Check out 7B3 Hampton airfield. Very quaint, food on field, and right in town.

I know itís thread drift, but Iíve found courtesy cars at small, single-runway airports in TX, OK, KY, TN, OH, LA, WI, MS, ...

I try to add that data to the Comments section (or sometimes FBO Comments) in ForeFlight. Sometimes they are ragged, old police cars, and sometime pretty nice. Occasionally they are parked out back, and the key is hanging on the wall with a clipboard, and the CTAF opens the FBO door, 24/7.

My 2018 Osh trip was over 3 weeks with many nights in FBO recliners or sofas. With a car, fridge, uwave, and a recliner chair Iím set to wait out weather, an hour or day(s).

After Osh19 I flew to Green Bay. I called ahead and FBO said free courtesy car and waive $40 landing/handling fee with ANY fuel purchase. Flew over with full tanks, bought 3.2 gallons, and got the car to chase breakfast and no extra fee!

".....and waive $40 landing/handling fee with ANY fuel purchase."

Yes I find that those fees go away when you buy fuel. Not always "any" amount of fuel in my experience, but not an unreasonable amount.

Answering my own question here: landed GBR this morning after an easy 0.6 hour flight from Bridgeport, CT. Fairly steep approach on runway 11 but nothing the RV with a CS prop couldn't make easy work of. Back taxied on the runway and parked on the grass (decent surface). Nice friendly place with a surprisingly large amount of G.A. activity. We enjoyed sitting in Adirondack chairs for a bit watching operations. $15/night tiedown fee.

"Joe" from the FBO gave us a lift to town (2 mi.) and we're set up in the Days Inn within walking distance to everything in the downtown area. Highly recommended.
