How 'bout (courtesy of the Mamas & Papas), "Go where you wanna go, do what you wanna do, with whoever . . ."

OK - it's dated but then, I have no popular culture at all.

Some of the 'snooty' RV parks are owner-occupied. Each site is owned by an individual. There is a beautiful site for sale at the Pacific Shores RV Resort in Oregon for $149k. It has a gorgeous ocean view. There are other sites for sale there for $74k which don't have the view and they are plentiful. I'm thinking that if somebody springs for that kind of spot, they won't want an antique pop-up tent for a neighbor.

These are like gated communities. Many people don't like people who they perceive as different from them. They like gates, fences, 10-year-rules, ideological purity, dress codes, uniformity, etc.

Maybe it's best they keep to themselves as they are the ones inside the fences and shouldn't come out of their compounds.

With all the beautiful State Parks we have here in Florida, I don't know why anyone would want to stay in a resort. My wife & I stay only at State Parks and love it. My first order of duty when I arrive is to look up all the classic TTs and MHs. I know these are people I want to meet.

Same with Oregon, Doug. Our state parks are gorgeous and in most cases have better, larger and more private sites than the private ones. The one thing they lack, for the most part, is cable tv. We're going to hook up a satellite reception so as to get around that problem.

If you are ever in Oregon, I highly recommend all the state parks (and I'm picky).

all the private owned campgrounds we have stayed at don't care what you are pulling, they just want the money.

I never understood the high end private campgrounds. I have watched the shows featuring the big expensive motorhomes in these luxury parks. I can camp pretty much anywhere and enjoy myself.

I enjoy pulling off the road and finding a Walmart to spend the night. It is the adventure I enjoy at a low cost. Go slow and enjoy the country side.
We stayed on interstate 80 at a small campground that did not have any scenery. It was just a place to park and visit relatives. It was great. We had all the hookups and people were nice. Interstate 80 was are scenery with all the trucks. Many of the people camping there were contractors who were using the campground because of there job. There weren't very many trees for shade.

That does not mean we don't enjoy nice campgrounds. We have stayed at some nice ones. . I am not going to get bent out of shape if people don't want us. I would like to see somebody open a parking area where you pull in, plug in and have access to water. That is it. No store, picnic table or pool. It could just be a parking lot where you pull in spend the night with security and leave. Maybe there are places like that. Have it set up like any other parking lot with parking lines to give RV space. People would know that it is only for RV's and they are to leave in the morning. Just a place to crash and dump.

At least for the designated overnighter spots.
