I didn't know that I had a choice!
Owning an egg is an open invitation to join with others in the joy of Trailering . In the twenty years that we have owned it we have only been shunned by another owner one time and we excused ourselves and respected their choice for privacy. We have even been asked for a tour while signing in and then been escorted to our site only To spend an hour or so discussing the differences between years and brands. It has been the best social investment as a way to enjoy camping with strangers ever.
Now strangers no more!

I voted wave although I do like to talk fiberglass, heck I will even talk stickie, tent, hammock, etc. if it looks interesting. You can get a feel for people pretty quick and I want to respect folks and look for the "signs" that they want to converse. Usually my dog breaks the ice and is the first topic of conversation followed by trailer/camping.

Eggs are fairly rare in my travels. Finding another Oliver owner would be like stumbling across a unicorn!

I wave at anyone I see in an RV, but if it's another fiberglass I'll usually make it a point to stop by and say hello. I've never been rebuffed and have made a few friends that way.

I voted "wave and hope to get invited to talk and tour." I'm something of an introvert and although I enjoy visiting with other people I guess I'm more comfortable when someone comes up to our campsite and asks about our trailer than the other way around. If I'm out for a stroll around the campground and see someone in a FG trailer, I'll wave and say something like "Nice trailer!" and if the person seems agreeable or invites me over then I'll happily get into a conversation. Agree that most FG trailer owners and RVers in general are pretty friendly folks.

I'm with Evergreengirl. I will wave, smile, but wait for them to make the first move. Our Maiden Voyage out with the Casita last summer,another Casita pulled into the park about 15 minutes later. We were so excited! My husband is a walker and talker, he must have walked past that trailer 15 times hoping to have a little talk. It never happened, but it was sure nice to see another fiberglass in the park!

Following this line of reasoning, if you didn't want a thief to steal your trailer, you shouldn't have bought it. Or if you didn't want someone to key your new vehicle at Walmart, you shouldn't have gone there.

Just because a person owns an egg doesn't mean another egg owner has a "right" to intrusively violate his, her, or their privacy.

I might wave or speak, but do not enter someone else's campsite unless asked. Keep in mind that paying for a campsite is a rental agreement and that campsite temporarily "belongs" to the occupant.

Lighten up! It was meant in humor.

Every time we set up, Terry puts out the "Welcome" sign at the end of our site. Apparently some people should put out a "Do Not Trespass" sign.

Enjoy,

Perry

Yes, I'm always excited to meet other 'egg' trailers and their owners.

We live in the country. Everyone where we have lived gets to know one another and feels safe around each other. Very seldom do we have rigid boundaries and they are usually from urban people who are used to living by strict rules. The people we purchased our lake home from were urbanites. They came on weekends and it drove her crazy that people would speed by HER dock or drive four-wheelers on HER gravel road. The neighbors said they never knew what was safe or not for her. She didn't fit in.

We've never been chased off a campsite because we dared to try to establish a friendly conversation, and quite frankly, probably don't want to know those who would. OTOH, I do realize that some people may have had a major event (i.e. death, hospitalization), or something else, and need time to be alone, and that's OK. I'm guessing those 70% people in the poll feel the same way.

You're all welcome at our site and if we're out of coffee we'll make some more!

Enjoy,

Perry
