We don't get the kind of utilisation I'd like to get for the amount of money we have invested in the RV, but it's just not worth the hassle.
Typical old fart bias, I guess.
We do camp in the summer, but not on holiday weekends, particularly long holiday weekends.
That said, we went to Lake Isabella in Southern CaL with daughter and DH in both MoHos over the long 4th weekend, and it was horrendous! The lake is low for dam repairs, so only one ramp was open for launching deep-draft boats. We would've waited 5-6 hours to launch, and the lake was so low that I'd have been reluctant to anchor out beside our campsite.
The genny ran 24-7 for 4 days due to the heat (even at night), and it was so muggy that you couldn't sit outside until 8:00PM!
The lake, normally 20' from our site was at least 500' away! The only area where you could safely get a motorhome on the lake, by the dam, was at least two units deep everywhere. Ugh, and never again on "Amateur Weekends"!
