Others here have had success with rigs older than 10 years by calling ahead and sending pictures to show the rig is well maintained.

I think in most parks the 10 year old rule to keep the rigs held together by duct tape, etc... out, so if you can show yours is well maintained you will be ok.

Hi Don,

Welcome to a great forum. Answering your question, I have never had a problem entering campgrounds with any of our motorhomes older than 10 years. There has been previous discussion of this topic, use SEARCH at the top of the page, and enter something like "10 year old motorhome restrictions" if that doesn't work, just try another variation.

First ran into that problem in 2002 in Palm Desert. We were traveling in a newly restored 1968 UltraVan (class A MH). The gate guard stopped us and told use he wasn't supposed to let us in. He then asked if he could come inside. We showed him around. He went back to the guard shack and called the park manager. The manager arrived in a golf cart looked at the outside of the coach and said let them in. After we parked, we had about 10 couples tour the little 22 ft, class A, all aluminum, gas pusher coach. All the couples came over from tag axle coaches. We were never denied entry in 16 years of traveling in the UltraVan.

Mine is going to be old enough to smoke next year, and so far I've never been turned away.

Never have had a problem with my 2000 Suncruiser. If they do, well, glad their business is so good they don't need my money.

Best to call for Reservations just in case!

If you are into RV Resorts you will have more problems. If you are needing a overnight by the freeway I've never had a problem. We do more camping than Resorting, that's probably I have only run into it a couple times and a picture got us in so we could spend way too much for a nights stay

Would someone please tell me where these restrictive places are ?? Honestly in 9+ years we have never even been asked or seen the rule written at any placed we've stayed. Now honestly we don't stay at fancy resorts, but we don't stray at dumps either.

It's always good to call ahead see if they want pics of your rig. However if your MH is in good shape you shouldn't have any problems.

We have never been asked! We are 2 months into a 5 month trip. If they do ask I will probably just hang up on them.

We never had a problem but then our older RVs were clean, waxed, windows sparkling with nice full curtains, no torn screens or duct tape anywhere. Most don't want uncared for "junkers" and who can blame them?

1. You probably won't even encounter a place that has that rule.
2. If you do, and your rig exterior is reasonably clean and decent, they probably won't even ask the age.
3. If asked about the age when making a reservation, offer to send pictures.
4. If denied, or if you don't want to deal with the question, photos, etc, simply go to another park instead.
