On the way back from Northern WI to Southern WI (Superior to Madison) we took notice of what type of campers were on the road. Didn't record any numbers but the TTers (5th wheel & Pull) far exceeded the number of motor homes. Only a couple of class C MH's rest were class A's. Seems a couple of years ago everyone was going the MH route. Has that trend shifted to TT's?

Anyone else notice this trend?

We noticed it too

Memorial Day weekend at western Washington's Belfair State Park ...FULL HOUSE!

Unless on an extended trip out of our area, we will stay always stay in this highly desired park. Out of 182 campsites (more than half being tent sites), it was quite noticeable this past holiday weekend of the increase of TTs, fivers and especially pop-ups and so few MHs, no more than 15. Is it because of our current fuel situation?

Kind of un-scientific analysis there....might be attributed to "so many" things....Having owned two fivers before going the MH route,I can attest to the fact that many fiver haulers don't get "any better" fuel mileage than some of the MH's though...

What I've seen,at least of late is there still seem to be people out there camping and THAT'S a good thing!!

Having attended a number of RV show each year in our area, the trend I have noticed is more families with kids. TT's tend to more family friendly both layout wise and economic wise. Meaning they have a more kid friendly latout with more sleeping accomodations, and tend to be less expensive. Justt my observations!

I was going to guess that MH's are driven mostly by fulltimers. They are too smart to travel on a holiday with the rest of us inexperienced weekend warriors on the road.
