So we usually stay for 7-10 days, pull the trailer off and put it in storage there and then home for 3-5 days and then come back.

Next year we will hopefully get in 45 nights...which will cost 1620 plus storage fees for the summer.

Ours works out to about half the cost of just booking a nightly site for the whole summer. The biggest reason I find for the seasonal site is the trailer is already there and ready to go and you never have to call and hear " sorry we're booked solid for the days you're looking for ".

One of many downsides to living near a huge city.

if I could get this place for half , I would pay for 5 summers tomorrow but it is the regular nightly rate.

Yes I have had to take a semi service site coming back but usually can get on a full service within a day or two.

pain in the @$% but that comes with staying in the best place in North America

We leave, and have left ours parked at a seasonal site for the past 15 or so years. We, or I should say I love how easy the setup is when all that's required is unlock the doors and turn the water and propane on. We pay $100 a month, plus our own electric and satellite and average right around 100 nights per year. A huge bonus is our site is actually a mobile home site 90'wide x 150' long and the land owner pretty much lets us do as we please. We built a 45' wrap around deck, have a 125 gallon propane tank that supplies the camper, BBQ and patio heater. I bought a 12x16 shed where I keep a washer and dryer, fridge, scooter and al my fishing garb. Love not having to get stuff out or put up, and don't really figure we will ever go back to tow and setup camping again. Well worth the price of admission in my opinion.

Thanks again to each of you for responding. Happy Trails and may our paths cross some day.
