Why do you feel bad for paying more? Larger sites cost more, which is why most lie that they are shorter.

Why should you feel bad about depriving a larger rig of a site?

You can go online and check out KOA, or I can send you a list of RV parks whose rates increase with size. Maybe Michigan is different.

I've heard of " premium " sites more but they have fancy landscaping, grill, ect.
Just checked all 9 campgrounds were staying at this year on line and rates only change as you go from W, WE, WES. Or time of year.
Maybe the koa fancy landscape grill sites are longer also.
We never get them sites.

1. When we bought our last camper we thought our truck would work to pull it because it was right at the max for our truck....Nope - bought a new truck.

2. When we bought our new camper we thought our truck would work to pull it, because it was right at the max for our truck...Nope - bought a new truck.

I think my DH just wants an excuse to get new trucks.

Lots of other sins but those 2 are the worse. On a positive note, I LOVE our 2018 Ram 3500 dually and when we upgrade to a new camper sometime in our future (and we will), this truck SHOULD be able to handle it!

I've been completely happy with both my purchase, and after-purchase support, from Camping World.

That same strategy has worked for me... After getting my last new truck we traded the trailer in and ordered a new motor home so now I need a new plan!

We have a Puma 31QBBH bedroom up front with door that opens out into living room /kitchen area. Well DW did not close the bedroom door and put the slide in with it still open. I went out to do something started putting the slide out and heard wood cracking, stopped slide going out, it caught the open door and pushed bedroom wall into bedroom. After a few very loud choice words since this was the 2nd time I have done this. With slide in it is hard to see if door is open or closed. After about 1 hour repair which was not as challenging as I thought it would be. I now have a label above slide buttons for doors latched? She is in charge of the inside setup and tear down.

Embarrassing yes for 2 times but I still posted

New Camper, we have 1 trip in early March... covid shuts down the world. Well, the dealer called me and say they have the parts in for my warranty work that we noticed when picking it up, bring it in!

Being nice, I kind of figured that they are struggling with lower workload due to people not being able to travel and thus not having service work done on their camper, so, I say sure. They called Friday afternoon, I hooked up and took it to them Saturday morning, that was in early april. I picked up this saturday (2 months later) and go inside and there a not-pleasant stench in the air.

Apparently on the one trip we took, we grilled some frozen burgers and threw the rest in the freezer. At home, we're plugged in and they would have been fine... well, for 2 months of not plugged in time, they we NOT fine... we are still battling the smell!

What's bad is that I had intended to do a sweep through everything when I dropped it off, but, the spot they had me park in was too close to the camper next to me to get my steps down and I was pretty certain everything was fine. I also only expected the unit to be there for 2-3 weeks max since they "had the part in", which of course they did not.

Oh well, we camped one night on saturday, the camper itself was fine after a half day, but, the fridge is going to be a work in progress. We're camping again this weekend, so, I need to get it addressed in the next couple of days.

we bought a small ozone machine on Amazon. that thing is a life saver for nasty smells! just dont run it while you are in your camper.
