Room at the Inn?

This past weekend my oldest (21) just graduated from college in our hometown. We had unexpected guests (good friends from out of state) show up and all the hotels were booked. I thought not a problem I can setup the camper in the driveway. DW thought that was tacky, but I did it anyway. Our guests thought it was great. It was about 19 degrees (f) out Friday night, no problem for the heater. I didnít setup any water though. It had shore power.

Have you used your TT or MH as a spare room?

"come here Baby I'am getting really cold right now"

you did them right
and let's face it
in many cases
one's would perfer to be out there
by themselfs
((my wife and I would))
romantic if you know what I mean
as Elvis would have said
"come here Baby I'am getting really cold right now"

next morning in the camper
"thank you Baby
thank you Baby
thank you Baby very much"

if you friends do not have one back home already
they may want to get a trailer or camper now ??

We haven't done this in the winter time yet, but we've done the same several times this past summer after we built our pad and had 30 amp service installed.

The grand kids love it. They were able to watch tv or a movie in comfort with the AC on. They even popped some pop corn in the micro. I also turned the frig on so they could have some cold beverages.

I haven't hooked up tt with water yet. I wouldn't mind hooking up water for a weekend though. I could always take the tt to a local dump station afterwards. I am thinking about building a dump station as a project for next summer.

had one put in here seven or eight years ago
have only used it maybe ten times
but
it sure is nice
and if someone wants to set up there for some time
it is the way to go
nice to not have to drive to dump
it is a long ways down the mountain

We used our "Little One" Thanksgiving weekend! The only difference we slept in it ourselves - even un-winterized it so we could have the third bathroom. Well worth the cost of an additional 2 gallon of RV-antifreeze to re-winterize.

We have used ours a number of times for visiting relatives. We usually have electric, but no water/sewer. It works awesome as an extra bedroom (or two).

We've used our trailer a number of times for family & guests.
Never any complaints.

Yep, we've used ours for guests when the house isn't big enough. We've also used it after bad storms when the power was out for 6 days.
