Results in this hell of a layout:
For longer rigs, it makes it a PITA to get into your spot because right where your tail would swing is a light pole. The roads in front aren't very spacious for having to maneuver around a rig.
The pull-thrus are the worst. Here's the good
one, on the end, all black top and facing the road:
The bad ones aren't even glorified parking spots:
Electric + water are often on the wrong side and sometimes for extra fun, significantly behind the camper.
Sewer is immediately under the camper about where my trailer axles are.
The only good about these places is Reggie, the maintenance man. He's been fantastic each time we've had to call him. Which is regularly- first when our spot was occupied by someone else and later when my electric didn't work because the previous tenant in the site behind me had rewired the pedestal to avoid his (annual) meter!
