I find it hard to understand the thinking of people as in Huntsville, Texas. How can an RV Park take business away from hotels in the area. I am traveling in my RV, I am not going to be staying in a Hotel in Hunstville but would by pass the town completely if there is no place to park. Which would cost the businesses in the area. If I am camping in a tent and there is no place to stay I will by pass the town, however if I am tenting in the town and the weather changes there is a chance I may take advantage of a hotel or motel for a night or two. I am safer today staying in my RV then I would be staying in a Hotel. If I am staying in my RV there is a chance that I may decide to have a dinner out which could benefit the hotels or other restaurants in the area. Look like to me there are more benefits to the RV park than negatives.

I agree with the poster below. If the powers that be are serious about making the green changes they talk about, the RV travel way of life will be fuel-priced out of existence for most Americans.

Upset about the Maine Campground story. IMHO almost all of these measures enacted to minimize Covid are in direct contravention of the US Constitution. It is one thing for govts to recommend certain measures, but totally different to pick and choose businesses to close and suffer extreme financial loss. One store closes while Walmart, Target, Lowe’s, Home Depot, etc. can stay open.

So the mask mandate on planes, trains, buses and the airports etc was in place before Biden. Come on man!

It is my opinion that RV’n is going to fade away due to cost fuel and taxes. RV’s are not GREEN enough. The coming of the new energy policy will kill off RV”s.

Fuel costs? I was still RV camping when gas was at the $4.00 gallon mark.

I have traveled around the world over 30 yrs. and have paid as much as $9 a gal. in some places. In some places people only put in a few gals./liters just enough to go and come back // short trips only. Green ideas// high tax on fuels. Right now we can go (drive) anywhere we want because of cheap fuel.

If we had gotten help from the kindness of strangers we would still be stuck out miles from Bismark ND. Our pop up in 2011 July got a flat tire. We noticed we did not have a unit to prop it up on. So with no cell service we thought we were doomed. Until a group of hispanic men jumped out of this truck and out of no where pulled out all of these tools. Within 10 minutes tire fixed and then they were gone. We tried to pay them and they said push it forward. No idea were they came from. We got blessed. Then in 2016 we were again with another flat tire in Maine. Middle of no where. A gentleman from the park service near where we were pulled up, got out and helped us change the tire. We thought we were covered to change this tire. Couldn’t get the nuts off. Within minutes we were on our way again. So yes, I would get help from strangers.

Follow up to this? We were blessed with the help and kindness of strangers. As for the UP of Michigan? You could not find a bunch of nicer people. As for Liberty Mutual? We cancelled them when we got home. The customer service was nothing short of rude and told us they do not service RVs. Progressive told us if we had them? They would have had that fixed in no time flat. No pun intended. And made sure we were safe. No flats since. Fingers crossed.

Tampa RV show ended on the 17th. Since then, daily new COVID cases in Florida are up from 7,800 to over 12K on the 22nd. Reached 13.4K the day before. Yeah, just a coincidence.

I thought that it took 10-14 days for Covid to “ git go’in?”

So what about California where everything is shut down. And they have some of the highest in the nation. Explain that one for us? You can’t blame it on a RV show!

My observation when delivering a unit near LA. 200 ft by 80 ft lot in industrial park, 40 ft x 200 ft across the front was building with driveway entrance in middle. Covered car port in one end about 3 cars wide and trailers and motor homes (mostly old class C’s) parked only far enough apart to open the door. Literally hundreds of people outside and in the carport because it was too hot to be in the units. I wonder how many would survive if one came home with Covid. Not one of you (myself included) would even consider living there. Mostly if not all Spanish labor being taken advantage of. It was sobering and terrible to see (before Covid), it resembled a concentration camp.

By the way they were not allowed in the building.

Not sure that the story about cleaning up the Tennessee River made me feel good. Pretty sad actually
