To date we have not tried seasonal mainly because we love our beautiful Ontario Provincial Parks. Some offer seasonal sites but the ones reasonably near to us have a five or six year wait list for an unserviced site. The closest we have come was a two month stay in a Florida "resort" last winter. We have not ruled the option out as a possibility in the future if we get to a point where we no longer enjoy the journey and just want to enjoy the destination while still taking our dog. Options. Always one of the beautiful aspects of rving.

Wow. Some pretty wide spread comments. I say to each their own. If traveling the country suits you, great. And the same goes for those who choose to be set up permanently. We all bought our rigs to enjoy the outdoors and to get away from hustle of every day life. I've been thinking about buying another camper to set up at a seasonal site.

I've tented for the better part of 40 years. Then we got a pop up and had a seasonal for 1 year. For us the seasonal was a little too "urban ". Call me crazy, but I enjoy the set up and tare down. We enjoy moving around but each to their own.

We prefer to travel for the variety. We live in a beautiful country and we like to travel to see as much of it as we can. We can't travel a lot but I think I'd be stir crazy being tied to the same place all the time. Now that we've moved to a TT and basically have a second set of everything for the TT, packing is reduced to little more than clothes and food. For me the only advantage to a seasonal would be not having to fuel a V8 engine as a daily driver because the TT is the only reason I need a pickup.

For us, we got a seasonal site about 2-3/4 hours from our home in the Washington, DC Metro Area. The cost of a seasonal site wasn't much more than the cost of uncovered storage near home. Our site is basically just a waypoint for us en route to campgrounds in the north east -- we always seemed to pass right by or through this area on our way to just about everywhere we went, so it makes sense. It is also our storage site. We are at a very nice campground, well-known to many -- where all seasonal campers are required to wash their RVs at least twice a year, but encouraged to do it as often as they please.

It is very handy for those weekends when you have no plans, to just drive up there, turn on the water, extend the awnings and set out the chairs and take it easy in the woods. We keep our seasonal site looking like a normal, transient campsite without all of the crazy stuff that some tacky seasonals have. Nobody would know we are seasonal campers unless we told them.

Our Windjammer is ready to hit the road at any given time. We have not grown roots at our seasonal site like most seasonal campers do.

My seasonal site is my own backyard. Invested in a pool, fire pit, screened porch all so I could pretend the family was on vacation when I came home from work. We love lakes and rivers and tent camped, but could only get out 2-3 weeks a year. Now retired and with an actual RV we are enjoying exploring the country. We've been talking about downsizing from our house, but the 3 now grown kids all stayed local and now the grandkids are enjoying my "seasonal" site - just getting to be too much work.

Seasonal for now. It will be our second year at the same place. (Moose Hillock in N.Y.) Great spacious sites and 45 minutes from home. Works for us now. Stay weekends till school is out and then there most of the time.

Interesting. I see both sides here. We kept our travel trailer after buying our Forester and my husband suggested we park the trailer somewhere monthly and go in between motorhome trips. Lol. Guess that's both worlds. I just sold a house in Mexico and do not want to be tied down to only one place ever again.
