Stepford Camping

Pulled into an RV park found on the internet for a quick overnight between destinations. It was a bit pricey but not many options in the area, Breckenridge CO. Arrived at our site in our nice but old class C and were received poorly to say the least by the residents. Turned out the "campground" was a high end resort for high end motor homes (counted 20 new Prevost motor coaches in our small section of the park) towing new Jeeps which seemed the toad of choice. The minimal issue was had to pull the picnic table up close to our RV to keep the older kids from bike racing past our front door.
Now I understand that if you spend $1,000,000 + for an RV you expect a certain environment - but please let me know that I am not an acceptable part of the environment instead of unacceptable, petty and rude behavior (not all issues have been indicated). Could have left, but didn't want to give the residents the satisfaction.
The Stepford in the title refers to the old movie which this park reminded me of. So, how many have been in Stepford and how many approve of Stepford?

Always hate to hear about this kind of thing. I truly do not know how I would react to this, as I have not had it happen to me (yet?). But you are not the first or most likley the last member

We have been in a couple parks when had our fiver(it was fairly new) and had someone in a real high end coach come in and park amongst us lower end RVers. Only one guy with a older Prevost thought his didn't stink. After a few rude remarks from him everyone around ignored him. He left the next day. It is a sad state of affairs when what you drive supposedly makes you a better person.

Sorry if you were made to feel uncomfortable, but, fact of life, there will always be those who look down on others. If you pulled into that park with "basic" outfitted Prevost, those who have an "upper" level Prevost will look down on you. Got one of my better laughs when a high end owner came over to my then "lowly" class C Coachman at a park here in Vegas and ask me how to get his refrigerator started. Oh, BTW, I did help him get it going and let with a quite smile.
