Thanks for sharing! Enlightening... however we are one of those consumers that have a relatively new (2014) trailer...and have had nothing but problems with it form day one... and we use it almost EVERY weekend.
We have spent a lot of our own money trying to get it to stop leaking every time it rains... this SOB will rot into the ground before we ever get it fixed!! NEVER AGAIN! This is our last RV... when it dies.. that's it...NO MORE!

Sounds like the author of the RV series is a Thor owner. Been there, done that......(7 trips to the repair shop in 18 months of ownership!)
Thank God for our well built Forest River Berkshire! We have seen the promise land! RVing is fun once again!!!

X2 I am completely blown away at the difference between a Berkshire and our previous 5er - I had NO idea. Sorry if this offends some but it is what it is.

Oh, you know what goes here...

IMO,

This installment pushes the envelope.

The author has made some good points mixed in with many personal perspectives. The articles are not leading to enlightened discussion but to divisive points.

Pay parks? People vote with their feet. They will stop going there if it is bad.

State parks, I am in Illinois , they do the best they can with what they have. I know several camp hosts and yes, a couple of them will knock on your door, others will not. None I have seen get offensive. Pay your bill as prescribed in the park rules on time.

I am sure everyone has seen over-nighters cruze in late and bug out early, so not to pay. Those are the leaches.

Just a knee-jerk response...

RV Industry Death Spiral – Part 5: Campgrounds losing capacity | RV Daily Report

This guy isn't even close as to whats going on with RV parks , maybe 10 or 15 yrs ago what he said may have fit but not now . More and more campgrounds are being built , more spots ADDED to existing . Having spent two summers in yellowstone one of the rv capitals in the summer there are more spots available this yr then last and there will be even more next yr . lots of the forest service campgrounds outside of the park almost always have spots available first come first serve . Now in Florida you see tons of established campgrounds with the seasonal sites . there are still plenty available . i had no issues getting into a place last winter and see no issues this yr . some fill up others don't .

the rv indrustry has a long way to go with product and quality . the tools are there for them to get it right . it's just getting them to do it . people over profit .
