Next, Kathy lists the upcoming RV shows for the rest of March, and there are many.

Our friend Greg Gerber, editor of the RV Daily Report and Lets RV newsletters recently posted a question on several popular RV groups on Facebook. He asked people to provide examples of horrible campground etiquette, or those obnoxious actions of others that can take the fun out of RVing.

I read the top 20 examples of Bad Campground Behavior along with many of the runner-ups. Some are funny, some are sad, and some are just downright dangerous. I hope we all take away some better understanding of how to better enjoy our campground experience.
