Russell...that's because they know we Airstreamers are "special" people...besides the aluminum blinds them for enough time that we can fill out the registration form and be on site.
DW always tells me to "take the high road"...

During the Balloon Fiesta our island of aluminum was surrounded by a sea of sob motor homes, thousands of them. Most of these people never left the MH. They were inside all day with the generators running and the satalite dishes pointed upwards. At night during the firworks display I noticed that some were looking out the front windows, but still never left the inside of the MH.

We had a lot more fun!

A most a appropriate comment, considering your avatar photo . Enjoy your travels.

I am going to post here even though this thread is a bit old. The one exception I have found is Sunset RV Park in Marble Falls, TX. They wouldn't even consider us coming because our Airstream is a 65. They told me their business is good enough they really only want big rigs and old RVs aren't matter the condition. Very frustrating since they are down the street from where we wanted to take our 16 month old to go play!

Misty River RV Park in TN welcomes vintage trailers

Misty River was designed to have easy access for the "Big Rigs" yet they advertise that vintage trailers are very welcome too. They even host vintage trailer rallies there. Snubbing older Rigs,at some RV parks, is apparently more common than I had imagined. Our Avion's Aluminum doesn't shine, but it is always mistaken for an Airstream anyway. Maybe we will try that trick too!

Over here in merry old Britain my '86' 345 mo is one of two in the UK, so everyone here rich or poor looks on and smiles wishing they had one. My friend who owns the other one took it to a major festival and people were clambering to take a look. Its nice being the star attraction ! Very proud of our Airstreams

Our first RV was a 77 Barth, a big tin breadbox on wheels, which we had for 5 years before getting the Interstate. It was a great grandma-and-grandpa-mobile, but not very roadworthy. We cut our eyeteeth on it, and had a lot of wonderful times with small children, though, so it was worth every aggravation it gave us.

We got some hard looks driving it, but were never turned away from a campground. Some of those looks were from law enforcement, wondering if we had a rolling meth lab or other illicit activity going on in there, I suspect. Once they would see us, though, we never had any trouble and were never stopped or searched. We were always neat and tidy, too, which may have helped our oldie in those rather snooty RV parks. You know, the rattlettrap RV's with all the papers and junk on the dash? We weren't one of those.

More and more places are asking the year of your rig when you register or call in for a site. Personally, if a park requires, sight unseen, a certain level of "newness" to be in their park, it wouldn't likely be a place where we'd want to stay very long.

🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚
