Don't see many in our travels. We did stay at one in Nevada earlier this year. Don't remember the name right now too lazy to head out to the RV for the receipt.

It was a very nice place but not worth $99.00 per night.

I found the people there to be like any other neighbors we've camped with. We didn't run in too any snobs. Several people walking by stopped to chat. Alaska plates seem to cause that in most areas in the lower 48.

I liked the extremely large parking area in front of the office. Large enough for the biggest class A and their toad, probably held 30 RVs at one time. My favorite feature was the gated entrance with security guard. Had just picked up the RV and didn't realize until it was to late that our keys would not lock the door or the storage bays. This made the gate and guard a favorite. Normally would care about the gated feature.

We tend to lean towards private parks without the restrictions. I do admit I would pay a few bucks extra for parks with a "no idiots restriction" other than that we like meeting everyone.

I agree it's a private business and they set the rules, if we don't like the rules we just move on.

John,they need to train their dogs like Zeus, I put an open plastic bag on the ground and he poops right in it, it's a drawtite bag so he grabs the string closes it and carries it to the trash can. He only pees in a big coffee can I have with a handle on it and he carries that to the drain and dumps it! The barking part is he does not bark until after he eats the intruder then just to let me know to close the door.

I'd just like to say that MY dog doesn't poop at all...

But if she did, it wouldn't stink.

I don't see myself stopping at a "Class A" only establishement. I mostly stay at state parks and from time to time at KOA's both of which take all comers. However, if a private business wants to cater to 40' (Plus) DP's as an example fine. It's his business and if he can make a go of it more power to him. I can also understand that someone who paid $500k or more for a nice mh may not want to park next to a beatup rattle trap or even a brand sparkling new pop-up camper. Limiting entry is no different than fine restaurants establishing a dress and conduct code. If you want a nice quiet dinner to celebrate a big anniversary you may not want to sit next to a table of tank topped construction workers who just came in from working all day in 90 degree temps. Note: Nothing against the latter group of folks (been there).

Class A only is no different than no dogs/pets, over 55, or nudist only RV parks/campgrounds. It's my money to spend as I choose, and I'll spend it elsewhere whenever I want.

Is it a problem for manufacturers to underwrite such businesses?
Besides my (owner) in-laws' assertions of mfr. ownership interests, each of those resorts have pages entitled "Partners", indicating an ownership interest of some kind.
The folowing logos/names appear on the page to which the above links take you:
Scroll down the page at Hearthside Grove : Luxury Motorcoach Resort in Petoskey, Michigan
You'll see Featherlite, Millenium, and Liberty Mfr.'s listed as "partners".
And at Signature Partners | Signature Motorcoach Resorts
You'll find that the "partners" list includes Newell, Liberty, Country, Tiffin, Featherlite, Newmar, Millenium, Fleetwood, Amadus, and the Conversion Specialist Foretravel.

As I said before, I think it's a very good business decision for these manufacturers to help to provide facilities where their products can be fully enjoyed.


Francesca
That would make sence to that the main group that are for this are the ones that make the most money when someone buys one of the very same class As.

Of course I'm not hard to spot!!
