Great idea! Thanks. My wife recently discovered something similar that WINERIES are doing. We have not tried it yet but it looks awesome. There are over 500 wineries that participate!
Check it out at's free!!
Just a very modest annual fee!

Sounds like a good idea. Down here in Fl the local epa and conservation groups are putting more and more restrictions on what people can do with their property even if you are out in the country. They don't believe in personal property rights.

Now thatís not to say the big hotel chains arenít trying to buy up as many politicians, local & state, as they can to, uh.... influence regulations...

Please try to keep it that way. We're way beyond going back. Did you know the county epa is the only agency that can enter your property for inspection, and bring anyone else with them.

I'm sure the guise is, complaints and safety. But there is always an agenda.

Already happening, a lot of the you can't park in this Walmart is being done by cities and not Walmart and many elsewhere have talked about how this was lobbied into pratice in areas with a lot of parks and RVs that come through.
Totally Agree!! Its disgusting Taxi Drivers Rioting (in france)? This is how industry evolves, something better comes along and replaces something else. it been happening that way forever.

And dont people realize less regulation is one of reasons these companies are so successful.

Just hope they(gov) don't regulate these companies out of business.

I think this is a great idea and something to keep in the wings when looking for a place to stay... I've often wondered when traveling in more rural areas if one were to stop at a farm house and politely ask to pay for a few nights of dry camping on their property if some might allow it. (I've never worked up the nerve to do it though! ) We've see some great places we'd love to stop for a few days if we could. It's sort of like the Courtesy Parking options that WBCCI has (and perhaps other RV clubs), where you can offer for driveway (or other situation) for a few nights of camping as a courtesy.

My "second act" is as an elected County Commissioner. Outside municipal corporate limits, at least in my part of the country (TX) there is no zoning, hence no prohibition to using private land for such a sporadic use. That's not to say that if one opens up their private land to a number of boondockers at the same time on a continual basis, that county government might not start looking at sanitation issues. I see no comparison of this, to AirBnB.

I like the idea of being able to explore a rural area, rather than the traditional packed RV park. Now if only there were some landowners in Utah for me to try this out.

Just my thoughts after looking at the website. Full-timers are looking to put on their balance sheet they have seen great things and camped for free. I do a lot of research on great places to boondock and a lot of full-timers give great deals on where to go. To pay 30-50 bucks on a farm..which I grew up on a farm and many of us see them along the way..the experience here has to be fun for that kind of spot for me.

We could also buy small plots of land all across the USSA, equipt them with fences and hook ups & use them as private RV harbors. When not there: nothing to steal.

That's what I'm doing.

I have 80 acres in Montana on top of a mountain. I'm looking for someone to volunteer to travel 3 miles on an unimproved jeep trail (with steep embankments) to TEST the route... . How about Luckier as the volunteer? He can bring the wine....

That sounds right up my alley! I'll test it, but I'll be leaving the trailer behind. If the road isn't too narrow, I think my van can make it.

I'll give it a good go either way.
