    We went to Anderson CA to have some warranty work done our camp trailer. Camping World was very willing to let us stay there for 2 nights. (We did spend $300.00 in the store). After the work was finished (about 6 hours) we stayed an a nice Campground in Cottonwood CA. My wife’s sister lives in the gated community that also has the RV park. Since we were related to one of the home owners in the community we had no trouble getting a space. (We were also there around Dec.10, 2016.) The RV park will take outsiders, but there has to be room and the fees are higher. There are both full hookups and ele/water only also. We stayed a few days so the snow could clear from I5 north and we got home between snow storms. Before we left home I did buy cable chains for the 1500 Ram and the camp trailer just in case. Those are things that I hope to never use, but SAFETY is FIRST.

      Most Camping Worlds are pretty good about letting you park overnight!

      And yes, safety first! It’s good to always secure your property no matter where you are spending the night.

      Thanks for commenting Wayne.

        That too, but I was talking about the cable chains that for the tires in case I got caught in a snow storm. Packed snow and towing a trailer can get interesting if you are not prepared. I got caught in a late snow storm on Highway 58 it was a long trip on the packed snow. That day ODOT was not requiring tire chains, but it could have happened and we would have had to park somewhere until the snow melted the next day.

          OK, gotcha. Yes, definitely must consider safety when driving in bad conditions. I prefer just to stay parked. As an Atlanta, Georgia native, well… we don’t do well with snow! We make the national news when it snows here, we are so bad at dealing with it.
