You mean the pictures of those solitary lakeside campsites surrounded by mountains and nobody else within 5 miles aren't real?

Oh they exist alright. You need go west of the Mississippi River. You also need to do some research to find them. You will be dry camping so prepare for that. Colorado would be a good place to start your search.

I have found that a back up camera is the best way to avoid arguments. I have no problems backing, just that my family becomes 3 more trees, never visible in a mirror.

[QUOTE=RPAspey;591536]They don't tell you that the best spots at your favorite campground will be booked the only weekend you can get off work in the next 2 months.

X2

We were tired of booking 2 months in advance to have boiled steaks.
Our trailer with wheels is now stationary(oxymoron ).
We are now seasonal and love it, we are out every weekend now.

So actually, what they don't tell you is, sales are way up.
Heard of any new campsites lately, thought not............

I've often thought of starting a new campground. I think it could be profitable. I'm just not a good businessman. I can engineer, design, and fix about anything, but don't think I could run a campground.

Here in central PA, farms sell out to commercial farmers or residential developers.

Actually yes, there is a brand new campground and “resort” in MO on Hwy 67 just across the highway from St. Francis State Park. We discovered it on a drive-about last week. There was a large bill board with the name of the resort and the website address and that was all, no directions on how to get there. It took us three attempts to actually find the campground. They want $32.50 a night for full hookups and the park only seems to offer a 3 acre fishing lake, amphitheater, and a clubhouse. No cable, no wifi, no swimming pool that I could see, and no playground that I could see. If they’re still in business two years from now it will be because of their accommodations at the inn and lodge portion of the resort. Oh I forgot to mention, roads and sites are not paved.
Here’s a link to their website. Stone Park | Lodge |Missouri | Events - stoneparkmo I think they just opened up in the fall of 2013, not sure though.

That some weight distribution hitches/sway bars will make noises so crazy... That you're certain it's the hitch doing its thing but a couple times a year you climb out and check anyway.

The look on my DH face when the fiver dropped into the truck while leaving RV dealer(after having some accessories added). And.. The look on the RV peoples faces while they were waiting for me to explode.
