Many times in many driveways, including my own. And, like a few others, I have on occasion been "invited" to stay out there in the driveway. Comfy!

I think DH would give his left arm to be able to park ours in the driveway, but ours is not big enough, plus we live in a historical zoning area. So, we have to place it in storage and pay to use it every time.

I would love to have it in the driveway to use as a "doghouse", as well.

Yep, in my own driveway while I was working on the house and in other folks driveway while traveling. We know a couple in Upper Lake, California that said ''Come on by, we got a camp spot with Water Sewer and 50 amp electric. We did and stayed for 2 weeks at their inst-incense. Wonderful people and a real thrill to know them. Most camping like that is 15 amp electric and water, no sewer but we got big tanks and thats ok.

When we visit my wife's home town, we always stay in her dad's front yard. He has water, sewer, and 30A service which is not a problem in ND as we only need one AC, if that.

Haven't done that in my current rig. But in my prior ones, both class C's, maybe a couple times a month.

NO reason to feel the least uncomfortable or embarrassed about enjoying spending time out in the RV - even the older '88 Winnie we own, is like a castle, compared to "homes" we lived in in past years as we were growing up - in fact, most any of the later and more well-equipped RV and MH's would have EASILY been the nicest "home" in some of those early day towns and neighborhoods!

Besides - the same neighbors who snicker at any of us spending time out in our RV's, probably are not very outdoors or camping oriented - and ALSO think activities like golf, fishing. and long-distance travels, are equally strange!

We bought our RV's for US and our enjoyment - and not for the neighbors, or for their approval...

We don't have AC in the house so if it's really steamy (not too often in VT) we sleep out there.

We "redneck" camp all the time............been doing it for over 20 years. When we were broke we used to tell the kids that we were going camping, and went to the driveway. We used to spend the weekend in the cabover.......they were given a stern warning not to bother us! lol.

Love, camping in the rig as its parked under the pole barn. Especially like to use it when all the kids show up with their clans and the big house gets a little too crowded. The fridge is on, the slides are out and the brew is cold! Now, the DW would rather stay in the house with the masses, but me and the pooch love to go camping. In fact, I always keep a couple of comfortable chairs set up behind the rig facing the woods, just for those special moments.

RV's are too nice to be considered "dog house". Maybe they should be "Husband Retreats". Seriously, camping in the yard or driveway is a great way to check things out and is also fun. Grand kids love it and when we travel to visit kids, we stay in their driveway and just plug in to their electric. John H...

We spend more time in friends and relatives driveways than campgrounds. One of the main reasons we got the MH is to bring our house with us so when we get tired of visiting for the day we can walk home for a break.

Just camped in the driveway last night!

We are having two bathrooms remodeled so have not been in the master bedroom with our GREAT SleepNumber bed since late March. The mattress in the guest bedroom is horrible and my back was starting to hurt.

Since we have a SleepNumber in the motorhome, I went and slept out there last night and my back feels much better. DW is currently cleaning the master bedroom now so I can move back home...
