When these discussions come up (including parks which claim they don't allow RVs over a certain age) some folks view it as an attempt to filter out certain "people". IMHO, it's not that at all, but rather an attempt to maintain the desired ambiance of the facility.

I spent 4 months in one of these places in Indio, Ca a few years back. The sites were all privately owned and developed and had market values (at the time) which started at $200K and ended near a cool million.

Needless to say, the facility was very nice and filled with upper end DPs. I think the members/owners feel that having all different types of RVs in there would cause it to take on the look and feel of a campground more so than the resort environment they are seeking.

It's not personal.

Very well said Rick, This is one of the best yet descriptions I have read concerning this type of question. Good job.

I don't question. They're private resorts & the owners are free to make whatever rules they wish. I'm free to move on down the road if I don't agree w/their rules. They're loss of my $$ & my recommendations... & no skin of my nose.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Part of the reason for no tents at some are because of the specific health department. I know here at this park there are separate areas for tents and RVs and there are no tents allowed in the RV area because of the LA health department. So sometimes it's not necessarily the parks rules but someone else's rules.

???

O.K., I'll bite:

What L.A. Health Department Regulation "requires" that tents be kept away from RV's?

And how far away, anyway????

Hmmmm, I'm guessing they wouldn't want me strolling around in my BORAT Bathing suit either ,even though I own a class A.
Oh we'll, their loss !

Francesca is right. In this case I would assume that the charges for these parks are higher than normal. For me, I'll move on, and pay less.

Let's stay on topic. LA Health Dept rules are another discussion.

Thanks,

We spent a week at a new RV Resort in Gulf Shores a couple years ago. I felt a little funny because we have a Springer Spaniel that needs to run and play and we were almost always outside but we rarely saw anyone out of there motor estates unless they were going to and from their car or walking their cat (could have been a dog).

The answer in every case is the same:

Because it's a commercial venture on Private Property and makes whatever rules it sees fit in order to serve the market it has chosen.
X3! Most people forget, we do not live in a democratic country, we live in a capitalistic country.

It is no different than many housing developments that have a minimum square ft. house requirement to live there or 55+ age requirement. It is some persons idea of what the area they built should be.
If you don't fit their rules or ideals, go spend your $ somewhere else.

Just think "Home Owners Association" and go on down the road. Problem solved.

The one I stayed in was absolutely beautiful. However, that isn't our cup of Tea as they say.

I'm a State Park kind of guy, I just happen to own a Class A motor home instead of a tent these days. Of course, tent campers make fun of us!

We're not Campers, we're Glampers
