Just mentioning that this site is getting harder to read with each “update”. I use an ad and tracker blocker for all my surfing and for the last week I have been unable to view “View replies” to comments, the “voting” is gone and to post this comment, I had to turn the adblocker off.
I cannot complain, you have to make the money, but I do not like being tracked with my clicks so I will miss out on a lot of interesting comments.
If anyone will reply to this comment, please post a new comment, not a reply as I will not see it (I will not turn off my adblocker again)
FYI it is Google analytical, Facebook and the other metrics used here that I am opposed to.

My daughter told me last summer to stay safe at RV parks is to hot spot from your phone then RV internet. I found how easy it is to do once you know how. Gotta love these young whipper snappers.

It would appear they caught the “person of interest” involved in the death of those two campers on padre island.

I’ve been reading your articles for the past year and have enjoyed the wide range of opinions and informative subjects. Keep up the good work.
One item I would like to comment on is Camping World. We purchased our new 5th wheel at CW and have been pleased. At closing the finance guy had a lot to say and was a fast talker. When we got home we read the contract and pricing and found items we agreed to which we really didn’t want. With in the allotted time we contacted CW and request a refund. It took a few months but we received a refund of ~$4k. We were pleased.
Secondly we had a few issues with the 5th wheel. CW addressed them in a timely manner which again we were pleased. Even the salesman was honest, pleasant and helpful.
These completed issues may be a rarity but I wanted to let people know that CW is not all bad.

To Mr. Smith: (I know you’re checking out the comments this morning so here’s mine) : I’ld really like to agree with you, but then we’d both be wrong.

Frank, you just did agree with him. There is no rule in the world why people can’t disagree — that’s why we have two major political parties. If you want to compare a two-party system to a one-party system, then compare ours to the ’30s and ’40s in Nazi Germany. We should be thankful we have the ability to disagree. Let’s just not belittle others whose politics differ from our own.

The wife and I have camped for over 42 years having 1 truck slide -on, 3 Class C’s and 2 Class A’s the last being a 2011 Winnebago Sightseer. Some needed repair and others not but getting nicer as we progressed .Read so much about quality of new ones and pre 2013 are the way to go, but can’t speak for the new ones only what I read online, but out of all of them the Winnebago has been impressive.
All units need repair at some point and mostly the Winnebago needed correction of bad repairs to water lines feeding the toilet which I believe was due to improper winterizing . Did have two issues I contacted the factory about through their website. Not only did I receive a detailed response but engineering drawings also.
Just wanted campers and future campers to know that there are great units out there with companies that support them. The new to us Winnebago quality has been impressive,from built in access panels to sofa style seats in the dinette.
We classify ourselves as Glampers , picking up and going when we can. Hope I have been helpful and see some of you on the road. Safe travels to all.

Has anyone researched the best way to get internet service if you are at a state park or somewhere that doesn’t have internet? I know you can buy hotspots, but I’ve never done it and don’t know what is the best/most economical approach.

I use a “hotstop” 24/7. I get it from Verizon as part of my monthly bill.

You might want to go to a company operated cell phone store for your wireless carrier. They can show you if your phone has a “mobile hot spot” feature. It only takes a few minutes to set it up. Then wherever you are, if you get a cell signal you can log in on your laptop to the internet.

If you have cell service, hot spot through your phone or a discrete hotspot device.

If too remote for cell, satellite internet is only option.
