If you stay anyplace except Liberty Harbor, you will use up a lot of your time and budget just getting into the city. Commuter trains run less frequently and cost far more than the regular PATH subway a few blocks from Liberty.
Liberty is not a pain to get to; it's a mile off the highway, on a good-size road. A straight shot through several traffic light intersections, then you're at the turn to the road to the marina.
A seaman meets a pirate in a bar, and talk turns to their adventures on the sea. The seaman notes that the pirate has a peg-leg, a hook, and an eye patch.
The seaman asks, “So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?” The pirate replies, “We were in a storm at sea, and I was swept overboard into a school of sharks. Just as my men were pulling me out, a shark bit my leg off.”
“Wow!” said the seaman. “What about your hook”? “Well”, replied the pirate, “We were boarding an enemy ship and were battling the other sailors with swords. One of the enemy cut my hand off.”
“Incredible!” remarked the seaman. “How did you get the eye patch”? “A seagull dropping fell into my eye,” replied the pirate.
“You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?,” the sailor asked incredulously. “Well,” said the pirate, “It was my first day with my hook”
It is possible to survive without sanitizing everything. Just run the hose for a minute before you fill the tank, to wash out anything that has accumulated. And when you're done, screw the two ends together to keep out debris and varmints.
Actually Lazy Daze's are affected by leaks, and until fairly recently had multi-piece aluminum roofs. The roof seams have been the source of many of the leaks. LD's do seem to last a lot longer overall, and due to that and to owner neglect of seams typical of all RV owners, older ones often have suffered leaks.
My 1994 Lazy Daze had a one-piece roof, and I'm pretty sure they had gone to one-piece several years before that. The edges do need a new roll of Eternabond every 8 or 10 years for maintenance.
Whatever the campground rules are, make sure they are posted conspicuously and enforced consistently. Especially quiet hours.
I was surprised at the number of posts about restrooms. One of the reasons I like RVing is so I can use my own bathroom!
290 in MA runs between the Mass Pike and 495 north. It is not a toll road but does go through the city of Worcester. Can be slightly white knuckle at rush hour because of construction and somewhat narrow lanes if you aren't used to it. Going straight to 495 from the Pike isn't much longer and usually less stressful. .
+1. Worth the extra tolls.
On that itinerary, only I-90 in MA and I-95 in NH and ME are toll roads.
Liberty Harbor is very basic, but you can walk a few blocks to the PATH (New Jersey subway system) train right into Manhattan that runs every few minutes. Any of the other locations will be more scenic and comfortable, but will eat up a significant part of your day with trains and their schedules (and fares).
