And the complaint would be not that they don't have a nice park... or that there was bad service.... or rude people.... just that they have a rule you don't agree with?

Same approach could be taken for those places with signs that say "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service".

Rules are made up by the property owner, and that is O.K. I will vote with my wallet if I agree or disagree.

No shirt, no shoes , no service is a standard Health Department ordinance or law.

Big difference between a private rule and public law.

Good point. You're right.

A better analogy would have been a restaurant which requires long pants after 6pm.

The bigger issue I encounter quite often is, when I call a CG to make a reservation and let the clerk know my 5th wheel is 40' long they'll say 'no problem, our sites are plenty big enough'. Then when I drive in I find the roads to be so tight and tree branches hanging so low that it's impossible to get through without scratching the paint. This is more frustrating than anything else, I made it a habit to walk to the assigned site first when things look suspicious.
Well, they did say the spots are big enough, not that you couldn't get to it You just didn't ask the right questions

But do they like you?
BTW, in year, or 2 your, RV will be old enough that you have to ask permission, or pass inspection, to spend your $$ in a snooty RV park.
Personally I'm not interested in kissing anyone's butt.

Maybe the RV park owners are in cahoots with the MH manufacturers and are looking for another way to 'encourage' you to buy a new one. "tongue in cheek"

Next thing. RV manufacturer specific RV parks. Is your model good enough?

My last word. RV'ing used be about being out and about, meeting people and enjoying life. When CG's start eliminating us who may not have the big new MC, then they need to say that up front and deal with the high rollers who should have bought a house on a golf course.

Before everyone gins up the class warfare rants, try to recall where a lot of these rules came from.

Most State Parks have a limit on your length of stay- two weeks is common. Not too many folks complain about that. That came about because years ago a lot a SPs near cities or new highways would be inundated with transient construction workers staying for months on end, tools and equipment around the trailers, raising hell on weekends, and generally impacting the Parks' business and other patrons in real and harmful ways.

The unit age rules in most cases have nothing at all to do with any kind of snobbery or "fancy schmancy" preferences. If an owner wants to cater to the high end market segment there are easier ways. Hire a landscaper, pour level concrete, buy some teak lawn chairs, and charge $80/ night. He'll be full all season with nothing smaller than 40 ft or older than '11.

No, the age rules have very little to do with actual age, and are rarely enforced. They retain the decision making on the side of the park management. These rules are there to keep out "Cousin Eddie", but unfortunately they snare a great many undeserving folk in their net . It's very difficult to quantify just what constitutes a "Cousin Eddie", but RV age can be a great winnower. Also, it's probably illegal to list in your brochure "No low class as&@?$es allowed."

;-)

One of the couples that does the airshow circuit with us prefers to stay at c/g's instead of camping at the airports.

They used to get the 'no thanks' a few times a year, then started phoning ahead and talking to the c/g staff, usually that got them a pass, if not dropping a line like 'I'm looking for a c/g cose to the _______ airport where my plane is for the airshow.'

Once they have a feeling for who's asking the 10 year rule is rarely even mentioned.

That pretty much describes most CG's on route 2 in ND that we saw this last year. We actually felt safer in Walmart.
