I have my trailer parked on my land on Chesapeake Bay - zoning doesn't allow permanent trailer parkeing or permanent structures like decks (especially within 100' of water). I built square - about 42" deck plates out of 2x4" and 2x6" with 1 1/2" stringer screewed underneath. Then I bolted a 4x4" frame to lay the plates on. I alternate direction in a basket weave pattern. It isn't permanent and can be easily rearranged or moved as needed. Each does weigh about 75# though. I kept it low to avoid need for a railing.

It's an 8X32 foot. Technically we're not fulltimers, just seasonals. We go up there every weekend from April - October.

Also, as promised...pictures of the little landscaping we did. I will probably be adding some lattice to cover up around the deck! We'll be staining it as well this year.

Very nice! I wish we were allowed to set the stansions into the ground like that. That was our only restriction. We are not allowed to "permamnently" attach anything to the site....lol

6" X 6" posts are 16" in the ground resting on 2 12" X 12" in each hole. so the deck can actually be dismantled. i did not use any concrete. so if i decide to leave the campground(which i don't plan on any time soon)i can just pull the posts out of the ground(sand).but i still wish i could have built it larger,about 1/2 the size of yours.

That's a good idea, I'll wonder if they'll let me do that, but everyone who has a deck up there has the same ugly cinder blocks or dek blox. Having the big deck is definitely a plus.
