        Eric and Kathy You're welcome. Merry Christmas to y'all too. Try Hooked on Harry's while in St. Augustine. I like the jambalia (with rice), and if the weather is good it's fun to eat in the courtyard.

        Okietravellers I like the Inglis area. The large rejuvenated campground on the north side of the barge canal looks attractive to me. The Crossings in Williston probably wouldn’t let me in with the number of animals we have (from my memory of their website’s park rules...  more

      TheClearyClan I recommend renting different trailers or motorhomes for a few weekends to see what you like and what you can handle. It is cheaper than buying something you hate and selling for a big loss. We did the rentals before buying.

      Carol Miller I'm new too. Thought I wanted a class B, but went to an RV show in Daytona this past weekend. I looked at new and used class B. Tried to get into the driver's seat from the back and bashed my head. Definitely check some out up close and personal.
