I suspect the situation is that people with toy haulers tend to be weekend camper young couples with kids and kids' friends. The kids are on fun time and naturally rambunctious. Class A people tend to be retired folks looking for peace and quiet. There is a reason why so many mobilehome parks are restricted to age 55+

I haven't really seen much of that, but maybe I was just numb to any slights. We've had everything except a Class B, but I haven't changed except to grow older. We sold our Class A a few years ago and have only had FWs since. I'll still speak with anyone that approaches me first, because I'm an introvert.

This is something we may not be considering here. That guy in the huge Class A that seems to walk around with his nose in the air may be a wonderful guy, but is an introvert and is afraid to make the first move.

Next time you see someone that you think is snobbish, try walking up to him with a big smile on your face and say "Hi, I'm ........., just wanted to say hello! He will either confirm your suspicions that he's indeed a snob, OR he may turn out to be one of the nicest guys you've ever met!

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.
It goes both ways. I know Casita owners who think they are better then Class A owners.

I have not noticed any Class A snobbery on this forum. No matter what class of RV one has, each has their gripes about things that were omitted, don't work, warranties, insurance, leaky roofs and so on. Plus, there's people who love what they have. More power to 'em!

I have been going to a RV resort in Ventura, California lately. Seems like over half of the campers there are in Class As. Each of them have been very friendly with no airs of snobbery.

My wife is kind of that way - not on purpose. She is know for being warm and friendly from those that meet her, but she has some health issues that make her seem unaware.

I hadn't seen any snobbery either.

There are places I have seen online that cater to this "snob" appeal. https://lakegreenwoodresort.com/ is only open to Class A coaches. If you happen to have a Newmar 5th wheel, you are SOL!!!!

The only time I've noticed it was at an FMCA rally where all the Prevosts, Marathons etc where camped together. If I see someone having problems I get out my tools and help them if I can.

I also saw that post and it was totally uncalled for. Please don't think all Class A owners think the same. There is room for all of us out there!


POST THAT WAS OFFENSIVE:
Quote:
"I check the various RV park review websites in areas we plan to visit. I avoid areas likely to be problematic or only visit midweek or during the off season. Some of the most expensive rigs have carried some of the most self-centered young RV'ers we've encountered. We have had very few problems because I realize that for many, their having a good time (and way too often with the toy hauler crowd that means thinking their kids can do anything anywhere) is perfectly okay at my expense. We simply do not go where they do when they do."

Many years ago I got my first rv. A 12 year old pop up. After a few local weekends to check things out off we went to Fort Wilderness at Disney world. We checked in and were surprised that we were one of the only people in the section. Off we went to the park. When we came back the night were shocked to see the whole area filled with Prevosts. Turned out we had come the same time they were having a convention. Over the next week we got the nasty looks and even comments. But we also met some really nice people who even invites us over. Are there some snobs driving class a's? Yes but here also some great people driving class a's. What the snobs think....who cares!!!

Suggest those offended by my post to reread my original post. No where was there stereotyping in my post. Simply called out something read on this forum. If you are offended by my post, maybe it hits home.

We have a Toy Hauler. So does that make our kids (grand-kids) unruly or troublesome?
And, our RV is a Class A. Does that make us snobs?

Nah...these are generalizations.

We have met campers in every type camping apparatus (we were there, once too) and these folks are most typically very nice.
But, there are exceptions...there's always exceptions.

And, I will say "Sorry" to anyone that ever thought we were snobby.
It's usually right when we arrive or are departing. The neighbors will stroll over to ask about the Outlaw. We know it is interesting that there's a garage and suspended patio on a Class A...it's just hard to talk during the arrival or departure routine.

We will show-off a bit after arrival...so just give us a bit to get set-up

Safe travels
