The flower boxes are 1 foot off the road??? I would contact your city/town/municipality public works department to determine the zoning/ordinance restrictions for installing structures near the roadway. In most cases, the roadway does not "end" at the edge of the road or just beyond the shoulder area. Usually, the width of a roadway is measuring X feet from the centerline, perpendicular to the direction of traffic. My guess is that your neighbor has illegally installed her flower boxes in the roadway, and if my assumption is correct, I would ask her to remove them due to the local ordinances, and failing that, get your local officials involved. I would check into this before the purchasing any equipment.

WIBadger, this is a campground, not a residential area. Not sure the city has any jurisdiction over the CG.

That being said, I cannot believe you have to spend that type of coin for a powered wagon. It just seems that some people have no consideration for others, especially at a CG with 50 foot plus rigs using the roads at all times. If nothing can be done to resolve your situation where your site currently is, are there other sites available that you can move to ??

Sorry for situation. It definitely sounds like a doozy.

Is changing seasonal sites an option? May be the lowest cost and easiest solution.

First thing would be to talk to the neighbor and explain the problem. If that doesn't work I would hook a tow chain to the most offending flower box and place it somewhere far away. (best done with no witness)

I have been in a situation where I had to pull ahead without turning, unhook, reposition the truck, and hook up again and start my turn. Will this work?

Is this a private CG? I would complain to whomever is running the CG. Who knows, maybe your neighbor will next install a fence between the road and her boxes (what's to stop her from doing so???). IMHO, you need to shut this down. Unfortunately, sometimes you gotta fight for what's right (ie, the ability to enter and exit your site without damaging your TV or the property of another). Good luck.

If they put you in a spot the campground should expect you to be able to get in and out of it. If the only way in/out is to take out a few flowers then "goodbye flowers". I would say sorry to the flower lady but I have to have some room to move.

A 35 foot trailer with a garden tractor or a quad? Surely you can't be serious, Sorry I called you Shirley.
