Loud exhaust at campgrounds

Previously I had a cat delete pipe in but recently I went ahead with the muffler delete pipe and absolutely love it. My question is has anybody ever complained about how loud your truck exhaust is while at idle or while trying to set up your camper due to the excess noise. Just wondering I'm pulling a 38ft Coachmen 5th wheel

Never had a complaint, but I didn't delete my muffler. Nobodys ever complained when I start my truck first thing in the morning when it's 30* outside either.

4" turbo back into 6" stacks no muffler. If they wanna complain the turn the programmer up and romp on the skinny peddle usually shuts people up. The hell with em!

My 6.0 with stacks is quieter than it was with the stock exhaust and a muffler/cat delete. It was way more obnoxious at idle like that as well.

That being said, I've never had any complaints. We've always had my truck and my buddies trucks (whatever he had at the time) and we've always had some sort of exhaust usually missing cats or mufflers.

We actually use truck tents too, so we needed the trucks. On a few occasions someone would be napping in the truck tent and the truck would start up and take a spin around the campgrounds. Just have to be smart about it I guess (if there is a smart way to do that!?). Obviously we're not romping on them at 2am either. Just be courteous.
