I completely agree with this. I know many people that own massive RVs but won't take them further than 3 hours. They also have difficulty finding sites in a lot of campgrounds due to the limited...

The tiny campers use a Rhino truck spray on liner for their outer coating. Seems like a really good idea for its strength, durability, and low-cost. I'm guessing they spray it directly on the plywood.

Last summer I saw an official tent site in the Eldon Lake bay on the north shore on Raquette Lake.

None of the tent sites are shown in the Sargent Ponds WF, just the lean tos.
