Guest RV Rules

Just wondering how you handle when you
have guests ? As far as, them putting away
their bedding, tech stuff and swim clothes?

I told them my husband mentioned deflating
The air mattress and putting away bedding.

They said it's no biggie! Just leave it out.

So when they left, I put it all up so we could
a living room to get around in.

Any tips ?

If my guests do not follow my rules, they will not be guests again.

When we bring the grandson that lives with us he used to sleep on an air mattress on the floor of the Dutch Star. It gets deflated and put away daily. In the Magna he sleeps on the J lounge

The few times that we have people stay with us in the MH, they do sleep on the fold out couch. Coming morning time, everything gets put away so that we have room to move around. It might be a pain in the back side but that is the way it goes. For those that do not like our rules, then they can sleep outside on the ground!
We are the ones that pay for and maintain our MH.

When we have guests my wife doesn't have to do anything they do it all. Most of the time its our grand kids or Kids. Or both.When they leave the MH is cleaner and better than it was before.

X2...why would you let them even suggest that it doesn't get put away. If it were me they would be very shocked to find the blow up mattress in a tent the next night, and my couch and MH all the way it should be inside. And next trip they wouldn't be asked, or they would be told to come along in their own RV they could rent if needed.

that's when you say "I wasn't asking if you wanted it put away, I was telling you it needs to be put away, that's our Living Room"

The "suggestion" you made was the polite way. In our rig, the next words would not be so polite, more along the lines of "We, it's a biggie for me, so they have to be put away. Now.". And they darn sure would never get another invitation. But we rarely invite guests anyway, just maybe our adult daughter.

We sometimes have cocktails for much more than 6, and have even done dinner for 8 one blustery night when weather tried to spoil our fun, but "sleeps 2" is a good rule.

I'll be honest ... I'm not crazy about guests inside our coach period.

Most folks don't understand that RV innards and RV living work best when there's a soft touch involved. They don't realize that the screen entry door is NOT built like the screen door on a "sticks and bricks" house. They don't realize that fresh water (and space in hold tanks) are limited commodities.

My coach has everything my wife and I need ... and we baby it. We saved for years to be able to purchase it ... and are very aware of the costs associated with operating it.

I may be a bit of prick for putting it so bluntly - but, damn training the typical guest simply takes more time than I'm willing to invest.
