Where he is parked in a truck stop with quite a few spots left, he is in the way.

Must have no clue how much room is needed around turns, or doesn't care.

I agree with Don I think most of these folks don't have the situational awareness we do. When you've never driven such a thing in your life not too surprised.

I’ve seen truckers do the same or worse. Not excusing the guy, but it ain’t just recreational drivers.

If you've ever driven anything like that with a little short trailer behind it, you'd realize it's a nightmare to back into a spot. You can't see the trailer and it reacts really fast. I think he's way better off where he is than hitting my truck while he's trying to back in. If he goes nose in with that rig, he will never get it out without the people on either side having to move.

Of course he could go to one of those nice RV parks and spend the night. smile.gif

It's not just them in truck stops it is what those clowns do at rest areas too... not just talking about the recreational vehicles, talking about those that are pulling small trailers, boats Etc. Some of them sleep in their cars and Pickups and use the truck area for their parking. Why don't they just double-park in the car area? Those . areas are deserted at night. And then we can't find anywhere to park in our area. Not kidding you one night pulled into a rest area and there was only one lane for trucks to park on both sides and it was all taken up by RVs some of them small ones and people pulling trailers. The car area was empty. Next rest area 70 miles lol

Currently parked for the night at a TA in Kingman Arizona and a pickup with a camper is parked next to me. I'm in Arizona and there are camping sites everywhere and the Walmart right down the road. This cheap ass is parked at a Truck Stop drivers who do this for a living don't have anywhere to park tonight because of this sob. I think truck stop should ban them. Just my two cents for the night.

First, this guy was gone within an hour. Second, he was sitting in the driver's seat seeing that he was in the way. Third, at the time there were many spots, some two or three in a row. He really had no good excuse.

As far as the guys pulling one RV or boat, may be a "hot shot" delivering it. I hate when they are small enough to fit in car parking and take a truck spot. I also hate when small box trucks take one of our spots. However, I get a spot every night. I always know where, I'm sleeping.
