GO there! Check them ALL out. Plan to spend several hours - sit down, pretend you're trying to brush your teeth, use the throne and close the bathroom door at the same time, etc. Brochures and floorplans are useless compared to actually visiting the lot. (BTW negotiate a minimum of 15% off everything.)
I'm betting along with some of the others that in a Bambi will win your attention over the Basecamp... but I could be wrong.
I have a friend whose home was damaged by a tornado. She'll be camping in my "Sparestream" next to my Airstream for about 2 weeks until the damage is repaired. A Basecamp as guest quarters won't work.... a Bambi would. Imagine your mother-in-law coming to visit. Would it be nice to have "guest quarters" for her (or you if you choose to vacate your bedroom) that don't include seeing her teeth in a glass of water first thing in the morning... much less hearing the hacking cough that takes 45 minutes for her to clear while you're eating breakfast?
Glad you've joined our humble assembly.
Foiled again . . . you would really put your mother-in-law in an aluminum can in the driveway? She must not be as tough as mine . . .
