I havent seen this addressed anywhere. I want to sell my house, buy an RV and travel/work. I am also a potter. While I dont need much space for my clay work, I want to fire it in my own kiln. Can anyone tell me if this is possible at an RV park? Electric Kilns come as small or as large as needed, and from 110v/20amp to 240V/100 amp and everything in between. Thanks for the input. Kathleen

Given that they (at least as far as I remember from the last time I used one) take time to heat up and cool down properly, and that they need to heat a piece for a long time (12+ hours, or more, for larger pieces) I'm not sure how the campground would respond. You might have to pay extra for the extra electric usage, and some owners might not allow it, so finding a spot where you can use the kiln could be an issue. Then you have to consider the vibration/jarring/etc. from transport, which can easily damage the fire brick lining - I would consult the manufacturer to see how well any given model will tolerate that much movement...
