Never been asked , but if I were to be asked that my rv is to old , i’d tell them to stick it where the sun don’t shine.
I’d take my business elsewhere.

Our 2003 TT passed the 10 year old mark awhile ago. We've never been asked its age. We've never been asked for its "registration" - meaning the actual paperwork that shows its year. We get asked for its license plate number all the time.

Has anyone ever posted in these forums that they've been turned away after arriving at a campground due to the age of their camper? I know people post about the rules, and people post about someone they heard about getting refused, but I don't remember anyone here with personal experience about it.

I wash my camper once every few years (lol! I do keep it halfway decent looking) and don't worry about it.

All it needs is the AC hanging out that back window.

DH and I have a 2006 Class A - we keep it in very presentable condition - would NEVER claim it wasn't over 10 years old - can tell simply by its design! Don't think a Georgie Boy Pursuit has been produced since maybe 2008? Anyway. Most of the CGs we have come across with a "10 year" rule have been priced beyond our willingness to pay! We like the "bells and whistles" of a "Resort", but can easily do without. No point or reason to argue - we just go somewhere else! Love state parks when a site is available, but also very willing to use a privately owned park. One thing we have learned inover 45 years of RVing - flexibility is the key!

My TT is a 1993 . I am just a weekend camper that stays close to home. I've used this TT almost every weekend in the summer for the last 10 years. It's been through 2 hail storms and has lots of dimples. I do keep it clean and I keep any rust that shows up painted right away. I imagine that it would not be allowed at most of the places many of you frequent and some people would look down their nose at it.

To heck with them. It's paid for.

I stay at local public parks. Though it is getting difficult to get into them.

I would love to get a Newer one. (I can afford it) But, I can't find one within 500 miles of me that would work as well for me as the one I have now. The prices right now are just really crazy for them too.

I will be using the one I have for one more year.

Our Class C is 14 years old. The best way to avoid the 10 year rule that we have found is to steer clear of any place that they call a "RESORT". There are too many Federal Parks, State Parks, Military Parks and RV Campgrounds to choose from. Get out and enjoy your travels.

That is purely age discrimination. Threaten to sue them on that ground.


When did they ratify the "RV age discrimination" amendment to the constitution?

Wow, and to think my RV was 12 years old when I bought it! I guess they saw me coming, since it was basically "valueless"!

I stayed at a nice county park near Wenatchee this summer that had a 20 year old rule. My 2001 Mobile Scout was just over but it is clean and no problem. Manager said they were "just making sure the place didn't turn into Seattle".
