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.

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.

There are the usual weight and rating terms, which are not at all specific to our trailers, mostly not even specific to trailers, but relevant to towing:
GVW = Gross Vehicle Weight (total weight of vehicle including contents)
GVWR = Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (maximum value of GVW allowed)
GTW = Gross Trailer Weight (GVW, specifically for a trailer, normally just use GVW)
GTWR = Gross Trailer Weight Rating (maximum value of GTW allowed)
GAW = Gross Axle Weight (total weight carried by an axle; one value for each axle)
GAWR = Gross Axle Weight Rating (maximum value of GAW allowed)
GCW = Gross Combination Weight (total weight of tow vehicle, trailer, and contents of both)
GCWR = Gross Combination Weight Rating (maximum value of GCW allowed)

Perhaps I one point I belonged in that list, but I'll bow out of the list for now.

If anyone takes this on and wants hints on maintaining a list published in the forum, feel free to PM or e-mail me for suggestions on methods.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

I would say just "A couch or sofa that turns into a bunk bed"... it need not be a two-level bunk arrangement, although there often is some sort of upper bunk over a gaucho.

For sure. Most campgrounds I have been in have a choice of what services you want. Not many RV Parks offer no service sites, but I did come across one last year near Zion.
