As most RVers know, not all RVs are completely self-contained. Some have bathroom facilities inside the rig, while some camper or trailer setups don’t have bathrooms or indoor kitchens. Staff interactions or enforcement issues with non-RV/trailer campers would put both staff and the public at risk.
Additionally, self-contained RVs require dump stations, which are currently closed. When they reopen, there will be a ramp-up period so they can be checked and adequately staffed.
Even though many RVers live in self-contained motorhomes, parks in some jurisdictions must provide serviceable restroom facilities in their campgrounds, no matter the clientele or “camping” equipment used.
Allowing one type of camping – or one type of RV camping - over another would require higher than normal staffing at a time when our staff is stretched thin.
Finally, we want each stage of reopening to reflect our commitment to access and equity. When campgrounds reopen, they should reopen to the broadest range of visitors possible.
