I don't think campground owners are so much worried about older units, as much as they are worried about people leaving a POS trailer, and then walking away. I have heard a few campground owners talk about this problem.

Or if you're in the vicinity you could drive over there and have a talk with them. They might be okay when they see your rig.

$530 a month is less than $20 a day. Pretty dang cheap.

Wow, I completely misinterpreted the title. Thought you'd found a park that ONLY allowed vintage RVs. What a hoot that'd be. Kind of a 'bring yer own' Shady Dell.

And......do you really want to be in such company that doesn't want you or your beautiful time capsule.

A high quality picture works very well. I've been placed near front of parks several times as a drawing card (1990 TT).

Rv parks are less restrictive if you are staying a couple days, much more for monthly or longer stays. From my experience.

I'm concerned about an attitude here that doesn't recognize private property rights and calls for retaliation against a business exercising those rights.

Your concern is misplaced. A business in a free-ish market should expect that the market will react to their business practices. Well-run businesses that treat customers well should do well, business that shun customers run the risk that entails. What retaliation other than "take your business to someone who WANTS business" has been advocated here?

Ah, valid point. I had seen so many of the more practical posts I forgot the original.

What RV park owner would be able to tell what year an Airstream was manufactured?
