What a world it is! It certainly made me appreciate some progress taking placing in the RV industry.
I spoke to an older generation RVer who was on their maiden vogage with their loooonnnnng trailer. There were all bushy-tailed and bright-eyed about living the dream.
He was from Texas, where his rig might have been a good fit. There were three sites (out of 25) in this campground where his rig would have fit. But of course, they were filled. But he still felt optimistic. After all, they were finally living the dream.
I don't know where they ended up camping for the night. He mentioned that they were now on their way to Moab. Talk about leaving the fry pan for the fire!
It was reminiscent of Lucille Ball in "The Long, Long Trailer." I got a kick out of the conversation.
In contrast, consider the younger generation in their vans: they can actually fit in campgrounds or parking lots. They are wise to give up on the long RVs of the old generation. Parking lot camping isn't exactly 'living the dream,' but at least it will get you through the night. A real campground is not only expensive, but it is filled. One must stay flexible.
