But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Is the RV just gonna be there?  Or do you/we pick it up somewhere??

I'm a little confused, and that seems expensive

It will be there ready and waiting for you when you arrive. It's hardwired for power so no running the generator. they even empty and refill the tanks once per weekend.

That's funny, because I blame you for the shitters overflowing!

I remember walking out of Magnaball Saturday(?) night and the entire network of site bathrooms were down due to a pump problem or something, and the portashitters were all full after the long day. Nasty stuff.

PG I bet you can squeeze more than 4 in that RV.
You're entitled to your opinion but I'm going to laugh at it.

Jeez, you write a handful of letters to phish inc 20 years ago about the lack of snacks at Clifford Ball and they won't let you forget.

It is about double what you would pay to rent an RV for that amount of time, but you avoid the worst part of renting an RV, which is driving it and having to clean it/dump it/return it.  It's a premium for sure but renting and driving an RV is a fucking pain.  You also limit your chance of ripping the AC unit off the roof when you got to pick up your friends at a hotel and the lobby roof has low clearance  :| That was a bummer.
