We like going to Watkins Glenn state park but all the electric sites are small. Even our previous 21 ft Hybrid was a hassle. Oh well. We are still close enough to drive for a day though..

The replies reflect all the different ideas of what is good camping. For us, we want all the bells an whistles of a resort type RV park. Maybe because we live so far off the beaten path that it's a challege just to get to the highway. On the other hand, a daughter and her husband go camping with his Corvette. They really rough it. So the OP just needs to make sure he knows what suits his needs (and I hope his main consideration is what the family wants) and go from there. Maybe he's smarter than me. I've learned that what I think is going to be perfect often turns out not to be the case. So our first camper was bought with the idea in mind that we'd want something different once we got our feet wet. Sure enough, we wanted a larger camper and were able to sell that one for what we paid for it, only losing a few hundred dollars of improvements we'd made. Good luck!

I never had an issue with size... but yet again I always check websites (campground sites, Google Map, sometime reviews) to get a feel for what they have to offer.

I also book in advance, I never trust my camping nights to "HA don,t worry they will have some room" approach like my father still has!!!!

So when I book via online site or by phone, I tell them I'm 35' (although I'm only 33') long with a wide slideout!


This Summer I was gone for a 3 week trip (changing spots almost daily) and never had any issues with lenght...one time with width...but nothing dramatic!

CERTIFIED - I had the same reaction. But considering they met while ocean kayaking, it's not so surprising. They are different!

Haha, I'm not judging and whatever works for them is great. I just thought it was funny.

The advice I got from another TT site was buy the floor plan you like.....I did and am very happy.

Good luck with your decision.

When I pay to park my camper somewhere, I expect a paved spot, 50 amp service, water, sewer, cable, internet, a picnic table, a swimming pool, and a shower building. A shuttle service to whatever event is going on nearby is also preferred.

I understand that other people got their campers for different reasons and have different expectations.


Here in Texas, one of the nearby state parks has 50 amp service available and the slots are long enough for the longer fifth wheels. Another nearby state park has only 30 amp service, and when I drove through, none of the spots looked long enough for my 38 footer.

30' + is not really an issue. Just requires planning and usually CG reservations ahead of time.
