Should the complaints go the other way too? Should a campground that has 30 foot long sites and caters to smaller and older RVs be required to enlarge and upgrade their sites so a 45' coach can use that campground?

Yes but you have to think about why they...

Oh well, I guess I just don't get it!

Yes, but you have to think about why they are discriminating against Class Cs in favor of Class As. Who buys class Cs? People with lots of kids who can't fit them into a Class A. Of course I don't really know why they have an objection to Cs but it may not be an economical thing at all. They may just have found that they get the most complaints about groups with more than 2 kids. Just throwing it out there. Remember I'm the one that is in favor of only patronizing the more inclusive resorts so don't think I'm against Class Cs or people with lots of kids.

Just a hint, given that you are now the victim of discrimination you may want to tone down the attitude that those of us with older rigs are some how less desirable neighbors.

Cheers!

I think the key word is Resort, no matter if it is a campground or hotel it cost extra$$$$. I have stayed in one with it's own golf coarse very nice.

With all due respect, I think you are missing my point! Also, Is it really the perception out there that it is people with lots of kids who buy Class C's because in my case it's only my wife and I.

As for your discrimnation comment, I couldn't care less what kind of RV you own or for that matter who parks beside me - as long as they are courteous and considerate of me and others around them. I just think it's stupid to judge a book by by it's cover. I'd be much more interested in knowing what's inside the cover! And as I said earlier if you own the park, you get to make your own rules - I get it! I just think the rationale makes no sense.

A 45' foot coach can use any campsite/ campground it can squeeze itself into, just like the rest of us.
In most cases, the posted site size is more of a warning than a prohibition.

I suppose if I'm paying upwards of 400K for a campsite, I'd feel specialer (sic) if I was sandwiched in between a couple of million dollar Prevosts.

Campingman,

Here's a $400k+ class C: Class C RV | Freightliner Cascadia or Coronado | Touring Coach | Grand Sport Ultra | Overview | Dynamax Corp.

I'd like to have one of these!

If they wouldn't let me in I wouldn't care!

Just my wife and me and sometimes the grandkids. I think my trade from the A to this C was a trade up.

No "discrimination" at all. It's private property, they can make their own rules. If they don't want anything but Type A's than they can certainly do that.

No, if you had a Type A MH and were a minority and they told you they didn't want you since you are a minority, that's discrimination.

Also, RVIA, which sets the standards for RV's changed the designation for RV's to "Type" rather than "Class" around 2000. It's been slow to be adopted though.
