They run the park, and it's private for members, and perhaps have more traffic than they can handle now, whatever.

It is possible that each resort may handle drive-thrus with their own managers policy. They may have had member complaints, they might have had security problems. I know if I left an expensive rig filled with expensive things behind a security gate in a members only resort while I was gone for the day, I would not be happy to have unaccompanied strangers driving around.

Or he didn't like something about you ... or the guy just before you cursed him out when he said wait for a sales rep so he just told you "No, go away" ... or he just had a bad day ...

Doesn't mean it's company policy, or that all the TTs are bad. I'm sure it was annoying, but consider the possibilities and cut the guy a break. It saves on medical bills for the ulcers!

Aren't you about to fix that "problem"?

Seriously, almost every time I have heard that restriction the caveat has been that the CG/Resort reserves the right to approve older units or even exclude newer units based on whether they "fit" into the CG's idea of acceptable. Yes...very subjective.

We've been members for years and like the system. Most of the parks are as good or better than you will find in the open market. The concept worked well for us when we camped with our family and works well for us now that the kids are on their own.

Soon to be enjoying the system on the Oregon coast

Was this at Portal RV resort? Did they ask to see any paper work proving the year of your Coach? I have read where they let older good looking Coach's stay in the resort side due to the condition of the Coach. The reason I ask is that I am wanting to stay there in Sept. but I don't make the 10 year cut.

A lot of places will tell you that, but accept older units after a quick look. Ours is 12 model years and it regularly gets mistaken for a newer or even new one.

Now this is what happens when non TT members comment.

Thousand Trails parks are now open to the public, Usually 35/night though prices may vary.. MEMBERS still get "Free" (Well for me it's 45/month weather I use it or not) 2 weeks in one week out (or 3 and 1 depending on your membership) and Zone Pass members a slightly different package (still 2 in one out 30 nights free and a very low fee after that).

But Thousand Trails parks now welcome non members,,, for a nightly fee. AT least the TT/Encore parks do and he did say this was that type of park.

Yes at Portal. I told them 2003. No they didn't ask me for proof.

"Sounds like you were looking for a free nights stay to me."

"Just think.. You got to know all that you needed without wasting your time or gas!"

"You got LUCKY, you don't want to be a member!"

"Yup, that must be it. They were taking precautions on the off chance that someone in a 45 ft. coach, towing, would want to go postal and start robbing people. Then, make a super fast get-a-way, Bonnie and Clyde style."

"I'll take my business elsewhere."

Wow, people! Were you all just having a bad day, or what? I'm all about uncensored opinions, but why just the nasty jabs? Some of us enjoy our TTN memberships. This was not our finest moment as a well-mannered iRV2 family.

yep
you can have mine
for a small price

they should have provided you a 30 minute pass of sorts
sounds like they just didnt want to try to make a sale

I have been poking tt main office in the eye for weeks now
they simply do not give a crap anymore about persons with rv's
and the staff at many locales are similar minded

most staff lives onboard in campsites
so they have a place to live and short commute
