I just figure it is their loss and move on. Life is full of things to worry about. This is not one of them. Lots of other places to camp. Happy New year

Never seen one of those parks since I generally stay in campgrounds but MOST of the ones who have that rule use it as a means of keeping someone out for OTHER reasons (some good and some not so good). I would just avoid them if I ever come across one though my RV is not even close to the limit. I don't go RVing to BE a snob or be snobbed.

You'll fit right in with the toyhauler crowd.

I remember one RV resort we ran into in IIRC FLorida years ago with the ten year rule as well as about 50 others printed out on paper and you had to check off yes or no. Things like pets, how many, what size, children, how many, what age, length of RV, age of RV, and so on.
Took about 10 minutes to fill out the form and another 5 minutes for their Inspection of the Coach. After all this the dip wad tells up we are acceptable, BUT they are full up for the next month.

They say you learn by your mistakes, in that case I must be a genius.

What, no blood test?

All kidding aside, there's something a little bit creepy about the rigamarole you describe...and then for them to tell you there's no room after you'd "passed muster" is weirder still.

The mistake you made was even filling out the form. I would have taken one glance at it and told them that they were not acceptable and left.

You can make up whatever year you want your RV to be! As long as it is well maintained and looks ok, it is your business. I would personally avoid any place with this rule.

Many parks do not enforce the rule if the unit is neat looking and well maintained. They are trying to keep the ratty looking units out.


X2.

In todays economy where fuel is so costly, and CG fee's are almost as high as a cheap hotel, the CG's really can't afford to turn up their noses at the clean older rigs that many drive.
