I have a park with a bunch of empty lots in an area with a lot of tourism and high demand from RVs. My park is built as a mobile home park and doesn’t have any amenities that an RV park has, but trying to bring in some RVs for half the price as other RV parks might still be worthwhile.
There’s a problem though: I know absolutely nothing about RVs.
I picked up the RV university home study course, but most of the course is focused on buying and selling, and not much on the nuts and bolts of managing the day to day of RV parks. I’m mostly interested in items such as:
-How to keep the manager from stealing
-How to handle utility use (we have master metered electric)
-Whether it might be best to only open up to month+ long rentals, or to allow overnight stays
-Given that I’m not a ‘real’ RV park, should a website be enough to drive traffic, or should I take other vital marketing steps?
Does anyone have any advice on how to get up to speed on questions like these? I’d hate to get my otherwise good manager corrupted by having her skim off $25 nightly RV rents.
