Hey. We have purchased our first RV. We r full-time retirees (couple). Our rig is a class A motorhome (Fleetwood Flair 2002). We are considering boondocking in the Huron National Forest. Do any of you have experience there? Any thoughts on boondocking with a 34 ft rv?

If possible do a day trip in a car and check it out before trying to drive the RV into a road that you may regret
.


Please give me enough troubles, uncertainty, problems, obstacles and STRESS so that I do not become arrogant, proud, and smug in my own abilities, and enough blessings and good times that I realize that someone else is in charge of my life.

X2. Many of the forest roads in the Huron-Manistee National Forest are extremely rutted and narrow.

Seeing as the Huron Manistee National Forest is more than 437,000 acres, undoubtedly some of it is suitable, most of it probably not. It is probably safe to say none of it will be suitable for fulltiming in the winter in a fleetwood flair.

You might want to post in the boondocking forum.
