It does say right on the site that an extra car is $5 per day. I suppose the interpretation of "car" would depend on the host though.

some hosts consider a vw bus an rv ... because you can sleep in it. throw an extra sedan with 3 tents and 5 people and you're cool ... a bus with two people and you're breaking the rules... depends on the host.

Indeed I understand. I've always felt a guilty pleasure in the lower cost of a tent campsite with the bus in the past. And I've dealt with finger wagging admonitions of "Vehicle parking on the blacktop only" mentalities of park "hosts" in the past. Eh, starting to panic on completion in the time frame anyway. Everytime I turn around, more cleaning and detail to finishing than I hope.

Two years ago my goal was to have my rebuild done in time to get to Nehalem. I didn't start the engine until 2 days before I left. You can do this!!!
