I've been seeing/noticing a few campers on the road lately.and it seems like more then normal.im thinking that their on actual camping trips.maybe some folks are actually getting out of town.while the getting is good. i saw one truck n camper yesterday in which the camper wasn't doing right.when it comes to it being pulled.i figure it wasn't loaded right.or over loaded.

I'm not 'out and about' nearly as much as before COVID-19 so I can't comment on this in my area.
I will say that, if I had a camper, I'd probably be on the road, heading away from town...

I have not seen this myself, but that doesn't mean it's not happening here. The law has come down pretty hard on people being out and about, so if you were to go out and camp you would need to be way off the grid.

I hope people are not just going out for recreational camping, not now anyway.

It's a jungle out there...

This time of year is normally when the Snow Birds head north from Texas. They overwinter in S. Texas to escape the North cold and oversummer in the North to escape the Texas Heat.

So seeing an increase in campers may be a normal thing.

Keep any eye on those parked campers. If you can see them then they can see you...

Swimming pools? Do you mean permanent, in-ground or temporary, above ground types?
I'm curious why this might be happening. Water storage?

What's happening is people want to play, but they can't go out and do it so they are staying home and finding things to do. I get it.

I can see the need for entertainment. Wish I had that kind of spare cash...
