Where do you stay most often with your RV?

What type of park or campground do you frequent the most with your RV? Do you enjoy the comforts of home so seek out a full-service RV park? Or are you more the boondocking type — holing up on government lands in scenic places, far from your nearest neighbor?

What’s your preference?

Most common is staying at private property (mine or friends) with 1 or 2 RV hookups.

I bought two acres of Sam Houston National Forest in Coldspring Texas close to Lake Livingston, I set up electric, water and sewer and a place to park my older Holiday Gambler class A Motorhome. I spend 2 months there and 2 months in Arkansas close to Beaver Lake on a little piece of land I bought there (less than an acre) let’s me travel but be where the kids know where I’m at (I’m 70 and have heart problems)

Why are the polls not able to be viewed? I’ve had this problem for awhile now – the poll never shows up on my computer! Aargh!

Sorry, John. Other readers have had the same problem. From what I understand (and I’m not good at all with technical computer stuff), the polls aren’t as secure as the majority of the newsletter so your computer might be blocking it. We’re working on getting everything up to the HTTPS level in our newsletters, etc. In the meantime, you could click on your security options and choose “allow for this session,” or you could “back off” your security settings a notch. Yes, I know you’ve written before about this. I’ll remind our IT folks that it’s still an issue. They’ve been busy getting the Forum going, the Stray Voltage Patrol up and running, etc., but maybe this is getting to the top of their priority list. I’ll check. We apologize for the delay, but thank you for your patience in the meantime! —Diane at RVtravel.com

We live in the city. Our RV (Jayco 330RLTS) is parked 125 miles from home on 20 acres in the middle of a forest. Some times we can go 2 or 3 days without hearing a man made noise. We take off and use it all year long.

We get FHU sites where we volunteer, 5 or 6 months/ year. Otherwise, a mix of everything else available.

I do some of all of the above. I mostly dock in RV parks or resorts with full hookups. But I do boondock in state parks, BLM, and NFS areas. I pavement camp @ Walmart, Cabelas, etc. While in transit I have overnighted in some rest areas. I haven’t as yet stopped in a truck stop to stay overnight, I try to leave that for the truckers. I never stay in NP’s or State Parks “in-season”, too noisey and too crowded. Oh and I have “driveway camped” at a relatives house. It took me about a year and a half and a few bucks to get my rig modified enough to comfortably boondock w/o feeling like I was trying to relive the experiences of the original settlers in wagon trains, LOL. It is finally setup so I can boondock for 8 – 10 days in comfort and w/o constantly checking my underarms…..

In the pits at Nostalgia Drag races.

We go to dirt track races and almost always camp in the parking lot which is usually a field. Dry camping needless to say.

I have a motorhome primarily to use to attend dog events, so I am usually camping onsite at the dog show (either boondocking or if I am lucky with an electrical hookup only) and I generally “pavement camp” at Walmarts or in rest areas when I am in transit. I rarely stay in campgrounds.

All of the above, depending on what’s available when we get ready to look for a place to stay for the night. We almost never make reservations ahead of time because we usually have no idea where we will end up. Footloose and fancy-free.

I always love to see that 90% of campers want hookups. Keeps the deserts and forests empty for me!

“Other”- Usually military CGs, most that I have been to are full hook-ups, but the prices are hard to beat.

In front of my son and daughter in laws place with a 50 amp hookup. Or in an rv Park.

Most often we look for FHU, but we boondock and use COE, military famcamps and overnight while in transit in Walmart parking lots, Cabelas and rest areas. We also own 2 acres of property in North Central MN for our home base in the summer, as we’re full timers.

We use our motorhome about 7 months of the year. Summer camping and Winter Snowbirding. 50% of the time we’re in RV Parks, but we also Boondock and use Camp Walmart. BLM camping is also a favorite. We just returned from a 6 week trip to Alaska. Only one night was spent at a full hook-up RV Park. On that night I only hooked up to electricity.
