Older RV

Hi,

We're in the process of buying a used Class A motor home and it could be over ten years old. Is there a problem at any of the RV parks in the States parking with an older motor home?

Thanks
Barbara

Some parks do require that they be newer than 10 years old, usually in the resort type campgrounds. Not usually not a problem in the older campground. A good maintained unit [not run down looking] should not have a problem. imo.

Barbara,

There are some RV parks with a 10-year limit, but I think these are probably less than 1% of the ones operating. Other owners on this forum may have more accurate information.

Some of the parks with the 10 year are flexible. Depends on how well maintained the rig is. I've seen where people with older rigs in nice shape have sent a picture to the park and were admitted with out problems.

I've never seen it enforced but I rarely stay at the resort type parks.

Lot's of older rigs out there, all of them can't be boondocking.

I think 1% may be too high. The only one I've encountered is a place that rents RV sites for upwards of $175/nt.

All good advice so far. It's only in very high end resorts and probably <1% of parks. I wouldn't worry about it.

I would agree. Nothing to worry about. I'm sure any park might refuse an RV if they pulled in looking like the Beverly Hill-Billies wagon.

Also have a 10 y/o plus coach, and I use a "Tactic" some of the ladies use, i.e., if they are rude enough to ask Missi Blue II's (Coach's Name ) age, then I have no qualms about fibbing a bit. I would bet most clerks in "Those Types of Parks" won't be bright enough to tell the difference

The high end resorts generally have the rule but if the rig looks good you won't any problem at all. The only time we were inspected was at the Oasis RV Resort in Las Vegas when we had our 94 Bounder. It passed with flying colors. After entering the park and seeing a couple of the rigs that were allowed in there I really had to scratch my head wondering why they had a inspection process at all.

I know that there are a few RV parks that have that "newer than 10 years or so rule"

I did run into that situation a couple of years ago, I said thank you but I will drive on a little farther (while scratching my nose with my middle finger)
