I think the 10 year rule is pretty dumb, but not my cg and I've yet to run up on that rule. I've got 5 years before that rule applies to me but like others said it never will applie cause I won't even try to get in. If they worried about people bringing in old campers and not wanting to leave then make a rule for that. Most cg's I've been too are at least $40.00 a night, that would add up quick if u were trying not to leave. I like too see all kinds of campers, rv's.... What I think hurts the cg is when you get there to find that half or more of the staff live there in their campers and some of the cg's that mix weekenders with people that leave their camper there, needs to be seperate section for weekenders. Just my 2 cents, I'm gonna have fun regardless of who's next to me or what kind of camper u have. Just be happy your there and same for the guy next to you!

Sounds like a great park. Let us know which one it is. Many of us are always looking for parks to visit where the park is nice, the pool is clean and the park is full of happy people. If a 10 year old rule keeps out people who have lost their homes, their jobs, and their pride (your descriptions) then I suspect the rule will become much more widespread. I don't want my parks filled with unemployed people with no pride and I suspect that if they told the truth, most RVers don't want to be in parks that cater to that demographic either. Again, my congrats to the park' ownership and management for operating what sounds like a quality and successful park.

I defy anyone (well, anyone not a rabid Airstreamer) to tell how old an Airstream is without looking at the title. My uncle's is old (1980, I think)...but I suspect if he said it was a 2002, nobody would think otherwsise!

Went to check out another park here in phoenix yesterday to compare facilities.Drove around the park,clean,well kept,nice pool,happy campers,and looked pretty full.Went in the office for additional questions,and there question to me was,is that your truck? and what year is it and your trailer? first question! not hello!.Why i asked(knowing why) said you must have a 10 year rule! and there responce!yap!
We all know about the rule,but with the country going thru tough times,and may people loosing homes ,jobs,pride,and many buying rv's to live in.Most of us won't go out every 10 years and get a new rv,or truck.Possibly these parks will turn one to many rv's away,and not meet there yearly costs,and either change or go bust.
If the first words out of their mouths were 'is that your truck' and 'what year is it' my first instinct is to wonder what was the condition of your truck and camper.
No disrespect intended, and maybe yours looks awesome, but it just seems that if it were an older very well maintained unit it doesn't seem that would be the first thing they asked.
And I think everyone sympathizes with those who lost jobs or homes and must live in an RV, but I certainly would understand why an RV park that caters to vacationers would not encourage or even permit the persons who are living in their camper to come live there. RV parks are not that kind of establishment. There are other places that they can stay if that is the situation (and those other places are likely much cheaper).
I have no problem with that rule. My coach is now almost 20 so I guess I won't be getting in. I will go where I do fit in. I certainly don't have a right to tell them to let me in only the right to stay out and not give them my money. So no big deal

I have a large lot in a North Palm Springs RV Resort. The have a 10 Year Rule but also allow older RVs and 5er's that are well maintained. As well, rigs that are less than 10 years old may be barred if are not maintained.
Who wants to be parked next to or look at a vehicle that resembles ***** or damaged and not repaired on purpose disregarding its age.
The question I have-how common is this? I personally never came across a campground with a ten year rule although I heard of them. Is this rule seen mostly in certain parts of the country?
Not sure how common they are, but i I've come across one when we were searching for CGs and parks in our state. It looked nice and all, but isn't a place I'd be upset about not getting into. If not mistaken I think they even have a size minimum...no smaller than 26 ft. if memory serves we just barely met the size minimum and at the time the camper was only two years old, definitely met the age requirement, but we still were not interested.
