After a quick look, I have two I would recommend if you just want to be close to the city:
New Orleans West KOA | Camping in Louisiana | KOA Campgrounds
This one is in River Ridge, a nice, safe small city that is pretty close to downtown.

Pontchartrain Landing - A Secure New Orleans Waterfront RV Park and Campground
This one is in New Orleans Easy, right on the water, near Lake Pontchatrain. We go to hang out here in warm weather to eat, drink and be merry. It is under new management, so not sure how it is now, but they used to have a really good restaurant there.

If you do not mind driving across the Miss. River to get downtown, this is my favorite, Bayou Signette. Get a real taste of what the area is like.Bayou Segnette State Park | Louisiana Office of State Parks

Thanks Chickie. Safe is good and getting a feel for the area is better. We don't mind crossing the Mississippi at all. We appreciate the info.

Beefing Up???

At least to moi, "First thing is to beef up my truck as much as possible" sounds like wanting add capacity to a truck that may or may not be rated to tow the loaded weight of a 16' Scamp.

In as much as the OP didn't mention what his TV was, and that there are any number of compact trucks out that that are not rated to tow a loaded 16' Scamp, I was only offering a newbie information that many are not aware of when they get what might be their first towable.

Maybe the seller told him that it could "Be towed with any 4 cylinder pick-up" when he bought it, which isn't always a true statement.

It was only intended as additional background info for a newbie.

Hi: I got my '78 13' Boler a month ago. I'd hoped to be practicing driving and backing up before spring but still working on coordinating wires between her and my jeep patriot. Want to go out overnight on my Sunday nights off but first need someone to show me whether furnace and stove work. I can't wait to start making memories for my grandkids and feel my life will change drastically being a Boler Grammy.

Hello to all,
Very excited about finding this forum! I am on a major search for a Casita Patriot and wanting to find out about other small fiberglass travel trailers.

I believe it "disappears" when you reply. If you hit the back button on your device it will return to your message. Have faith, it takes a while to figure out how the site works. And welcome!

Welcome to our little world, Nancy. Hopefully we all can learn together. Any pictures of your unit, we love pictures. Also there are several rally's coming up this spring and summer which can allow one to view other member's units and get ideas on decorating and modifications.
