Glad to be apart of this forum, as a first timer I will need alot of help along the way as I'm on limited income and not very mechanically inclined I will have to do most of the work myself .

Thanks in advance Marty

Welcome! Enjoy the ride!

Are you retired? Are you 62+?

You indicated that you are on a limited income, and new to RVing, so I thought that I'd let you know about the senior pass for National Parks... You can get one at many of the National Parks, or order it on-line. Go to http://www.nps.gov/findapark/passes.htm to learn more, but it provides you a 50% discount on camping, etc.

I think the correct answer is "YES". To confirm, go to a Ranger Station at any National Park or to a Corps of Engineers Headquarters and ask.

I believe the senior pass is solely based on citizenship and age. But also check into the Access Pass, which I believe provides about the same benefits, but it appears to not have the age dependencies, just being disabled. By the way, you don't need to visit one of the RV parks, I got mine at a local memorial park for a historic site. Check out the locations in your area on the spreadsheet in the link I provided. Again, go to http://www.nps.gov/findapark/passes.htm to learn more.

For a one time charge of $10, you will save that cost in one night's stay. I stay at very nice USACOE parks for from $6 to $15 per night all over the country. Check out a few I like to stay at in GA; BOLDING MILL, GA, EASTBANK, GA, MCKINNEY CAMPGROUND, GA, etc, etc...

=============
Senior Pass

$10 Lifetime pass
For U.S. citizens or permanent residents age 62 or over.
May be obtained in person at a federal recreation site or through the mail using this application form. The cost of obtaining a Senior Pass through the mail or online is twenty dollars ($20). Ten ($10) for the Senior Pass and ten ($10) for processing the application. Applicants must provide documentation of age and residency or citizenship.
May provide a 50 percent discount on some amenity fees charged for facilities and services such as camping, swimming, boat launch, and specialized interpretive services.
Generally does NOT cover or reduce special recreation permit fees or fees charged by concessioners.
Note: Golden Age Passports are no longer sold. However, these passes will continue to be honored according to the provisions of the pass.

==========
Access Pass

Free
For U.S. citizens or permanent residents with permanent disabilities.
May be obtained in person at a federal recreation site or through the mail using this application form. The cost of obtaining an Access Pass through the mail is ten dollars ($10) for processing the application (the Pass is free). Applicants must provide documentation of permanent disability and residency or citizenship.
