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.
