I would have NO problem with a request for a picture of our rig if it was over 10 years old and the park requested one. That would tell me the owners care what there place looks like. I would ask if they would send me pictures of the site I was reserving.

Sounds good to me, Who wants to park next to a RV or trailer with the view of it being held together by duct tape and sheet metal patch work.

If they implement the rule they have to draw a line in the sand regarding the age of the unit and for most 10 years seems to be the standard. The previous posts claim that this is a form of discrimination but I beg to differ. As a private concern they have the ability to set and enforce their standards and they also have the right to grant exceptions. I think the majority of us that own 10 year plus coaches that are excellent condition might be offended by the rule but it certainly isn’t discrimination. They are asking you to submit a picture of an in object…if they ask me to send a picture of my unit including my family then discrimination might apply. Bottom line the ball is in your court. If you really like the campground and want to reserve a site respond to their request and if you are offended by their standards book elsewhere.

You'd have to go back and read the entire thread for the debate on Discrimination, but...

It most certainly IS "Discrimination" though that's not necessarily a bad thing.

There is "illegal discrimination" such as discriminating for Race, Religion, Gender, etc.

Then there's legal discrimination such as when my wife picks out decorating colors and fabrics. She discriminates against the stuff she doesn't like, or she is said to have "Discriminating taste".

So if a campground wants to say "No RVs over 10 Years Old" they are Discriminating 10+ year old RVs out of their campground... BUT that is not illegal.

Now, if they said we're not going to allow Asian people in our campground, that would be Illegal Discrimination.

Both examples are forms of discrimination, just that one is legal, and one is not.

BTW... if the campground decided to ban fat people, that would - in the eyes of the law - be legal discrimination as fat people are not a protected class. Of course that would mean I couldn't stay there!
