We are at a state park in the Florida Panhandle. There are only 30 sites on a single loop, but there are at least five motor homes and a huge fiver parked comfortably. In comes Golith MH w/ toad, having difficulty navigating the turns. They found their site but it was "too small", "hard to get into", and "the hookups are on the wrong side". Reserve America gives all the details on this site including size and that it is a "back in site". They finally get it parked but complained because their toad had to go in overflow parking. Then the lady said, "There are thousands of acres of state park and national forest around here, I don't' know why they can't make the campsites bigger". Hello! Did somebody put a gun to her head and tell her to buy that rig? Is the mission of the park service to provide a place for her to park it? My husband had to gently lead me away. Guess I am getting old and cranky. lizzie

No, just don't let it get to you. Some people have to have the biggest or badest thing alive. They also don't understand how to do math. If a site says 35' max then that 45' rig may not fit. Just go back to your site, sit down, have an adult beverage, and relax.

I have come to realize that some people are just different than ME and I have come to realize that is just fine.

If this is all you have to rant about then your life must be pretty good right now.
Forget about it. It really doesn't seem like that big of a deal, at least to me. But, like I said, I realize that I am different sometimes.

Yes...hadn't you heard?

It's probably a good thing your site didn't look good to them, cause they're so "entitled" that they very likely would have "requested" that you swap!

You can't control others, but you sure can get a laugh and free entertainment or you can let them mess up your day, it's your choise.

Oh, yeah! DW & I canoe and watching people launch their boats IS a spectator event! We watched one guy launch, get whole family on board, and proceed to break out lunch while in the ramp!

But to the topic at hand, the new TT is a tad over 26'. I didn't want to go over 28' because it would limit us on our some of our favorite campsites.
