Before we sold our 87 Allegro I would put it's appearance up against anything out there. Except for some dings on the exterior is didn't show its age. The inside would put most people to shame considering it was 25 years old before we sold it to a friend. When we were looking at newer rigs I kept comparing them to mine and trying to explain to dealers that their units were trashed compared to my old one. It took us a year to find a 2003 26' Chateau in the shape I wanted. We also got it for 60 cents on the dollar to retail and 20% under low Nada. It helps to understand what to look for and how cash talks.

Even though our new rig is within the 10 year rule I really don't know if I would care if that came into play. I am the customer and I can just move on. I can understand if someone has a High Profile park and wants to exclude older rigs OK. As for resale it's all about condition, condition, condition. And a bad conditioned unit will always find someone who hasn't a clue.

I don't see it having an impact on resale in the overall market. Only because I don't think there are that many CGs that or have or have a habit of enforcing it.

Perhaps a savvy buyer who has been the unfortunate recipient of MH age discrimination might negotiate based on his personal experience.

I doubt it would affect the price at all, most parks that have the 10 year rule are usually fairly high priced parks, that a lot of us don't care to spend that much to stay at those parks. So far we've never come accross a park that has that rule.

You are correct, check with any dealer they will echo this fact!

My question has to do with such effect as may or may not be felt in the resale market.

Nada guides show a fairly precipitous drop in Mohos older than ten years...I wondered if anyone thinks that campground age restrictions have anything to do with that phenomenon.
Well, since you put it that way, my opinion is I don't think it matters at all except to those few people who might have been asked about their RV's age once upon a time.

I don't think it would.

Resorts with the 10 year rule that have accepted our cash to park our now 18 year old rig in the past 8 years:

Outdoor Resort Indio (Many times)
Pacific Shores Newport (before bankruptcy and revival) (3 times)
Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort (three times)
Cocopah RV Resort (once, never to return again)

X2.
Not many buyers have cash to purchase any RV.
I have noticed Good Sam and some credit unions have less than 10 year age requirement for loans. On their websites both Essex and Bank of America have a less than 7 year requirement.

Last 3 RVs we bought have been cash. The trick is to buy what you can afford, not what yours eyes want to keep up with the Jones.

I understand that a resort property would not want abused rundown RV's at their resort but setting a 10 year old rule is bad business. There are a lot or nice looking well maintained RV,s out there with great folks that will spend their hard earned cash on their vacation.

There are plenty of nice places to stay that do not discriminate based on age. I personally would not give them my money if they do.

Don't know, Don't care. The reason my wife and I have a MH is we hate dirty motels and we like our privacy. We would just as soon stay in a Walmart or a truck stop or rest area. We don't really care for the so called social atmosphere of the crowded campground, with all the people who want to get away from it all while they sit around with each other watching the football game on the sat. tv. So if some fancy campground wants to restrict themselves to newer MH's, fine ,we will find a parking spot in the boonies somewhere and enjoy. As far as resale values, I do not think it will make any difference. Something like that will have no effect on a multi-billion dollar industry.

I asked a campground about that rule and they told me it was more for the odd customer that comes in looking like the Beverly hillbillies then they would have an excuse not to let them park there

I think you wanted to post this here Rigs older than 10 years old - Restrictions
As this is the thread disscusing what is going to happen to your value due to this.
This just might be the diplomatic explaination
