First place on this entire trip that I've gotten attitude like that.
Their park, their rules.

Rules are one thing. Attitude and thinking you're above others is another. His loss; I would've spent a good chunk of cash there.

Isn't it strange they turn away business like that? Never understood the 55+ mentality. Is it something against people who may bring children? Guests? Can't be a noise thing; I know plenty of people in their 60's that still rock out. My fiancee' and I are extremely quiet and hate being lumped into the 'party animal' category because of our age or our older RV :/

I think, by law, the 55+ parks have to accept a certain percentage under 55. It might be an Arizona thing though. I just heard it during a conversation.

ON EDIT: I should have Googled first....here's a post on the subject I just found...

Talked to the Twin Palms owner and he said though they have a 2000 model year and newer policy, we'd be allowed if the appearance of our rig was good. Looks like we'll have to spend some time in the car wash!

Rate is $421/month with billed electricity; $250 deposit for that. Their site says the rates are all inclusive (20/30/50 amp too)... maybe they need to work on the wording? (check it here: http://twinpalmsrv.com/rates.htm)

That sound normal for electricity? Any idea how much we might use in our smaller Class-C with, most likely, the AC running nearly 24/7? I've heard most people never see the remainder of their deposit... hopefully that won't be the case!!

The nights are getting wonderfully-cool now in Arizona so you might not need AC at night. I would allow at least $50/month for electric. If you will be there in winter then running the furnace will up it.

The only place, (and trust me, I called everywhere I could find) that would allow something so old was Scottsdale Trailer Corral.

We arrived after dark, beat from the 4000 miles we just covered, and proceeded to drive and back into our spot. Bad idea. Rules are no after dark arrivals; period. Even though I had hundred point turned perfectly aligning my rig with the spot she insisted I drive back up front and pull in a spot backwards for the night and we'd get our spot in the morning. Rules are rules but she really was NOT friendly or welcoming at all; especially for someone about to pay just over $600 for a month!

We don't feel at home here at all but have no options if we need public transportation. Tomorrow morning I sign the paperwork... hope this is the right choice; that's pretty much the last of our savings!

She was much nicer in the morning. Just worried about people messing the place up as it's very tight in here!

Going to apply at every place within walking distance first. Then I move towards metro distance!
