This is exactly the reason.

So perhaps you can explain why a skoolie is rejected but an older BlueBird Wanderlodge is allowed?

While we have to use private parks for long term parking, we PREFER public parks. For starters, they are more like what I think a campground should look like (former tent camper). Next is they have no problems with allowing an older RV or skoolie in.

You DO NOT need a rule like that... It is a private business and as such has the right to refuse service to anyone they deem undesirable. They're high prices alone are a deterrent to keeping some of the so called rif-raf out. Not everyone can afford an newer model motorhome, that doesn't mean they're trailer trash. I've seen real trailer trash in $350,000 rigs and I've actually moved to get away from they're loud, foul mouths.

Wait till they decide to change it to a 5 year old rule... a lot of you will change your tune.

It's not any different then being turned away from a Best Western Motel because your CAR is to old!

Trailer Trash

Recently in a cross country trip, we pulled our '99 Pacer into a park that said 10 years or newer. The first 10 or 15 spaces were monthly, road repair workers-after seeing the condition of the trailers and how poorly they took care of the area, we did a U-turn and went to the next park down the road.
I guess the year was more important to the owners than the condition of the property, the phrase "Trailer Trash" was here.
I have never been turned away because my rig is over 10 years.

Not everyone WANTS a motorhome, regardless of financial status. I daresay that individuals who can afford top-tier full-timer 5th wheels and the associated tow vehicles could afford a motorhome if they wanted.

Why on earth would you tell them it was ten years old or older. Tell em it's eight years old. Unless it's a piece of junk, they will never ask to see your registration. Just play the game and stop getting upset over stupid rules !!!

I am glad this is no issue for me. I usually go to state parks or most of the time boondock in various friends acreage.

I would not be bothered to get turned down though. Life is too short. I would just smile and drive away.

Before we bought a newer coach a year ago we had a 34 year old GMC. It was well kept and looked good. We never had any issues with anyone telling us our coach was too old to be in their park.

as a former ontarian who got the hell out of the country in 1958.i invite you to come south and enjoy real america . what you are describing as typical south sounds more like wapole island or manatoulin .
