[UPDATE: Scores of RVers fought back and won. The state of Maine backed down. Read the whole RVs in Maine story here.]
For the RVers out there, did you know that Maine legislators want to ban overnight RV parking in parking lots — in any public parking lot in the state, even if the owners welcome RVs. The fine could be $100.
From the RV Travel.com story:
The fact is, most RVers, me included, don’t need hookups all the time. We don’t need to pay $30 for an RV park if we just want to pull off somewhere and nod off for awhile. Personally, on a typical RV trip, I stay in an RV park or public campground five nights out of seven. If I find a good place to stay for free, I stay. I like saving money. Sometimes I don’t feel like driving 20 miles out of my way to find an RV park and then discover it’s a dump or ten yards from the main line of the Santa Fe.
