Florida Vacation

Considering stay in Florida Winter of 2015/2016. Anyone thought about potential "Sink Holes" in that state. What are the risks?

We have spent the last 8 winters in fl.and have not seen one sink hole.I think it would be very rare if you had a problem with them.

Lived 60 years in Florida. I have seen sinkholes because I went looking for them. Having a problem with them while camping is about as likely as getting struck by lightning or shark bit!
Enjoy your vacation.

Here you go.... just have to figure out where you will be camping.... odds of your RV swallowed by a sinkhole.... I would worry more about the lightning strikes.

Just my thoughts,

Thats and interesting thought! Would insurance cover a camper that fell in a sink hole, or would that be considered an "act of god"?
