I am a owner of a RV park and have read through most of the postings in this forum. I have considered free wifi. I think there are more factors involved. One of the main factors is location of the park, is it a remote location where satillites are required to receive a signal or is where a DSL or cable line available to the property. We have to use satillites which is very expensive therefore we charge for wifi. Guests need to consider this before demanding free services.
A couple of posting here come to mind. Is if fair to have free wifi and charge the same space rent to the person who doesn't use it or do I give that person a discount. I say no. If a park offers options when you arrive pick the ones you want to pay for them. If they charge for cable and you have a satillite do you need the cable, no, so you don't pay for it. If you have you own internet satallite do you want wifi, no. Pick the from the options offered and pay for them. One posting said they were at a park that had free wifi and the park had $50 router off of a computer in the back room that worked perfect. Is that a secure conection?
Another issue is most RV'ers traveling more than a week a year have a pocket full of discount cards. Good Sam to Passport America, AAA, etc. all wanting a better rate and full survices included. So everyone throw away your discount cards and pay the published rate and I will give you free wifi.
I read your comment with respect to WIFI, paying for this service or be part of the camping rate, well, I might be crucified by the other campers but I consider WIFI as additional service and d because not every one wants it, it should be considered as separate charge, therefore, the basic rate should be lower; what really upsets me is when the camp owner advertises Internet and/or cable and/or etc.. and then the service is not there or yes there is the system installed but it doesn't works or works poorly.
I am a Canadian snow bird that spends 4 winter months in Florida and we had internet problem all the time, the corporation is advertising the internet facility, we pay for it and didn’t work most of the time.
If I may provide you with a suggestion from a consumer part, be honest with the RVers, do not pretend to provide what actually is not available and if you provide extra service, charge for it .
If I may add and RV resort should provide, as part of the cost, clean washroom and shower and lots levelled.
