Oldie but a goodie

My wife and I just bought a 1984 Tioga Class C motor home. Its in pretty good shape. I would like to update the interior in the future. My wife and I are new to the Rv Life style. My question is with my Rv being 28 yrs old how do rv parks treat most vintage rvs. I see all the ads in magazines. all the new rigs and wonder if the new owers look down on us. Ive always heard RV people are the nicest. Just curious if you could tell me if you had any experience with this.

Congratulations on your purchase. All of my previous motorhomes have been 80's models and I have never in the past met an rv'er who had a problem with someonelse's rig but I have heard of some rv parks that limit the age of the rv. I think that those are mostly rv resorts and some luxury rv parks. I usually camp at state parks, KOA, or Good Sams recommended rv parks that don't discriminate against rv types and age. One thing that you will enjoy is that rv'ers are the friendliest people and love to share information and experiences so prepare yourselves to enter a wonderful and rewarding lifestyle. It is all about the lifestyle and not the equipment.

I have been in a similar situation as you. The first "real" rv I ever had was a Coachmen slide in truck camper. It was worn out when I got it and in bad shape but I fixed her up nice and we used it for a few years. Im sure some looked down their noses at us, but that was never a concern. The bottom line was it was paid for, was what we could afford and it worked for us at the time. NEVER, NEVER, let yourself be concerned about what others think or say, do your own thing as best you can. Now there are campgrounds that dont allow rigs over 10 years old and thats fine, if they dont want my business, I go elsewhere. I have found that many CGs taht say they dont take rigs over a certain age actually will, providing the rig is well kept. Do not worry about what someone else thinks about your rig, its how you feel that counts. Hope you have many happy and fun trips.
