Our first season as seasonals and our first 2 tt in four months lol. First one we bought was devastated by a severe hail storm. @nd one is way bigger and better than our first. Don't recommend buying 2 travel trailers in four months but things work out lol.

As the season comes to a close for those of us in the northern tiers of the USA and those in Canada I thought I'd revive this thread. Anybody new? Anybody got any stories to tell? Get a new camper? etc. Our water gets shut off on Oct 15th so DW and I are closing up this weekend . We had another great season, met some people new to the campground, and as always wonder where the past 6 months went.

5hole, how'd your deck turn out?
Bodz, sent you a PM a couple weeks ago but haven't heard back. Hope all is OK.

Ouch! Sounds like a highway with a detour.

We close up the 2nd of November and make our renewals for next year. Had a great time this year, being our first as seasonals, and look forward to next. Of course we did pull it out 3-4 times for other trips. We also picked up a golf cart at the end of the season, so I'll be tricking that out over the winter. Wasn't sure I would like the seasonal thing, but have really enjoyed it.

I can't see myself as a seasonal.
I like seeing new parks and new parts of our great country to much.
After all, we called it travel trailer for something !

We made it through our 2nd season as seasonals. We did enjoy travel but now prefer one place . . . drive to it and open it up and relax. Have signed up for yr 3. Campground had significant hail that caused slideouts to buckle [too much hail on the slideouts] but not our camper -- thankfully. Since CG closes Oct 15 and we have every weekend booked we closed up September 21. Plans call for a new deck in spring with an add a room for DW. Golf cart was purchased last year.

We just finished up our 3rd year of seasonal camping and have already signed our contract for next year. We’ve actually been camping at this CG for about 15 years now but decided to make the jump to seasonal when I got a new job. I get home pretty late so it was always a hassle to pack up the trailer and haul it out all the time.

The CG is actually between my job and my house so I just have the wife and kids meet me there on Fridays. It’s only about 30 mins from our house so we can run back home for anything we may have forgotten as well.

We just traded in our 2008 Wildwood TT for a 2015 Sabre 36QBOK and this past weekend was our first weekend in it. We filled it up with 9 kids (our 3 plus their friends) with no problem.

This coming weekend we’ll be moving our decks back since the new trailer is positioned differently than the old one was. I also need to get some blocks under it so it doesn’t shake so much when we walk around inside it.

Only two more weekends left until they turn the water off. But with the camper being brand-new, we may still head out a few more times before the snow starts falling.

The family that owns the CG just went through a big legal battle over ownership amongst themselves but it’s all settled now. I’m hoping they’ll start putting some more money into the place. It’s gotten a little run down the past few years and they’ve lost quite a few campers because of it.

When we first started camping there we had to reserve sites months in advance for holiday weekends. Now they have the number of weekenders that they used to get.

We just got a seasonal site at the end of August and signed up thru 2015.
During this time we will evaluate the pro's and con's.
Our site has easy out for road trips.

The drive to the cg from the house is 35 miles of back roads (55-60+ mph)thru the country and not a single stoplight.

The sad part is I think this is our last weekend of camping for the season.
