iRV2 Forums: Shoes Off Rule? Just Wonderin'
Discussion of the shoes-off rule on a forum for owners of motorhomes. It's nice to see that plenty of American motorhome owners prefer shoes off inside.
It's interesting the UK/US difference about living in trailer parks. In the US, living in a trailer park is seen as very low class, equivalent to our council estates. Here in the UK, apart from Gypsies and Irish Travellers, living in a caravan (trailer) is associated with middle-class eccentricity. When my parents were temporarily living in a caravan park (trailer park) while relocating to the south-east, I took great delight in telling my American friends about my 'white trash' parents.
I expect most middle-class British caravan dwellers take their shoes off and ask visitors to do the same, as our caravan parks can get really muddy. I understand this is the custom among Gypsies.
