Why do a lot of reviewers complain about "Permanent Guests"? I think this is just pure snobbery!!!
I have permanents who are very good guests,more so than short term guests, i.e. School Teachers, College Professors, Policemen, Senators & Congressmen, just to name a few. The permanents are always very good neighbors who clean up after their dogs(pets) & keep there sites very nice, will maintain their own yards & enjoy being able to add their own beautiful landscaping, where the short term guests let their children & pets destroy trees & other landscaping & think it's my responsibility to clean up after them & their pets. I screen my permanents very carefully, I do not rent permanent space to anyone I think may be a problem to me or other guests! Unfortunately I would go bankrupt soon if I only rented to short term campers, especially in this economy! I would like to know how other RV Park & Campground Owners feel about complaints about "Permanent Guest"! cool.gif

I'm only speaking for myself, but I've done sixty-some-odd reviews and have only complained about "permanents" once and that was in a park that had trailers in it that looked like they just might have dead bodies in them...and the live bodies that were hanging around the trailers were not anybody I cared to be within a mile of. It wasn't their "permanence" I was unhappy with; it was their alcohol and drug consumption and the volume and late hours at which they enjoyed the afore-mentioned consumables. I stayed in another park that had the most gawd-awful assembly of permanent trailers (including one made out of part of a van and one that consisted of an old pickup camper sitting on a flat bed truck which also had a 'guest house' that was a pickup cap topper sitting on the same flatbed) and I had absolutely no problem with that as the residents were quiet and friendly and kept their sites clean. I personally don't feel that that reporting a park is "mostly permanents" or "lots of seasonals" is necessarily a criticism. It just explains the "nature" of the park. I've found that a park with a lot of "permanents" tends to be quieter than a park filled with weekend partiers. I've never met any unfriendliness or hostility from permanents. On the contrary, I've found that "permanents" tend to be friendlier than my fellow "passers-thru". I'm glad to know that you carefully pick your permanent residents; I'd be glad to stay in your park. However, many rv park owners aren't that careful.
