RE: Ever hear of this camping company? Harvest Host

It's not necessarily a scam but you misunderstand their purpose. They are not intended to provide sites for you to stay a week in the wilderness. The idea is a winery/brewer/golf course/etc... offers to let you spend the night (typically without utilities) in a field or back lot with the expectation you patronize the business. That is EXACTLY how HH markets to host properties and the intent of the program. It's to bring retail business to the host properties. The properties aren't RV parks nor do they have RV sites, but are perhaps situated that an RV could reach them and fit in a cleared area of the property so that boondocking is do-able. HH recommends you spend a similar amount to a site fee at a campground when you stay at a host property. That's also part of their marketing to the host property - camper X would normally pay $30 for a campground, but they will spend that $30 at your gift shop instead if you allow boondocking overnight and then leave. HH sites are not RV parks, and if one wants a multi-day stay, one is better served by looking for a campground/RV park.

RE: Least expensive EZ-Pass

One advantage we have with a NY issued pass is the NY Thruway's "Motorhome Plan" that charges us the same per axle rate as passenger cars on the NY Thruway instead of the normal large vehicle rates. A quick example, the E-ZPass toll from Exit 27 to Exit 45 is $15.70 for 2-axle vehicles over 7'6" tall, but with the Motorhome Plan, our toll is just $7.93, the same as passenger cars. If we're towing the toad, the toll goes to $14.57 versus $29.80 for tall vehicles with 4 axles. Does NY still require you to have 2 transponders - one for coach only, a different one for when you're towing? I do know to get the MHM plan, you have to send a copy of your current registration and a particular form - you can't (or couldn't) apply for the Thruway MHM plan online.

RE: Upper New York Fall Trip

You will need reservations. Make them now. Many parks in New England/Upstate NY close Labor Day. Since you're not from the area, stay off anything labeled "Parkway" in NY and CT. You're not allowed and you won't fit (low clearance structures designed for passenger cars). Don't rely on a GPS or Google Maps.

RE: Poconos PA to Bar Harbor Maine -- need advice

My advice is, figure it out quickly and get your campgrounds booked ASAP. Here in the North East it seems there are way more campers than campsites. Agree. The Bangor Daily News reported a couple of weeks ago that campgrounds and RV parks are already at record booking levels for this year.

RE: Are damage deposits at parks customary?

Have not run into it at a commercial or public RV park, but an ownership park where the sites are owned and optionally in a rental pool is a very different animal. Since the site owners are responsible for maintenance and repair of their site, I can see where a damage deposit would make sense. Regular RV parks would have insurance policies to cover renter damage, but individually-owned sites would not.

RE: Nashville Tn. in late June

The last (and only) time we stayed at Two Rivers, we discovered a) They are adjacent to a commercial bus garage/yard that operates 24/7 b) There are no breakers at the site hookups - they are all quite a distance away on a central board c) Many of the sites flood during heavy rain. KOA is a better option.

RE: Opinion on Resort fees

Just a ploy to list a low competitive price on the travel websites to make you click to see the real cost. Resort fee is nothing more than part of the cost to stay at the venue. Possibly they may not pay fees to the booking website on the resort fee. Similar to charging excessive shipping on ebay to avoid seller ebay fees. ^ This ^ May also be that the state charges hotel and/or sales tax on just the rack rate, not the additional fees. But the primary reason would be to mask the true nightly fee.

RE: Memphis

Definitely Tom Sawyer, but do have a backup plan and monitor their website in the event of a major rain event anywhere along the Mississippi. Tom Sawyer floods, and if there is a significant storm in the upper midwest it can cause the park to close for a few weeks until things dry out. They do also fill up quickly, so reservations would be suggested.
