*Chuckles* I meant no offense folks

I agree we all do things differently and that is great!!

I guess I should have prefaced my original post "in my opinion"

We've had one for 10 years and I guess we've just never had to use it! LOL. We must be out sight seeing or something when nature calls.

I rather take a dump in the woods than take a dump in a public bathroom!

We use all amenities without full hook ups. Just spent a week in a Electric only CG. We carry 225' of water hose to reach the nearest facet. We get through the week refilling water twice and have to drain a little off the Kitchen Grey Water into port tank. And we use two ply TP with no issues, the laundry soap/softener on the route home does wonders for a clean tank.

Just a question for those who put their used TP in a trash bag instead of flushing it: Where do you take that trash bag when it's time to dispose of it? Just wondering.

We put the small bag in the big bag with other trash and put it in the outside trash can and or dumpster that campgrounds provide.

Sounds like an Ontario Provincial Park.

That is a long hose. Must be a pain to haul back from the spigot, coil up and then tote. Just wondering - ever think of one of the 45 gal water bags you can put in the back of the truck and then fill the trailer tank from that?

Moved from a tent to a minimalist vintage pop up then a full TT. As a friend that has hiked the appalachian trail always tell me, having a TT isn't really camping.

Our TT has A/C..our house doesn't. And being in the TT is a lot like being inside any building - I miss the 'outdoorsy' feel of a tent or pop up.

Enough to go 'back'? No.
