Letter to the editor: RVers: Who are those guys?

Posted: Thursday, Aug 29th, 2013

RVers are people who have worked hard their whole lives and have saved enough money to buy a RV. They drive a motor home, pull a 5th wheel or a travel trailer.

RVers have been blessed with good health and are enjoying their retirement.

If there is a club house at the RV Park, theyíre apt to party hearty - usually playing cards or dancing to country western music way in to 9 p.m. They may be up early, 8 a.m., to walk their dogs. There is an understood rule that RVers donít leave the park before 7 a.m. and they try to get to their destination before 9 p.m. to get set-up. If they must leave early, they are as quiet as possible so they donít disturb their fellow RVers.

RV parks have electrical hookups so RVers donít run their generators.

Even though they have their kitchens with them, they still like to eat out. They also buy essentials like food, fuel, clothes and propane. RVers enjoy shopping for themselves and buying gifts for friends and family. They support local churches and businesses.

RVers are laid back, friendly, helpful, conscientious, fun, energetic people.

An RV park in the community is a definite asset. RVers are good neighbors. They add maturity, respect and diversity to the community and they spend money.
