When I owned a tent trailer and I ended up near a big luxury motorhome, I always thought I was smarter because we were both in the same place and it cost me a whole lot less.

If I get the cold shoulder I just waite till they bring little Fluffy out for a walk and they just scatter like flies! Tunce wouldn't bother them but they don't waite around to find out. I'm more than happy to help anyone any hour of the day or night and I carry extra tools and parts for plumbing and electric just in case.

No matter what size rig we've had, we've always associated with everybody, no matter what they were in. Sometimes that guy in the popup knows more than that guy in the bus, and the other way around. I've been helped by others with small rigs, and I've helped people with larger busses. I will tell you, I feel more comfortable in the rig we're in now. Having the class A was very nice, but I noticed in some areas, the people with towables didn't associate with us as much.

Hey people, no matter what ride we're in, we're just backwoods rednecks that love to RV. If you don't talk to me, I'll still talk to you.

My wife and I toured to Whitehorse, Yukon in 2013 and to Yellowknife, NWT this past summer. We pretty much had the smallest TT in most of the CGs we stayed in.

We fulltime in a Seismic with a family of six. I look at some of those smaller units and think: "the places I could go with that!" I like the unit we have, but small and nimble can count for a lot. As long as it's fun, it's good. See you down the road.

We started camping in a tent, then moved up to a popup, then to a truck slide in and now we just purchased a Jayco travel trailer and looking forward to spring. With that said, you have all types of people everywhere. I must say that campers are some of the most friendly and helpful folks I've ever met..

I always enjoy the folks pointing to my meek Ford Ranger 4x4 pulling our hybrid at the campsites. It starts a conversation, and we make new friends!

One of our first outings in the X23B was to a nice KOA park that was just teeming with large TT's, 5th's and MH's. There was a Casita but he left the next morning and I noted we were then the smallest in the park. In the mornings I felt like a field mouse that woke up to find himself in a herd of buffalo.

I think nearly all started smaller or cheaper. God bless that person if their first setup was a diesel pusher, however we've found even with our first 23' TT and a Toyota Tacoma TV that nearly all are friendly and supportive. Just like in society there will be a few unfriendlies and idiots no matter where you go.
