Size restrictions ...

We've camped in places that have 'age requirements' for the RVs (e.g., no RVs older than 10 years without management approval, etc.), but this is a new one to me. At a new campground in Texas, they require that towable RVs be a minimum of 24' in length (https://coastalbreezervresort.com/parking-vehicles/). Guess if one is making reservations at an upscale resort, you'd better read the fine print.

Yes, restrictions are getting more plentiful especially in FL. I almost bought an RV pad in FL at a nice park for wintering, and just happened to ask if there were any restrictions. Sent them the specs on the Escape and none of the Escape models met their length requirements.
Many parks are now Class A only or Class A and Fifth wheel with age restrictions as well. Always need to remember to ask when making reservations and have the specs ready to email them.
We finally decided to get on the ERPU lease waiting list for Escapees park for our East Coast base and we should time out just about right on the time it takes to get an offer of a site.

Thrown out

Kind of reminds me of my parting comments when thrown out of a few different Honky Tonks over the years. Not fit to print but compared the tavern to a well decorated outhouse.
I guess it’s private property and they can make their own rules seems pretty high class to me for what a campground really is, a landscaped parking lot. Just my $.02 ....... $.03 Canadian, now we’re up to a nickel.

Yeah, that reminds me of having to stay one night at Ranch Sedona RV park as all the nearby public campgrounds were closed due to Gov't shutdown. The folks next to us had a huge class A and a little Mercedes that we found out later they had a box trailer to carry it in. Those folks are where the $$$ are obviously and like this forum those parks are not a democracy. Just another reason why we love to boondock. Try it- you might love it too.

We've boondocked in Yellowstone and a few other places. What are some of your favorite spots?

On my way home this fall I stopped at Riverfront RV Park in Yuma without a reservation. The guard at the gate wouldn't let me and my new Escape in as I was also less than 24'. Even for overnight. I went down the road to Las Quintas Oasis and had a great site and a nice welcome. Seems a shame for them to turn away money when sites are empty.

So I guess showing up in a converted cargo trailer is out of the question...unless of course it is over 24 ft.
