If its their business, they have the right to set just about any rule they want..



The 10 year rule is meant to keep riff-Raff like me out..

Not a problem, Why would I want to stay someplace where I wasn't welcome...

Agree their business, their rules. Capitalism at it's finest as it should be.

I stayed their for 6 months back in 2013. Not all that special, basically a big parking lot with small patches of grass.

Only selling points I noticed were you could walk to Disney and sit out at night for the fireworks show from Disney. Big down side was listening to It's a Small World on a loop.

Show them you disagree with their policy by spending your dollars elsewhere.

I recently sold a 15yo Hurricane and it looked great, and would sit well with newer motorhomes of its size. It would bother me if it was refused because someone saw it and thought it was a piece of crap. But to reject it sight unseen just because it's over 10 years old does not bother me as its their place, their clientele, their rules. There are thousands of places that will accept a vintage motorhome no questions asked. After visiting some you may well think that having SOME rules is a good thing.

I'm with everyone saying "their business, their rules" but this is America and the OP has every right to call it out as BS. I wouldn't stay there, but my MH is also 20+ years old so my opinion probably doesn't matter to the owners.

Sort of reminds me of this: Pizza Shop Closing After Hit With Backlash For Refusing To Cater Gay Weddings - BuzzPo

First, I agree there are some darn good looking 10 year and older rigs out there. Many in fact.

However, as far as rules, there are also places that only allow motorhomes, no trailers or 5th wheels. It is their business, their choice.

The problem here is, if they allowed your nice looking older rig in, as an exception, then how do they tell the person with a rolling nightmare that is the exact same model and year as yours they are not welcome? It is easier to use the 10 year rule than it is to tell someone their heap (not yours) is an eye sore and will hurt the image of their business.

I do disagree strongly with comparing it to civil rights issues. Not even close

Have you no pride?

If/when the RV park's rules state "Only RVs 10 years of age and newer are allowed"... the standard at that RV park is this:
NO RVs OVER 10 YEARS OLD
ARE ALLOWED!

I have to laugh, three years ago I went to a local rv park. I have a 2014 Fifth wheel toyhauler and was turned away because they were changing the park over to Luxury motorhomes only. The last few years they haven't been half fulll. I wouldn't stay there now if it were free. As for the 10 year rule, like I said my rv is 2 years old but I wouldn't stay with those arrogant people anyways...

Even FMCA, (Family Motor Coach Association), the self proclaimed "Best Club for Motorhome Owners" won't take your $$ if you don't own a motor home... (but they except any motor home owner no matter how old, rough or ugly their MH is). https://www.fmca.com/join-family-mot...sociation.html

Sorta like the old Groucho Marx quote
"I wouldn't belong to any organization that would have me for a member."


It's a non issue.
Move on and spend your monies else where.

Just like Olive Garden ......I don't like their food so I don't go there
Much ado about nothing

If I wanted to commit my resources to own an RV that was less than 10 years old, I could and would.

But I don't.

I suspect that most reading this posting are in the same place. Some can afford it, and choose not to. Some would have to sell or choose not to own other things they simply feel they need more. Some may not be able to own one unless they sell their home...

It does not matter.

I believe that people need to learn to be happy with what they have, or learn to get what will make them happy. It serves no purpose to complain about other people's rules that you do not like.

If a person owns some land and wants to set rules for that land, I support them. Simple as that.

I don't eat at restaurants that don't serve food I like, or that charge too much for food I can get elsewhere. I don't buy my gas at gas stations that charge too much either.

We all make decisions every day on what we support and what we pass on, often by simply choosing where to spend our money.

If enough people did not frequent 10 year or newer campgrounds, they would change their rules. However, there are enough at this point. We also need to recognize they get to make choices too. These people may choose to live at these campgrounds just as I choose not to. Perhaps they enjoy not being in my company. Good for them. They will never know what they are missing, but We all do. Their loss, not mine.

I don't care, you can choose to take it personally, if your property does not meet someone else's standards. I choose not to take it personally. It is as simple as that.
