Do we have any recourse from the rv park?

New rv, new scratch :( Momma ain't happy...
Not a big deal to me, can repair the scratch...

but just wondering, should we have a reasonable expectation that our rv's can go through the campground without being scratched by trees ?

It's local so will go back through to see what could have done it...

Nope, it's buyer beware.

Welcome to the scratch club.

When you go to a park with trees, boulders around the corners, steel pipes to protect the grass, etc., scratches should be expected

I concur with other members. It is YOUR responsibility to operate your vehicle safely. If you get a scratch, it's because you operated your vehicle too close to an obstruction.

I carry a limb saw and will prune as necessary (with the park owners permission) or find another park.

I agree...but it doesn't hurt to mention it to the CG management especially if its tree branches over hanging a road...which could easily cut.

Yea, but we feel your pain!

Nothing like 4 hours of buffing out scratches to help you remember to look for the trees!

Sometime that's just going to happen. Regardless of how careful you try to be sooner or later one will show up. I'm sure a little elbow grease will get it out. If you do find something that may have prevented it at the campground then I would surely bring it up to management. Good luck and hope you can get it out.

Scratches just show that you use your coach.

Seriously, I dinged my first coach on both sides in the first month. Both times was maneuvering in the storage yard. I eventually learned to judge the tail swing.

years ago I sailed with a guy whose job was the turning over of new yachts to their purchasers. He said that he got in the habit of opening a lazerette (storage bin) anf handing the new owner a marlin spike and telling the to go ahead and put the first scratch on boat and get over it.
