I understand merging the threads because the OP asked the same question on two different boards. I think she was trying to gauge the responses from two different groups to the same question.

How about moving the entire thread to a board that has a more general focus. Say for instance iRV2.com General Discussion - iRV2 Forums. That way it will likely be seen and responded to by all and not just Class A folks.

I'm not a fan of multiple- posting, but for the first time ever I'm disappointed that a set has been merged!

I think the most interesting thing about this discussion has been the widely disparate levels of participation in the (originally five!) places the O.P. posted it...
I've been following all five with great interest.

The numbers of views vs. responses in each forum is in itself most illuminating!

But perhaps the most interesting fact that emerges in response to the O.P.'s question is that of over 1500 views (total), the approximately 100 responses are nearly ALL from Class A owners!

The cohort to whom the question is directed, those who tow their RVs, has been mostly silent.

What is to be made of their silence I leave to the O.P. to decide....

I need to merge all threads on this topic and the suggestion to move it all to General Discussion. I'll be doing that soon.

I would just like to say that money doesnt buy you class. The notion that more money makes a person more important is as ridiculous as thinking that because you can afford an exotic sports car makes you are a superior driver. If you believe that there are many videos on You tube where guys with more money than brains smash up 200k cars doing burnouts.
You will meet really nice people and [moderator edit] when you gather enough of the population like camping does, your bound to find a huge variety of personalities.

With that said people with Class A's may be wrongly viewed as snobbish simply because they may spend more time inside their RV than someone with lesser room or comforts inside. Not because they are snobbish just able to do more inside than outside.

Did you know the Segway company owner lost control of his and drove off a cliff to his death?

I drive a Class A. I don't consider myself a snob, I even have friends that don't drive Class A's.
I do however ask that they park a couple of spaces down from me and only visit after dark.

JUST KIDDING!!!

They can visit during the day.

LOL

Just found this thread a few minutes ago so I guess I missed some now deleted posts. The remaining posts have been interesting and reminded me of a couple of incidents we experienced last summer.

First one was when we pulled into a site at the same time a couple in a Type A was pulling into the adjacent site on our driver side. I was starting to lower my landing gear when the lady from the A asked us to move our rig further over so they could open their awning. I checked to make sure I had parked correctly and my wife gently explained to them that they could open their awning if they properly aligned their rig in their site, which they did.

A second time in a different state, we had to leave our site for a few hours to get some repairs done. When we returned we found a Type A rig had pulled in next to us and was running his 50 amp cord over to our electric box as his wasn't working. We explained that we needed our 50 amp service as the temps were in the high 90s. He said we could 'get by' on 30 amp since he 'needed' 50. (We both had two ACs). We suggested he take up his problem with the campground office since we were going to use the 50 amp we were paying for. He did.

Maybe it didn't matter what kind of rig each of us were driving or towing, but in both those cases, it seemed to us that those folks felt the world revolved around them. But I hasten to add, in over fifteen years of RVing, those two instances were the exceptions. Overall, we've found fellow RVers to be a great bunch of folks, no matter the mode of travel.

We have had a Class C and now a Class A. We usually don't wave because DH is driving and by the time I could wave, the other RV has already gone by us. Now in the CG, we walk the dog and say hi to everyone we see. Also in Rest Areas we have talked to truck drivers and RVers. Personally, I don't care what people camp in. If they are happy that's all that matters. We were in a campground in Florida that had 3 sections. Having never been to this CG, we were put in the 'Preserve' because we had a Class A. We had one owner who let us know in no uncertain terms that we were renters and she didn't like it one bit. And heaven forbid if your rig was over 10 years old. I almost fell over laughing when a Class C pulled in and parked for a few nights. Not sure why some people think they are better than others, but that is the way it is. So just go out and enjoy yourself and don't worry about what others think.
