I looked into it and the place I wanted is 350.00 per month so 350 at one place or 350 in fuel is the way I looked at it.

So I will spend my change on fuel and go local a couple times per month.

If times get toooo bad I will park it at the family place on the TN river.

We can't afford it either - we're lucky in that we there are spots here in LR by the river. However, they fill up quickly. We've found storage space near Lake Ouachita for our boat, so at least we won't have to kepp towing that back and forth to the lake......

We are fortunate to have two Blue Ridge Parkway campgrounds within 30 minutes of home. Very close but a whole world away. One is halfway up a mountain and the other is in a valley by a nice stream. We can load up and head to one of them on a Thursday night, spend the night and still get to work the next morning, and return for the weekend. No hook ups but we manage.

We just got a seasonal for $1250 per year and can camp 12 months of the year. Yes we have to keep our lot up but for what they want for trucks and now the gas to put in them I think I will enjoy this. Of course water will be off for the winter camping but it could be fun.

This is our second year as seasonal.
I gotta tell you...we love it. We didn't go seasonal to save money. We did it because it's less work for us...and we wanted to use the trailer more often. Our kids are grown, and most times it was just the two of us wondering the campgrounds. I really do miss going to all sorts of different locations! I told my wife I want another small trailer so we can still take off for some other location once in awhile. I miss the whole 'nomad' experience.

Going seasonal is a real it is much more like having a 'cabin' at the lake rather than RVing. The older I get, the less I like all the chores that come along with hitching, leveling, backing, packing, dumping, filling...
you get the picture. When your kids leave the take on their chores..and get to do all the driving. I needed a break! I'm a firefighter by trade and work goofy schedules as well. We didn't get out camping near enough. That all changed last year, as we slept in the camper a record number of days! The other thing I like about it? It draws my children & grandaughter back to spend time with us!!!! (You young parents will understand me!)

In a nutshell, I love the seasonal space. I do find it to be more cabin-like and much less like RVing. I do love both methods...

We would like to have a seasonal as well, but the money tree is bare. Between College for my daughter and Tech school for our son and the mortgage and everything in between that, it is on hold for right now..... I need to play the Lotto, but first I have to check down in the sofa cushions for a dollar!!!

I am in the same boat as most of you. Short on $$ to go different will be here before you know it. But, when I was a kid, we were seasonal for 16 Wareham was so much fun, but back then, things were alot different. We have picked a seasonal campground we want to go to, but the chances of getting in may be slim. Also, I guess I wont spend 3200.00 this year in gas, but next year...well..its just to early to tell. What kills me is the thought of gas going up .10 - .20 cents in a matter of 2 days...when will there be is on the rise...gas is sky high....and everyone talks about going green, and hybrid Suburban takes e85 fuel....but do you think there are filling stations near me....not what good is it? why bother taking the time to come up with cost saving, energy efficient cars, if you cant use the resource....
