Sat and IDLED the truck has I went about and broke camp, they did wake up that morning real early for them.

The park we are in (Marin RV Park, Greenbrae CA) has in fhe fine print something about age. I thnink it's 15 years. If it is that old they will look at it and you can stay 2 weeks. If it's younger you can stay longer. I have never really taken the time to read but I bet ist's there in most parks.

Not to worry, there are plenty of nice campgrounds that want your business, (and your $$).
BTW, I simply can't understand why anyone with an ounce of pride would subject themselves to the humiliation of an inspection.

I approach them all as if they will let me in. I keep the exterior and DW keeps the interior looking like new.

If they look at my unit and decide they need to do an inspection what they can see from the office is what they will get. Only guys I will let inspect the inside is the border security guys if they want to.

"Excessive pressure" is due to the water system, not the parks rules. In over 55 years of RV'ing I've never blown out a water hose as I use a Watts pressure reducer.

I assume that you went someplace else then?

And didn't Woody quote Groucho?

So you wouldn't want to be in one of the restrictive campgrounds that would let you in.

I've yet to run across a restriction, but there have been some campgrounds that were too snooty for me (and some that were too "earthy").

Boy, I sure hope that WalMart doesn't start with age restrictions.

I might have to move over to Home Depot or Lowes!

And I might have to tow my Back-Up unit too.

FYI We already joined Escapees and Good Sam.

I was told that when I called to make reservations in Quartzite this fall, I sent them a picture and they said welcome and I made reservations.

I read this topic when it comes up and remember a story told in our group.

A chapter had arranged a rally at a specific campground because one member had stayed there years ago. As it happened, the wagonmaster was going right by there and was looking for an overnight. He pulled in as was asked the age of his coach and was a bit taken aback. He answered honestly that his (being one of the newer) was only 33 years old. He was told that it was not allowed in. He asked first to confirm that he had the right place and then asked what If someone already had a reservation and was assured that any deposit would be refunded.

He went out to his coach and came back with the list of 30odd that had made reservations and canceled them all.... Right Then.....

He got out his books and when a few miles down the road to another. That one was universally thought nicer and it was also less expensive.

The newest of out coaches are now 37 and our is 42.
