I will be going into full time RV mode this summer. My business is all over the United States and I am typically in one area for 3 months so I am interested in putting together a list of places that have full hookups at decent prices for extended stays. If you are aware of any please let me know.

That would be case by case based on WHERE you will be.

Me listing a place in Dixon MO would be meaningless if you won't be doing business in Dixon


Time for some research
Go to 'campgroundreviews' (old RVParkReviews) and check out the reviews of various CGs in areas you will be working
Many CGs have monthly fee schedules

I know it can be time consuming....but you would know better what works for you
Old RV Park Reviews....Campground Reviews


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Almost any commercial campground will have full hook ups and offer weekly and monthly rates. Away from destination areas, you will have little problem finding a space. However, in popular vacation areas and snow bird destinations during season, you may have to improvise such as accepting partial hook ups until a full hook up site opens, or stay at a less convenient campground.

You will find difficulty finding open campgrounds, especially with water available, in the northern part of the country during winter.

There are available campground directories and apps to help you find campgrounds.

What color truck should I buy?

Full hookup can range from campgrounds with trees in the middle of nowhere to full on activity laden campgrounds near urban areas

Staying for 3 months is easy as long as there is not something else going on. We were in Central CA initially for a few days. This turned into weeks and that turned into months. The CG folks were awesome.....right up until the State Fair (or similar) was coming up. They threw us out without ceremony but hoped we had a great day!


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

3 months at a reasonable price over the summer?

The RV park at the casino I worked at and lived for a year has reasonable rates, including monthly rates. It's a nice park with plenty of room in the Summer.

Unfortunately it gets hot there in the Summer. Not too bad yet. Was 102F today. It will warm up in July though.

Full hookups meaning water, sewer, and electricty. Decent rates say anything under $1500 a month, and of course cheaper is better. I am not really concerned if the park has say a swimming pool or clubhouse. In terms of locations I have allot of flexability so I can go pretty much anywhere that I can get internet service. I have sales reps throughout North America and I basically make camp in an area and meet with the reps as they pass thru. For example I am currently in North Florida so the reps come from the surrounding states as they have time. I would essentially like to get a set list of spots of around 12 locations staged around the country geographically and move one to the other about every 3 months.

Getting a 3-month stay this summer may be a problem.

Take a look at the Escapees RV Club. The club owns 7 parks in various states with monthly member rates of about $350 plus electric. There are also 11 member owned co-op parks with similar rates.
