I acquired my current used rig, 2005 Sunnybrook Solanta 3310, on August 1st.
My seasonal spot runs May 15 - October 15. So we had 1/2 season, or 10 weeks.
We spent approx. 40 nights of the 10 weeks at the campground.
Long enough to find out that the bunkhouse design was not conducive to needs.
Hence, we are trading it in and have ordered the a new Jayco 38 FDDS.
We're looking forward to spring delivery and the full season (5 months) 2016 season!
We're hoping to go almost every weekend and at least 3 to 4 full weeks!

This was our inaugural year with our own TT. We had 3 camping nights during spring break, the trailer's maiden voyage. For summer vacation, we logged 10 nights, then added 3 more over fall break. So we totaled 16 nights the first year. We would like to average 20 nights for the first couple of years, then gradually increase that as we and some friends begin doing some RV based mission trips.

31 nights for us, in the first season with our new Jay Flight SLX 165RB, including very delightful trips to the New Jersey shore and Williamsburg, VA areas. (I retired at the end of August.) We liked it so much that I just traded the TT in for a 2016 Jay Feather 23RLSW. Maine and North Carolina are on the agenda for 2016. Can't wait!

Since we live in a Bungalow and travel in a 33RLDS I would have to say All of them.

Except for a couple of nights I spent 365 days in my designer last year. And plan to do the same in 2016, but did spend 3 nights in a motel this past week due to roof repair. So I guess I can only claim a max of 362 this time next year. Someone correct me if I forget.

This was our first year with our new lightweight travel trailer after years of tent camping. We camped a total of 28 nights over 8 different trips in 2015 - mostly dry camping at state campgrounds within New York State's Adirondack Park. We pick sites within hose reach of water spigots that are widely spaced within these campgrounds. We have purchased the following items to assist with dry camping: Yamaha EF2000IS inverter generator, 150' of drinking water hose, water thief, SmartTote2 portable waste tank, and a second 20-lb propane tank.
