I have been a full time Rv'er for 10 years now and would not change it for the world.....BUT
There is a major problem with RV Parks that seems to be growing by leaps and bounds. One starts this practice and now it seems as though "all owners" of RV Parks are adopting this Policy.
I own a 1993 Travel Trailer (Terry Resort)that is in excellent condition (to the point of being restored) and I a being rejected and refused by numerous RV parks around the country because my "rig" is over 10 years old. I also had one gentleman tell me that he would only take rigs that were 15 years old or newer.
I feel that this is total discrimination! How can the owners of these parks make that kind of Policy? I realize that these parks are "privately owned", but I feel that ALL RV'er's should find a way to have this practice stopped.
What's the difference between saying that I cannot stay in a park because my rig is 10 years old, or I'm a woman/man/black/white or Mexican?
Please tell me your thoughts on this aggravating subject.
For instance. I tried to find a 'full-time' RV Park in the Coos Bay, Oregon area and all parks are telling me that I cannot stay there because of my older rig.
I feel this is TOTALLY wrong?
How do you fell about this practice.
Is there something that we can do to stop this?
This is NOT right!
