We left our trailer at Duisenburg for 6 months. With the terrible weather we hadn't been able to go back during the winter as we had planned. We were very happy with the caretaker Peggy. She saw us come in to camp and when we parked at our trailer she was right there to check on who we were. I felt very reassured when we go back this fall that our trailer was in safe and capable hands.
