Default Tt 2019 or 2020?

I am planning on going to the TT in 2019 or 2020 with 2 other lads. One lad & myself on bikes, the other in a car. 4 days, possibly including senior day but not set in stone. What i am looking for is some info on the best campsites, places to watch etc etc. Now i've been researching campsites but i'm looking for first hand knowledge. Chopper off here told me about Glenlough Campsite (i think)
http://glenloughcampsite.com/
& it was a good spot. Has anyone ever used this site
https://homestay.miquando.com/
We'd like to be able to get to Douglas handy enough
aswell for going on the beer.
If someone could post a link to a page off here with info i'd appreciate that.
I know it's very early to be thinking about this but i know these things get booked very quickly ferry wise et etc.
Thanks.

glenlough campsite, put up your tent, sit on the hedge and watch them go by heading for ballagarey, bus run to douglas, the pizza crowd delivers and the railway bar is just down the hill. camping is great in weather like this year, last year was a living hell. go homestay if u can.

for watching, we were at hilbery this year for the senior it was mental, bikes coming flat down from the creg and swinging across the bend, sometimes on the grass. I'll be honest I remember when I was sat on the hedge at the campsite for my first experience of a superbike passing up close and personal and it scared the shit out of me lol, its fantastic. some lads went to sarahs cottage this year too and said it was great, and well provided for with a jacks and grub, theres a guy on youtube called unrestricted isle, hes a local and does reviews of places.

By most accounts Glenlough seems to be a good one.

General consensus, weather could fuck it up.
