    We would have parked as you described. It would annoy us if someone parked up right on our bumper when there is lots of space. And then there’d have been a thread about that!
    BUT if I’d seen trucks coming in and not able to park, we’d have shuffled up to make space.

    Having spent years sleeping in laybys while lorry driving I really can't imagine anyone doing it for pleasure, unless it's some form of fetish. Noisy, smelly and with rats running around. There are thousands of places to overnight, often not far from the main trunk roads which must be better than that.

    Since posting on here I have been surprised at the amount of self criticism.
    Some always seem to point out our deficiencies, some of which are borne out of ignorance, or simply a lack of facilities. Whilst I do find it irrational and irritating at times, it does highlight that we set a high standard for what we do, and that is laudable.

    I remember one poster posting a photograph of a wild camper dumping his grey waste, with their outlet left open. Surely the benefit of the doubt could have been applied, I have accidentally forgot to close my valve before taking off. Generally speaking we are a considerate bunch, albeit with one or two who simply don’t care. We have to remember that one in five Motorhomes are hired, and many of those using them are genuinely ignorant of our accepted behaviour.
    If we all agreed there would be no discussion, and it would be a dull boring world.

    I don't usually use lay-bys but this particular one is always clean and tidy,with picnic tables and plenty of space for the dog to run around,also it's not always simple to find a quieter spot when I'm in a truck.

    But I doubt it if you will see any comments on other types of forums.
    This highlights to me that this concern is borne from the fact that we set better standards, and become frustrated and angry when some fall below a certain standard.
    In his particular case I'm singling out motorhomers simply because we are overnighting whereas cars usually only stop for brief periods.

    Asterix no problem, and your post shows that you are a considerate person, we need more like you.

    I am trying to point out that we are very much into self criticism, which has its place.

    But I am new to this site and Motorhoming, I just find this surprising.

    Obviously we are treated like nuisances by many, possibly this is what makes us this way.
    If we all agreed there would be no discussion, and it would be a dull boring world.

    I agree,but I think we need to go above and beyond what is normal for most road users,we are often lumped together with the "other" travelling community that really share nothing in common with us, therefore it's down to us to make that distinction.

    Could not agree more.

    Can I qualify that by stating that some of the poor behaviour is through ignorance, and some through lack of proper facilities.

    so we have posts that complain that motorhomers don't park close together in a parking area
    and we have posts that complain that motorhomers part too close together in a parking area

    can't win either way
