Being a new shiny-trailer owner, we didn’t know what to expect from gawkers. So far we’ve seen nothing more than a few rubber necks, and a couple of friendly waves from fellow campers. After reading this thread, I’m not sure how I will react to aggressive curiosity.
We leave in two days to go to a church camp retreat we’ve attended for most of the last dozen years. This will be our first year not staying in a church-owned cabin. Due to the 34’ length of our trailer, there will be limits where we can park. Minutes ago I called the grounds director to give him a heads-up, and to ask what we need to know before we come (100’ power cord and white hose, and 50’ grey water hose). While we are talking, his wife pipes up in the background to inform me that she’s coming to see in our new home the minute we pull onto the grounds.
She’s a sweet lady that we love dearly, but this sounds like our wakeup call. I assured them they will be our first house guests. But I may ask them to help devise a strategy for distracting others’ attention away from us. (We will be parked conspicuously, and RVs are not the norm at this camp.) We look forward to entertaining, but it has to be on our terms.
