Parked Vehicles

We are in a nice RV park that is very crowded. The person across the drive parked his large truck in a way that partially blocked his neighbors site. Early in the morning when the neighbor tried to leave he had a extremely difficult time of it. He was pulling a medium size TT. Had I been aware of his difficulties I would have moved our car, which would have helped the situation. By the time I noticed what was happening he was in a position that stopped me from moving our car.


My question; Is is acceptable to ask a neighbor to move his parked vehicle to facilitate access/egress from your site. I have done that on rare occasions and it has never been an issue.


I am aware of the fact that some campers are not aware of the problems they cause others by their lack of situation awareness.

I see this happen all the time. Some People are just inconsiderate of others. At the moment we are in a similar type of campground most people have parked their TVs in a areas where they are not hindering anyone coming or going. If the people who insist on parking in the way may have to actually walk 50 feet to get to their vehicle if they parked in the same areas. Oh No Heaven Forbid!!!

Of course it's appropriate to ask folks to move a vehicle in a crowded RV park. And I've never had anybody object to being asked. I suppose the attitude of the "asker" might come into play too.

If I will be leaving early and there is a questionable situation, I will often ask the evening before if they mind moving their vehicle so that I can get out in the morning without waking them up. Never had a problem yet.

Yes it is acceptable to ask but plan ahead particularly if your schedule includes an early AM departure. I give my neighbors at home prior notice when I plan to head out so they leave me space to back out of the driveway.

Some people scatter their extra vehicles around their campsites like children’s forgotten toys. If they are in the roadway or outside their campsite boundaries, then absolutely ask them to move, or if the situation doesn’t feel right, go to the CG management. They almost always have rules about this.

I run into this somewhat frequently because I often visit campgrounds where my 35’ is about the maximum that will fit, so a carelessly parked vehicle blocking even a small part of the fairway definitely makes things more difficult. I haven’t asked any of these folks to move yet, but some have probably gotten the idea while witnessing my 17 point turn getting out

I have been in that situation many times. I have no problem asking a neighbor to move their vehicle, and they've always been happy to comply!

I am doing YOU a favor by letting you know you should move your vehicle. Hard to top that approach.

May be that they are inconsiderate, or perhaps they just lack common sense.

Blocking my site.......heck YES

Not blocking my site BUT parked where it will make it difficult leaving....YES


YES it is acceptable to ASK 'neighbors' to act like 'neighbors'

Talk to your neighbors....when you arrive, while your there, when leaving
Scheesh!
