Lighten up already!! Ya it's not polite but I'm older and can control my enthusiasm long enough to make sure there isn't any where else to park. Whats your suggestion?? After traveling cross country with 3 grand kids (3-7-9) not stopping to see what we came all that way to see??? And yes I've been in National park parking lots where they have RV parking only to have the spots full with cars. So lighten up and smell the roses.

The photo in the OP is a great addition to my picture file labeled "RVingDumb". Many forget they are driving a larger than normal vehicle.

The problem is the hazard the person created by parking where he did. If a car parks where big rigs should, they typically do not block the vision of those around them or stick their butt out into the lane to create a traffic hazard. The same can not be said for a big rig parking in a regular size car parking spot.

If this is the case then they have no business driving one. It is ignorant people like this that cause needless mishaps on the road and I personally have no patience for idiots out there like this one.

That's one reason why I am glad that I don't drive a 40' behemoth.

It was hard finding a parking spot in Mammoth Lakes, CA. I saw a 25' Class C parked in a very tight parking lot with hardly any aisle room to back out. As I was leaving, I saw the people trying to get it out. The whole family were out directing the driver. It must have taken them at least ten minutes to get the RV out. I think it was a rental.

But I drove a little ways and found a nice parking spot along the road.

We seem rather judgmental without actually knowing why.

Maybe an emergency ???

I agree. Too many forget they've made mistakes in the past

We've been in West Yellowstone, many times. That town is loaded with ample places to park a larger coach, without endangering any driving, passing, parking, pedestrian circumstances. There are numerous dirt lots all over the place as well as many side roads with paved parking. Been on them several times. Yes, we can, and often do, become judgemental right off the bat in circumstances like we see in the picture the OP presented but, there's also the other side of the coin.

"Common Sense", Common Courtesy and Common Decency seem to practiced waaaaaaaaaaay less than normal lately. Even if that was an emergency, it takes micro-seconds to realize your parking in a bad situation. Besides unless it was a medical emergency, for which I seen no "Emergency" or, "Hospital Emergency Entrance" in the picture, the operator could have easily moved to a better, safer parking location within almost feet of where they're parked. Oh well, it's not the first time that kind of thing has happened. And, pretty darn sure, it will happen a few zillion times again.

I don't really see a hazard. I can't for a minute think that with the traffic present someone is going to run into the MH. For limited traffic it may not even be a real obstacle.

The way people drive their cars and MH's is much more troublesome for me than the way they park.

I would have pulled up farther.

well !! i live in west and this happens EVERY day! if you look in the photo the trees in the back ground are the border to yellowstone and that whole street in ment for rv parking. You can also see there is not a single rv parked there. Also ALL interior blocks are for oversized parking ( every block in town ) this is only one example of the stupid people that visit our national parks ( not everyone) just some
