Record number of consecutive weekends

I'm very proud to say that in the 8 weeks of RV ownership, 6 of those weekends I've been in my RV. My wife and I are not full timers, and have jobs. IS this normal?

How many weekends (or trips) do most people get to take in their RVs?

Brian

Our trips vary in length. We always do 2 full week trips each year, in the beach direction. Then there's usually 1 weekend trip each month. I travel to York PA for the TCA Train show twice a year (3 day trips) and then visiting our daughter at college a couple times. Our season usually starts mid April until mid Novemeber.
Congrats on your purchase, also glad you've got to use it so frequently already.

NO! This is very abnormal! I suggest you and your wife pack up and go someplace peaceful and quiet this weekend, like some sort of country setting, to think about what your doing!

Wish I could get away like that. Kind of hard to do with the tt in the shop right now. That's okay, I'll get my share of trips in before the camping season is over.

Congrats on the camper. We usually go away for a week in Feb (Disney), 2 weeks in the summer, and as many weekends as possible. You know the old saying, 'use it or lose it' :-)

I am glad to hear that you're getting that kind of use out of it. We love to camp every chance we get, but lately, my wife's schedule hasn't allowed us to get out but one time this year so far. We're hoping next weekend is number two, but the last time we thought that, they changed her schedule that week and we had to scrap the trip. The "benefit" of being employed, right? Take care and keep enjoying!

Not trying to hijack this thread. Can you, would you elaborate about disney? I would love to try camping there, my wife is not so sure...

Can you give advise about the high's and low's of camping at Disney? I am looking for actual experiences.

thanks,

shineysideup

..and everyone.

Yeah, we have so many places close by that we can go over the weekend that it makes it really easy to take off after work on a Friday and come back late Sunday. We used our HTT about twice a month. I hope we're able to keep that schedule with the new DP.

Last year we took 3-2 week trips, 2-1 week trips and only 3 or 4 3 day week end trips.
As I posted earlyer we will take a 6 week trip this year with other trips to come.

Start a new thread. I'm sure several of us have camped there. I have.
