Clarification please.....

We are planning 'way in advance' for a trip but have some questions.

Looking through Good Sam's Travel Guide I keep coming across in the RV Park listings, it shows 'cable svc' ...please tell me what the 'svc' stands for?

I always check out prospective RV Parks Websites for any updated information along with reviews also before any decisions I will Google Earth it to get the lay of the land and look for any surprises like a railroad just outside the CG.

When visiting some of these sites I have noticed 'some' RV Parks have a restriction on how old (10 yrs) the RV can be.

Is this very common and is it strictly enforced?

Or, is this just a way to eliminate an old run down eyesore that is probably unsafe?

Our WildCat is a 2007 and I am not about to go out and purchase a new one (in 2 years) when ours is still in good service.

Thanks in advance
Islander

Depends on how snooty they want to be... I, personally, wouldn't give those places the time of day

I had my last 5th wheel 18 years before trading and never ran into a "it's too old" problem. I think most of that pertains to 'seasonal' or more permanent sites.

I had a 2000 MH 3 years ago and we stayed at Oasis RV Resort in Las Vegas where a restrictive notice is posted that says "any RV 10 or more years old must be inspected prior to admittance". Our unit was inspected with no issues noted at check in. Not a big deal for a responsible camper that takes pride in owning his/her RV.

Personally, I'm OK with snooty restrictions. Imagine this pulling in next to you...
