I drove down US Highway 85 in North Dakota today. You wouldn't believe how many "hastily put together" RV parks I saw, complete with cardboard (or whatever they could get) sign that says "RV Park" and it's out in the middle of nowhere! And all you see are RV's, trailers, campers, all in a big parking lot on a field, out in the middle of nowhere. I couldn't tell if they actually had hookups.

Yeah yeah, probably for the oil workers. Anyone on here doing that in North Dakota?

We drove up the western side of both South Dakota and North Dakota on our way into Canada and home to Maine. We saw the "thrown-together" type RV parks mentioned above. It is good that people have jobs, but the oil industry has certainly changed this part of the country.....and not in all ways for the better. We were warned about lack of RV spaces around Williston, as well as the heavy truck traffic, both of which proved to be true. I'd advise not venturing through this area without some preplanning and firm reservations. As it was, we ended up spending several nights at one of the worst, and dirtiest, RV parks we've ever stayed in (and, yes, I have reviewed it on this forum).

Does anybody know about the market for used RVs up there. I have a reasonably well-built 35' fiver that also has the polar package and an Onan LP-powered generator. Its market value is generally below what I still owe, but if I could pull it up there and get a good price I'd be interested in the possibility.
