Class A snobbery

Stereotyping Class A owners as snobs is EXACTLY the same type of unreasonable and prejudicial behavior that you are accusing them of. There are snobs in all categories. Some 5th wheelers snub the pop up guy, some pop up guys snub the tent camper, etc.

It's like the airport restaurant discussion;

Guy 1 How can you fly coach when first class is worth the extra money.?

Guy 2 Why would anyone fly commercial air when chartering a plane is so much more convenient?

Guy 3 I'd never be caught dead in a rented plane, just buy your own private jet.

It don't matter what our where, there are snobs and good people everywhere. Stereotyping anyone based on what kind of RV they own is ridiculous.

Good post Raining Star!

The posts that kill me are the ones that talk about what other think We've all seen 'em ... 'Class A people think this ..." or "Tent campers think that...". I can't help but chuckle as I'm thinking to myself "project much?".

For that guy that thinks he's a cut above anyone else, I just say that everyone's entitled to their own opinion and he's probably the only one that thinks that!

There is a certain amount of snobbery found in every large group; it has little to do with what type of RV they own. Do you really this this guy would have a personality change if he traded his MH for a 5'er? Lots of us own both a class A and a 5'er, and/or a toy hauler, does that mean we're split personalities?

Sounds more like he's one of those who can't stand to see kids having fun when their fun gets a bit noisy. I bet he'd have the same reaction if a class A full of kids, pulling a trailer full of ATV's & dirt bikes pulled in next to him.

The only time I think of "class a snobbery" is the fancy-pants exclusive resorts with age restrictions. Dh and I have owned them all. We always say hello to neighbors and still drool over spiffy new 5ers or stellar vintage TT. We also can't help but smile and remember fondly our pop-up days as we watch the young family across from us set up camp

Actually tent people are snobs. They get their own private areas in campgrounds that we can't use, yet they can use ours.

We got set up and here came this guy out of the motor coach came right over introduced himself and started chatting under our dirty awning. Found out he owned a large construction co in Florida and after visiting for a while asked me what I did and I replied I was in the military. He stood up and shook my hand again and thanked me for my service so I assume there are some good class A folks out there.

I concur with this post. We started in a tent, up graded to a class C. Then came a pop up while the kids were young. Then a backpacking tent for awhile. The last two steps were DPs. During all those types and a span of 30 plus years, I never encountered a snob. I'm sure they are out there and I hope you never encounter another.

I think the target is misplaced. A lot of us in all kinds of campers have a major distaste for ATV's. The issue is ATV's which are usually hauled by toy haulers.

Interesting post!

I started out (with my parents) in tents, then a pop-up, and then husband and I bought a used class A. Loved all of them.

There is a thread here where we have Class C, Class A, Toy Haulers, and TTs. Some of them are older, some home made, one the owner calls the turd, and others that have been restored. Diesel and gas. No-one cares, it's the people we like. We are going to meet up in August of 2017 to spend time together and I can't wait.

You deal with snobbery any where and I guess this place is no different. That's why I spend my time on the threads that I like the people on. Most here just want to visit and help each other. Concentrate on them and enjoy yourself whatever you own.

Lynne
