I have a larger park with almost 50 empty mobile home spaces.
The park is located in a area that gets a lot of RV traffic.
We don’t have any amenities for RVs, and the lots aren’t pull through as they’re designed for mobile homes, so our park is less attractive for RVs compared to the dedicated RV parks.
RV parks are charging $300-$450 monthly in the area. Right now our lot rents are $190, and are going to get bumped up to $250 per month over the next few years.
As our lot rents rise, I’m considering having offering a reduced rate for RVs. Let’s say our lot rents get to $230, I would still leave RV rates at $190.
The reason for this is RVs are really valuable to the park as it doesn’t use any resources for us to get them move in, and since the park isn’t designed for RVs I’d imagine we’d need to be a fair amount cheaper to be attractive.
Has anyone with RVs done anything like this before and encountered any push back from residents or elsewhere?
I think it makes sound business sense, but I’ll admit it could be perceived as unfair to have an RV paying $190, and the identical lot next door is paying $230.
