Weekenders are always good entertainment for us seasonal folks.
Watching them trying to back in their rigs and the arguing while doing so.


Struggling with the chairs setup would be priceless.

well i always put my chairs w/back to the rv. Way i see it is that, facing camper = don't want to be annoyed. Outward facing open to a quick hello or walk over. Or as some see it Sociable or Non. But like others said, watching the sites/aka ppl is great entertainment . It's like Wally World only sitting down instead of strolling the isles.

It's important to orient your chair so you are staring at the RV next to you. Even more important that you gaze at the windows. You won't be able to see anything, because the windows are tinted or blinds are down, but if anyone is looking back at you from within the RV, it creates a sense of anxiety for anyone hyper sensitive to 'privacy', as they think you can see them.


This is the result of studying sociology in college. I learned to do fun things to mess with people's minds, like enter a crowded elevator, and remain facing everyone, not turning around and facing the door like everyone does.

I'd prefer the guy who stands facing everyone in the elevator to the one in the back facing front that thinks it's hilarious to pass gas as soon as the door closes. Especially on one of those express elevators that takes you from ground level to another lobby 50 floors up.

I like to face the best view. Sometimes that's the Beaver coach next door!

I've done the elevator thing many, many times. I've even done my favorite conversation starter with, "I've brought you all together today to discuss" or a "shall we all bow our heads in prayer" using my best pastors voice. Breaks the ice every time.

I do understand if your neighbor is less than 10 feet and you want to give them some privacy.

So which way do you set up camp, chairs facing the RV or Facing out?
We always make a circle around the power pedestal so we can worship the surge protector!

Well, if I have a campfire, not close. Otherwise, under the awning.
