RV park requires pics before reservation

We called to make a 2-night reservation at an RV park near Austin. Since our little camper is more than 10 years old they required us to email pictures of all four sides before accepting a reservation. I find this amusing. It will be interesting to hear whether they have approved us.

No wonder. Some "high end" RV parks do not accept pop up trailers and/or truck campers too. I understand their policy.

Yes. I think they have a right to decline customers based on what their camper looks like.

Sure but in return ask for pictures of the manager(s) to see if you want to deal with these people.

Can't have the "riff-raff" mixing with the Prevost Class A owners after all....lol

We've stayed at a few of these type places where they're picky about the rig, but for the most part we have more fun and meet way more interesting people at the places that are less pretentious.

Being a campground in Texas, wouldn't the place be completely surrounded by riff-raff, seein' that is just about everyone from there.

*dodges, ducks and rolls running away to avoid the ensuing shots taken at me.

And I wholeheartedly agree, that these types of places to get a bunch of folks that look down on our smaller trailers, though I bet there are a few good ones too.

On the other hand, it's a park in Austin. Maybe they want to be sure the trailer is WEIRD.

We found Austin to be one of the nicest cities in Texas.
If we ever return to Texas , Austin will be on the top of our list of places to visit.
I don't know how much rif raf there is in Texas but we didn't see much if any around Austin

There's weird, and then there's WEIRD, Jim. Sometimes (just sometimes) Austin's version of weird is way out there.

Below find a photo of our Scamp13D, It is in storage at the moment and I must warn you that it has undergone a few improvements since the photograph was taken. It may appear a bit different when we arrive but I assure you it is far more pleasing in its present form.
Regards; Foppish Floyd III

I haven't laughed that hard in quite a while. Thank you Mr Foppish Floyd III. They don't know what they're missing. Tom

I guess that my money isn't good enough for the hoytoyas. That's OK there's other places.

Good to see things with the eyes on the other side of the issue. So here is a different viewpoint on it.

I think the issue with not accepting older trailers has much to do with parks having experienced situations where they get stuck with a broken down RV sitting in their facility. Then have to deal with helping someone to get it fixed or else having to get it towed away if abandoned. Every business has problems of one kind or another and this one is actually a fairly common problem for RV parks. It is really not so much about being snobbish as it is about having the business running a little more stress free with fewer incidences of being the first responder in a mechanical crisis. They are doing prevention in the one way that has been proven in the business to work best.

I suggest that you check on line at Ulitmate Campgrounds. There's some pretty inexpensive campgrounds near Houston.
