Nice Boat! Love the Scooters! I want scooters, but we can't have them where we camp. Scooters Rock!

Same with our park. No scooters, motorcycles, Golf carts, It's very family oriented with lots of kids activities. If we ever move it will be to a park that allows you to have the toys.

hauled my boat up this weekend they opened the marina early so it will be nice to beat the crowd on the holiday weekend putting their boats in. They usually don't get the marina in before memorial weekend here. Was relieved to see the freeze we had last week here didn't damage my water hose. The last time it was that cold overnight here the water hose looked like a soaker hose with pin holes all the way down it.

Looks great! I like the skirting around your deck.

Thanks. It's all meant to be low maintenance. No staining, treating, staining, treating. Not even painting the stair cases. Gonna let them age to a natural grey. Work hard...Once. LOL

My wife and I are seriously considering getting a seasonal site. We like driving around and seeing different places but knowing people would be more fun for us than seeing a bunch of new places. I have a couple questions that have been in my mind. Do you retract slides when you leave? I have electric stabilizers that a am not impressed with all the time. I don't want to put the trailer on blocks in case we want to take a trip. Any other ideas? I am thinking just getting some of the old fashion scissor crack jacks to use while there. Easy removal. I'm sure there will be more. I am really getting excited about not setting up and tearing down every weekend. Leave work, drive up, open door, unpack food, crack a cold one. Done in 10 minutes .

travyp,

After travelling all over we decided to go seasonal 6 years ago. We really enjoy it. It is a different style of camping and sometimes I do miss seeing different things. When DW retires we'll probably get back on the road. The convenience factor is great! We've made alot of new friends and even get together with some of them at the Madison RV show in Feb and go out to dinner after just to catch up.


We leave our slides out all season, April 15th to October 15th, and never had a problem.
What don't you like about the elec stabilizers? You could always add scissors jacks or jack stands by your axles to increase the the stability. We had JT Strongarms installed on our 5th wheel and while not cheap they do make a big difference.


What part of Wisconsin are you from?

What I don't like is that they pivot from the middle so if you have to extend them very far the trailer has more movement. I have the xchocks between the tires so that helps a bit. I was thinking of the jt's as well then they would stay attached to the trailer and could be used if we pull out too. Just didn't know if there were other options I didn't think of. My buddy has a similar puma a few years older with the manual jacks at each corner and his is much more stable most of the time. I'm a bit confused with the jt's as well because my jacks don't go straight down so to speak so wouldn't that bend them some?

I am from the Green Bay area and are looking at Lakewood for a site. We have friends up there that love it. It's just under 2 hours drive kind of like your drive. Not too bad if you ask me. I agree it is different kind of camping but I look at it like the cabin I can't afford. . More activities for the kids too.

We love seasonal camping for the ease, cost effectiveness, ability to see new friends we make, lots of activities and ammenities. Setting up with deck or patio, landscaping, etc. is a bit of work, but in general, only once. We have a blast! Have fun and post up some pics. This thread is loaded with them. Happy camping! Oh, btw, we keep our slides out all season as does everyone else around here (our CG) it seems.
