Reservation requirements

OK I am new at "snowbirding". As we checked out a few CG's in our area of interest (Gulf coast to New Orleans) we thought we found a great CG. When we inquired further we got a rate sheet (always nice to have) and a questionnaire with questions about felonies, evictions, and references. Now I may be a little inexperienced but is it common practice to ask for references when we are looking to stay 30+ days? Thanks for your replies.

Pretty standard practice when you rent any apartment, house, etc. An RV park is no different, other than you bring your own living space with you.

Not common, but, you are now involved in an uncommon endeavor.

Lots of folks that own the private campgrounds run them as the see fit-so just about anything goes. It may just be, they know their clientele. We have stayed at places that allow long term residents, and some of their tenants look pretty rough, that is one of the reasons we prefer State Parks. Now, it is your call-do what you want to do.

We stayed at a campground in Bar Harbor this summer-No reservations-Cash only- But, it was a nice place.

Never heard of a thing like this. But they own the property and its there rules. I would look for something else.

Once you "live" in a rented place over 30 days it's VERY hard to evict them, so they have started doing background checks on possible tenants, just like if you rented a house. Not that unusual in places in CA from what I've read.

Staying mostly at state parks one doesn't have to deal with that. I notice watching a lot of YouTube of full timers, that many of the so called private campgrounds, are really glorified mobile home parks where a small section is for shorter periods of stay. Some look trashy, where even the regular RV's have been there for years. So that could be a reason for the added measures.

OK thanks for the feedback, guess I am used to the State, County, and COE facilities.

Once you rent a space for more than 30 days in most states, the rental laws kick in, just as if you rented a house or apartment. Consequently, for a campground to get you to leave, they have to follow eviction rules. So for their safety and to avoid having to evict deadbeats, they have to conduct checks just like an apartment owner.

As if a felonious person is really going to tell the truth in the application.

That's why I said they conduct background checks in post #5. That should ferret out the ones that lie on the application. We do that here at work too, you'd be surprised how many prospective tenants get turned down.
