I agree that they should not be able to do that unless they let you know up front that you could be bumped for a longer-term tenant. Even so, my late husband and I wintered in AZ on an annual basis for about ten years. After he passed away I moved to AZ permanently. Except in the summer, the desert is the perfect place to be, IMO.

2 years ago we stayed at Tombstone Territories RV park. A few weeks earlier we and another couple visited the park, picked out the spots we wanted, and went to the office to book the reservation. My receipt for the reservation had the space number printed on it. Yes, I paid a deposit.

Fast forward to the arrival day and I found an Allegro Bus in my space. The office told me the Bus wanted that space so they moved me to another part of the park. The office refused to move the Bus and my paid deposit for that space fell on deaf ears. I complained (an understatement) and the office got me at least back in the original row with our friends.

Why do you suppose an Allegro Bus was given priority over my 5th wheel toy hauler? We haven't been back to that park.

We've visited a number of parks where the "fine print" mentioned that reserved site locations are not guaranteed. Three years in a row at one park, we were relocated from the site we had reserved to a different site in favor of an incoming long term lessee. Their park, their rules... Now we favor state and national parks, so it's only been an issue once. And that one was due to an ongoing crime scene on the site we reserved. The park went out of their way to accommodate us, even putting us on a vacant site in their "volunteer village" for a few days until our site was available.

I agree with the others-- please let us all know the name of the park to prevent possible issues with our reservations.

My "permanent" home in a campground, it's easy, any site that someone wants to make annual, take precedence over a seasonal or even temp site. They will work with people, but bottom line, annual memberships keep the doors open.

A domestic dispute apparently led to a murder/suicide and a fire. Since it was an active crime scene, the remains of the burned motorhome couldn't be removed until the police and fire investigators released it. Add another couple of days to remove the debris and replace the removed gravel, and replace the burned power stanchion, melted water line, and sewer hookup. The park folks were still trimming burned shrubbery when we were allowed on the site.

Did you pay in advance for this site? You should tell us the park.
