If your RV is too old to enter your favorite campground, imagine how frustrating that would be. It is very likely that this scenario will come to pass, which may surprise you. Even though vintage RVs are becoming increasingly popular, there are still some campgrounds that refuse to accept them. There are several high-end campgrounds that refuse to accept RVs, no matter how well maintained or how in good condition they may be, simply because of their age.
According to drivinvibin.com, the ten-year rule is enforced most commonly in Florida and Arizona, although some campgrounds enforce it across the country. The rule is listed on the majority of RV parks’ websites and is outlined on their terms. Although camps claim to enforce the rules, it is possible that they may not be as strict as they claim to be, even though they claim to be very strict. It is stated by Drivinibin that:
“Almost every RV park that implements the 10 year rule also allows exceptions for it. In our experience (owning in vintage RVs for 5 years), we’ve never been turned away. Most often RV parks will ask for a picture of your RV. They will either allow or deny based on the picture.”
According to a survey conducted by the website, 88 percent of RVers disagree with the rule. RV owners say that there is no foolproof way to eliminate RVs that are in poor condition and unattended. Park owners use the rule to remove RVs that are in poor condition and unattended. A survey of RVers about the 10-year rule found that 82 percent believe if the RV doesn’t meet the park’s requirements, its entry may be denied.
