Hello from new TT Owner...where should I go?

Just upgraded from a Popup to a 2014 Primetime Avenger ATI 27BBS. Looking to do more traveling with the TT. What are some of the best campgrounds and/or places to camp based on scenery, entertainment (on site or around town), friendly campers, etc.

If you have any pointers of tips for a newbie I would be open to those as well. I want to be as prepared as I can when we start pulling long distance.

i think it would help if you listed the parts of the country you're interesed in.
that would help narrow it down a bit.

We are Thousand Trails members and have come to enjoy them. True, they're "RV parks" and we aren't "camping"- but for activities for the kids and a pretty consistent experience, they work well for us.

We probably would not pull at the way to CA but we have talked about a trip our to Yellowstone area. We are also planning a trip to camp at Disney in Orlando next year. Midwest would be places I would be more likely to go on a long weekend or take a couple days off work and spend 4-5 days. If the camping is exceptional at a certain place though we would like to try it. So I am pretty open.

There's lot of different sites for various RV park reviews. Personally I prefer to use Good Sam (RV Camping and RV Parks – RV Campground Search at Good Sam RV Club) as I like it's map and filter options, but RV Park Reviews (Reviews of RV Parks and Campgrounds - RV Park Reviews) also has some good information.

When you're just starting out I suggest you stick close to home for those first couple of trips, work out any bugs in the trailer, as well as any bugs in your procedures, the tolerance level of the family to camping, etc...

Once you're all comfortable camping and you've got your processes down pat, then start planning those longer road trips.
