I'll make sure we never get a campsite next to each other when the temps all night are below freezing...I've been told more than once that my old DMAX sounds like a jet plane sitting on the tarmac when it's in high idle mode

When I start my Dmax with the remote start, I have to look outside to see if parking lights are on so I know it started. It's only 15 ft away from the living room window. I could always hear my gasser out there running.

I know my ol' PSD sounds like that when the EBPV closes up on a cold winter warm up... Especially with the 4" turbo back. I love my old truck

Campground courtesy is not cutting thru people's site - I go from nice to not so nice in 3.5 seconds.

Lack of courtesy extends to people who allow their "friendly" dog off leash, which seem to want to gravitate to my quiet crated Bullmastiffs...who go from mellow to not so mellow in 3.5 seconds. Love it (not) when owner comes over to quickly get their dog and say "oh your dog's aren't friendly". Ha. My dogs are socialized and hit the dog shows & used to being on stage - but when we are camping, we are on break from forced socializing.

Loud drunk people who think they are funny or cool. Stay in their area and leave me out of their conversations or revelry. We are not interested nor do we care what they are doing as long as it's on their site, keep their comments to themselves and they shut up at quiet hours.

Loud RVS are the least of my annoyances. The owners are aware they are loud and usually apologize when they get up early to run them. They have every right to be there too...As long as quiet hrs with generators are observed, I am rarely a snot.

I do prefer not to be around little kids. My dogs seem to attract them & I have babysat on more than one occasion when parents were not aware their toddler made it to my site to see the doggies. Of course that meant my dogs are put back in their crate so the doggie won't knock the kid down with a tail wag or bruise them if they stepped on the toddlers foot. Once or twice is ok - but an entire weekend of the parent assuming I am looking out for their kid is bothersome and I get no relaxation. Sometimes I feel like I should leave my dogs home, but they are so easy to hang with.

Give me a diesel pusher any day over the other things. At least it's predictable and usually temporary moments in a day. LoL

I've been annoyed way more times by people, dogs or kids than I have been by vehicles. Like handbuilder just said, the vehicle noise is temporary. The other stuff can annoy you the entire stay.
