they paid their money, why shouldn't they enjoy the way they feel most comfortable?
That said, I'll grant you that the RV was incredibly rude to park so that their exhaust blew into your tent. Did you ask if they could maybe shift it some so it was a little more.... "politely placed"? A "welcome to Burning Man, lets work together" approach might do the trick. Then again, it might not.....
We noticed a lot of virgins this year who didn't seem to "get" some of the basic get-along rules we seem to take for granted. We had a fairly big area open in front of our camp (on Wheel of Fortune/ the outer ring of Center Camp) so that paper boys & girls and vistors could park their bikes, and multiple times we had people pull into it like it was city parking, not even say hi, and start to walk away. We would just shout out that they should ask if they would like to park in our camp, but we did it nicely (most of the time....) All except for once they were very nice and apologetic, explaining that they were new & didn't know the rules.
It's a camping trip in the desert, not the redemption of the fallen world
