I mainly use negative reviews whether they be for a park or a product to see if people are complaining about the same things. If there are a number of negative reviews that all complain about the same thing, I give more weight to them. If the reviews are just the "This park sucks" type, I generally dismiss those unless that is the prevailing review.

I always get a kick out of reviews about parks that complain about the bugs. Sure, the bugs might have been bad the day that they were there. Then a few days later they might have been no bugs at all. Their bugs, this is just how they are.

If you happen to be there after a recent rain the bugs will be worse. If you are there during a dry spell the bugs will not be as bad.

You can't review the bugs after a single trip.

Now, do any of you want to make some money ? I have a idea for a money making idea ....Bug Reports !!! First learn about the life cycle of bugs (specifically mosquitoes for example ). Then using modern computer technology,, and the local rain reports,, you should be able to build "Bug Computer Models" that will predict the amount of bugs in a certain area over a certain length of time. Then, giving time ,you could add in bug reports from people you get to volunteer (or pay a few bucks) that catch bugs in their back yards. With each passing year the computer would learn from past reports and get better and better at predicting.

Sure wish I was smart and knew things about computers. If any of you want to work with me I seriously believe that we can do it.

My favorite review. Company had 9 "customer" reviews. Stupidly, they used their real names in the reviews. 8 of the reviews worked for the company, who published the list of their 15(?) employees
I assume the "ninth" person did not give a good enough review and was fired [emoticon]

I leave very few reviews of anything anymore. If I do it's one of those store surveys and I just say they are the nicest person and any other nice stuff I make up. I try to add some funny into it. As far as camping reviews I've seen people leave GLOWING reviews about a nice boondocking site. Well it's not nice anymore.

You're going to see more and more of these types of reviews as the flood of new and inexperienced RV owners hit the parks. Things aren't going to be as rosy as the RV salesman told them it was going to be and the bad reviews will roll in. We just read between the lines and try to find the appropriate information that actually makes sense and ignore the rest. Reviews can still be used to determine the right choice, it just takes a little more work. Chuck

I have read reports of record sales of RVs in the last few months.
Have also seen reports 32% of households missed July housing rent or mortgage.
I think we need to face the fact many of the RV sold will not be used for recreation. CGs will be the new Hovervilles

I'm thinking the people buying brand new RVs are not the same people that are missing their mortgage payments. I'm in some local camping Facebook groups and the people who are newbies there are ones who normally vacation differently... going to Disney, going on cruises, etc. They all still have their jobs and some even have extra money because of the way those stimulus checks were sent out... even people who didn't need it, got one.

I mostly agree with you.

But, in some ways I am one of those people that got a stimulus check that really didn't need it. The check I got was for 1200 bucks. Not going to purchase a very good RV with that. I don't think the stimulus checks are part of the thing.

The people vacation differently is part of it though.

I wonder in a few years if the market might be full of slightly used RV's ?
