I guess we'll just have to disagree. I don't stay in RV Parks or Resorts, no hookups for me. That's closer to camping than RVing.

I don't stay in RV resorts, I stay in campgrounds. And the ones I stay in have everything from rustic sites (no utilities, you boondock in them) to electric-only, electric with water, and then full hookup (with sewer). Many times the RV Resorts don't have public facilities because the RVs are all fully contained. My sister stays the summer in an RV resort, and no public restrooms at all

Glamping = Glamorous Camping. This can be something as simple as a tent with lace curtains, or a dolled up trailer like mine (which some also refer to as 'glampfoolery' or 'frou-frou').
Silicone = the devil's bane of sealants.
Slab-Side or Big White Box = the newer style of campers with laminated panel sides.
Belly Band = the horizontal seam around campers like bolers/trilliums/scamps.
IMO = In My Opinion

Many "campgrounds" have a variety of sites available as Pam stated.
And guess what, there are even "rv resorts" that have just "rustic" sites.


Can't assume a campground is just a campground!

I'm sorry I forgot about "pretend campgrounds".

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

(not referring to slinky's either)

SWMBO = She or Spouse Who Must Be Obeyed, see MAHNH

Can someone please start a couple of lists in alphabetical order? 1 trailer lingo, 1 net/life lingo.
