Decking

I did not do a comprehensive check on this site . . . We are seasonal campers and the DW wants to have a deck. I don't want the traditional home deck but am looking for other ideas. And if you can provide pix and some details that would be wonderful. I have some ideas already but welcome others before we build it this summer.

Check Seasonal Camping Thread. Lots of pictures. Lots of topics.
My first priority on deck was to have it at level of door so easier to carry food and stuff in and out without balancing while going up and down stairs.

Check out "jrobitraud's" deck at his seasonal site. He built his in 4x8 sections. Looks pretty neat. Velcro

Thanks for the pix. We already have wooden stairs to the door. My plan is to have the deck just barely off the ground so one can enter the deck from anywhere. Was thinking of using cement post holders to keep wood off the ground and allow water to run. The base could be 4x4 treated wood . . .

Pics of our deck. We built it when we had our previous TT which didn't have a slide out on the door side. I built it in sections but for the amount of work involved I didn't think it was worth it to reposition the rear section out from under the slide for the additional couple feet of deck surface.
