We got a call from the RV park manager today... we have to move our cargo trailer. Let me state this publicly: Cotton Lane RV and Golf Resort discriminates against cargo trailer enabled Americans. It isn't bad enough that we have to pay an extra fee on toll roads or when transiting by ferry. Can you imagine in this day and age, an RV park that won't allow you to bring your stuff with you as you RV across this great country of ours?
For the record, we have run into this situation with this particular park before. We have stayed in other RV parks because of this asinine policy of theirs. That's right - they would rather loose the income than allow a nice-looking, color-matched cargo trailer to remain with the RV. We read through their new rules book. Yes, they have a rules book. It doesn't say ANYTHING in there about not allowing a cargo trailer. I thought they may have come to their senses. I would be mistaken. They continue their bigoted anti-cargo-trailer policy.
What's the big deal? Thanks for asking. We like to have our scooters with us. The cargo trailer is how we haul them. It is also their "garage" when we are in an RV park for a while. No, this park would rather we leave our stuff out in the weather than have them safely put away. Oh, you can put up a crappy shed. Or, have an RV with body damage and ugly faded gelcoat. (We have that right behind us.) Some parks have a policy about not allowing RVs older than 10 years, unless approved by the management. No sign of that here. We could put out all manner of ratty camp chairs, dog pens, or home-made yard decorations... just don't even think of bringing an attractive cargo trailer in here!
So, we had to borrow a truck (thanks to one of Steph's friends) and move the cargo trailer into a storage lot (for more $$). The weather is supposed to be crappy for the next week or so, so we put the scooters in Steph and Dan's garage. For now, if we want to go for a ride, we have to drive the car to their place to get the scoots. Yeah, a first world problem... just one that makes absolutely no sense. Thus, I will post about it here. And complain on Trip Advisor. And give the park a low rating on the various campground review sites.
Joan thought they may have turned over a new leaf, since the crappy old manager is now gone. Nope.
Imagine, having to put those sweet scooters outside during these cold desert nights. Almost inhumane, huh? Well, some people don't care about doing what's right... they just want to make up rules that benefit NO ONE. And discriminate against the cargo trailer enabled. Right here in the good ol' US of A. (Cue the flag unfurling and the marching band music!)
