all in all we usually get what we expect given we frequent the same handfull of parks most times. i guess if i could change something id space things out more and add more bush between sites.

The wife and I have been camping long enough that most places we go we've already been there and know what to expect.

BUT,this one particular CG that we visit often, renovated the sites using chip and tar.....we got that stuff all over the inside of trailer.

Another thing that leaves me questioning.....why do some back in sites have the hookups on the living side of trailer ?

Everybody thinks they need a fire so big it smokes up everybody for a mile around.


So big a world, so little time to see.

back ins with hookups on tthe door, right side? I have seen this design for motorhomes to pull in headfirst then back out due to the land Built some in my camp after seeing it done well in Spring Branch, Tx. MHers love it, their view is forward, open to scenery, and easier to back out of than into.
issue is that the camp MUST designate MH Only for a site so built. Sadly, not all camp operators are up to speed on rv design and needs.

Seems to me that on sites like this is might be advantageous to have them on BOTH side, that way you do not limit who can use it. If done during initial build or infrastructure upgrades, seems like a minimal investment to make the site always available.

The camp in Spring Branch, Tx. did it that way because of the hill in front, So did we because of the drop off. There was no way to pull in a trailer and get the Tow unhooked and around. To place hookups on the side where a trailer could also use it would be in the way of slides, risk to damage to unit and pedestal.
Placing hookups on both sides works for buddy sites But where is the $ sense in it? A 15' sewer hose reaches under. $500 wont do it, for that, then theres the issue of door to door when they arent buddies.
Many A MH ers have a ' class' concept to towable units. This is clear in the many MH Only ( Flat Bus Front Only, no Truck front Renegade types alowed) Its their right, same as an HOA has rules, To us rules limiting type, age, ( of unit and occupants) smack of some idea of supremacy due to a type of unit, , dare we say bigotry.?
We are so glad to have sold our camp.
