Looking for covered storage in or near St. Augustine

HI all, I own a site at Bryn Mawr in St. Augustine and before leaving last year I purchased a park model that we will be staying in and renovating while there this year between November and May. I have a 35' Dynamax DQ320XL (2015) and am looking for a covered or indoor storage area to park in in Januay, February, March and April....Not having any luck finding a place and thought I would post here for suggestions from those who may live in the area. I'm also looking for a spot with electric so I can keep it plugged in. I will be using it a few weekends each month....any suggestions.

RE: Stops along the way from Fla to Michigan

We snowbird from Michigan to Florida every year for the last 14.....Here is a route we enjoy. From Michigan: Nashville..great place to spend a few days on the ride down. Grand Ole Opry, Opry Mills, and downtown honkey tonks, General Lee dinner cruise.. Music Valley Drive has 3 nice campgrounds. Two Rivers, KOA and Jellystone. Shuttles from all three to the major attractions. Next we shoot over to the Knoxville area: Dollywood for the kids, lots of touristy stuff but also great hiking and touring in the mountains and foothills....many many campgrounds. One year we went Memphis to Nashville to Florida. In Kentucky you can stop at one of the many caves in the area for a day trip and many of them have campgrounds adjacent or very near. Mammoth cave is cool and so is the one you take a boat thru...can't remember the name. Chattanooga has a great aquarium and a trip up to Rock City is worth it while your there. I think the campground we stayed at was Holliday which is on a civil war battlefield and burial ground. In Michigan the UP is beautiful! I prefer to travel up US-23 to the mackinaw bridge and over. There are great state parks all along the shoreline and lighthouses to tour. Many small all american towns and not nearly as "touristy" as the west side of the state. I think Mackinac Mills campground is on the lake also with a spectacular view of the bridge and mackinaw island....which by the way is an absolute must. Take the ferry to the island and spend the whole day. No cars just bikes and horses and buggies. A real piece of american treasure. Don't leave out a boat tour of Pictured Rocks in the U.P. BTW....taking the Nashville route vs. I-75 is about a 30 minute difference in time between Michigan and Florida. Done it both ways, straight up 75 and the detour to Nashville then back up to 75 or I-69

RE: Distinction Between C+ & Super C!

As others have said a "C" is a "C".......However, there is a difference between a class C motorhome and a Truck Conversion just as there is a difference in a Class A and a Bus Conversion (prevost, bluebird) Here's one that will also make your head spin......a few years back, some Truck Conversion Manufacturers started putting "class A" on the title. My first Dynamax (Grand Sport 450 UL) had on the title under "type" class A. I read somewhere that Renegade began doing this also on the IKON.

RE: Jayco Seneca vs. dynamax force

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXMJrRQ3SVkWhy would you even make a video about how fast you can knock out a product. Anyone should be able to figure out that a fast throw together time does not equal a good quality product. Jayco sure proved it by my unit also. One thing you will note with ANY Dynamax is the build quality. I've been to the factory and they only work on a few units at a time. Probably because the demand is much less with the high sticker price. Coming from a Prevost, I will say that the materials and construction methods used in the Dynamax are head and shoulders above the competitors with the exception (maybe) of the Renegade's which are also put together well. I believe in the Dynamax "force" the materials used may be a step down from the XL but the build quality should be comparable since they run down the same lines.

RE: Jayco Seneca vs. dynamax force

Dynamax XL is a nice quality made vehicle. I just got a 2015 340XL and I owned a 45' Dynamax Ultra for 4 years. High build quality and very few issues. We sold our 2005 Prevost for the new "little" Dynamax so we could travel easier to state parks and out of the way places. We love it.

RE: Northern Michigan

On your way south consider taking US-23.....along the lake huron shoreline. It is the "Natural" side of the state without the traffic and tourist traps like in West Michigan. About 2.5 hour from the bridge you will find Harrisville State Park where you can set up camp right on the beach...literally, it is 10 feet from the sand and a beautiful state park. You'll pass many of the states lighthouses like Presquill, Sturgeon pointe, and 30 minutes south of Harrisville is Tawas pointe state park and lighthouse. Many, many small towns with quaint restaurants and shops and a much slower pace than the west shore of Lake Michigan.

RE: What's the price "tipping point" for you?

Location is key when considering pricing AND the time of year. A campground right off the freeway for an overnight $28-32 seems fair. When we are traveling to a destination more than a day away the DW and I like to stay at a campground one night and the next in a Wal-Mart or rest area. It seems that in just about any "tourist" area prices are between $48-$90. For instance if you want to stay near Naples or Orlando "in-season" $68-$90 is the norm. We really don't have a "tipping point" so when we want to do the tourist thing we know we will pay more.....if we want to relax for a week, two or a month, we find a camp that has some decent amenities like a pool, hot tub, nice grounds, a few activities and off the beat and path and we can easily find them for $28-35 per night even in season.

RE: Any thoughts on Four Winds Super C

I camped next to a guy who had the 550 and had been driving it for a year. He said he had very few problems with it, drove great and it did look very nice. If I remember correctly it had 3 slides. Of course I'm a bit biased with my Dynamax (2nd one) and I have yet to find a super C manufacturer that has a better build quality on the coach part and of course the M2 heavy is built on a million mile chassis. I like the fact that just about every city traveling down the interstate has a freightliner service center and or cummins. I suppose there are a ton of Ford dealers but not all of them will work on the 550 chassis.

RE: Haulmark Super C

I'm Baaaaack......Well, as some may remember I had a 45' Dynamax Ultra 450UL for 4 years. Sold that in 2012 and bought a 2005 prevost XLII and LOVED it. This last winter while in Florida we bought another site in the resort we go to in St. Augustine and plan to put a park model on it so we felt the Prevost was just too big to let sit for 4-5 months and wanted something smaller again so on the way home from Florida we sold the prevost and bought a 2015 Dynamax DQ320XL and love it! Best part is my wife can help with the driving now and it is soooo much easier to maneuver for short trips and to take to state parks, which we like. Don't get me wrong, NOTHING drives like my prevost but it sure does feel good to be back in a small truck conversion.
