Uh, how does that change the age of the coach?
Meanwhile your coach does not appear to be 10 years old, while ours is 14. (We have never been turned away.)

Either way, doesn't matter, my point was age should have nothing to do with it, as has been noted by dozens of posters.

Re-read the post about the smoking/coughing camper next door!

BTW, a "Heart Blesser" (aka: a "Bless Your Hearter") is similar to a "Have a Nice Dayer".... or a "Praise the Lorder". :-)

Except that "heart blessers", are so often also "cheek pinchers"...sometimes they even escalate to actual "cheek kissing"

When I was growing up we called ours "Aunt Bessie"

Meanwhile, I will be staying at my vintage campground...............




Did you run over that cart, or did it fall off your trailer?

Just as you said: I didn't specifically mean you although I did use your post to answer. Just that there are some out there that seem to think anyone who owns a $400,000 rig is a snob and everyone else is inferior.
No offense meant!!

Don't feel too bad, but in the future, whenever you hear someone at a check-in desk at an RV Park start using the "It's a State Law" line, odds are they may be talking out their back end. It's at that time, you ask them for the identifying number of said law or which code section it's under so that you can properly inform yourself of the full extent of any other relative sections.

Usually, they'll start choking at that point.

Btw, never ran into that one before, and I live in Oregon .

I usually check in if they want me, they get my money, if they don't, I motor on, but given that my RV parks to Walmarts ratio is at like 3:57 thus far from my latest trip (3 rv parks, 57 walmarts/Truck Stops), I don't run into it being an issue terribly often.

There should be a State Law against people saying "it's a State Law" when what they really mean is "we want you to do it this way".

I just love to trip people up when they quote that at me, one of the fun things about having a smart phone handy these days .

In Oregon, our laws are usually headed like this: ORS 431.862, which can be easily searched.

DH and I are full timers in our '87 Aluma Lite...we recently decided to settle in Lufkin, TX for a long term stay. CG choices are very few and far between...drove the TOAD to check them out...pulled in to Bollier's RV Park. Place was filled with trashy permanent residents. The CG manager asked us what year, make and model our RV was, when we told him, he said that given the age of our RV, he would have to take a look at it before telling us if we could stay there or not, since they had a restriction against RV's older than 10 years old. We were speechless.

They wanted to make sure that your rig was trashy enough, don't want you to upstage the community. What a crock!
