We have used our TD camping many times since building it 8 years ago. We have been at forest service campgrounds where facilities are very limited to regular state and national park campground with a few privately owned ones inbetween. 2 years ago we took a 5 week vacation to Wisconsin, Michigan and then to the ITG at Minden on the way home. We spent 2 nights in a motel on the trip. One was after a torrential rain in the Badlands of South Dakota where the trailer had a leak we didn't know about and had to dry things out. The other was after a really long day of driving and needed a larger room to relax in other than the TD. We have found that most campgrounds are pretty decent. Even when it rains, we have adjusted what we wear to compensate for it. Eating dinner in raingear while watching the water run down the campground road outside of Mt Rushmore made for a great story. "1100 miles from home dear, I don't think we can do much about this at the moment"
This summer we are planning another long trip to the east coast that will include stops at Minden, a lobster dinner in Maine, Vermont, Niagara Falls, Wisconsin and any other cheesy tourist trap we can find in between. The Spam Museum was fun last trip. There probably will be a few nights in a motel, but most will be in a campground, meeting new people from around the country. That is the fun about using the teardrop, it is a great icebreaker in a campground and the stories you will hear from what others remember are interesting. You just can't get that in a motel.
Enjoy your travels,
