Restrictions on older RVs in State Parks

Recommended Posts

I am selling my house in WA and going full time about the end of May. Will buy MH then but I heard something about state parks in Oregon not allowing RVs that are more than 10 years old. I was considering something around 12 years old but now I'm not so sure. How can they enforce a rule like this if you have a sharp rig thats more than 10 years old...

 

Anyone heard of this rule?

I seriously doubt that this is the case of state parks or other public parks. It is sometimes the case in private campgrounds and sometimes the deciding factor is someone there seeing your rig. When I was early in RVing I had a 20yr old TT that looked very good. I called ahead about a private campground in California and they asked if my trailer was older than 10years and was turned down sight unseen. There will be some private parks that will be strict but again a lot may not ask if you are there and they can see the condition of your rig. No guarantees though so if you drive a distance have a back up plan. This is frustrating, but it is the way it is.

That's not true of Oregon state parks - or any other public park. It's 'some' private RV parks that have this rule - a small minority. There are enough choices of RV parks out there that you don't have to stay in one of those.

I think that you have confused a rule that does occur in some commercial destination parks with the state parks. We have been campground volunteers in three different Oregon state parks and no such rule exists, there or in any other state park system. There are commercial parks with such a rule, usually only applied to RVs which stay long term.

My 2001 C is only 5 years old as far as any commercial park knows. Like someone elses, mine will stay 5 years old indefinitely.

Also I don't believe any state park as such a rule.

Some private parks and resorts have an age rule but I have never heard of any state parks doing this. I am a volunteer in a state park in South Dakota and we never ask what the age is of a vehicle.
