10 Year rule

Hi guys and gals,
My wife and i are taking a 14 day trip to the gulf @ Port Aransas, The park we are staying at required pics of my rig, I am not new to rv's by no means and i do understand the "10 YEAR RULE", My rig is a 1999 dutch star, cummins on a spartan chassis, and super clean, and i absolutely love it, I have never been embarrassed to pull the ol'e girl up anywhere, My question is this:
Do you guys with new rigs get offended when a 20 year old rig pulls in?
I'm certain i am not the only person that has had this question, I would really love to hear some real answers on this.
Thanks in advance
By the way, They did approve the coach!!

We have stayed beside horse trailers without any second thoughts so for the most part I bet the majority feels the same

Cousin Eddie is out there and therefore lies the problem

From the understanding that I have gotten from park owners and managers is that the rule is in place IN CASE someone rolls up in a rig that is a "refugee from a wrecking yard". It is to give them an out so that they are not sued for discrimination or some other type of lawsuit. Sort of like the sign "we reserve the right not to serve you"
I have not seen anyone on here that has said they were refused with their older rig.

We've parked next to all types of campers throughout the years. The rigs will never offend me, but the people sometimes do. I don't have an issue with the ten year rule, even if I still owned my 2005 Diplomat, as my coach always looks nice. I understand why the rule is there and I'm glad many places are implementing it.

10 Year rule

We have stayed next to some beautiful, well maintained 20 plus year old RVís. Enjoyed talking to owners, they share wonderful stories.

Offended by the age of a coach? Absolutely not! I don't care how old a coach is and, in fact, I am impressed when I see a "vintage" (better term in my view than "old") that has been well-maintained or restored. That includes a beautifully restored 1928 custom "motor house" that I encountered a few years back. Stunning!

What does offend me is a coach in obviously poor condition full of folks who lack any of the fundamental social graces. Coaches leaking oil, loud music at all hours and undisciplined kids running amok are some of my pet peeves, along with people strewing garbage about and dogs running loose...and doing what dogs do...in my space.

If your rig is good and you send pictures then they say no you really haven't missed out on anything.

This.

Dont care how old a rig is or even what kind (5er, TT, A, B, C). As long as its in good shape and the people are polite, respectful and clean, weíll all get along.

If your motorhome looks good I would say itís a 1999 this year and a 2000 next year and so on and so forth............
I do understand why they have implemented the rule for all of the negative issues named above. And I also have been told that itís an insurance issue for the parks.

I would like to understand what "liability" an RV park owner would have in renting a patch of concrete to a 10 year old coach vs. a 9 year old coach?




The only valid reason I can see for such a rule is in the ownership resorts where each lot is individually owned and then rented thru a central reservation team. I have read thru some of the homeowners docs for a couple of places that restrict owners of lots to 10 year old coaches. I do remember one that would "grandfather" a coach if you acquired it before it was 10 and retained it past that date.

Well tim
In my opinion it doesn't matter what the owners motives are.

Its their decision totaly. Not Mine.
Their investment, their $$$$s
Not Mine.

Customers are guests and only guests.
Not board members, not managers.
Not owners.

But guests and Customers.

We have always furnished pictures and have been accepted.

If you have ever owned rental property
And want to maintain a specific
Level of propert value.

You screen applications very carefully.

Some landlords dont care ?
Most do.

Some campground 's dont care ?

And some do.

I want to stay where they do.

Even if the rental rates are Higher.

Just my opinion.

If my math is correct, that strategy might work for an RV owner attempting to deceive a park that has implemented a 20 year rule.

Park management sees RVís all day, every day. Itís kind of their thing. The experienced eye will be able to identify a 20 year old coach quite easily. Even one that is well maintained.

Dishonesty could be met with directions to the exit.
