I can SLIGHTLY relate. We used to have a popup. And we only went to one campground for a awhile. It wasn't all that but the campsites were great. Spread out in the woods and wasn't all that crowded anyway. You could camp all week and hardly see anyone anyone else other than driving down the road. Then when we upgraded to our SV305 and started going other places and realized not all are anywhere near as spacious. Was kind of a letdown. I don't like to be crowded when I'm camping. I don't want to sit at my table with the window open and be apart of my neighbors conversation.

It was a lifted gas cart with no back seat.

Ok. Someone probably complained for some B/S reason.

Some places and or people (namely my Dad) don't like anything that looks like it will tear up the ground. i.e. four wheelers, go carts, or golf carts with nobby wheels. This man has 70 acres and the only off road vehicle that goes on it is his tractor with turf saving tires. Won't let my brother ride his 4wheeler except on the driveway. Which is ok for the kids as his driveway is 5/8 of a mile long but sucks for adults.

The only reason someone would complain that I can think of is noise. Some of the carts people bring are for hunting. Some are monsters w/ lift kits, fog lights and truck horns. Fast too. Even so, like I said, I've never heard from anybody who was given a hard time.

Yep, my guess is someone complained for whatever reason........

I know of at least one campground that requires the operators of golf carts to be licensed drivers. Not a bad idea, as I've seen 8-year-old kids driving carts recklessly and nearly hitting folks walking their dogs. Insurance? Better have some if you hit me or my dog.

This day and time if it moves... Especially around other people.. You better make sure it's insured. People look for a reason to sue. I mean hell there is a lawyer commercial on tv every five minutes wanting you to sue someone else. I had a principal at my old high school that had his personal license plate read "i sue u". And he did... I know of 3 lawsuits he had during my 4 year stint.

Kamping Junkie, this is going to go off on a little bit of a different tangent and I apologize but what do you pull your 305 with? What kind of hitch are you using? Do you and get any swaying from the camper? Wandering from the tow vehicle?

You are right. In this litigious society there are people who make a living filing ridiculous lawsuits. On the other hand, there are people who behave so recklessly - or let their children do so - that their negligence causes legitimate damages to others. Most people I encounter in campgrounds are very responsible, which tends to eliminate such problems.

I pull with an 07 f250 6.0 diesel. Banks power system. I'm using a ez lite WDH and anti sway bar. I don't have any real sway. Other than a slight side shift when a 18 wheeler passes. It pulls great.
