We call it camping...might not pull into a forest like you real campers....lol....what I do is be able to enjoy my hobby which is my Harley's and travel to places so that I can ride and explore the area..since my wife's kidney transplant that's the only way I can do what I love...so negative comments about what others do differently might be because they have no choice..

I guess you found me out...lol. I personally prefer RV places that include some feel of the area that we are staying, but also want to stay at a place that has nice amenities. Camping to me is a vacation, and I prefer to have the bed/fridge/tv, etc. that I am comfortable with during my travels. Friends refer to what we do as "glamping". I think that over the years, camping has taken on a new definition, with multiple interpretations.

Many times we have said we wish we could of put the old gas coach on top of the DP frames we had later.

So don't think you have to have a DP. We love the Berkshire we have now but the gas coaches are just fine.

As to cost. Now is a great time to find a left over model year coach.
We bought our 2014 40' Berkshire after the 2015's were out. Paid $182,000 and then got a $10,000 rebate from Forest River.

Just a note. That was at Total Value RV in Elkhart also.

X2 on Total Value RV. We went there for a test drive last week. Dave, the salesman we delt with, was very knowledgeable (he actually owns a MH, which helps ) great guy to talk to and absolutely ZERO pressure. If you are looking for a dealership in the Elkhart area, I would look no further!

Ya I know all of them there at total value. I've traded there 4 times. Dave is my salesman too. If I'd been on the ball I'd let you in on the best places to eat up there. We go up there 3 or so times a year.

Make it x3 on Total Value RV. Dealt with Chad and process was great, not to mention he beat all other prices and the coach had less than 50 miles on it. Will go there first for next coach. As they say, "buy em where they're built".

Darn! bet you could have steered us from staying at Days Inn & Suites

We had dinner with Bob & Cindy at Da Vinci's Restaurant--would that have been one of your choices? The food was quite good!

We will probably be going back up in Feb so feel free to give us the gouge!

Well we always have our RV. So no motel-- Essenhaus restaurant in middlebury. And for Best hamburgers in town it's the Flipping Cow. Just west and north on 19 from total value. Then for the best deli carry out it is the Martin Food store. They have everything- salad bar--hot & cold sandwiches --all kinds of complete dinners. At the corner of CR 4 & 19. Again just west of Total Value.

And remember free camping at TV if you buy there. Shipshewana large Amish community 15 mile to the east. Shopping & food there too

Not too sure about that February stuff in northern Indiana !!
