The type of neighbors one gets while camping definitely varies by campground. In a campground with cement parking pads, electric, water and pump out facilities, there's the RV crowd. They all look pretty much alike -nice newer trailers and motor homes. Our painted up ambulance/RV conversion pulling a homebuilt boat sticks out.
In more primitive places we have a different crowd. That's where we meet people with converted short buses, off-road teardrop trailers, and raggity old tents. We stick out there too, but that's because we stick out pretty much anywhere. (maybe we could blend in at Burning Man) We are noticeable, but we fit in better.
The folks vary too. The RV crowd are mostly older, retired couples. The more primitive campgrounds have more younger people, lot's of single guys. On the weekends there there are families with young kids.
One good thing is that we've met nice folks in both sorts of places.
There are places that flat out will not allow our old van. It's too old and too non conventional. Fortunately, they are not the sort of places we'd want to stay anyway.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
