I'd have to say yes. 31 nights this year. Hopefully more in the future as our kid's activities demand less from us. My 15 year coaching career is coming to an end. I think.

You are doing just a little better than me. We only have about 4 nights out this year total and we bought a new trailer this year, a 2013 roo. Upgraded from a 2007 HW 276 popup. The first 4 years we were out about 20 nights easily, but it has gone downward. Last year we went out once. Mostly due to not wanting to camp in a popup anymore. We upgraded and love our trailer not but the kids got back into sports this year......Every weekend in the late summer and all of fall has been hard. I'm ready for some winter camping quite frankly to make up for some missed camping. I feel like next season is going to start early.

I think we get our money's worth out of ours, somewhere around 110-140 days a year for the last 6 yrs.

From Jul 12 until now, we have 226 and will end the year with 259. So, we're getting good use out of ours.

OK, I'm feelin a bit happier about having to cancel our camping trip this weekend, and driving to Tampa Bay, FL (DH's home stompin grounds) instead. We're bookin a trip (local) for Oct. 25th!

Goin with a fried we made here on this forum. He doesn't know it yet, but I'm bringin a big pot of my cold weather special....

Venison Chili!

I'm thinkin' we'll fit one more trip in between this trip and our T'giving trip to Hot Springs. The weather is getting SO nice here now....it didn't even get to 80 today. Nice cool wind blowing right now...squirrel huntin time!

As far as weather's concerned I don't plan on letting winter get in our way, unless we get one of those freak ice storms we get every 8 years or so. THAT would result in "Francis" stayin put in the back yard until it thaws. I can't even imagine trying to pull a TT in ice...has anyone here ever done that?

Back on topic, I was disappointed with life and family obligations putting the qui-ee-tous on camping dates, but things are lookin up!

We didn't get our TT until June, so next year it's gonna be ON!

I used to think that people with RVs were outa their minds. For the cost of ownership, fuel, space rental, etc. one can do a lot of cabin and hotel rentals. However, I go to competitions around the country, and I go fly fishing. At the competitions, there are usually folks that stay at the flying field and camp. Every night is a party with many musicians, etc. Staying right on the river when possible is so much nicer, too. To me, even though I don't use it as much as I'd like... it's worth it.
