If it were me I would prefer concrete but a good bed of rock or gravel will work.

In all the places we have been we have always been on packed gravel.

If you are going to be living in the RV, I would recommended cement, and big enough to sit on when you are outside under the awning. If you are just thinking of a place to park the RV when not in use, I guess it doesn't make much difference.

I noticed that several trucking yards / semi / semi trailer parking lots using crushed asphalt that is then packed with a roller . It seems to make a pretty hard surface that's low cost.

I like cement nice for washing and waxing the 5thwheel also using the stepladder on solid ground.

I have an asphalt drive way. I took a 3/8" pressure treated 4X8 sheet of plywood and made pads to park the trailer on. Cut the plywood in the lengths and width I needed. Cut enough pieces so I could double them up to give a total thickness of 3/4". Keeps the tires from "denting" in the asphalt where the tires sit and I think it is better for the tires.
