Our first “big” trip in the new motorhome was about five miles down the road to the Oasis RV Park in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is near the Silverton and Sun Coast Casinos. We were charged a “locals” rate of $42.00 for an upgraded site. We were lucky enough to get to park in-between two of our friends who are experts at RVing. The park is very nice with wide spaces, a doggie area, swimming pool, Wi-Fi,(charged &6.00 for this) small restaurant, fitness area, and lots of palm trees. The people working at the park were very accommodating and friendly.
Friends from the Corvette club joined us for Happy Hour and dinner and we had a great time with only several small disasters. (I couldn’t get how the microwave worked as a convection oven, but finally figured it out) But, the company and the food was wonderful. The weather was perfect and we had a great time laughing and telling lies until the wee hours of 9 PM. What ever happened to staying out until 2 in the morning? I guess time flies by.
We loved out queen sized bed. Not too small after being used to a king size. We tried out the electric fireplace, and it was wonderful! Our two professional RVer friends were a great help and taught my husband how to empty the tanks. The park allows a RV wash company to come through so we got the “rig” washed for $2.00 a foot. We weren’t sure if that was a bargain or not. Husband thought he could wash it easily too.
All in all it was a success, and we did not think we needed to take the RV back where it came from. We will see how the next venture out into the wild turns out.
Oh, we LOVED the Oasis in Vegas! It was our first RV site with palm trees on our year-long (plus) trip, and one of the few RV campgrounds where the pool is open until 11 pm. Beautiful!
