Hello all! I just joined the forum officially but have been learning so much from all of you that I feel like you are already friends! I'm still a wannabe but hope to change that later this year. One quick question-I think someone said that 99% of the campgrounds won't allow fgrv's as they are too small. I'm a little concerned as I will be a new camper and think regular campgrounds would be best at first. Anyway, thanks to all of you for your wisdom

Not true.

My 13 has been everywhere, in Forest service, county, state and private RV parks.

Some private parks may be a bit snooty and only allow the bling bling mobiles, but those are not the norm.

This subject has come up here before, but usually as campgrounds not allowing old trailers, more than small trailers. Some certainly do have strange rules (and some rules which make some sense after consideration, usually involving tents or tent trailers), but to allow some hardwall travel trailers and just not short ones would be pretty strange.

Certainly at Canadian federal parks, and I would guess federal, provincial, and state facilities all over the continent, sanity reigns and our eggs are welcome. The couple of private campgrounds I have tried also welcome all sizes of trailer.

If anyone doesn't want my Boler in their campground, I don't want to do business with them anyway!

Now if you want to see a really annoyed prospective camper, how about the guy who buys the 45' Class C on a big truck chassis for more than my house is worth, then gets turned down at a place which only takes Class A motorhomes. What good is out-spending your neighbors if it isn't recognized?

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Hi, Jane & welcome. We wish you luck in your search for the Egg just right for you!
We are in our 3rd year of enjoying our Scamp 13 (and our first year of full-timing ... YAY!). We generally stay in state park CG's, but have not experienced any 'rejections' at commercial parks yet. The only disappointing exception was with Escapees Co-op parks, most of which require you be officially self-contained ... they define this as having a holding tank larger than 10 gallons. The 'blue-boy' portable tanks don't qualify here.
When you find your FGRV, you will LOVE it , BRAG about it , and ENJOY every mile Take care, L 'n D

I have reservations for a rally (with a different group) in 2 weeks at a campground that is part of an Indian Casino Property. The reservations clerk did not flinch when I said it was a 1978 vintage unit. (I told him that mine was a Fiberglass Airstream). He did ask if I was "Fully Self Contained". The rally leader stated in the announcement that this is an "Upscale Family Resort" and we needed to obey all park regulations...

In my travels, since I acquired my Bolers, the only sign that I saw at a trailer park was between Reno and Sacremento, that only trailers less than 10 yrs. old were accepted. ...I stayed there overnight and had no one approached me about age of my 74 13' ......suppose that they didn`t want any decrepit units there and this was how they could ask someone to leave.......otherwise I had no problems.......usually stay in private sites or also in provincial or national parks when in Canada.....Benny

There are RV "resort communities" that don't allow trailers or RVs shorter than a certain length or over a certain age. I came across a Florida park listing that wouldn't accept trailers of any type, conversions of any type, RVs under 34 feet long or over ten years old. They aren't the norm, but they are out there.

You probably didn't want to stay there anyway, let alone pay the daily fees for a slot there.
