RV ing with motorcycle????

I have a question to ask! What are the rules with rv resorts and motorcycles? I booked a reservation at a resort in SC and they told me that the only time that they allow MC is doing the annual bikeweek. Is this the norm for all rv parks and resort? I'm planning on buying a Goldwing theewheeler when I go fulltime ad pull it for my get around transportation. Give me some feedback on this subject.

First one I've heard off not allowing bikes.

I am at a very nice resort this week Aztec in Margate, FL and there are several here.

Interesting they won't allow a legally licensed motor vehicle

I have had no problems in my first two months.

I was reviewing a number of Class A (I'll call them super or snob) resorts in Florida. I don't remember which, but there was one that prohibited motorcycles on premises.

I wouldn't worry about it being widespread. As I research my next year and a half I have looked at a lot of resort profiles and this was the only one. There are a lot of toy haulers out there....so plan on it and have a ball.

We have carried a motorcycle around for about 6 years now and the only parks we have been in that do not allow motorcycles are in Myrtle Beach.
If I remember Apache Pier is OK but the other private parks are not.
You have to leave them if you are going to use them at their non secured office area. No exceptions.
They set the rules you have to live with them or move on.
I am surprised when you write that it is OK during bike week because I though that was when and where the problems occurred and why they made the rules. when talking to the staff.
I guess Money trumps the rules sometimes...
The other place we were turned around was trying to enter the Harbor area at Hilton Head Island. The Marina RV Park was OK.

DW and I have spent time in many RV parks with our Harleys. Both are fairly loud, especially compared to Goldwings.

We usually ask in advance if the management has a problem with us riding in and out and almost every time the answer has been "not at all. We're glad you're here".

Some of these parks have been pretty upscale but none were "snooty".

There have only been a couple times we were told to honor curfews or noise limits, but still were welcomed.

That said, probably the next park we go to will treat us like the proverbial red headed step child.

I have never had a problem with Parks and my Harley. They all have rules regarding speed, sometimes safety equipment, along with keeping vehicles off the grass and hiking trails.

We went round the country last year and did not find one that would let us bring the bike into the park. It would not surprise me that there are a few that are not allowing bikes as there are a few apartment complexes and a lot of HOA's that won't let bikes nor trucks park in them. We just spend our money where it's wanted and don't worry about the others.

I have a motorized bicycle that I can peddle or run on a 2 stroke engine that is kinda loud. I haven't taken it to any parks yet. I wonder what they will say.

Just pedal 'til you're off their property. Whenever we are in a park we try to idle our bikes or even coast them as much as possible just to be good neighbors.

I think that is just a Myrtle Beach, SC policy. Motorcycles are not allowed at the hotels either.

For 9 years(99 to 08) I traveled from May through September pulling a 14' enclosed trailer with either a Yamaha Venture Royal trike or a HD FXSTI inside.
Never had a problem with any campground. From FL. to Maine to IN. to CO. and many states in between them.

I went to visit a friend at a N. Fort Myers FL. campground and no bikes allowed there. Back in the 80's when traveling on the bike a CG in the east only allowed bike to be pushed in & out of the campground.

And one in WI. no bikes allowed.
I found another campground less then 10 miles away that would, and it was less $$. So the no bike one did me a favor.

If they say no bikes then they will be another campground in the area that will.
On the bike I did all 48 lower from "83" through "89"
