This discussion showcases exactly why we look for RV camping spots where there isn't -> yelling little ones, loud music, loud talk around other campfires, electric bikes/carts carts buzzing past and ... where there isn't ANY RV AGE LIMITS.

Here's an example of where we like to camp when we can:

For a little perspective, we have 18 campground reservations from now until April, and none of them have shown the slightest interest in the age of our 21 year old Class A. I do know that two of them would care if we wanted to stay longer than 30 days, including one that runs a soft credit report and a criminal background check for longer stays.

Beautiful. Where is that?

My first guess was Cuddeback, but the hills in back look too tall.

If memory serves me right - Death Valley on a 4x4 road, I think.

We're planning on boondock camping there again this spring with friends in our 24 ft Class C RVs ... I hope it's open for boondock camping then. I do know that Scotty's Castle is closed, but that's just a place to visit in DV.

I have a 15 year old 5th wheel in perfect condition, but I am no longer allowed in RV parks - the same parks which allowed me in last year. They're all citing "the 10 year rule." Therefore, this 5th wheel serves no purpose anymore as I cannot travel with it. I am done RVing. Rant off.

You state perfect condition, is it clean, and waxed and looks new? I honestly think most 10 year rules are to cull out junkers.
I stay mostly in state parks and not an issue, I can see if it is a high park, but not a standard park.

The "10 year rule" now includes anything 2012 and older.I have a 1998 Jayco Eagle 243RKS, and on a scale of 1-10 I would give it a strong 7+.
I was not allowed to return to an RV park in Rockport TX that I have been wintering at since 2016 because of new ownership and their 10 year rule.
