Love your tiled patio for firepit too. We did the same, but not quite as big. I know it's camping, but I like keeping my feet out of the grass at night when it's dewy and/or mosquitos are out.

Well I'd camp at home but the neighbors there frown when you start a fire every night in your front yard. LOL!

LOL. We have a firepit in our yard at home. The yard in my area are pretty big (1/2 acre) and so nobody seems to care. It's common....including the fireman who lives next door.

Thanks on your comment about our rig and site. We built the retaining wall the first year. The CG owner dumped 7 skidloader buckets of fill (free) as we went up with the wall. Once the ground was raked level by hand we put down landscape fabric and 3" of gravel. The gravel we paid for but got it thru a friend of the CG owner so it was pretty cheap. I didn't want to worry about mowing under the camper and figure the gravel will help keep the critters from underneath the camper. Then we built the 24' deck in 8' sections so we could unbolt and move it if necessary.

Great looking rig on a great looking site you got there!!!!

Very clever move to keep the grass down. And it looks great!

I own a RV site in the UP of MI, but it is seasonal because it is closed for the winter. It opens on May 1st and closes first Monday of October. I don't think that I would want to be there over the winter.

Can't say I blame you. Question: With the amount of snow the U.P. gets (about 200-300 inches), is this a problem for the RV roof? I saw someone ask this in a different thread.

Michigan's U.P. is one of our favorite places to go. However, since we bought our first TT last August, we have never been there in a travel trailer. We're hoping to make the trip this summer with the Grandchildren.

We don't leave our fifth wheel there during the winter. We take it back to Texas. I would think that it, the snow, would be a problem.
