I'm a State Park kind of guy, I just happen to own a Class A motor home instead of a tent these days. Of course, tent campers make fun of us!

We're not Campers, we're Glampers
I think I'm going to steal the "Glampers" quote Don. That is awesome. You just have a little more space and amenities than the campers.

It's a free country. They can do what they want, I can do what I want. I'm OK with that.

You're lucky that you didn't find a note stuck to your "free" morning newspaper that read:

NOTE:
We have received a complaint that you have been enjoying the outdoors while your RV has been parked on our property.
We have rules and restrictions meant to discourage people like you from coming and ruining this resort for others.
Trouble makers like you, (and coaches older than 10), belong in state parks and other such places.

There are also Rv, 5th wheel and TT parks that exclude rigs over tens years old. They are always full. It's called free enterprise capitalism. and it works!

The other side of the coin

We've had some instances of really bad neighbors while campling. Once in a county park and once in a state park. In both cases we moved as soon as we could. Once it was people in tents and another a poorly maintained old trailer, and those delightful folks had thrown their garbage UNDER MY COACH!

We were at a county park a couple of weeks back and some numbskull set up a freakin' drum set outside his tent! (What's the difference between a drummer and a 767 taking off? About 3db.). He disturbed the peace of the entire area for about 3 hours and then packed up & left. He wasn't a very good drummer either.

I can kinda see their viewpoint. They're trying to prevent these types of problems.

It's not personal but it's hard to not take it personally.

What do the problems you cited have to do with whether or not an RV is a Class A, a Super C or a 5th Wheel, for instance? Do you think that all of us who own 5th Wheels throw garbage under MHs or set up drum sets outside the RV? That anyone without a Class A MH is trailer trash?

Yes, the Class A Only park owners certainly have a right to set up whatever rules they wish, but I would hate to think that RVers would make a blanket judgement of others based upon the type of rig that one has.

Unfortunately, the can and they do.

I'll just spend my money somewhere else. Like somewhere it's appreciated. There's no reason to get worked up about it, I just move on down the road.

So if we're clampers in our Class A's due to space and amenities - were we crampers when we used our tents. Even though we eventually made our way to a rather large backpacking tent (Mountain Hardware Sky View III) that accompanied us in our B Van days, that tent was cramped. Roomy has a different meaning in backpacker speak. It was really nice to camp that way but we were young. Lol. Would do it all again but not now.

You don't think that stuff could be hung on the awning supports of, say, an entry level gasoline Class A (or, God forbid, even a Marathon Prevost conversion or a Newell)? The type of RV doesn't define the character or behavior (or wealth, quite frankly) of the owner.

Not my thinking

Did I say that I ran an RV Park? For the record I do not.

That is not my thinking, but it sure seems to be theirs. It is simply their way of 'profiling'. We all know that profiling is wrong, right?

We've been asked to send pictures (with date stamps!) when making reservations at a couple of places. At one private RV park (which was a DUMP IMHO) they walked out to our rig & did a full walk around. As I said it's very hard not to take is personally.

I liked the bras hung out to dry! Best time to meet your neighbors!
