I am a full-time R.V.'er who has submitted reviews to this wonderful website for several months now. I really appreciate the people who work to keep this service available for all of us.
Being a full-timer, I usually try to stay in a certain part of the country for several months at a time. This gives me an opportunity to adequately investigate and explore all the sights and attractions before moving on to the next location.
Naturally, that means that for the most part, I am renting the site for at least a month at a time.
When reserving a site in advance of a move, I usually locate the R.V. parks via the internet and then call them to check on availability. I carefully check their website, and then ask pertinent questions of the person taking the reservation before confirming. These questions are aimed at the condition and cleanliness of the park, specifically the showers and restrooms. I have also asked certain questions regarding the noise levels of such things as trains, airplanes, and freeways, etc. Upon receiving their glowing responses to my questions, I am generally required to confirm the reservation with a credit card number.
Upon arriving at the park, I most often find it to be entirely different, at times unrecognizable from what is pictured on the website. And, worse still, few if any of the answers that I got to my questions were true!
But what was true was the huge lettered sign above the desk stating, "No Refunds!"
So, now I am stuck at this campground for at least a month unless I want to lose the money drawn from my credit card.
My question is this: What gives the R.V. park the authority to rip people off simply by posting a sign?
I have inquired of several law offices in several different states without an answer. Can someone on this website please tell me?
