I like to associate with #3.
Hope to see you at the campground some day.
Happy Trails.

Maybe many times it's the insecurity of the person offended. I have yet to meet an RVer that is not proud of what they have and like to talk it up. Possibly just proud, not talking others down.

Methinks how much people spend only proves how far in dept they are willing to go in an attempt to impress others.

Or maybe they are just thankful to have much MORE than they every dreamed they could ?
and / or new owners that have not had their first breakdown or water leak

Way too much junior high drama in this thread for my liking. First and foremost - I focus on what people do - NOT what they say. In the OP's first post in this thread - it was reported this "uppity neighbors" think their neighbors should move. In my experience, it's park management that decide if/when/where folks move within a park. What others think is rarely part of the equation. My advice to the OP would be to focus on your own actions .. and not worry about you think the new neighbors are thinking.

Yes sir, I was one of those uppity people. We pulled into our assigned site and after trying to get it level so we could put our slide and awning out we gave up. We went back to the office and asked for a different site after we explained our problem. Later after we were set up the people that were next to us in the tent happened to come by walking their dogs,. We said hi and asked what type of dogs they had. We asked if they would like a cold soda and to sit and talk. They said thanks that would be great. They said someone with a rv just like ours left after a while after just pulling and left. We just figured they didn't like being next to a tent and some dogs. We asked what site was that and when they told us my wife and I both started laughing. We told them that was us and their face got real red. We went on to explain why we had to move and that being next to a tent and dogs did not bother us. The problem was that we just could not get the rv where we could set it up. When people ask how much my rv cost I just tell them I bought it when it was 5 years old and could never afford it if it was new. I tell them I found it on the web and put a ridiculous low price to start with figuring the owner would laugh and counter offer. We never heard anything for two days so we figured they did not want to counter offer. Like I said we put a real low bid in. On the third day we got a call from where they had it on consignment and asked when we wanted to pick it up. I asked what the counter offer was and they said no counter offer they took what you offered. As the saying goes, it helps to be in the right place at the right time.
The crazy thing was three weeks later the consignment office called and said they had a couple there that wanted to buy it. They said they would give a great profit. I told the wife and she said it has everything you and I want so no.

In response to post.
You are hardly seem what I call uppity. You sound quite out going and very friendly. The type that make up good RV communities where all can enjoy life. Uppity is a group of one or more clickish people who decide they don't like you at first sight either because of the appearance of your rig or because you are not like they are. Some real uppity people will even go so far as to get you kicked out of the park just for spite. By telling lies about you to park management or causing a scene in the park. I have known such people. The saying goes some people ruin the fun for everyone else.

Why would you give someone (and a complete stranger at that!!)so much control over your life? Insecurity perhaps? Maybe a little too nosey yourself?

You, my friend, need to get out and see and enjoy life and stop worrying about this petty stuff. Honestly, I have not heard anyone talk like you since Jr high and high school.

If you go looking for problems you will find them. I suggest you stay away from them so you do not see or hear anything you don't want to.
