Cons

Hideous Internet connections. Speedtest.net showed 0.23 mbs download and 0.03 mbs upload. Stronger Wi-Fi signal available at office that gets 1.33 mbs download and 0.28 upload.
Sites are very close together — approximately 18 inches between slideout and neighbor’s patio or awning.
Grass sites have wheel ruts that make leveling difficult, but not impossible.
Washers operate for 30 minutes, while dryers operate for 60, which creates a backup upon occasion.
No fenced dog park.
