So sorry for owners who never know what type of campers are coming through the door. I am happy to see owner enforce the rules. A review I wrote recently was negative because management knew of the problem but would not correct it. Most rules are to correct issues of the past. Once in awhile a rule might seem silly but most are for the safety of all campers. Have never seen a campground that did not post rules so they should not be a surprise.

After breaking my knee cap and having surgery last month (now home recouping and doing PT), I have spent a lot of time doing research on the 'puter for our upming retirement trip. In early March, 2016, we will take off on a one year tour of the country. I have learned a ton of helpful stuff reading through this forum. (Joined last night.) It's great!

I started out with tents of all shapes and sizes in my youth, then graduated to pop-ups in early adult-hood, having had two. In my early 40s switched to travel trailers: 1st was a 1995 24' Terry Resort (loved that trailer); 2nd was a 2001 26' Trail Lite with sofa slide-out. Loved it, too.

But now, due to numerous ortho issues (rotator cuff surgery last year, an Achilles tendon injury 3 mos ago and now this knee), I'm looking for EASE OF SET-UP and this spring plan on purchasing a Class C MH, 28-32' range. Only 2 of us will be traveling, with a rare visit from a relative or two at a few places along the way.

Planning a flexible itinerary now. We'll be leaving from our home in Texas and hitting highlights in AZ, CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, SD, then the upper Midwest and Great Lakes, on to New York and New England, then down through the mid-Atlantic states and finally across the south back to Texas, ending up in the Austin area. Through posts on this forum, I'm able to identify places we may want to stay for overnights or extended periods. I am so glad I happened onto this site. I've read posts that are absolutely hysterical and downright bewildering; but mostly I find great info about campgrounds all over the country.

So thanks to everyone who posts this valuable and very helpful info!

Good advice all the way around, Lindsay. Thanks. DW & I communicate beautifully and have enjoyed spending time together for 20 years. Never gets old. "Retirement" for me, after the trip, will involve some volunteering for a good non-profit, grandkid spoilin' and exploring the surroundings in our retirement community of Pagosa Springs, CO, where we already own a home. (Won't retire until Dec, 2015.)

This trip has been our dream for the past 5 years! REALLY looking forward to it.
