Concern that my Motorhome may be too old

for some campgrounds.

I recently purchased my first MH, a Gulf Stream conquest class c. It is a 2007 model. It has only 3300 miles on it.

I understand that some rv parks will not accept a rv over 10 years old.

Anyone ever have that problem? Should I expect trouble?

Thanks for your opinion.

There are a few that have that rule . Not many . I've personally not run into it , but to be fair we generally go to state parks

Typically that issue only comes up at the ritzier resort type places. If you plan to run with the highness crowd you may have problems but if you stick to the "real folk" places you'll be fine.

I got hit with that once, and if I'm not mistaken, I think it was a KOA.

The places that have the 10 year rule usually allow you to stay if over 10 years old if the RV is in good condition.

Some will let you stay, just not too long, 2 weeks - ok, a month - no. Those parks are for the pretentious anyway. You need to beer it up with us.

I was turned away several times in my '94 Bounder, but less often after the paint job I got done in Mexico, but still, there's one RV park I want to stay at in Portland, Oregon where they still turned me away.

Back in Feb. I bought a '02 Winnie, (14 years old!) but it really looks newer so no problem so far. Even at the Portland park that use to turn me away. Part of that has to do with the fact that it only has 71K on it. But I think it has more to do with that it looks modern enough that they don't ask how old it is when I drive up. I'm hoping the style is timeless.

If you're worried about it, park a little away from the office when you arrive.

I've yet to be turned away 1982 Pace Arrow. It depends a lot on condition of MH as others state.
If you do get rejected move on there are lots of places that will welcome your $$$$.

Only asked once at a KOA when making the reservation by phone. We are less than 10 years but I was surprised. We checked in and nobody even looked twice at our coach.

I have never been asked about age of my MH. It is a 2004. One of the reasons is they made them until 2010. Cannot tell difference unless you ask.

This has been discussed many times. General consensus is if your rig is in good shape you'll be fine.

We've never been asked the age or year of our MH. We're at the 10-yr. mark.

When they asked me, they weren't even looking out the window. I got the feeling they didn't care what it looked like, they were just following the owners rules.
