Welcome to the forum, enjoy your stay. If you have any questions regarding RVs or camping trailers, please don't ask me as I am on almost the same situation you are. My wife and I also got tired of tenting so we just purchase a 35' Winnebago which we haven't taken possession as of yet, long story short we're waiting the 2012 instead of the 2011.

You said that the one you looked at has all the bells and whistles, even though you don't need any of it. I say, there a many things in life we don't really need but if we can have it we might as well enjoy it. As I told my wife, we only live once and for a very short period of time. So, while we still alive and healthy lets enjoy our lives the best way possible.

Where are you shopping for the Jayco ? ....on Long Island ?

We had to travel to Florida ( Lazydays R/V ) to find what we wanted. We need more RV dealers on the Island !!!!! :(

Enjoy............


Oh, no, the Cedar Point we go to is in East Hampton on the South fork. It's really nice-they have a bay beach or you can go to the East Hampton town beach which is nice, but a bit of a drive.

We gave up on Jayco, and picked up our Keystone Sprinter yesterday. We slept in it, and love it very much. Perfect for all our needs.

Nope! There's loads of HUGE class A's that camp there. I think it's the perfect camping place. The clean beach and calm waters really makes it nice. (And the catching dinner stuff is an added bonus!)

You are so right! We bought a used camper, but it is everything we wanted. I'm so happy with it, and I think at this point in my life-with the 4 kids, and the dogs, I'm not nervous about them breaking something that's new-this one has been through a family already, and looks great-but I am comfortable in it. LOL!!

Hey everyone.

My parents dream has always been to get a house on the water. Since that is only a possibility for a small percentage of us, they thought the next best thing was to hook a camper to their truck to sleep on the beach. We've taken our trucks on the beach through the years at Smiths Point and loved it.
We've been looking at trailers for the past few weeks and were going to split the cost among all of us.

Anyway, we went to a party yesterday and a lady there said that you can't camp on the beach itself anymore and if you wanted to go to Smiths Point then you had to go into the actual campground area and not on the beach.

Is this true? Is camping on the local beaches no longer allowed? This could very well prevent us from getting a camper if it's true.

Hi folks, and welcome to the forum! One caution, don't ever believe it when a salesman tells you that you can tow a camper he is trying to sell you! They will tell you anything to get the sale. Check it out for yourself. Good luck with the RV you decided on

You can camp on the outer beach, (In the sand) at Smiths Point, you have to call for reservations, and have a Suffolk County Beach permit for your TV. (About 75 dollars) The camp ground in on the other side of the Dunes. I like the Campgrounds, I have a site with hookups for this coming Sunday for the week. It's my last week of the summer since my sons start football and practice is important. (We'll be driving them in during the week for at least one practice as well...)
