We have never been turned away in our 1999 Bounder. You just need to stop using those parks. Chuck

No need to lie, those parks never ask as they have no such rules, obviously the places that do, don't need you or your 50 year old money, since your 5'er has wheels, take it down the road to a place with no such rule, and welcomes your old money.

Sorry folks but integrity is like virginity... once it is gone it never returns. If you lie over such a trivial matter it makes me cringe to think how you you live your life day to day.


While I applaud your presumed ABSOLUTE honesty with everything in your life, I feel, that is not only very idealistic, but that has also been a detriment to you and your family both, maybe un-knowingly.

I consider myself a generally honest and ethical person, but circumventing something that is unfair, unethical or maybe an outright lie itself, by lying is perfectly acceptable. Fight fire with fire!

White lies aren't a gateway drug to greater things. They could be I suppose, but that would be like saying drinking a beer is a surefire path to alcoholism. So with your take on lying, I hope you don't drink ANY beer!

While I don't agree with such a rule, I understand the reason. Trying to keep the real junk with home ACs hanging out the RV's windows out. They would be much further ahead saying anything over 10 must be OK's by management before a site is assigned, because you can have a 20 year old rig that looks brand new, while someone else can destroy a brand new unit and turn it into trash in a year or two.

If the park has a rule like that it would not be the type of place I would want to stay at anyway. I use public parks and have never been asked.

P.S. I will come pick up your worthless camper if you want me to.

About 15 years ago I was asked at a PA state park what year our then 1986 Toyota based Dolphin Class C was. At first I was a bit concerned about an age rule, but it turned out the check-in clerk's sister had a similar RV and he just wondered if they were the same year. Haven't been asked since...

Lie to them about how old your camper is...just like some of them lie to you about being an "RV" Resort...which is only the same RV park as always, just added the word "RESORT" to ad more money for your stay there...

We have always kept our vehicles in top condition. But we have also kept each one over 10 years. It has never been a problem for us, we have never been asked the age of our camper. Granted we prefer to stay at State and National Parks and have less than no interest in staying at Resorts. Please do not let this type of thing end your traveling and making memories with your travels.

We started raving last year and have only been to the same place twice so far. We usually stay at KOA’s but not always. I have seen on the internet a few places with a 10 year rule but they always say to send pics and they might ok your rig anyway.
