We have a seasonal site and we also have our 5er. We camp every other weekend at the seasonal site and every other weekend we take our 5er to a different place. This is all of course subject to out work schedules. People would think that we have the seasonal and only use it a little when in fact we are camping just about every weekend.

We just purchased our first TT last summer and took delivery at the end of June. We managed to make 13 (mostly weekend) trips before winterizing at the end of October. There were a few back to back weekends of camping. I insisted that we get our money out of it. LOL This year, I'm planning on doing 2 weekend trips per month. Basically every other weekend, we will be camping. I'm guessing around 14 or so trips this year.

We take a break in August/September when it's like 106 outside. Although the AC works great, we don't like being trapped inside between 10AM - 10PM to avoid the Texas sun.

I've promised my husband he can have a weekend at home for every weekend we're away. Personally I could stay home M-F for work and NEVER be here on the weekend and it would suit me just fine. Sometimes it is real tempting to just stay at the park on Sunday and camp out for a whole week if we are close enough to drive in to work. I haven't convinced him of that yet...
We also live in Texas. I tell people that in the area we live in we have two seasons: 1. August and September 2. Not August and September. The rest of the year other than August and September we camp frequently but not on a set schedule. Since we are retired our trip lengths range from 3 nights to 9 weeks. We are not fulltimers but we are anytimers.

We have two seasons in the midwest too. Winter and construction.

I have been home 22 days in the past 14 months. Sitting in a campground as I type this. Of course, I'm not really camping. More like living in a camper beats living in a hotel room. I travel a lot for work and I wouldn't have it any other way. I love having my own place to come home to at the end of the day. Yeah, I get my money's worth out of my camper. I will probably get a new one this year as mine is 9 years old and starting to delaminate.

Aren't you glad you spent this past winter in FL rather than at home in NS!
