Have any of you with Vintage RVs experienced any reluctance on the part of any campgrounds to let you in based on the age of your unit? I've heard stories about some CGs that only want the newest and best...

There are some and many more coming. There are acouple of parks on the Oregon Coast that only allow certain types of rigs into their parks. And there are a couple in Las Vegas that cater to the high end units.
With the price of land skyrocketing and the investment of the park owners I guess they can make what ever rules they want.
I don't like it. Don't agree with it. But there it is.

A lot of the folks with the "high dollar" rigs don't want to be around the older rigs since they are worth less $$$. They don't understand what RVing is really about. It is not about $$$$, but is about friendship.

There is a resort style park near us with the 10 year and 28' rule. Won't allow pop-ups or tents. The exception is an older coach approved by the management. In this case (but not all parks do this) they only want to make sure the rig is in good condition and clean. I have seen rigs as old as 20 years there, they are clean, well kept and beautiful.

We have a vintage 1971 Airstream. It has never happened to us, but we don't stay at the high end resort type of RV parks. I don't think we would want to stay at a place that would say we are "too old".

The place where we are workamping allows older RVs in the short term area, but only 15 years old and newer in the monthly area.

They did this because basicly homeless people were bringing in pieces of junk to live in. They either abandoned it as they moved on, or trashed the area around it. The management was left to clean up the mess.

They don't like to do this, but felt they had no other alternative.

It would be interesting if they had someone like "Warren Buffert" Stopping by.????

He lives in the same house he had 40+ years ago---------Before he had anything!!!
He drives an old car....... Would he not be welcome with the ones that are in debt to their ears??

I ran a Boat , instead of an Rv for about 10 years---and I have met more CEO's and top Co. Execs. at the same docks I was at ---and they treated everyone --just as they were--Enjoying Boating. RV'ing is no different. I have met a lot of Great People----Real People, that enjoy this country.-----------I don't care what their wealth is---Are they Good People-----This Is what counts.

Hey all, Ken and Rogueii have nailed it right on the head. rving IS suppose to be about meeting friendly people regardless of how many bucks they have in there wallet.Maybe it is time the rv courts will wake-up and read the writing on the wall! I'm not to sure I'd want to stay with that kind of greeting anyway.

where are are at now, its not a matter of age, more of actually safety and overall condition
we ahd a 20 foot or so 80's vintage nomad pull in, they proceeded to unload a frig a big screen tv and beds from the TV and place em on the ground. oh plus two window ac units,

geuss what was inside the trailer???? one stove, no furnishings, and a few more gas powered cookers, and they say it wasnt a crack trailer.
thought they would be sneaky and show up late at night.
oh and the best part was the door, a piece of plywood padlocked closed, yep it was a keeper.

didnt take the sheriff long to move them to better faciclities

I've not only seen ,how old is you rv,i've seen :how old are you,no entry because i'm a single female .My Hybrid is checked by park owners all the time.Alot of parks in Fl. now use the 5 to 10 yrs. old non-acceptance. I was even questioned because my electric bill was so low($6.00)It's getting to the point it's not fun anymore.

Well I guess that leaves me boondocking!!!! This all makes me mad! What is it about except seeing our country and making wonderful friends and helping each other? What has it all come to? Are people really that superficial? I'm a decent law abiding, clean, considerate, mostly conservative female who tries to be caring to others and so because I drive a converted skoolie that's mechanically sound, not unattractive yet older and different I will be told I am not appropriate? All I have to say is, this is so wrong. I know some of the people with the fancy hundred grand coaches wont want to talk to me or park near me but WHY?

All I have to say is...pleaaaaaaase dont let me ever be like that.

my 2 cents

We have camped next to folks in pop ups up to Prevost and have met mostly good people. We have met a few "JERKS" in all sorts of RV's, but they are few and far between.

What we have enjoyed so much about the Texas and Oklahoma Boomers is you can belong, no matter what you have for an RV. Just behave and accept others for what they are. Shoot we even let Don F. come over here and camp with us occassionally.

Ken
