We "Full Timed" in ours next to our house for two months after a pipe broke and flooded the house. All the flooring, cabinets, etc had to be replaced and that took a while.

We decided camping next to the house was a little boring after a while.

Don't ever do that but lived in it for 18 months inside of a garage. We were helping my son save his down payment to purchase his first home. He bought a home and we moved back home !

We try to camp at home at least one or two 'date nights' there a month, just to feel like we are getting our money's worth, even if we can't go out on the road. But spring is here, so looking forward to lotsa time in our 'rolling cabin.' Man, it's so nice to take it somewhere and forego the hotel, with kids running up and down the halls at all hours and noisy upstairs neighbors. I'm certainly 'hooked'. Loving the RV thing. Loving the Gateway ! Our Gateway to lotsa fun ! I think, I've had more fun decorating this and putting our touches on it and it's fun to 'date night' in. Sometimes, we cheat and fix a Michealinas meal and salad, cheap and easy and easy clean up. Goodwill and Wali both have cheap movies for Movie Night !

Used to camp at home quite often when the kids were little... Now, not so much.

If I lived somewhere where I couldn't keep my MH at home I'd be moving!!! Whenever the grandkids are over that's where we stay. Love the way they enjoy the thing more than I do. Nothing like an evening of SpongeBob and Powerangers with the little ones...

The mh stores on the rear of our property. It's ham radio equipped, so I use it for my hobby. DW uses it as a quiet place to work when she brings work home.

We do on occasion. My friends have asked if they can camp here when we go elsewhere to get away. We can have a fire on the deck and watch tv with a cold one, the perfect storage spot.

This is me as well.
With the RV in driveway plus we live in the country, home camping is a better sleep than on the road.
I even 'camp out' at home whenever the weather is too nice to stay inside or I just need a good night's sleep - to be perfectly clear I am not saying that the DW may snore occasionally

Not often

We just don'e have a very nice back yard to do that in. I mean there are time the sun is too bright, or the pool temp a tad too warm and then there are always those darn clouds that pass over. But we do try to make the best of it out in the back yard.

Man I do envy you people who can store you MH at your house! Mine is currently stored 35 mile away so I can keep it under cover, so that cuts down on my ability to both camp in it but mainly to putz around it doing those little things that I like to do ( my wife call the Eagle the biggest play toy I have ever had).

We just put our house on the market but we have been actually looking for a place to purchase where I could park the MH, but this search has been incredibly frustrating. Subdivisions with large enough lots either allow no RV's, or full of trees that cannot be cut down due to ordinances or just flat in areas that we would not live.

So anybody in the Lakeland, Plant City Florida area with any hints send me a pm I am getting desperate!
