X's 2, on all points.

The percentage of parks that actually have this rule is miniscule. The heated debate on the subject whenever brought up (which is frequently) not so much. If you live in the real world, you'll be fine.

I have to smile for a couple of reasons. The best one is tomorrow I give a man a handful of $100.00 bills for a 1993 35' motor home. My wife asked what we are going to name her. They're always a her and they're always named. I'm going to call her Jane because she's one very well put together old gal that's prettier and in better shape than a lot of girls half her age. I about fell out of my boots when I stepped in and the dash air ice cold. That's a 93 diesel pusher with dash air that works. The way I see it I'm paying for her experience and the previous owner's obsession with perfection.

The duct tape remarks are funny. Our first RV was a toy hauler that I traded some work for and on the way home we found out about delamination. NASCAR racing duct tape comes in color and different widths. The 12" white properly applied was invisible until you got real close.

A lot of parks may post the 10-year rule, but it's really just an excuse they can use to keep out the real junkers... they're not going to refuse good money on a well maintained rig staying in their park.

However, one place you might see it strictly enforced is if you ever try to buy a lot in an RV resort. Often, their HOA rules and owner regulations are so strict that they can't override the rule no matter how nice your rig is. If they let one in they'd have to let them all in, and the other owners aren't going to put up with that.

Not every resort, of course, but a lot... at least at some of the ones I've looked at in Indio, Palm Springs, Cathedral City, Las Vegas, etc.

Just fyi...

Funny thing is we ran up against that only once when we had our beautiful older Bounder. It was at Redwood Acres in Eureka, CA. When we called they asked the age and we stated what we had. Ended up answering more questions than if I was trying to get hired by the FBI.

When we showed up we were floored. More permanent junkers than you could imagine. What a dump and we ended up only staying the one night vs two we needed to do for our Passport America discount. Won't stay there again!

Sometimes you just have to laugh.

If asked you can always say it's a 2008 model. There must be some part in the coach that is 2008 or newer.

We stayed at Pecan Park Riverside in San Marcus TX. Stopped over the other day to make reservation for Nov. Dec. this year and were told the 2006 is to old. The place was destroyed by two floods and is not as nice as it was and not even half full. Went up the road to a SUN park - Paying the same and much nicer so sometimes its for the better. Pecan owner did call back and said being that they knew my coach is not junk he would make the res. TOO LATE
