I can't get the new TT out until next week, but the kids want to sleep in it tonight. I must admit...I do too!

Anyone else ever camp in the driveway?

Yes, we have done it quite a few times. Why? I really can't give you an honest answer. Just because we wanted to lol.

I say DO IT !!!!!

Your neighbors do not mind if you camp in their driveway?

Mike,

When talking to potential new owners, I often suggest this. It may be in your own driveway with an RV or at the marina with the new boat. But it is a great way to find out what you forgot or never new before recovery is inconvenient and maybe costly.

Go have a fun first night.

We may have done this, but I was so long ago, I really don't recall.

I often recommend that folks do this at least once before they go away on a trip....so they can see if everything is working, and how to operate the appliances, etc.
As long as the neighbors don't have an issue, I sure don't see a problem with it. Our MH is on the side of the house (not on driveway), and we've slept in in quite a few times....(when I was replacing the floor in our bedroom).....and we've also used it as a guest house when family comes to town.

Go for it....[emoticon]

We spent the first night in ours in the drive. We also do it from time to time just because we can. Nice to have it here and not in some storage lot.

There might be some local ordinance against "living" in the RV but for just one night I would do it. When we have guests, they get the master bedroom and me & dogs go to the MH. We are parked on the street, but I do not advertise the fact I'm sleeping in it - can't see any difference than if I am working/cleaning in it.


See ya' down the road!
