Aren't the choices just amazing? We bought our RV so we could take our "condo" to many different places.

AMEN! Give that man a cigar! You hit the nail right on the head.

A fancy resort like that is the absolute LAST place I would want to go in our coach. Way too fancy for my taste and way too expensive. It would be just like checking into a fancy Naples hotel. No thanks.

Yes, exactly. And all while being able to sleep in my own bed and have my dog comfortably at home for 20% of the cost. (I am bring my own room so it should be cheaper) while enjoying all of the amenities. We're looking forward to checking this one out.

RVing has all kinds of options. This is only one of them. We enjoy doing this type of RVing sometimes and sometimes we enjoy a camping adventure with the grandkids getting away from it all. We can do it all, enjoy doing it all and all with the same rig.

It doesn't meet everyone's taste, but nothing does. Thank God that we are all different, it would be boring otherwise.

We liked the area so much we moved here 26 years ago. Nice choice for areas Brian.

Some people enjoy state parks, others enjoy RV resorts. It's a good thing we all don't like the same thing or there would be no room for all of us in the same place

I've always been a bit puzzled by why a positive statement about something on this website draws certain amounts of negativity. Some of it borders on snarkiness.

I do like that we can go anywhere in our 4 Seasons on wheels, no matter if it's a resort or a campground, which I like too. My folks spent years dry camping on BLM land in Quartzsite and though not for me, I think it was AWESOME for them. When they got beyond 82, they went for a Park Model and my mother used to say she missed the desert! God love her, she loved the simplicity of it all.

my best memories as a child were from the national parks and KOAs we went to. I can't wait to go back to the Mt Rushmore KOA in fact for a family reunion being planned!

p.s. taking our pooches along is why RV-ing beats hotels and airplanes any day of the week!!!

Brain, some people buy an RV for a "free" place to stay. I had one of those and had a ball with it, a 73 Winnebago Chieftain. I took that MH to places 4 wheel drives wondered how I ever got it here.

As my business working, 12 hours a day, 6 days a week succeeded I was able to afford RV Resorts and "some" of them I like, not so much the facilities, but they bought real estate in the areas I enjoy staying.

Some people enjoy big cities, I can't stand them and will drive 150 miles out of my way to avoid one. To each there own, and RV'ing is the same way. I am glad everyone does not want to stay where I do or I would sell the MH just like I sold the boats when boating got to crowded for the area I live in.

We travel 4 months a year during hurricane season and travel the entire country. I find the places I would like to stay that are cheap you need reservations a year in advance. Not my idea of "getting away". Welcome to Naples where even the Walmarts do not have "free" places to stay. As for the "snarkiness" they probably had to shovel a lot of snow this winter and are still a little upset.

It's the nature of the beast on forums in general, and unfortunately this one is not much different in that regard. There are all kinds of reasons to choose the RV lifestyle, and all kinds of places to take it. As new owners at NMR ourselves, we're really looking forward to having a comfortable, friendly place where we can live outside for the winter and then travel for 6 or 7 months every year.

Nice to find you on here and look forward to seeing you next fall.

I've been to all different kinds of RV "Parks"; cornfields, casinos, mud holes, dust bowls, sand traps, flood plains (flooded) tree scrapers, 12' wide, extremely out of level, and many other "interesting" places to set up. So if someone wants to choose an upscale facility with nice pads, good hookups and facilities, that was designed for a modern motorhome and can afford it, I say good for them. If someone else wants something different, that's their personal choice and I for one would not take issue with that.
