Simple, we don't have overnight guests! I am always amazed at the people who do. First, most people don't understand the "idiosyncrasies" of some of the facilities and end up damaging something. Then there is the issue of where to store their "stuff". My husband and I use every square inch of our rig.
So I don't bring sheets or blankets for the fold out bed. Problem solved.

We have 6 cats (and a 7th coming soon) so people don't ask to stay with us!

I prefer opening, air'ing up, deflating, and stow'ing the hide-a-bed myself. Less chance of something getting broken!
Wife deals with the bedding.

The only guests we'd have would be direct family, i.e., the grown kids or the grandkids. Others are on their own.

We go camping to get away from people. Why would we want to bring guests?

Guests are a pain. Even with instructions such as don't slam this, if you have to force it......dont, the head works like this, take your shoes off ect. ect. they still manage to screw it up. I work way to hard keeping my coach in top shape to have morons busting things up and leaving a trail of mess and disaster.

We have had overnight guests a total of three times I think. Our nephew and his GF that we have a blast with, friends that were supposed to be in a hotel nearby that the reservations got screwed up and could not find a room anywhere nearby and last a couple of friends we asked to stop by and it got late and a few beers so we did not want them to drive.

Of all three no one ever even asked to use our bath and used the CG facilities. Meals and about everything else outside so no crowding in the MH. The sofa slides out for a pretty comfortable bed. I know from being instructed to go there because apparently I snore on occasion.

My kids are my only overnight guests, too. To me, it's just too small quarters to share with anyone else.

I guess (as usual on these forums) we do things differently. Our guests are always welcome and are just that ... guests. We do what we can to make them comfortable and pick up the mess after they leave. We value our friends and family and love to share what we have and we do with them.

While we've only had overnight guests a couple of times our friends are welcome if they can find us, they do have to understand that they'll be sleeping in reclining chairs as we removed that horrible jack knife thing they call a bed. It's usually only for one night, I value my friends too much to be offended by the small stuff. However I might ask them to bring an extra six pack to go with the BBQ.

RV's have always required "rules" as they are significantly different then a S&B. We had a 16 foot Shasta trailer growing up. One of the rules was only 1 person up at a time. Dad did not hesitate to remind us or anyone else if we forgot the rule.


Don't be afraid to set the rules early on (before they come to stay), add new ones as they come up, and remind the guests of the rules should they forget. As most everyone else has pointed out, we worked hard to get our RV and work harder to maintain it.

X2 we enjoy having our friends and family share what we have.
