RV Parks today

Have any of you experienced any RV Parks now that are not accepting RV's over 10 years old? I thought I read a certain thread that stated that and cannot find it now!

I think some parks put limits on age for long term campers. I know of a park in Austin that limited older models. Only issue I see there is that I know of some vintage and airstream trailers that are from the 50's and 60's that look better than some new rigs.

Not personal, but observed experience concurs with this. Have been at a number of NYS and PA CGs where they are actively changing the image of seasonal sites with various conditions for trailers and site extras, maintaining of the site, etc. Now if you are talking transient use, I have not seen any restrictions for age.

I've seen some parks with an RV age limitation. The information below I copied from Golden Village Palms RV Resort, where the California rally will be held. When I registered they asked me age of RV and condition.

Yes. All RV’s must be fully self-contained, and are subject to an exterior inspection upon arrival. The RV must be clean, rust free, no broken windows, tarps for roofs and other modifications are strictly prohibited. Sorry no tent camping or pops allowed.

The reason I ask is we are going to look at a 2005 Coachmen Freelander 2600 and are now concerned that if we want to winter in the south it may be a problem with it being 10 years old. Thoughts or comments?

Unless specifically asked about the age, don't ask, don't tell.

Or find a unit about 5 years newer.

At the campground where we have a seasonal site they have the '10 year rule'. That rule isn't carved in stone as there are a couple camper units there that are older that 10 but don't look like it at all. The owners ask the age of the camper and if over 10 they request a color picture. Their campground, their call. I would call the RV parks you have interest in and talk to management.

The La Hacienda in Austin has some restrictions. I think depending on the condition they would allow you to stay there. This is from their website.

- We reserve the right to refuse service to any rig based on appearance and/or condition.
- Any rig over 10 years must be approved by management

Good reason not to go there.Isnt that a form of discrimination? I doubt if the 10 yr rule would stick in court,rusty junk is another thing though.

If one's camper is in good shape, it would be hard to know its age. Our 15 year old TT looks just like the new ones except for the slightly faded decals and some dings from use.
