Good Sam CG directory has a rating system that includes a rating for the facilities' cleanliness and presentability. Some GS members have complained that the ratings are not always accurate, though.

About side baths, I've always felt like the side bath makes an interior feel closed in. A bath at one end or the other keeps it out of the way, not cluttering up the middle of the trailer. I guess I like the feeling of width as I walk down the aisle. I must not be alone, because Parkliner owners seem to feel like their trailers (front bath, of course) are quite spacious.

Different strokes....

I agree with Norm & Ginny - if I can stand the campground showers, that's where I head. My standards are pretty low, but I have turned down a few. Spent a year "camping" in RVN & didn't see a shower for 6 months.

If you think the front bath makes a Scamp "seem" smaller, then just put a mirror on the bathroom door! VIOLA! Double yoker!
Problem is you now have the illusion of twice the space, but who are those extra old people who are now staring back at you and crowding up the place????

Don't forget... a window (even a large front window) is nothing more than an inefficient wall when the curtains are closed!
Hey! maybe that's why so many campers have curtains which look like trees or outdoor scenes... endless horizons by simply closing the curtains!

Umm...I dont quite call it "trouble"....it's called "maintenance" that has to happen to ALL campground/park facilities. This one had just been heavily neglected for what ever reason. But YES, we'll definitely be back! As I said, it's a SUPER beautiful park near a water front that's unbeatable to me.

While some may think it was just "complaining", they did thank me for bringing it to their attention. So to me, it was a win-win situation for all.

Mike, when you reach 72 your just so happy to be there appearances are way down the list. Ginny tells me she sees 16. She is the best.

We do have a full length mirror on our bathroom door.

We have had two places where I would not want to use the showers, one public, one private, and would not want to go to those again. Practically everywhere is fine if not quite nice. Better than I expected when we started camping. Some people have the idea that just about any campground shower would be awful. Not the case.

As far as two old people looking back at ya in the mirror. I have the same issues with the new cameras out today, they are just not as good as the old ones. The new ones make you look old. Carl

Marky,

Our bathroom is 27" deep and about 36" wide. I think it's right for a bath room not enough for a shower. The Casita had a marginally longer bathroom but again, I never found it adequate for a shower.

Our Sunline had a smaller bathroom then even the Scamp but had a separate small regular shower, not a wet (boat) style shower.

That's a big restroom. I own a 17 foot Casita and the area behind the toilet is not used. This is a really big waste of space in a small trailer. I've seen some of the RVs with a closet behind the toilet.
Marky!

Safe travels
Sometimes I scrub the sink before I brush my teeth to feel comfortable.

It is like picking up trash on the beach, but I only get the urge where I can make and see the difference. It felt good doing it in NL where I could make 100% difference on those near pristine beaches with just one armful or a shopping bag!

Isn't Newfoundland amazing? We just met a couple who've been traveling for 15 years from NH and they've never been to NL. I gave them the NL booklet and of course sang the praise.
