We are still running wide open. Most campgrounds we have been in have been mostly full. Sure we wish diesel prices were less but we are still moving.

Seems about the same overall to me. Hard to tell if people are staying a little closer to home.

IMHO, we're not seeing as many RVs on the road for two reasons. First the price of fuel. Second, many of the RVs purchased in the past two years were sold to newbies.

We've been on the road for more than two months. Started in May pre-summer vacation. Usually, parks had limited availability. But that had to do with the high number of permanent residents. I'm making that assumption since normally you don't see huge 50+ gallon propane tanks sitting next to the RV. Actually that has been the case in every park we've stayed at. More and more permanent residents.

Public parks generally were almost always full Friday and Saturday and other than for one-off spots when we were lucky, it was one night and go. Other than that, based on the luck of the draw, we'd get another night or two because of cancellations. This has been true since we started early May. Since summer vacation began we don't even look for a spot at a public Campground. At least not those with ANY kind of attraction.

From the looks of the many brand new travel trailers and based on their typical starter type maneuvers, brand new campers, with in-State license plates, I'd say one of the reasons we're not seeing many RVs on the road is because they're not traveling far to spend the weekend. This is partly due to their age. Most are younger RVers with children. So most likely they're back home on Sunday evening and back to work Monday. If true, fuel and cost of camping is only a minimal concern.

For us older long timers, it's a different ball game. Takes a bit of planning compared to the carefree style of two years ago.

I totally concur with the above comment about boon-docking. I hope these newbie RVers don't discover that for a few more years.

When home we do a lot of camping Sunday through Friday AM. So we are on the road during the time that most weekender are headed home on Sunday.

We are seeing a lot less on the road. Are they leaving their camper longterm? At the state parks and coe we are not seeing it. Right now on a Monday morning are seeing the norm of vacant camp sites expect. Since there are 14 day limits at most public CG's. They could be seting up longterm at private CG's?
