I've heard of and read about this policy many times but have not encountered it myself. I'm surprised I haven't though. On my last trip down from Alaska to California I had called a park in Leavenworth, WA called the Icicle River RV Resort. I had never been there, knew nothing about it, but it was a convenient stopping point for me for the night. When I called the previous day the host I spoke with was super nice and although they were "full" due to the Washington State Autumn Leaf Festival taking place that weekend, the host promised to find a space for me. I told her I would be a late check-in, and I was, arriving well after dark.
Upon arrival they greeted me warmly, checked me in efficiently, and personally guided me to my space and spotted me as I backed in. Incredibly nice hosts which was very welcomed after the long day's drive.
And a hellacious drive it was, all the way from Prince George, BC and through some really nasty weather. I was beat. My truck was filthy. And my Bigfoot
, after being dragged all the way from Alaska, must have looked like war surplus.
That night I didn't really look around the resort after I parked. All I knew was the place was crammed full and I could hear the rapids from the river somewhere behind my space. I was completely beat so I got set-up quickly and went to bed.
The next morning I got up and opened my curtains, looked around and realized I was in a sea of quarter million dollar Class A RVs. There were also some Class C rigs, some fifth wheels, and a few travel trailers. But all of them were new and spotless. I can only imagine what people thought upon waking up and peering out their spotless windows
trying to figure out what time of the night me and my forlorn rig showed up to take a nice spot among them.
I'm sure there were some comments made, although not at me directly. The people I encountered were actually quite nice, and upon seeing my Alaska license
plates, were more interested in hearing my story than complaining about my humble, dirty trailer.
Anyway, I lucked out and my one-night stay there was pleasant. But I can imagine how the "serious" Class A types would want to keep the "riffraff" out of their regular domains.
