wood working

I do custom furniture building and I could build slide out drawers for RV kitchens just like the new coaches have today. Do some RV parks or state parks restrict outside working at your camp site? Or do they have a location that for that kind of work?

Each individual park will probably be different. I have been to a couple of parks that have storage areas that RV'ers have parked small enclosed trailers in the storage area and worked out of them. One park where a couple of people was running a business from their site.

You would need to contact the campground to ask. They could only say no.

Most resort type parks usually are much more strict

I would defiantly say state parks would have a problem with that.

However, an inside job would work better at most parks if you can keep everything inside the coach. If you can do all the work inside, nobody needs to know. Even better if your vehicle doesn't have a company logo.

Just don't run your router after 9:00 p.m. LOL

Seriously, I have seen some parks that have a wood shop as part of the amenities offered.

Unless you build the drawers by hand (no power tools), I wouldn't see a problem. However, if I'm your neighbor and you fire up that 20,000 rpm router or run a miter saw, circular saw, etc....I think I would object vehemently. Even using a hand saw constantly would be a distraction that wouldn't be appreciated.

There is one private membership campground I stay at they do not want me using ANY power tools.. no saws, drills or ______. (Same for all campers there) other places.. not so restrictive.

A lot depends on how you do it.. Crafstman are genrally allowed.. Workers, not so much.
Home is where I park it!
