium detailing package. During the automotive gold plan, Kia-certified technicians dress exterior rubber, shampoo top engines, wash and power-polish outer walls, and rinse windows and wheels until they shine like a pop star dipped in olive oil. The interior receives its own gentle cleansing with a hand dry, truck vacuum, vinyl and door-jamb wipe-down, and seat and carpet shampoo. Kia of Saskatoon can also remove any almond-butter stains from leather interiors if necessary.
The fastidious auto beautifiers at O’Brians return vehicles to showroom glamour with attention to every sullied surface. Four-wheeled patients spend three to four hours under the eagle eyes and condor hands of the O’Brians technicians, who wash cars and apply wax by hand. Soap and shampoo expel dirt from exteriors, windows, wiper blades, and upholstery, and a chamois and vacuum evict bugs, tar, and fugitive particles from trunks and interiors. Cars’ rubber quintuplets and their rims and wheel wells get a thorough cleaning, then a class-picture-day-worthy dress and trim. Compassionate machines aid in buffing and polishing exteriors to remove scratches, swirls, and paint with spotty back stories, replacing them with a glossy shine. Finally, jalopies’ extremities from vents to mirrors turn as spotless as the polished leather and vinyl within. The CAA service centre and auto franchise is one of the largest in Saskatchewan. Detailing is available by appointment or by signaling distress with notes on dusty windows. Though not included with today's Groupon, financing services are available for those looking to lease or buy a vehicle.
Spiffy Car Wash restores cars to sparkling shines in an automated drive-thru car cleansing. Horseless carriages roll up to the car wash, in which wands blast the undercarriage and rocker with low-pH suds before spraying the front and rear of the car with high-pH soap and delicious candy sprinkles. A triple-foam system coats the vehicle in wax to protect paint jobs, and high-pressure jets of water blast away dirt and smudges. The approximately six-minute buggy bathing culminates with clear-coat protection and a spot-free rinse that helps protect chariots from future road wear and the messy admiration of birds overhead.
