Thanks, Patty
No need to make reservations. In 16 years of full-timing we only did it if we really had to be somewhere.... like visiting family or weddings. If we would have had to reserve 5,840 nights we would have never full-timed. Some aren't comfortable with this way but it found it very easy to do - even for our 40' motorhome. However, we like nature so we used public parks or boondocked on public lands. If you need to be in a 'resort' or near a popular vacation spot like Disney or have a limited 2-week vacation then, yes, you'll have to reserve.
