Exclamation Fulltiming Pet Peeves

I know we're not the only ones with fulltiming or rving pet peeves.


  • The folks who like to pull right up next to you when the RV park is empty. I promise we like people and enjoy meeting new folks. However, no we do not want to peek out our kitchen window and see a full moon! Unless of course it's actually dark outside. Why must you park right next door if you have 35+ other spots to choose from?

  • RV park grounds keepers who insist on firing up the lawn mowers or weed whackers at the crack of dawn and want to mow or weed whack in our space when they have many many acres that they could've mowed or weeded first!

  • Unexpected company! If it's three in the morning and it's not an emergency then don't even think about coming and ringing our door bell or knocking on our door loud and obnoxious waking us up and the whole RV Park trying to make friends. We will never be friends!

  • The borrower who barrows and never brings item back. Only way you get it back, (if you get it back) is to go fetch it yourself.



What annoys you?

Thumbs down

Drives me crazy when there is

  • Loud Music especially if it includes a obnoxious crowd.
  • People who think they own the place and they want to come up and tell you that you're doing something wrong or that you need to do this or that.
  • Aggressive dogs off a leash. I don't mind dogs but I don't need someones aggressive dog coming up to our coach barking and being aggressive or pissing on my tires!

How about the Rude ones that open their Slide(s) into my space, I call them Sliders.

I have found a way to keep the "Sliders" at bay. I set up an Easy up Framework at the Pedestal, really is amazing how that keeps most people away!

RV Parks that want extra $$ for Dogs! We were thinking about stopping at Ventura RV Resort but wait $4.00 per Night per Dog! No way

When traveling and leaving enough room to stop but they have to cut me off and hop in my lane!

Matt, where the heck are you? We have been to Arizona numerous times and you are nowhere to be found. I am starting to wonder if you are a figment!!!!!!

People who have yard ornaments and I'm not talking about just one little cute flag. Leave the fake flowers for the grave yard people!

One of my traveling pet peeves is that most (Welcome Centers) are only only open during business hours. From like 8:00am - 5:00pm. I don't expect them to be open say 24hrs a day but a little later would be nice. Every time we are on the road. We stop and the Welcome Centers are always closed.

Barking dogs that won't shut up! (Please don't get me wrong I love dogs, but please for the love of God don't let your dog bark all hours of the day & night) Have some courtesy for others.

Not a full timer but I have a pet peeve. Gross stinky dirty bathrooms without any windows or some sort of ventilation.

Something else that bothers me is when people cut through our spot to save them from walking a few feet.

People who think just because you have a luxury coach that at one point and time sold for a million + dollars that you are a stuck up prick and your goal in life is to impress everyone. News flash! Not here to impress anyone. Just like to travel for business in comfort & luxury, sorry if that's a crime to you. It has been said I'm one of the most down to earth guys around. I will talk to almost anyone it doesn't matter who you are or what you own. If you're parked next to me say, Hello! I don't bite.
