My wife is having surgery the end of this month. Called a number of campgrounds in Phoenix and could not get in as our MH was to old. Is this a common problem?

I haven't had any problems yet , but I understand it is becoming more and more common . Apparently a lot of the higher end parks have a 10 year rule .

I've heard that if you just show up and they see it is a nice coach , they sometimes make exceptions .

These have been around awhile, I think they are kin to the "we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone" signs to protect the prejudiced.

Good luck

After 40 years of RVing this the first time I have been asked. I had heard of it, but not experienced it. I did get a spot by sending pictures of the Barth. In all our years on the road we almost never made reservations. We went for free when we could and paid when we had to. But Marleen is having surgery in Phoenix and didn't want to motel it. In fact we were planning on just staying in the hospital parking lot until we now need a/c. What's also amazing is that most of the campgrounds are full.

My hunch is that it depends on the type of ownership of the location. My hunch is that "sole proprietorships" care that you have the money for overnight camping. In some places, the owner "sold shares" of a luxury high end RV resort. This would be the kind of place that snowbirds drive to, for spending the winters. Part of the way of keeping the image of luxury, is by filtering out riff raff, average families with young kids, Dead Heads driving converted school buses, and stuff like that.

I once stayed in such a place, and I saw the manager getting reamed out by a well dressed man, screaming and pointing at the converted school bus that had just pulled in, with a guy with long hair, a woman with a hippie look to her, and a bunch of shoeless kids running around. Quite a sight, it created a lasting memory for me.

That guy then will go home to his gated Mc-mansion community and $1500 a month Home owners Association fee, that will not allow his $500K RV in his driveway!!!!

I had this happen when I had my Barth trailer, they were afraid that it was gonna look like trash and they didn't want that "image" I guess. I sent them pics inside and out and they were fine with it. Trash and classic is tough distinction if you don't see it for yourself. I now have a 1976 GMC and I get the same questions.

And sometimes it is only ourselves who see it. "One man's trash is another man's treasure."
Your unit looks beautiful, but our Class C probably fits into the "shabby" category to most non-Barth-owners. We are working on it...
