Just a little info on our costs


We are coming up on our one year FT anniversary, since we have paid till then, I calculated our average nightly cost for a site.

Personally all of the other costs of life are so variable, and others post down to the dollar budgets. But this seems to be of interest to most, since it's the biggest expense one can have some control over.

for us it was $34

For a bit more, the most we paid was $90, at a KOA in Billings MT, but that was off set by an equal number of nights we stayed at friends or family for $0

My favorite "bargain" place was Scenic View in South Sioux City NE, only $18,  for 50 amps and cable.

Another was in Ellis KS, $20 for a river view  50 amps and water.

Our average for the past 12 months was $23.72/night. We don't boondock/moochdock/Waldock or do the BLM thing. We do, however, use a lot of military campgrounds, RV parks and resorts. We also had a couple of months of monthly rates this past 12 months due to illness.

For the past few years we have been averaging around $15/night. We extensively use membership parks, PPA while going between destinations, and a couple of driveway stays of a week or two each year, to keep our costs down. And yes, that does include our membership dues each year.

$27.93 for 2017 ... 2018 is a work in progress.  We will soon be in one of our membership spots (Rushmore Shadows) and 14 days free ... that will help.

This winter we paid $1700/month, electricity included, in Fort Myers so our costs so far are $35.01 a night. This includes campground membership fees. In 2017 our cost was $26.25/night.

Our 5 year average is $20.83/night, year to date this year we're at $21.10. We only dry camp about 15% of the time including spending at least 4-8 weeks in Quartzsite each winter. We generally have 3 different months each year where we stop for a month at a time and pay the monthly rate vs. a weekly or daily rate so that really helps to keep the average down.

After 2123 nights (going on 6 years) our average nightly is $25.42. But it has steadily gone up each year. ^ years ago we set out with a goal of staying at or under $25 average per night. We see that slowly slipping away.

To my mind it's all relative. As long as your income is keeping up... all is well.
