Just spoke with a friend and she heard that there were hotels on the way to Florida that had slabs for camping. The slabs are located behind the hotel and they have full hook ups and the rate is something like $45 a day. Anyone know the name of such hotel chain?

I'm not familiar with the motels of which you speak. However, you should be able to find open campgrounds when traveling in season. The US Campgrounds website is a good source for parks that are much cheaper than $45/nite. Travel safe.

I have stayed at two such places none of which are on the way to FL.

One is in Childress, TX and the other is west of Memphis on I-40.

So yes there are such places in the US.

We use www.woodalls.com to locate campgrounds. Then we check www.rvparkreviews.com where the city the campground is located. There are many campgrounds off I-75, fewer on I-10. If you could give us your expected route, we can assist more. You can definitely find RV parks cheaper than $45 per night in off season. If you are also renting a room at a motel for family members who travel with you, sometimes they will allow you to park your RV in their parking lot if they have room. Look for motels that say semi truck parking. No hookups but convenient.

On our trip from PA to Disney in 2008 We stopped at a Ramada Inn in Florence SC right off I95. We discovered after check-in that there was a Campground called Swamp Fox campground directly behind the Ramada. Since we hit a lot of traffic on the way down, took us over 12 hours just to get there, we decided not to unhook and set up. Figured in the morning we could just eat and leave. On the return trip we stopped at a KOA. If I were to travel this route again, I would stop at South of the Border and Camp there.

I plan our stops as I know how far Im going to go in a day. I dont unhitch we stop and eat on the way in, then stop for the night or cook something up when we are in CG. We do travel with a woodalls and have changed CG's along the way if we are crusin. I like to get off the highway a little bit and have been successful thus far and have yet to stay in a hotel as I have my own personal hotel room attached to the TV.

Some motels in Newfoundland and Labrador had RV hookups and a room with showers set aside for campers use. I haven't seen this in the US. lizzie

At $45/night I'm not sure what the point is? Outside of a few of the resorts, thats a pretty nice campground
