Hi,
We are new to this forum and would like some info from anyone interested. Basically we have a small (17 acre ranch) between Huntsville and Livingston, Texas, and maintain 4 rental mobil homes along the east side of our property. They are well maintained and recently the oldest of the 4 has vacated. It is on a cement slab and shaded with oak trees. My wife and I are discussing whether we should update and re-rent the trailer or remove it and put in two rv spots on the slab. (we have always had an interest in this type of business)
The water, electricity, and sewer would have to be converted to rv, but it is all there. We also could open the back yard to the rest of our ranch for a walking trail, as well as our fish pond (about 1 acre) Without getting to wordy here we are trying to find out if this is something that people would be interested in, or not? We would like it if we could get long term renters) This is not a club med but it would be very nice country living and close to a town with all the amenities most country people would want and we could incorporate any ideas and basically custom design it.
Would campers be interested in this quiet, private type of setting or do most want to be around a lot of similar type campers? Any info any of you have would be appreciated. Thanks

You would have to spend a lot of money to get anything other than people who want to live in a mobile home. Anyone living long term in an RV is either going to be looking for a social setting or a specific location. There aren't too many looking for really cheap rent, location and amenities be darned. To find RVers cost advertising dollars. Better to just run a local ad and get another renter, IMO. If you start to build an RV park, you will need way more than two sites to make it profitable, and you will need permits, build to codes etc. It is an expensive proposition and doesn't lead to instant returns on investment. Good Luck
