Default Hello from Ebensburg, PA.

Welcome to the site PA! What type of camper do you have there? Do you do an annual campground space rental or something like that? There is a place here that we are considering that option, pay an annual rate and the spot is yours for the year. You can do whatever you like with it, most people add on wood decks, brick firepits, etc..

I have a 31' 1985 Citation travel trailer. My mom used to stay in it during the spring summer and fall and had a seasonal condo down in Florida for the winter.

The campground is great. I pay a yearly fee, and I get water, sewer, and electric. They only give us water and sewer from the end of April to the end of October because of freezing temps. We are allowed a "deck" of sorts on the side of the RV as long as it does not have a roof or enclosed walls. We put our awning over the deck and it works nicely.

I don't have to pay for winter storage, but I do still have to winterize it. We run into some issues with the gypsy moths if we have a bad season since it sits in the same spot all the time but it is really nice to have a little place to get away.

We like to take our female dogs out there when they are in heat to get them away from our males. We breed them but try not to let them breed with each other.

Welcome aboard Seckenr1.

Sounds like Mom is a "snowbird". I love that term.

That sounds like a really nice setup, I am going to check around and see if they have anything like that here, just never noticed probably. I am a tent camper mainly, but am hoping to upgrade in the future to a TT. That would be great to not have to worry about storage fees and hauling all the time. But do you ever get tired of going to the same place all the time?

Welcome-to me, if you are staying at a campground you are camping!!! Sometimes I think it would be great to be grounded somewhere-that way if the husband goes out of town for business (or is just plain getting on my nerves) I could take the kid and go. She loves to camp. Of course she probably would think dad would have to be there to help us, but I am a seasoned enough camper I would do just fine on my own.

No cricket, I actually don't mind camping in the same spot all the time. You can plant flowers or cherry tomatoes on the site and have a personal touch. You get to know your neighbors. It is nice.

To keep a camper road ready is a lot of work. We just don't want bothered. Not to mention how much it costs to tow now with gas being SO expensive.

We get to cook in the firepit, we get to get away from the housework, and we have a place to put family up if they visit during the summer. It is nice.
