Question 55+ RV Park Question

When we lived in Florida there were a number of 55+ neighborhoods, and the rule was one member of a couple had to be 55 or better, and it was okay if the other spouse was under 55. Is this the same approach that 55+ RV parks take, or do both spouses need to be at least 55? Thanks!

just guessing, but I would think the "age police" would not want to see proof... unless of course you looked like 21 or less...

First off, welcome from Georgia. I guess it depends on the area of the country, park etc. We winter in AZ and our park and most that I know about have similar rules. 55+ for at least one.

Heres the rule for Florida:
For a community to be considered "housing for older persons" as a 55+ community, the housing must be intended and operated for occupancy by persons 55 years of age or older and meet the following requirements: At least 80% of the occupied units are occupied by at least one person 55 years of age or older.

As Alan F says....One must be 55+. The mate can be as young as 45 as long as 80% of the residents are 55+. Youngsters can visit for up to 2 weeks a year. I worked for a 55+ RV park in Arizona and there are tax credits for the owner of a 55+park. And the Feds DO check ages if there are complaints made. Many Arizona parks require you to show your drivers license upon registering and then if the Feds check they have a record of birthdates.

Geez......

I wish my biggest problem was if I could pull off looking 55+.

HOLY MOLY!!!
Over 55, no kids, no pets, no campfires, no cooking outside. Only outside of your rig between 8am and 7 pm, no flags, no hanging any name plates, no rigs older than 10 years old. Toads and dollys to the overflow lot. No guests under 55.
Where does it all end? Might as well stay home!
We LIKE having younger campers near us, or in the same park. They're up on the gadgerty, and we're up on the knowledge learned from the past.
Besides, get a bunch of over 55'ers togather, and all we end up talking about is our aches n pains, meds we have to take, and the best buy's we've scored at the JC Penneys clearence rack with coupons.

I live in a 55+ RV/mobile home park in Arizona...

At least one has to be 55+...not sure of the minimum age but I do know that kids can only visit and not live here.

Nice to have both pools to ourselves...

In Texas 55+ parks one of the household has to be 55, other just have to be over 18. Special exemptions can be made, depending on park. We enjoy the restrictions, like aged people with similar experiences, interests, etc. We are one of the younger couples, and are very active. Its not like campgrounds, where you have mix of people coming and going, which is also nice. Most people in 55+ are there for the season.

Looks like your all talking about RV Resorts where your there for several months. I wouldn't call those real "campgrounds".
OK, I can understand that and the restrictions.
