Rich or poor, new or old we are very equal at the dump. After 20 plus years in a motor home I have never felt a pecking order, although at times I have felt a little envious when a Newel or Marathon parked near me.

I have detected "reverse discrimination" at times. I get a kick thinking that some folks must think I have a lot of money because of my rig.

The truth is that my payments are just higher than theirs. It's nice of the bank to let me use their motor home.

Been Rv'ing since 1957 have never noticed a "class" distinction. You can have as much fun in a tent as in a 45' Newell.

RVIA did change the name from Class A, Class B and Class C to Type A, Type B and Type C to avoid just that distinction. Here's the link to their page showing this.

It's never bothered us as to what rig someone has or if they're in a tent. I guess it's in your perception. It's about the experience, not how you get there or what you stay in.

I am being quite sincere on the subject so don't take this as being dismissive but basically the question is, where in the world and in what circles don't you not find the odd snob? There are some in the RV world that are like that and some of them have fancy Class A's. I have a class A, and I am always friendly. I have found that those who have really nice rigs can be a bit wary. I usually chalk that up to the idea that that for some the attention that their rigs get can some sometimes is perceived as a personal risk. They don't know me and potential "ne'er do wells" can come in any size, shape, colour and gender. Once they have some sense that I am not up to anything, in most cases, the walls come down pretty quickly.
At the end of the day, the world is full of prejudices, bad manners and just plain antisocial behaviour but for everyone of those is 10 of the good kinds. Owning something can't make you snob unless you let it. If others are inclined to think you are just because you have a Class A, that is really their issue, not yours. You are who you choose to be and worrying about what others might think or how they act shouldn't stop you from being the person you want to be and doing the things that you want to do (nothing is unlimited of course). So in the kindest possible terms I would really ask "Who cares" if there are some snobby people in the world? You can't avoid them and they come in all shapes, sizes, and RV colours. Show them that you won't be put off and who knows, maybe you well help them come to a different understanding about world.

I'd rather experience the Newell than the tent, however I don't want to make anyone jealous of my ridiculously high payments, so send your donations to......

LOL! I have a well-used one (now UN-used, thank you Lord!) you can have FREE! Seriously, gotta apologize for my earlier heat. Glad we could both step back and take a breath.

That being said, I HAVE to say, your avatar really is awesome! Don't know where you found it, but DAM, I'm jealous ...

So everyone who owns a Class A find someone who has a Class C or smaller and switch with them!

Ap called Zedge, I believe it was a wall paper for your phone.

Probably should have pm that.

This Avatar is appropriate some times....

I am going to open up and let you have a small glimpse pf my life. This is my Motor Home. Yes, it is a Class A. If you are of lesser class, make your comments now. I am willing to switch with any Class C no matter how painful.

I've had 16', 22', and 26' TT's, Type B, Type C and several Type A's. Never felt like we were better than anyone else just because of what we owned or didn't own.

I camp in a circle with my friends at the dunes west of Yuma. Sometimes small(5-8 rigs), sometimes big(20-30+ rigs) Some sleep in the back of pick-ups or in tents, others in their 45' DP. Everybody is equal out in the dunes and at the campfire.

This is the start of a big circle on a holiday weekend.


My current toys.


And how Segway Sadie and I visit the rigs on the other side of camp. I got tired of having
to unload my rail from that 33' toy hauler on the right, just to have a place to sit down.
Now, I just turn off the key and unload when I want.

Maybe this is why things have changed, but we have not caught up yet.

Class A is now Type A

Class B is now Type B

Class C is now Type C

I have never seen or experienced any snobs in my travels

RVing since 1989, now have a Newmar Mountanaire, 41' diesel pusher, with complete solar system, 3 120 watt panels, 8 interstate U2500HC for coach, 2 interstate 12volt for engine.

It takes all kinds of people , some of the nicest people we've met were " Bikers " towing a small trailer. Listening to their experiences was fascinating.

Thanks--- A. J.
