The Armstrong's Snowbird RV Trails
Meet The Armstrong's

Since 2009 we have ventured up and down the East Coast from New
England to the Gulf Coast and from the Atlantic Coast to the Mississippi.
We RV North for the Summertime and then back South for the Winters.

We've enjoyed four different RV's - including a motorhome and three Fifth
Wheels - in 2018 we downsized to a brand new Class B Roadtrek
(and don't think that hasn't been a trip with 3 feline co-pilots!)

Our other most requested route is our
Favorite "Loop" through the New England States

BUT WAIT! (Where have we heard that before?)
After 40,000+ miles we have found some favorite routes
to share with you. You'll find mileages, campgrounds, special
restaurants, our reviews and fun places to visit in our Trip Logs on


For example we invite you to join us on a recent three week, 2,600 mile
circuitous loop that took us from Tampa, Florida through Georgia, Tennessee,
Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Mississippi, Alabama and back to Tampa.
We had ten stopovers, some great dining and many new discoveries.

We make planning the next trip as easy and as much fun as the
trip itself. See some tips and how we do it step-by-step on our

What is it all about and would it be right for me?

Niki and I started what some call Work Kamping after retirement and enjoyed
it for 5 years. "Why?" you might ask.
There are several good reasons.

1. Your site is FREE for the Season which saves $2,000 to $3,000+/Season!

2. Hook-ups are usually free - electric,
sewer, water & discounted propane!

3. You meet the other campers throughout
the Season. Most become friends.

4. You participate in all the festivities throughout the Season.

We'll give you some of our tips, places to
look for openings and we have an active
"Bulletin Board" where we post current
openings as they are sent to us.

on our page HERE.
