We had a camp host run us right into a tree - more than a scratch, it tore the rubber on the roof and put a nice scratch across the very top. He apologized, but that was it. We were near an RV service repair and got it fixed. Doesn't look great but no leaks...

Few years ago, I used to race sailboats. it was nearly like bumper cars. If you wanted to be competitive, you had to sail close - real close. If you were worried about scratches, you shouldn't take them out.
But I agree, it's all your responsibility. If you can't get in, give them the option of trimming the tee. I've never been refused yet.

Thanks for the commiserating

We left the park after the power had been out for 3 or more hours with no idea of when it may come back on....
the wife wanted to leave since we were just across town visiting...

so pulling out in the rain at night with NO lights in the whole city -
was somewhat difficult to see any overhead limbs

If you have your insurance company repair it (you many not want to)
they will try and recover they money IF they can.

Still counts against you (even if the laws says it can not).

Be careful about pruning in State and National Park campgrounds. Many have very strict rules about that and they get very upset. Ironically, these are the often the parks that give you the most problems with tree limbs.

Personally, I always ask before I prune anything. If I can't get into a site without rubbing tree limbs, and they won't let me prune, I ask for another site, or a refund and go to another CG.

My first Car was a 1970 Maroon GTO, and the first thing I did was go hunting in it. People thought I was really whacked, but my main purpose in owing any vehicle was, and is, to go to where I want to go. And yes, it came back from that first trip with scraches all over but I didn't care as I knew that it was inevitability going to happen anyway. So Be It.

Yes! The NPS Dept of Pruning and Trimming has total power.

Naw! The camp host is most accommodating and may do it for you.

Your rig does not need to be 45 ft to be to wide or tall.

I would sue the insurance company that holds the policy for the trailer.

Tell them that the trailer was hiding in the bushes and it jumped out in front of you unexpectedly.

Just thinking if they were liable for every scratch campgrounds would have to cover that cost and it would make CG's too expensive for us all.

Just man up, admit it was your fault and no fault of others and learn to avoid obstructions rather than drive through them.
