RV Destinations

Updated on October 4, 2011

From classics to customs and hot rods to roadsters; the Mississippi Coast is swamped with them. The area is host to Cruisin’ the Coast which began in ’96 with a few hundred entrants. Last year there were nearly 5000 entrants and over 700 volunteers. And they come from all over the U.S. and as far away as Canada.

Almost every available field and parking area is enhanced with colorful, shiny classics and replicas dating back a minimum of twenty-five years. Forty-nine Mercs, ’78 Vettes, ’70 Chevelles, ’66 GTOs and ’55 Chevy Nomads are but a few rumbling along Highway 90.

Additionally, there is an influx of RVs to the area. RV Parks are at record capacity. Class As towing enclosed trailers are parked behind hotrods lining the roadways. With temperatures staying in the low eighties, most of these temporary campsites find the hotrod enthusiasts mingling around and visiting one another’s RV enjoying drinks or cookouts under their extended awnings. There no longer is a need to run A/C constantly making their dry camping endeavors much more pleasurable.

Many of these folks follow car shows around the country showing off their pride and joy. An RV is the perfect accompaniment to their hobby. Area RV parks charge an average of $25 per night which may include water, sewer, trash, cable, Wi-Fi, pot luck meals and more whereas hotels are much, much higher without the camaraderie.

Want to see the largest ball of yarn? Care to visit alligator farms? Perhaps you are an avid sailplane pilot looking for the perfect ridge lift. Love the mountains? Crave the coast? Tread lightly along the Rubicon in your Jeep? Whatever you want to do…RVing is a great complement to your travels.

As a full time RVer, I chase the weather…not a storm chaser, but loathing the cold snow and wind of winter, I travel around the south enjoying the warmth of the sun. Every RVer has that opportunity. Simply decide what and where you wish to be, point the RV in that direction and drive!

      We have been in Biloxi during Cruisin' The Coast and have just loved it. You DO know, I hope, that you can stay at Gulf Islands National Seashore for $16 a night...$8 if you're a senior and have a park pass. It's a lovely spot and less than 5 miles from Biloxi. Loved the article!
