RE: Do Thousand Trails/Encore parks RV age discriminate?

Yes, I see most Encores in AZ are “age quality” (AQ). All the TX Encores are too. The trails collection adds non-resorts in some states too. I don’t like leaving messes around so I doubt I’d have any issues with being told to tidy up around my site. I always pick up after my dog, even in places no one is around to see if I don’t.

RE: Do Thousand Trails/Encore parks RV age discriminate?

No, you would not have any problem in Thousand Trails Parks with the age of your Truck or RV. We have been members for over 35 years and really like being ably to make res even tho at times we drop in without res and never been turned away if just for over night Admittedly my trailer is currently in “turn away” visual exterior condition (dirty, a broken window, tarped until I have enough dry weather to do all vents) but such things will all be corrected before then. It’s a work in progress. I already patched over the old horrible leaking, broken TV antenna holes. Plus the black water tank vent has been replaced. So yeah I’m putting money and work into making it nice again after horrible neglect. Needs ceiling throughout and insulation but it’s aluminum framing so it’s not rotten or caving in like a wooden frame one would.

RE: Do Thousand Trails/Encore parks RV age discriminate?

Right, like nobody on this board ever posts things that don't really answer the question. And it's discriminate, not descriminate. I can delete my post if that will make you happy. Oh the shame!!! How will I ever go on!!? I made a typo on the internet!!!! Noooooo!!! Oh, there. I fixed it. Problem solved.

RE: Do Thousand Trails/Encore parks RV age discriminate?

Tha does not answer my specific question about TT/Encore parks.Ok. I had no idea what a TT park was. You'll get a lot of answers that don't answer your question. Which is annoying. Why answer if you don’t know what you are answering about?

RE: Do Thousand Trails/Encore parks RV age discriminate?

Most parks do not discriminate. Some high end "resorts" do. We do not belong to any Thousand Trail style parks. We did but never again. They discriminate against those of us that do not make reservations. We like to travel without reservations. What annoyed me once when full timing in a 78 class B (white, not 70s yellow, and very cool looking retro wise) was an Rv park who’s site showed 20-25 year old rigs in the photos. When calling they had a set in stone 10 year rule. Really? I go post 1 star reviews on Google maps for such places telling they do that. Reservations are ok with me. It means I know I can get in. I just work around it time wise.

Do Thousand Trails/Encore parks RV age discriminate?

I am a full timer with an 87 truck and an 81 travel trailer. Neither will ever be new again but I take reasonable care of them. They don’t look like beaters, just the age they are. Would I generally have much trouble in TT and TC parks? I’ve read only sparse info on the subject, some being from 9 years ago.

RE: Does length for sites include tow vehicle?

Try going here before you book a spot. https://www.campsitephotos.com/ They don't have photos of every CG but it's worth a try. Unless they have free ones too it won’t be too helpful. Freecampsites.net has user photos some. That’s my main go to. I use satellite and street view when possible.

RE: Does length for sites include tow vehicle?

The downfall on me getting this larger trailer is I cant go everywhere I used to now... Sad... Check my profile for a pic. I was full timing in the camper shell on the truck. I had a cargo box on the back for my generator and other gear. Now I have the long trailer. It definitely changes some places I can go. Although, I did often stay at Walmarts, truck stops, rest areas, etc. I almost never pay for camping because why? It's not needed unless you need gobs of electric and water. I might even cancel my gym membership I only use for showers because a lot of them have parking lots that I almost couldn't fit even the truck+cargo box into. It'll have to wait until I get a proper water heater though. A previous owner put a 2.5g electric only one. That isn't much of a shower. Bare minimum is about 5 gallons, based on using a one of those solar camp shower bags this past summer in a shower tent.

RE: How do you figure value on an old trailer in poor condition?

I paid $500 for my 81 Aluma-Lite 30' needing pretty much everything. The ceiling is mostly gone including insulation from previous roof leaks. Yes I could have saved money and bought something better probably for $1500 but I wanted something right then and I don't mind doing dirty work. I'm doing everything myself so it's not so bad.

RE: Repairs - what do full-timers do?

I fix it myself if at all possible. The only time I really had to put my old truck in a shop while on the road was in Colorado for a really bad off carrier bearing. I didn't have my travel trailer yet at that time, so the truck was home (the bed camper shell). I was stressed a little about that, having just replaced the passenger side window in Laramie, WY, that mysteriously busted out while driving down the road. I wasn't sure if they'd get it done in a day, so I got a Motel 6 room (no pet fee and size/breed doesn't matter!) along a bus route in cause I had to use it. Turns out it was the minimum required to fix it, the bearing itself, the following day. So I had a good night's sleep for about $40. All the other issues with the truck I've had (alternator, glow plugs, etc) I did myself. Of course I do my own brake work too so I'm not scared of such things. Regarding my trailer, I fix everything it needs myself. $100/hr RV repair is insane.

Does length for sites include tow vehicle?

I'm new to RVing with a travel trailer, but not RVing in general. When places say max length (ie: 25') does that include the tow vehicle too? I'm guessing so. I've only ever RV'd with a Class B and truck camper thus far, so I honestly never paid any attention to such things. I could fit most anywhere. But it's a whole other ball of wax now with this 30' trailer plus a 20' truck.
