Ok... "both". Each has its inherent advantages and disadvantages. I have had multiple versions of both over the years. I was able to do both, and for less than the cost of most of the new trailers alone.

the last word...

Our second year of owning our AS, we were in a state park in northern Colorado in mid-September. It wasn't crowded, but that didn't matter as the spaces all had plenty of room between them. But they weren't big enough for any big MoHo's.

The first night we were there, it snowed about six inches. The next day, everybody cleared out. There were two campers left in the entire park - and we were the only ones in our sector.

We asked permission to move (CO state parks are on a reservation basis) and we moved to the most beautiful spot in the entire park, overlooking the lake.

We were there for three nights (before reality set in and we had to take the AS back to Houston). On our last night, still with nobody around us, we had a huge bonfire and brought our satellite boom-box outside.

At 2 a.m. we were slow-dancing around the bonfire to beautiful music from the boom-box. The snow was gently falling. It doesn't get any better than that.

Nobody complained about the noise. Nobody was watching us (otherwise I wouldn't be dancing!!!!)

It cost $12 per night.
And a MoHo wouldn't have been able to fit into the spot.

'nuff said.

Hey, its the only way to be sure!
