Just want to be loved

This is going to be my analogy. Call it strange. Just trying to figure things out. I read on here everyday about wrong doings. Things not built or made right. Dealerships not doing right. Now the analogy part. IF? We are all a camping family. We the consumer are the children. The manufacturer being the the parents. Lets say the dealerships are the god parents. Then why as parents would you treat your kids this way. As kids we want to be treated with respect. We want or need guidance. I just think the parents could treat the kids better. I don't want to be a spoiled kid. I just think us kids want to be shown we are loved! I don't want to say abrused or neglected. But not feeling the love and attention I think we deserve. We all want to be loved. I don't think we want to be the favorite child. I definitely don't think we want to be the squeaky wheel child. But we are made to be. I just want mom and dad to treat us the same. AND BE A LOVING FAMILY!!!! I don't think that is too much to ask for.

How's the old saying go "Don't ever loan money to a friend or family you want to keep as a friend or family"!

The RV industry is a money business, not family..... so there's really no intimacy.

Unless something affects the money side of it, it's going to be hard to get any changes out of it.

But they do show us love with all the FROG rallies they sponsor and everything they do at the factory rally. I think your analogy using family would be more appropriate to say the parents had no prenatal care and picked a bad babysitter with the dealership but then try to make amends sporadically.

While talking about dealing with teenagers I heard a parent say....."Grandkids are God's little rewards for not killing your own."
