  • Unfortunately it's not just the west coast doing it. We headed out to the Biloxi area in Mississippi for Memorial day weekend and decided to stay away from the coast at first because of the forecasted tropical storm. Our first nights stay had a twenty year rule that was waived for our new looking 45 year old trailer. In our twenty years of pulling our trailer all over the east coast, midwest and southwest we've encountered the rule numerous times but have yet to been refused a site. This past trip the manager gave me the best "excuse" for the rule that I've heard to date. She claimed that the state had regulations requiring the rule because older units don't meet newer codes on sewer, electric, or gas. My trailer has been fully refitted but every thing that we replaced worked just as well as the replacement part other than the gfi plugs on wet circuts. We have stayed on the Mississippi coast MANY times and have not encountered the rule at any other campgrounds so I call BS.   
  • The  point of the rule is to keep the riff raff away but the vintage trailer segment is making many campgrounds rethink the rule. When making reservations at several different campgrounds I've been asked to provide a picture of my rig by email or text. It doesn't bother me to do so because I'm proud of my trailer, as are most owners of vintage rvs that ive met. There really is a need for more vintage trailer/rv clubs. Once there are more clubs the rallies and shows will spread and the acceptance of vintage units will grow.

 My position is I DONT WANT TO GIVE ANY MONEY NOR STAY WHERE IM NOT WANTED. They can kiss my grits. If I'm not wanted somewhere why would I beg them to take my money NOT ME....Why would I  want to park where snobby snooty elites reside?

 NOTE I'm a free market capitalist and support any business owners their right to accept or reject anyone for any reason or no reason at all, that's their free decision. I'm ONLY saying I'm NOT going to beg them to take my money and I choose not to even attempt to stay where I'm not wanted.

 So there lol
