And a lot of these parking areas were never designed to accommodate such large vehicles so sprinters have to park inefficiently in a space that 3 cars could fit in. Similarly some dispersed camping areas have a much less wild and peaceful feel with a group of sprinters having a van life party till 3am with all of their lights, music and engines on. Not that any other group of vehicle owners are any better, but sprinter vans are an easy target to categorize and generalize.
Yes. It is time for state parks and parking lots to join the 21st century and have larger parking spaces.

You mean go back to how it was in the mid 20th century! We went from big cars and big spots to tiny cars and now back to big trucks and vans. My 65 Lincoln continental was about the same length as my dads dually chevy
