I just accepted my first RV today and there will be more to follow. The woman is coming out of a nearby campground that has many fracking workers staying there for the summer. Problem is the place closes in October and then they have to leave. The lady moving in has a nice looking trailer she lives out of full-time and doesn’t want to move for winter.
The cost to upgrade my pedestals is $740 but I will then be able to hook up either an RV or a mobile home. Kind of sucks having to re-do what I already re-did before but I make my money back in 3 months.
The RV residents have to pay for all their own utilities just like the MH residents. Moving an RV is obviously way easier and OH does not require an inspection. The biggest plus I see is that I can get them out much faster than MH residents. I have to have cause and a court case to evict an MH but with an RV, I can put them on a month-to-month and simply not renew their contract at any point.
The biggest challenge I see is connecting the water. The entire line is exposed right up to the home which means my meter is also exposed to all the elements vs. being under the home and protected. Lots of heat cable and foam pipe insulation are going to be needed. Suggestions welcome.
