I live in Pittsburgh and work in Philadelphia three days a week. Tired of hotels and thinking of buying a small travel trailer to leave in place for several years. Hoping to find an inexpensive, clean, quiet and safe place to call home when in Philadelphia. Any thoughts?

Ed, you might try Timberlane CG in Clarksville, NJ at exit 16 on I-295. They are about 45 mins from center city and have several "semi permanents" they are open year round with insulated faucets, etc. Good luck and I would be trying the very same approach as long distance commutes in hotels gets to be trying very fast, Ken....

Thanks Ken, I called them this morning and was told that New Jersey state law doesn't allow full time residents at RV parks. I failed to tell her that it would only be for aprox three days a week so maybe that would make a difference. Perhaps I will call her back to clairify.

Ed, I too know what the NJ law says. We have stayed there a zillion times and believe me that have "semi-perms" there forever and a day. Stop by there after the 1st of Oct. and notice the number of rigs that have wrapped hoses, installed insulation sheeting all around the lower perimeter, and have brought in the humungous propane tanks---they ain't there just for the weekend. It could be that somebody dropped a dime on them so they are not accepting the "semi-perms" anymore. Unfortunately, Philly is not a whole lot different from the left side of PA, where come early Oct. campgrounds shut down for the winter. Now, if you come down to where we live in eastern TN there is no winter shutdown of campgrounds or golf courses! Ken....
