I saw a "Trespassers will be violated" sign on a scary looking van, once.

It was in between two bumper stickers that read:
"If the vans a rockin' don't come a knockin' "
and
"Don't laugh, your daughter might be in here"

We have never had anything stolen in an RV park, or anywhere, for that matter, from home or auto either.

Could that be because we have an "I [heart] my Doberman Pinscher" sign on our window?

Or our Dobie(s) are generally inside said vehicle or home and everyone knows it?

Nah--it's because we live in good ol' backwoods Idaho, where neighbors are still neighborly and people stop to help you, not hurt you, on the road.

Well, we need to let this poor angry bird have his space. After all we are all different and that is what makes it fun.

How about give the guy the benefit of doubt? Maybe he stops in less desirable places, such as Wallmart or rest areas or truck stops. Also, some pretty bad neighborhoods maybe. When I was an OTR driver I had what you might consider "unfriendly" warning stickers (not suitable for Air Forums publication. Does that make me a bad person? Sal

There have been times years past that I was camping to get away from all the problems at home and work. Those times meant I didn't want visitors, no matter how well being they may have been. Sometimes we want to be left alone. It's not you, it's us. Give the guy a break. Peace,jim

I wonder how many potential thieves would actually respect such a sign and move on to the next RV?

So what does the average Airstreamer do when seeing another AS in a CG? I know about blink the lights on the road. We have stayed at many CGs with ASs but only spoken to a few. Made good friends with one at Glacier our 1st year.

Look forward to your comments and how we should move forward.

Wait until someone is outside, walk over, say "Howdy, nice Airstream you have there!" from about 6-8 feet away.

Sufficient to start a conversation or determine if the individual is interested in chatting. The rest follows as normal...😄

I always ask what year is their camper. It's always the first thing people ask me. I have been camping a few times where the other Airstream owner in the campground (because it's usually only one, if there is another one) didn't want to talk at all, but usually it's instant friends...

I don't see the advantage to putting a "no trespassing" sign in the front window anyway. The place to put it is next to the door; anyone coming in through the window isn't trespassing, he's breaking-and-entering.

If he wants to warn people out of his campsite entirely, he needs a "no trespassing" sign stuck in the dirt at the edge of the site to mark his boundary, since there's no fence to show the limits of his (rented) campsite. And even then it would not apply to any campground employees, any more than a stick-and-brick apartment-dweller can keep out his landlord. The property owner's rights trump the property renter's rights.

But that said, his sign in the window would work on me if I saw it. I wouldn't approach his trailer unless he was sitting outside, and even then I'd just say "Hi" and wave as I walked on by, same as I do for any fellow camper.

It is a newest trailer with a door towards the back. so sign is actually in the back window but by the door. Just easy to see on an angle by the laundry.

Guess just needs and wants his space.

They ain't all as friendly as me. I always try to catch Airstreaming neighbors outside and introduce myself. Lots of times I never see them come out of the trailer and then they're gone-
