I wouldn't say a word. How could the owner not know? I'd bet he knows and could care less? Not his fault his rig will not fit in the site. A moron.

It looks like he'll have the whole loop lit up like Las Vegas come this evening with those perty blue lights he has on at noon, so cool.

If anything ask him if he has one of those patio kits for the ramp door. He should deploy that too.

One of those places that say they are big rig friendly, then you get there and it's NOT!

Wait till he drops the ramp and parks the pair of Harleys behind it.

The guy may not have seen it from where you did. If it were me I would politely point it out to them. I can see a rig comming in at night and catching that corner.

This is what "can" happen when you have an electric awning.

5 will get you ten here is what happened.

They pull into a campground and make sure they are clearly within their site. They get all set up with water and electricity and all of that and they get into their trailer and someone pushes the button for the awning. The awning pops out and wala; instant problems! They don't even know they have a problem because they are in their trailer pushing buttons.

That's one thing I don't like about this auto stuff. If you don't double check things you can get into trouble.

For the folks saying I should have stopped, I would have but we were short on time with dinner reservations and no one was outside. Every other time I've driven past (maybe 2 times), it's been in.

The awning has been out and in a few times. My wife said a motorhome had to drive on the grass to the right to get around it.
