b) I don't want to camp next to someone with a RV that cost more then(sic) most houses, who has one of those annoying little ankle biter dogs, and is playing load opera music all night long. People like that are jerks.
a) well, that seems to be in vogue now.
b) I have never, ever heard someone playing opera music all night long, but I've heard enough '50s country music to make me gag. Jerks are everywhere.

Some of you people act as if you don't like the neighbors you must stay there and take it.

Moderators - unfortunately might be time to shut this one down. There are jerks across the spectrum in America, just like there are good, kind people across the spectrum. I would love our country to be kinder and more empathetic, but don’t think we should tolerate intolerance. People that “love to piss others off” are hurting our country regardless of where they are on the socioeconomic ladder.

Yep, this thread was bad from the get go. However, more sympathetic posts than usual for nasty General RVing Issues threads. There's hope.

If these people are complying with all the campground rules and regs, they have every right to have a space and occupy it UNDER THE RULES. Age of their rig, beauty or ugly, makes absolutely no difference other than it offends your finer sensibilities. On the other hand, if they are not paying their rent, violating campground rules or local zoning or health department ordinances, you have every right to be upset. The rules are for everyone and should be applied equally, regardless of their appearance or the age of their rig. If the rules are not being applied equally, you have the option to move or to make your displeasure known to the owners/managers.

Sorry, not trying to turn this political with my last post...but...trying to get each of us to look at ourselves in the mirror and try to help advocate for improvement for this segment of our population instead of just trying to push them into a corner we don’t have to see...
With the economy the way it is, it is highly likely the problems these people have run deeper than just offering a helping hand. Does anyone actually know people who are at a minimum high school educated and physically capable who cannot find employment? The vast majority of homeless have issues that defy solutions. Mental illness and substance abuse is the underlying causation of homelessness. Treatment options exist, yet most of the homeless either unwilling or unable to seek out and accept that treatment. Our society does not, and perhaps should not, allow for the forced incarceration of these people into institutions and treatment facilities keeping them there until they can rejoin productive society. If anyone has an answer, I am sure there are plenty of people willing to listen and implement a truly workable program.

X3. We certainly have enough hate, intolerance and lack of respect in this country these days.

X2. Too many jobs don't pay enough to pay all the bills as well as the sky-rocketing rent and housing costs.
