Crowd? What Crowd?

You can be anywhere you want to be . . . and there are a places neither you, or anyone else want to be!!

Maybe you should rent a motor home for a shakedown cruise before you decide one way or the other. While I lived in Europe we rented a small motorhome and drove to Sweden. That trip made it easy for us to buy a VW camper and we have never looked back. That was in 1970. A week rental is not all that expensive. And you can then concentate on which kind of camping you want to do. I prefer to find the free camps that don't have amenities for a couple of days, then take one night at a full facility to do the laundry, watch TV, etc.
Don't give up!

I'll chime in, too, even though I'm not on that end of the country...we much prefer pubic parks & campgronds (county, state, and federal) to commercial RV Paks...the public places give you more elbow room because their bottom line is not making $$...the commercial ones try to cram as many spaces as humanly possible into their park, and that makes for cramped quarters. We have done both...but have had the best times with the public situations. We haven't boondocked a lot, but we are edging in that direction little by little, now that we've got our feet wet and feel more comfortable with what we are doing (after 3 years of RVing...just 5 months with the AS, however...before that it was an SOB)...even if you don't want to boondock, many of the state parks have at least partial hookups.

Good luck and we hope you give it a whirl!...TB

Don't give up so easily Try it and U deceide Dont let other deciede for U.
Lot Of Luck

Thanks for the nice, sweet, encouraging replies........

We'll be at the N Ga Fairgrounds for the Fallalluminum Rally @ site 48(around 5:00 ) Obviously things aren't near as "bad" as I was thinking, even if I don't want to go within 200 miles of Disneyland . Open, uncrowded places are of my tastes, & Big Bend State Part in Texas is definitely on my list .
We'll see what happens, & I'll keep everyone posted as to what purchase I may make. Thanks again.

Big Bend is awesome, we went last april and there were no crowds. One of the campgrounds there, had maybe 5 rv's, it was nice and quiet. We got our airstream last feb, i would never go back to sleeping in hotels again, to many bed bugs. hehe

I gotta agree with comments on hotels.
Especially when CSI first hit the air, and they liked to shine the black lights around a hotel room to show all of the -ahem- biological spillage around the room.
Sure its hollywood, and maybe the exagerated it a little, but I prefer to take my own bed sheets thank you.
Along with my own pillow, comforter, bed, toilet seat, toilet, TP, shower, coffee maker- you get the idea.

Theres a nice varitety of campsites out there. Unfortunalty the current fad with privatly run places is to bulldoze the site to stack as many 50' busses in as possible, because that's where the money is.
But, as many have stated, there's plenty of federal, state, county & municipal campgrounds out there. Along with many private places that still "get it". Finding these gems is half the fun.
