But it's not as bad as it may sound to young folks. We did quite a bit of primitive camping when we were younger. Like our hookups now-a-days. State parks with W/E and the little "mom-n-pop" CG's we find out on the back roads are sometimes the best.
I guess we've just gotten soft in our old age.
I'm with you as always reserve/stay in campgrounds with full hookups.
However, I wouldn't remove the fresh water tank as always travel with about 1/2 tank of fresh water for those 'bathroom breaks' while on the road, occasional hand washing plus option to clean up if ever have a flat tire or other such situation. In the mid-west, it's not unusual for there to be 100 miles between 'facilities.'
Since 2012, twice unplanned delays caused us to stay in a WalMart parking lot overnight and nine times, elected to stay in a campground w/o hookups due to financial/site availability issues. Therefore, having fresh water available provides a much more pleasant outcome.
