I hate to put a damper on things here re: parking, wherever! I can understand why some places are reluctant to give open permission to park at all. Case in point, in CT there is a casino set upon a hill over looking a river. They put in a parking area just for campers of all sizes and shape, FREE!! It was wonderful and still is but for an additional step in the process. You now have to call security and they will register you with identification registration etc, etc. WHY YOU SAY? Well it seems that one of our fellow camper owners decided to dump their tanks in the parking lot as they left, Cass A as I was told. We must all do our part to protect what we have otherwise oh well, all we will be able to say is,we used to be able to______________.

Bill and Janice, We're lovin' it! (Airstreaming)

I guess that Colonial Airstream in New Jersey can only sell Airstreams 23' or smaller.

It is not illegal to sell or to own a camper wider than 96" it is only illegal to tow them through those states.I tow campers for a living and more than likely you will never get messed with I was only trying to enlighten people of the rules for the highways of the states they are traveling through. Especially if you are on the interstates or any access roads.

Having been a trucker for 40 years I sometimes was annoyed at seeing RVers in the rest areas. RVers usually have options as to where to park where truckers do not. Having said that I really don't see a problem with parking at a rest stop but I would not be so bold as to set up camp.

On our trips from NE Texas to the Rockies over the last 35 years we have almost always stayed at the Dumas free campground. We would usually plan to stay there on the way back because there once was a restaurant just east of the campground and many years ago this was the first TexMex food we could find traveling back east. Also on our way west we would discover the things we had forgotten to pack by the time reached Dumas and we would shop there. The campground has always been clean and peaceful.
The only negative thing I can think of is the railroad track is not far away but I do not recall ever being disturbed by it at night.
