If one had a portable meth lab going, they could probably afford to put it into a new rig.

Hi Jeff35,
On the purchase side, I have visited only one RV resort that had the 10 year rule and actually enforced it. If I buy there, I must submit pictures of the coach each year and have it evaluated, by the management upon arrival. I did not make a purchase. At this time of life, I'm trying to make life simpler.

I can understand the reasons for the 10 year regulation. But, now that palehouse89 has brought it up, I don't understand the "Class A Only" resorts. If any Class A owners out there would have a problem with me parking my 2014 5er in the same resort, please speak up. My money seems to be good everywhere except a Class A Resort.

Thanks!! I keep it cleaned and shined, and it is a 2003 with almost 90,000 miles on it. Going to put another 5,000 on it during the next 10 days, headed to PA and back for Christmas!

I don't understand it either. It must be a southern states thing. In our part of the world, there's literally thousands of 5th wheels, and a handful of Class A coaches, so a rule like that up here would be ridiculous.

Last year in Nevada, we vacationed in a RV Park for a while with our son and family, us in our Class A, them in their 5th wheel. So, we wouldn't have been able to park in one of those 'Class A only' places.

I don't have a problem with a bumper pull travel trailer, 5 wheeler, Class A, B, C or any other class being parked next to me as long as it is clean and well maintained and I am fairly sure most of us don't. Lots of nice looking rigs out there to suit all tastes!!

We were at a RV park in West Memphis, AR a few months ago and a guy and his wife had one of the GMC units. His unit looked great!! We visited with him and ask him all kinds of questions about his rig. I like the looks of some of the older rigs and appreciate those that have them and restore them.

As for a Class A only resort, most of those have gold courses and other features that I don't need.. but then I do like a clean RV park. We have pulled through a few and kept on going just because the RV park owners didn't seem to care what their park looked like!!

Mission Bay RV Resort

Mission Bay RV Resort in San Diego requires your RV be 1995 or newer. That hasn't changed for about the last 10 years that I know of. That is non-negotiable, and they require you show them the registration to prove it. This RV park is owned by the city, and is a typical government operation. You know the drill, every box checked off, every blank filled in, no exceptions, no common sense or judgment required (or allowed).

Here's the rules:

Haven't stayed there for quite a few years, but it was a fine place to stay at.

We stayed at Mission Bay and were not impressed one bit. It was filled with a bunch of low life's and Believe me, I am far from being a snob . Would never stay here again !

Just playing devil's advocate here and it's something we've pondered as with a family of five - including two special needs kids, we're outgrowing our 45' DP and like the floor plans of fivers better.

My issue -- and certainly not a generalization, mind you -- is largely the tow vehicles many use for fivers. A stock pickup, in my opinion, isn't a problem -- in fact, I have a 2015 Chevy 3500HD - it's pretty quiet. The issue is the weekend warriors that mod their pickups to the gills, tune them, open up the exhaust (my personal favorite are the straight stacks out of the bed of the truck :( ) and as that's their only mode of transportation once the fiver is setup, the rest of the campground has to listen to those things touring around the campground. We were in a park in Indiana in the fall for two weeks. Every morning at 4:15AM, the .... gentleman... next to us would start his over-modified Dodge Ram diesel dually ("BANKS POWER") stickers on the back, stacks going through the bed -- (ie: the guy thinks it's a Kenworth and he's a truck driver. ) He'd then go back into his trailer and let it idle (fast idle at that) for 30 mins before leaving.

So obnoxious and the lack of common sense and basic courtesy some of these folks display is what prompts these perceived elitist policies.

It's the same thing with motorcycles. Because these guys use their harleys like golf carts to get around parks, many are incorporating policies "to and from site only" or disallowing them altogether. Some even require they be stored somewhere else.

So, in short, I don't feel it's the trailers that are necessarily being excluded (except apart from a toy hauler loaded with ATVs) but the tow rig. Campgrounds aren't going to get into "what type of modifications have you made? is it loud?" -- it's just easier in a quieter park/campground to say "Class A" only. Once a Class A is parked, it's parked and not going anywhere until it's off to its next destination.

Thanks for the offer.
Can you send 8-10' of duct tape too, (to hold the glass over window openings)? ....I had to sell the 2 now missing windows to pay the site fee in this overpriced RV "Resort").
That might "pretty-up my" coach enough that they let me stay another night.
BTW, I wish that my coach had failed inspection when I first got here.

However, because I don't want to spend my $$ at a park like that even more than they don't want my old coach... (and because my coach does NOT like to be inspected by anyone but me), it has never been a problem.
However I do occasionally drive through one.... (so they can see what they're missing).

I have been to Mission Bay RV park several times, not as a camper but to use their boat ramp during Bayfair Thunderboat Races. We launched and loaded our rescue boats there every day. There were a lot of nice rigs there, but there were also a lot of undesirable people hanging out (loitering). Some even resembled gang bangers, but maybe that's just the way they dress. I found them to be very rude and I would never stay there even though the location is amazing.

What is wrong with a tune rig????

I had an issue with my neighbor next door to me two years ago at a public park in OH. It was a women's long weekend and they would stay up till all hours of the night talking extremely load and playing their music all night. Sleep in till the afternoon and start all over again the next day. Will I ask them to hold it down to a slight roar but to no avail!!! Will pay back is a
_ _ _ _ _.

I started my truck on Sunday at 8:00 AM; turn up the high idle to 1500RPM and turned on the exhaust brake. Since it is tuned up truck the Exhaust brake sounds like a high pitch jet engine running. Sat and IDLED the truck has I went about and broke camp, they did wake up that morning real early for them.

This sounds like a great process to extend the life of your diesel engine
Putting the fuel to it and blocking off the exhaust........
On all "engine brakes" (All kinds) if installed correctly, you should not be able to do this, feed the engine fuel with a engine brake on.
