I've seen them motorhomes and 5th wheels only, and must be newer and/or provide proof of restoration when making a reservation. No converted school busses and the such

Why the snooty attitude about RVs?

While in Florida's Fort Pickens campground this past March, I saw a "camper" that really made me do a double-take. It was a full-size garbage truck, like a Waste Management vehicle. It was painted completely white. I have no idea what-all had to be done to make it suitable to live in. For all I know, it may be quite nice. Unfortunately, I did not have a camera handy at the time.

I've seen several "No tent camping" restrictions. Never seen an age restriction.

I've seen several with age restrictions but I never gave it much thought. IMHO if you own a place you can have any rules you like. I can chose to stay with you or not. America, what a country.

While I have never seen age restrictions, I have run into attitudes on our "stick and tin" trailer. I had one fellow last year comment that the campground should have a separate area for aluminum trailers. I smiled and agreed....it went totally over his head!

When I first started RVŪng.(in 1994)..there were campsites in AZ that we weren't allowed in. I had a 1994 34'Winnebago Adventurer - but... I was TOO YOUNG! (weird, eh?)

I get it at some of the "resort" places. These are not campgrounds now are they. SO I see that...but then again looking at the price to stay I think THAT eliminates regular campers. These places usually are for people with rigs that START over a hundred large...so in these places I can see the snooty...they can have the "resorts" as I would be a fish out of water....I don't walk around with a glass of wine and an Izod shirt with my color popped up like I'm still in the 80's.

What I don't get is it being in many other campgrounds. Like here in the Northeast I see it albeit more so for seasonal...the not over ten year rule. Some will allow older with approval which is fine but cmon...most campgrounds around here look crappier than most 8 year old RV's.

I have a 2003 Cedar Creek and mine looks less than 5 years old...but can't seasonal in probably over half the places.

As far as the trailer trash thing well...from experience it may be slightly true but I see a lot of them in new trailers come in so age of trailer makes no difference from what I saw.

Either a person takes care of what they own or they don't.


I think the campground owners should ease on up a little and at least let you be judged on your rig cause mine is as nice condition as any 2003.

Then again I could agree with my conspiracy theory side and side it's collusion with the RV industry to drive sales....but thats just paranoid.

I think it is just discrimination to not allow certain campers onto parks and would not stay at those.......... sorry I would rather have nice people in a trashy looking trailer next to me that a person with a 100K plus trailer that had an attitude & thought they owned the place.

I really don't understand some campers opinions of those that don't have as much, it not likely that you will ever see your campground neighbor again.
