I don't know of any that would allow overnights , but you can drive and park on Daytona and New Symrna beach for a good part of the day. I've not seen any MH of any size there though.

X2 for Salt Away . Amazing stuff!

Yeah I don't think they have overnights. I have never heard of salt away until a couple days ago on this thread. We could use that up here every darned winter!

Between those excursions on the beach and a short 50 mile drive in Iowa in the wintertime my MH started showing an immense amount of rust within a few months. I did wash it every time I walked into the fires of salt.

I guess Class C Itasca's (and the Ford chassis they're built on) are just built better, with superior finishes than Holiday Ramblers are then.

The original owner of my unit lived on a waterfront lot and the unit was parked within 100' of the Gulf of Mexico and he was an avid surf fisherman. My rig spent many hundreds of days, both before and after I purchased it, on and next to both Gulf and Atlantic beaches.

There's still no visible rust after 20 years.

It was "built Ford tough" I guess. LOL.

Rofl! I would not dream of taking this big behemoth on the beach. We had a Ford E3500 Class B+ when we drove on the beach. The metal on it is the same as the metal on all vehicles as far as I know. 😚 This Scepter would go down like rock in that sand. And rust the same. I am interested in that salt away stuff. Never heard of it. Anyone that wants to park next to salt water makes no difference to me and is no concern of mine.


Thanks,

Alan
