I don't find that either and we talk to everyone.

Ya know, if certain folks are the kind of person (people) who are attracted to promoting, and engaging in this valueless, phony, "class warfare" GAME, (in this case labeling folks as "snobs" based on the kind of RV rig they drive), such folks are really a long way from figuring out or appreciating what is at the heart of, or the core motivation of, the RV lifestyle.

If ya can't live without contributing to such absolute nonsense, move to Washington D.C. where certain folks thrive on such b.s. cause it sure ain't what motivates the heart and soul of the vast majority of RV'rs that we've shared campfires with all across this nation.

Peace, Harmony and FREEDOM to ya all.

Of course if someone doesn't return a wave, they have issues beyond being shy or a snob.
My wife could have written this post, She to is shy and sometimes it takes a bit of time. Now me, she worries when I'll be back when I take the pups for a walk, depends on how many new friends I make.

Have not found snobbery to be an issue. Of course, I'm an introvert and I've rubbed off on my DW, so maybe we just don't notice people being that way. We've owned everything from a backpack to a Class A, and now a medium sized FW, and I could care less if someone looks down on me for any reason. Just get out there and enjoy life regardless of the size of your pocketbook.

SNOB

The folks that don't know me call me "Oh, no, here he comes, better perk up"

The people that Work for me call me, "Oh Sh&t here he comes, better do something"

The people that hang out with me call me when they need something, because they know I will do what I can.

Only the folks that are intimidated by me call me a snob,,,,, like I care

I have a Class A, but just the other day had the best of times with the folks next ot us in a Tent.......

I don't think the "class a" makes the Snob come out, I think it is the Perception that folks have,

The same folks that can't see past their nose....

Just a bigger toy. Big toys, little toys--not a big deal. The way I look at it, no matter
what you own, there will always be someone with one a little better and more
expensive. I'm just glad for what I've got and look forward to the next thrill of driving the open roads of the USA. After almost full-timing the past two years, I've yet to meet a unfriendly RVer or camper. I'm sure I will, but not yet.

Being a Bank-Owned RV renter (LOL), I wonder if it is a bit of intimidation that gives the people who view Class A campers as snobs? Surely you don't just assume because the people have a big rig that that are un-approachable and snobbish.

Heck, I'm one of the nicest people they would ever meet! Just ask me!
In fact, I might just exceed their expectations as a likeable guy and spend all my time at their campsite dinking and carrying on and eventually they may have to get rude and ask me to leave I'm so friendly. LOL

I think it depends a lot on the campground you stay in. Most state, county, and muncipal camprounds seem to be friendly for everyone. I find myself being my own biggest critic. If your rig looks crappy you sense it. Clean it up, and let folks think you are a eccentric who has restored a classic old bus. Class A's seem to be more for the dedicated full timers. Try to be a good neighbor to everyone.

Smile Just saw this thread on Facebook

We are sitting is a campground right now. Us in our class A there are tents, pop ups, airstream, class C's all around. They all have young children and we do not. They all seem to be friends and sit together and we are the outsiders. I...s it because our rig is bigger or do they think we are snobs because they think we paid alot for our rig? Little do they know.. we love being around kids, love the laughs and their games. But I can also see where alot of people with their class A could be considered. They don't wave while driving because they are driving! Their rig may have cost $$$$$ and they want it to stay perfect. The interior comfort is so nice... What is the answer in my opinion... Go over and talk to them!We mentioned this thread to a few friends here at the campground and they said it is no different than at home and then we thought about when we go boating. Us in our sailboat where we don't have the full generator to keep a/c running so we sit on deck the majority of the time. Then there are those who just like to be on the water and as soon as they get anchored go inside to the comfort. Relinda

Ted wanted me to add to the driving and waving thing... Do you really want someone driving a class A rig to take their hands off the wheel? Have you seen some of these drivers?
