Here's a dissenting point of view ...

So over 55 parks are ok but parks that don't allow rv's over 10 yrs old or parks that only allow class a's aren't ok? So how come one is ok but the others get ripped to shreds?

Just curious.

Choosing a campground is no different than choosing a restaurant or movie. There are thousands to choose from and your selection will greatly depend on your mood or requirements for that particular stay. If we are traveling alone we might choose a 55+ park, traveling with our grandchildren we would seek a family resort and sometimes we simply choose by geographic location and convenience. I get so tired of reading posts in which people feel the need to impose their likes and dislikes on others when all they need to do is make a choice. And now I will get off my soapbox...

I think I would prefer 55+ parks. I have never stayed in one but we are not used to children. Of course I not saying some of the 55+ are just as bad. Walking in you space,like right by the windows, How rude.

Hi PyrateSilly,
Can you explain your post a bit more? For me, a property can make any rules they want to make. Whatever the rules are it is okay with me. Like vanbuskirk posted, it's a choice. Be happy with whatever choice one makes. However, don't whine and cry about the choice someone else makes. There is no right or wrong on this topic.

I have read lots of posts on this forum and "the other one" about a CG not allowing a rig over 10 yrs old. The comments pile on about how "dumb that is and I would never stay there" and then people ask which CG so they can call and complain.
I have also read lots where people pile on about how could a CG exclude TT's and only want Class A's.
Sometimes the comments have gotten really rude too on those.
There's a CG near us that will allow just about anyone to stay overnight but if you want to stay a week or a month than you need to show your registration to prove the rig is not older than 15 yrs. They can do what they like and we have no reason to complain. That is their business.

I think it is because the 10 year rule hits some people as class discrimination - it seems to imply that people with lots of money are better than people that don't have much money. In other words, if you don't have enough money to have a new motor home you are not good enough to stay here. the over 55 rule doesn't have anything to do with how much money you have. IMO that's why the over 10 year rule angers some people that are ok with the over 55 rule.

This seems like a very logical explanation, I totally agree.

Here's a clue .... things may not always meet any particular person's definition of fair. For some, there are counselors for that reality.

If You want to feel OLD try staying in a +55 park. But its there business we just dont go to them. During my working years I had many service calls at nursing homes and assisted living complexes and +55 parks remind me of those places. I hope to stay away from that enviroment as long as I can.

The 55+ parks cater to folks who want a quieter more relaxed environment and that makes perfect sense. At 56 I have no problem getting in, however DW has a few years to go before she crosses the threshold. She's very well behaved, won't steal the toilet paper from the bathroom, and rarely rides her Big Wheel anymore but alas, she is unfit for this environment. Never thought I would be looking for a fake ID this far down the line.

nforus,

A gray wig and a walking cane will probably suffice for your wife being underage and inelegible for the 55 plus parks.

After thinking about this......toss a long haired blonde hair chunk on her, short skirt, heels, make up, even give her a new name....etc. and just tell them she is your long lost daughter and your wife had just left you
