      Update from Texas Assn of Campground Owners re: Evacuees   08/28/17

      Good morning, There are now at least 18 privately owned and operated campgrounds and RV parks across Texas that are accepting evacuees. The attached news release, updated from the one the association issued yesterday, includes the names and contact info for the parks. Consumers can also do their own research to identify parks with RV spaces and rental cabins at www.TexasCampgrounds.com and www.TexasCabinRentals.net. Please contact Brian Schaeffer, executive director and CEO of the Texas Association of Campground Owners, on his cell phone at (817) 307-0129 for any questions. We will continue to update this release over the weekend based on the feedback we receive from campgrounds and RV parks across Texas. Many thanks for including our information in your reports yesterday. We appreciate it. Sincerely, Jeff Crider

42' Coaches...Limitations At Campgrounds/destinations?

Recommended Posts

Getting closer to pulling the trigger on a larger coach (34' now) and we are looking hard at 42-43 footers with tag axles for 6-7 months/yr full-timing.

Does anyone who has this length coach have some wisdom about what limitations the extra 2-3' and tag axle cause? I am guessing that the obvious "can't fit in smaller spaces" comes up normally, but are there situations that you have encountered that really made you wish that you had stayed with a standard 40' length?

Have you been thwarted in any way that you never considered when you opted for the extra size?

Are there restrictions that you have run into that caused you grief when you got to a park?

There are some parks that you will not fit in. I have a 45 foot coach and really appreciate the extra space. Get a copy of Big Rigs Best Bets, 13th edition. This guide is choke full of parks that do accommodate larger rigs and is constantly being updated. It is available in Print and digital editions. It is a fantastic resource.
