I have been wondering for a while why certain RV "resorts" do not allow pop up campers, hybrids, or even travel trailers below a certain length. Are we non-motorcoach folks somehow second-class campers? I have a very nice 2010 Jayco 1206 PUP, one of the largest popups made, and I keep it and my campsite very neat, clean and presentable. I like some of the amenities that some of these "no popups allowed" RV resorts offer, but alas I cannot take advantage of them unless I consider upgrading to a larger trailer/motorhome.

Is there any way to appeal to these 'exclusive' resorts to let me in? Or is it a "not by the hair on my chinny chin chin" situation? sad.gif
