I guess maybe it is to make the people that dropped $250k on a shoddily built coach feel better about their purchase so they don't have to see a $10k converted bus rolling in with the same amenities.
We made reservations at the Desert Rose RV park in Fernley, NV for our trip up to Burning Man this year and they were quite happy to make them even after hearing about our Skoolie. The park comes highly recommended by other Burners.
But like vanguy says, if the economy doesn't star picking up, a lot of these "exclusive" parks will probably be changing their tune soon.
And a lot of these $100,000.00 + coaches will be for sale or on blocks at a trailer park, paying lot rent. We looked at a 2008 coach (don't remember the brand now) in SLC, Ut. a couple months ago. Biggest rv dealer in Ut. "Giant blow out sale-Everything must go" Just out of curiosity, hopped aboard this stick and staple. Salesman come in, tells us an "Old Couple" bought this back east, got to SLC, and wanted a bigger one. Traded it in. 4,400 miles on it. He said it sold new for $197.000.00 We could get into it for $101,000.00
I smiled and left. It seems luxury really holds it's value. They had a lot full of these they were trying to get rid of.
I don't want to park my "hand built" RV next to Muffy & Biff anyway. I'd be to tempted to steal thier shiney rims, take thier imported beer and give them a good spanking, along with the RV park owner.
