We are on a seasonal site as well, but our last week is Holloween. As of November 1st the water and electric will be turned off. I can leave my rig on the site all Winter but I am going back up on the 6th of November to pull it off and bring It home. We are already thinking about Spring and I have some new mods for the camper so that will help time go by faster.

Just this weekend and the next. We are also an a seasonal thet closes Nov.1.
We will winterize next weekend. But the good news is we will be back the end of March 2010. This is a sad time for us because we look forward to the the weekend get away and will miss our friends who live to far away to visit.

Darn season is too short May till October for us but sure beats boating season or pool season here in Ontario. At least we can fully use our rig from May till October and when retirement comes along even better as it will last all year.

Our seasonal site also shuts off electric and water on closing weekend..We are 2+ hrs away so covering the camper gives us a bit of added comfort, we arent always able to make the trip in the winter to check things out, so this works for us...Seasonal has its pros and cons as anything else..Never ready to close that final weekend though...We too are needing some mods, so the winter spell will be a nice time to plan and be ready in the spring...Wishing all of you a safe and happy holiday...Oh ya, and to all of you that can still camp,,,have a great time..

We will go 1 more time and then shut it down. We keep ours in the driveway so I can work on it at any time or hide from the world which ever is most important.

We are also fortunate to live in sunny Florida and refuse to stop for the season. However the rig is on it's way back to Indy for some major repairs under warranty (will post in another thread soon). When it arrives home we plan on using it as much as we have so far this year. We use ours a bit differently then most. We have a Wildwood XL Sport so it's sometimes a toyhauler but even then we use it to camp in once on location. We use it for regular trips with the Granddaughter and sometimes it's used to go to the motorcycle shows we promote and host/emcee. So our season here in FL is never done. We sometimes forget that everyone else has to stop riding their bikes and stop using their campers.
