Doeesn't this fall under the phrase grandma used to use about "locking the barn door after the horse is stolen"? According to the article, the camping ban had been the store's policy for some time, but had not been enforced.
Out from under?? LOL last night's big news was that the 2 inches we got on Saturday night put Boston over the previous record for most snow in one season.
I've been watching my neighbor's lawn chairs emerge from the snow, but now the seats have disappeared again. But after all we've been through, 2 inches was nothing, it just freshened up all the gross dirty snowbanks along the roads. The piles that had been 7 feet tall are now down to 3 or 4 feet. The ground was frozen really solid before the snow started in January so it's slowing down the melting process.
… Sounds to me like the OP wants to hit and run. Since driving,parking getting around NYC in an RV is next to impossible, that would mean he needs a place to park, and the ferry, from the NJ side...).
Good catch -- I guess most of us just scanned right past that reference to "the apple." So Liberty State Park was the best suggestion, though it would be wise to check on their parking accommodations and access for big vehicles.
I live in New England about 4 hours from Liberty Harbor RV Park, so I've stayed there several times on the way home from trips farther west. It's all about location, location, location, and quick, economical, easy access into NYC. If you stay farther out from the city, a lot of your time will be eaten up in commuting.
Reading, renting, and visiting RV shows will give you lots of information, but you need a basis for actually processing it, so my favorite suggestion above is to visit a campground and talk to people who seem like they might be undertaking an adventure like yours.
You can't live in a house full time one day, and then start living in an RV full time the next. You need transition time in which you own both and take short trips so you know whether it's a good fit, what vehicle and equipment suit you, etc. A woman traveling alone needs a reliable vehicle: don't scrimp.
The link above with lots of blogs is very entertaining but leaves out my very favorite, which got me started on my own RV adventures. Andy doesn't post much any more, but his story is so detailed and personalized, it gives a good feel for the experience of transitioning to full time.

Traveling with a pet puts major constraints on you, especially with a dog: How long you can leave the vehicle unattended, where you can park (especially on hot days and some campgrounds don't allow dogs), etc.
There are several reliable mail-forwarding services, you can just pick one. Likewise, handling all your finances (banking, charge accounts, etc.) online is easy and most of those accounts want you to "go paperless" anyway.
When I was growing up, we had a snoopy neighbor who looooved to gossip. Mom always said, "Don't tell Rita anything you wouldn't put on the front page of the newspaper." Growing up with that habit of screening everything I say has served me well!
Before choosing a funeral home, you need to have some idea what services you need -- cremation or burial, visitation, plot, etc. The simpler your needs, the less you need preplanning.
My mother wanted to just be cremated with no ceremony. My dad priced a cremation service a couple of years ago when she had scary surgery. The when she died earlier this year, the price for the very same cremation package at the same place had dropped by $100! Dad's theory is that there's more competition.
While it is correct that there is very few hard and fast rules, there is in fact acceptable etiquette. Not every one who overnights at Wally adheres to them but they do exist. They are like the "unwritten rules" that govern many things in a polite society. If you do nothing else, please go in and introduce yourself to the manager on duty. ...
Many of these etiquette "rules" are very subjective. WalMart themselves probably don't want their managers tied up with chatting with every RVer that comes by. I've stayed at dozens of WMs across the country and have never spoken to a manager.
You do need to make sure that your chosen WM allows overnight parking; in addition to municipal ordinances there are shopping malls that prohibit them in their leases. Call ahead and just ask whoever answers the phone whether they permit overnight parking "for customers who have RVs." You don't need to talk to the manager. While you're at it you can ask if there's anything else you should know like a specific area of the parking lot you should use, or should avoid.
