Default Campground restrictions for B+

We were looking at the Travato but my 6'3" husband did not fit in the front seats. Very uncomfortable. So back to sprinters. We've been renting a Coachman Galleria and like that but was wowed by a LTV Unity MB over the weekend. Beautiful, but a bit higher, wider and 25 ft in length. Even though the model is U24MB.

Have there been places you have wanted to camp in but couldn't because you were classified as an RV not a van? Or because size limitations?

Thanks!

It's a C, not a B+. But otherwise, good question. Can't help, we're downsizing from a 45' Class A to a Sprinter B.

never even had a hint of that

in most campgrounds we are paying for a "full size" space we use 1/2 of

in some we have the option of saving 3 or 4 bucks for a 28 or 30' back in- based on availability

Thanks Mike! That's what I was hoping. What do you own and pro's/cons?

Surprisingly, the rules are usually the other way around, when the do exist. They will exclude class B RVs but not class C, which is what you are looking at.

Default Breckenridge, CO

The nicest campground in Breckenridge has a covenant with seasonal renters that does not allow Class Bs. we were turned away at the door in our 16 Travato.

Its the only one i have seen, but it could not be the only one

Wow, I find that so odd... maybe trying to keep out the surfer type vans of old? They need to update their covenants.

DW's brother is in a park in Mesa that has that rule, and he has tried to get a waiver for us to get in for a few days to visit, but no go. If we had a 30 year old, ratty, class C, we could get in without issue. Pretty common around there, he said. They seem to think all vans are ones with just mattress thrown in the back.

There are many private campgrounds that have various snooty rules. There are many that won't let you in if your rig is more than 10 years old. There are also Airstream-only campgrounds, many of which won't let Airstream Interstates in.

I will stick with state parks and BLM sites, thank you.

I actually was more concerned with the state and national parks and their size restrictions. Wasn't even considering private campgrounds when I posted the question.
