« 2018 RV-Dreams Reunion Rally - Registration is Closing This Week | Main | My Take On Family Motor Coach Association Allowing Towable RV Owners »

Monday, January 29, 2018


You can't talk about solar, because an association complained? Is it hurting them, do they have some sort of regulation over the show promontor.

Just curious, Howard....what state complained?

I thought that Australia was the only country where caravan and holiday parks lobbied against free camping (boondocking). They don't understand that RVers don't want to be crammed in like sardines all the time.

I'm surprised that this attitude is apparently in your country as well.
Downunda - Melbourne Australia

The complaints weren't at one of our shows; they were at one of the other shows in Virginia. Apparently, the seminar space was out in the middle of the show across from some vendor booths. A couple of the "campground booths" complained, but I don't have first hand knowledge of who it was. They complained to the folks that we work with that put on the shows, and were basically told "tough" as those are seminars the attendees want. Someone went to the "higher ups" at Good Sam and the decision came from upper management.

We were told by our sources that it was the campground association that went up the ladder, but it's possible it was individual campgrounds - either way it's a silly attempt at "turf protection". With that said, my opinion is that this reflects more poorly on Good Sam than anyone.
