These days there are plenty of people in the US living in RVs on a long-term or permanent basis so what you propose could make sense to them. What you propose is really no different from the rental homes you have now except that you would be providing RV utility connections without the homes themselves, sort of a "bring your own home."

The real issue I see is how do you find your "tenants" and whether or not you choose to advertise yourself as an "RV Park." IMHO there's a big difference between being a landlord who has a handful of long-term tenants and an RV park owner who has people coming and going, etc. Among other things you would need to have someone operate some kind of office, answer a telephone line, etc.

As for long-term RV residents, I think they would be fine with you not providing any amenities since they can arrange for those themselves. Plenty of traveling RVers also sometimes stay at places without TV, wifi, laundry, or bathrooms but not having any of those reduces the percentage of the RV population who would want to stay at your place.

I hope this is the sort of advice you were looking for.
