Not all campgrounds have the same rules, and for those who make them, maybe it's worth having a conversation explaining your loyalty with them. To date, at least.

I did make an entry to this thread just about a month ago but I decided to drop in and see where it was going.....

We are hosts for Boondockers Welcome I have decided that I will request a recent picture of all rigs less than 10 years old. I will make a special allowance for any over forty years old.

The more beautiful places to go usually don't have that rule. Amazing places I have found off the beaten path. And Oh such nice people too. It's been fun and I will never go thru building/ upgrading another new RV. That was a load of work getting it up to what I wanted.

Can anyone fault the CGs or other hosts for wanting to keep the eyesores off of their property?

Everyone loves a restored or maintained RV no matter the age. The units held together by luck tape & hope dope are another matter.

I had to stop at this thread when I read its title. I still own a 2010 Ford E-Series Van, which is 11 years old and I still use it for RV camping trips.

Those parks that only allow newer rv’s are for yuppies only, you don’t want to be there anyway.

I doubt anchorage is the kind of place that would have a 10 year old rule; it takes a special kind of moxie.

Most of the places I've come across that has this rule are full of the "Get off my lawn" "No kids in the pool" old folks.

Matt, I might get in where you can’t as mine is three years younger than yours!
I have been in a number of parks where I have seen them looking past me then when parked and looking over the rules seen the 10 year rule.

But as campground crowding continues and parks are sold to new owners I expect to run into being turned away at some point. It’s their option and will just move down the road. I have had mine for 21 years and not going to change now.

Highest amount I ever paid for an overnight stay, the sewer hook up was 3-4 feet from the neighbors picnic table. Could not wait to leave that place after dumping when they were having brunch. Couldn't help the time as we had to get going.

When leaving I noted the large area available where they could have spread out those two sites and made them much nicer. It's weird they let utilities dictate this horribly close layout.

I cannot express, after staying at several nice state parks forest service campgrounds most all my camping life, how bad I wanted to get out of there.
