I'm a vet as well...

We've seen lots in our 4 years rving...

I stopped at one place last fall, travelling alone on business. I had the nicest rv in the campground. By a wide margin, ceopt for one, and they never went outside.

I cooked and ate outside, and walked around the whole place, talking to everyone i saw. Then sat in my comfy chair and talked to everyone who passed by, mostly walking thier dogs....

Another time, my, the dw, #1 & #3 sonss, and the dog went to a campground we'd never been b4. Dw declared there were wAy too many permanent TT's with porches. #1 son and i walked the park with the dog till late in the night, meeting fellow campers, sharing drinks, and talking late into the night...
I had a really good time. So did #1 son. DW was mad at me for a month and refuses to go back there....

Sometimes i just don't get it...

We have the PGA in town this week and our place has several Prevost units that are less than 6 months old. The owners are wonderful just working people on the road missing home. At least 2 made the cut today 4th and 12th so far last I looked.

Well back to the OP of Class A's being snobs.

We traveled 150 miles today, short day. I said, why not, so I waved at every RV'er we saw coming in our direction, and I mean every RV from Prevost to Pop-up. There were many on the road.

Guess what? The only one that every waved back was a Class A.

Funny huh? So who are the snobs?

Now on the other hand, folks are now "Type" cast! When I go to a campground all I see are RV'ers and it doesn't matter one bit if we are in a Class or a Type.

The only people that I might have noticed as being snobish are those that buy super expensive RVs as status symbols. Some of those folks also buy large yachts as well for much the same reason. By in large 99% of all RV'ers are just normal folks like everyone else and are out to have a good time. Most of the time, another RV'er will wave if they see you in time.

Please don't paint us shy folks as snobs. We have one of class A's that many here think host snobs. I tend to be shy, warming slowly to others and am prone to stay inside. However, one of my first roadie friends has a TT and an older pick up truck. I loved that she brought me a cup of coffee our first morning in the park to ease my way into unpacking. When I returned her cup she introduced me to a few others who introduced me to a few others... I was no longer stuck in my class A prison. My DH is very outgoing so that helps. Of course if someone doesn't return a wave, they have issues beyond being shy or a snob.

I know COE and state parks will be ok, but not sure about "normal" campgrounds. I know some will, likely some won't.

But beyond that its myself a married woman, but with hubby gone all the time, I travel alone with my mentally challenged daughter. Her disability is mild but she has Williams Syndrone so looks different. With these issues we are oddities right there, we don't fit in. Most people are married couples and they don't really want us, some neighbors at campgrounds are very nice but kind of stand offish too. It gets lonely and I wish we could just be welcomed and treated like anyone else. We are just wanting to have a good time also but its almost like some folks are afraid of us.

We have a good time together anyway, and I'm just to the point I know we will not be accepted and when we are appreciate it. We are nice folks, I don't want your husband, I'm not trying to cause issues anywhere, we just want to go and be part of the group. I thought about trying to join the single partners group but that seems a bit odd, so where do us square pegs go? I see a few couples traveling with an adult disabled "child" and notice the same thing about them. They too seem alone.

But DD and I have never met a stranger, if you need help ask me I will if I can. If you want to be friendly come on over we are but we will not force you to be friends if you don't want to be.
Hi Pat, sure wish we could meet you girls on the CG sometime. You sound like the kind of people we like to meet and fellowship with. We'll show you some of that good old southern hospitality! Have fun & God bless!

The only real snobish behavior I have seen came from campground owners.
Of course I understand it take all kinds to make the world go around.

That can be anyone that has more money thinking they are better. Doesn't matter if it's a motorhome or car or house. Be like me I have an 86 winnie, so even people with a newer class c paid more than me.

I agree. I don't own anything expensive. The bank does. They just like giving me money.......Silly buggers!!!
