Hi all -
We are the crazy Geezers currently full-timing in our 13ft Scamp
... 15 months and still going strong! We second the comments of several others:
1. Try a rental unit to get a feel for the (very) wide range of RV accommodations available.
2. Membership in PassportAmerica has saved us a bundle. We have found delightful parks with nice facilities (only 2 'NOT' experiences in 3 years).
3. We use USPS and US Army Corps of Engrs parks too - great locations and good amenities.
4. We tend to avoid places with 'resort' in the name, as we don't usually participate in the activities and they are often just paved "parking lots" with little or no ambiance to recommend them (a pool and WiFi are our must-haves here). The highest we have paid for a space was $43.00 at the KOA at Bar Harbor, Maine when we visited Acadia National Park ... BUT, our campsite was surrounded by large trees and lovely rock formations and looked out over the water ... pretty wonderful, and worth it. We don't splurge like that often (and the lobster was deeeelicious, but that's another story - grin).
5. Always being 'at home' at the end of the day (own bed & linens, choice of own meals, etc) is worth everything, and, as stated, we don't disrupt folks' lives when we visit - we just park & plug in.
Well, I'll likely think of more advantages after signing off, but you can tell from our thoughts we are CONFIRMED Fiberglassers - go for it, and if you don't like it, you'll easily find a buyer for your rig. Wishing you happy memories and safe journeys, L 'n D
