Private campgrounds have the right to ask you to leave for no reason at all.... There privately owned.

Navarre Beach campground in FL has the, "No RV over ten years old rule". Unless they've changed from last year. Private campground - they make the rules.

As long as your coach looks in good shape do you really think they can tell what the age is? I doubt it. You could put it's a 2008 and how would they know? Do they plan on making people show proof? Who carries that info?

I own an RV spot in the UP of MI, Cedarville, and they have the ten year rule and they must be 28 feet long or longer. The RV park is run by a board of directors that are elected by the owners. I knew of the rules before I bought the lot. There are a good number of much older units at the park but they must look good and you must ask for permission. They don't allow home made RVs.

Who carries that information? You do. It's called the vehicle registration.

We have never ran into the age requirement in any campground that we have stayed at in Virginia, North or South Carolina, not to say there aren't any. The campground we stay at in Myrtle Beach often has a 1958 Spartan.

Usually everybody has it. Aside from the ownership/registration (same thing just named different in different places) it should also be on your trailer on the sticker with the VIN and the weight limits.

That aside, back to the OP's question:

I've never heard of such a rule for transients, but most of the places I've researched for seasonal have a similar kind of rule. In almost all those cases the 10 year rule just applies to starting a seasonal site and once you're in, you're in. You don't get kicked out on the 10 year anniversary of your trailer. My parent's seasonal for instance is about 24 years old now.

Of course every park is different so always do your research. Last thing you want is to show up somewhere and then suddenly have no where to go because they won't let you in.

Though, in those cases, I'd often not want to stay somewhere that's biased just on the age of the rig. Too uptight for my tastes.

Now if the rig is literally falling apart or something I can understand. I don't want my family around anything that could be considered unsafe but there are plenty of well maintained older rigs that are perfectly fine.

DITTO at the one we're at. when the new owners purchased the CG, there were a lot of "rust buckets" and that tended to deter even over nighters or weekenders from stopping.
