Something I've noticed on this and other forums; if you don't own a ______(fill in the blanks) MH or RV, you are not welcome to post in "their" section. I have even receive a PM or two, chastising me for doing so. I usually click on "New Posts" or "Today's Posts", and without even looking at what section it is, read whatever looks interesting. I now check what section it is before posting a reply, even if it is a generic question that applies to all RVs.

This past weekend, DW and I camped with 2 class As and a TT while we were in our 5er. No problems what so ever..... but they were all IRV2ers.

Kathryn,
This past winter we camped at an "RV" resort. Our neighbors were as follows, left 40 ft. Class A, right, 25 ft. TT, front left and right, 40 ft. Class A, 35ft, 5vr. So all types of rigs. We cooked out together, shared spots and locations one of us had been that was of interest, etc. Was a lot of fun! We enjoy the commaraderie of all. So have no qualms about your A class as in all walks of life you will mostly find good, the bad and hopefully not too many ugly's.

This is a touchy subject. I wave at Prevost's to Pop up's. I look at it like this, no matter what the cost of the payments they're still just "campers". I have a 42ft class A and treat everybody the same because that is the way my parents raised me. It goes both ways, I have been snubbed of what we camp in. There is no answer for the question. I try to say hello with a hand stretched out with friendly with a "hello neighbor". I do not judge people because I'm not the judge. Good luck

Tired of waving-wave in my RV, wave in my Jeep, wave on my Harley, wave on the ATV-it gets a little monotonus(sp).

We live half time in a Cl A motorhome. If we are driving and someone waves I might wave back if I see it, but since waving seems a bit weird to me I do not go out of my way to notice one way or the other. How you get along with your campground neighbors will depend more on the campground than anything else. Campers, especially vacationers and weekenders may consider us snobs sometimes as we typically do not do campfires and prefer air conditioning and HD TV to sitting outside eaten by mosquitoes. When we are at state parks we typically wait until the weekenders leave and the wildlife comes back before we take our hikes and other outdoor activities. If you make an effort to be friendly and accessible, you will meet many people of like mind. And, besides, what others think of you is none of your concern anyway. It is only important what you think of you.

Regarding waving, I wave on 2 lane roads if I'm not busy. It's fun meeting somebody that's also waving, but completely understandable if they are not!

Regarding being a snob, I agree with the above. I refuse the "us" vs. "them" mentality completely. Actually, I don't even think along these lines. There's no way to do that without judging others, and I refuse to go there.

You do not like getting eaten by mosquitoes? I guess we can not camp by you! I was born in Northern MN and .... hey wait I don't like it either.
I always see it as it is a life style, but just like houses and cars everyone has their own tastes and dollar limit.
There are people that you can not stop and talk to in the campground as you tour but it has nothing to do with what they camp in.

On most 4 lane highways I really don't bother waving but on a two lane road that's a different story. It doesn't matter what you're in, everybody is out just trying to enjoy and relax. I know the resort we were in for the winter everyone respected everyone elses rig whatever it was and believe me there were some pretty big busses there. It was a great winter and it seemed everyone had a great time, I know we did and meeting all the new people we did was great.

I don't have a class A yet. Is it ok if I post here?

We have a TT that we are trying to sell and buy our first class A. Our experience has been that people with class As tend to stay inside their MH where as people with TTs and 5ers tend to spend time outside. When we walk around a park we say hello to everyone who is out and often end up sitting with them for a while. This has not happened with anyone with a class A because they aren't outside. Snobs? Probably not. As someone said earlier they are looking for something different in the campground. We are in our mid 40s and have 5 kids so getting away from the house or the rig is a treat. Plus we enjoy the people we've met. When I do have a class A I hope we still do that. If not I just as well stay at home.

If you see us outside stop and sit for a while.

We spend a lot of time indoors in our motorhome, but I don't think it's because we are snobs. Like RickO, we spend as much time outside on the "patio" while in the coach as we do when at home in the stick house. When you spend several months at a time living in an RV, running outside at every opportunity ceases to be a major goal. We don't have to squeeze all our enjoyment into a short time, so we do it at our own pace. But we do say hello to other Rvers who walk by, we do occasionally have a campfire, and we do eat or cook outdoors now and again.

I think we are just "doing our own thing", but does that makes us snobs? I don't think so...

You get what you give. If you sit in your rig (of any type) and wait for people to come to you then you will feel slighted but if you are out and willing to strike up a conversation then people will open up and talk to you. It doesn't matter what type of RV you have or what occupation you had in a former life. By the way, dogs (yours or theirs) are great ice breakers.
