Long Term RV Parks are a great way to save a lot of money on accommodations. It’s like paying for an apartment, but with far less cleaning and maintenance. And you get the most privacy of any option with rental camping.
Virtually every long term RV parks have been designed and built by a small group of entrepreneurs who were willing to take a chance. They had a vision about what the future might hold for travelers. Probably, they had a passion about that vision, and a willingness to work hard to make it happen. They also had the ability to persevere in the face of discouragement and disappointment – not just once, but over and over – because most likely no one told them they were crazy, instead they were ridiculed for their dream.
The first long term RV parks began as something new and different for travelers, then became popular, then became popular enough that other parks started copying them, then became so popular that they were copied by cities all over the world.
But along the way someone had to be willing to take the chance of starting them in the first place.
You may be wondering what the differences are between an RV park and a long term RV park. Well, at first glance, there isn’t much difference. Both kinds of parks are ideal for people who want to live in their RV’s full time or part time. An RV park allows you to run your generator during limited hours, while a long term RV park is for those who enjoy living without the restrictions of a RV park.
Long-term stays in RV parks are a great way to save money on your full-time RV lifestyle. The most common reason for staying in an RV park is because the location is convenient for visiting family, attending events or working in a different state or town that is not possible to go to and from your home each day. (Oil Field Workers are a great example). This is often the case when you’re in the early stages of your full-time RV lifestyle when you’re still working.
Some people stay in RV parks for weeks or months at a time when their location doesn’t justify it because they don’t really want to live in an RV. This can be inconvenient at first if long-term stays are necessary for them to feel comfortable with living in an RV.
If you choose this option, it’s important that you learn how to set up and break down your rig quickly. You’ll also need to learn how to maintain it while it’s stored at the campground.
Finally, many of us plan our full-time RV lifestyle by moving around year after year, following growing seasons, jobs or whatever else interests us. If this is your plan, RV Park living is perfect for you.
A friend of mine stayed in a long term RV Park a second time and it was for almost a year. This one was in Florida. He stayed there for about nine months.
He then got another job, which let him stay there longer, and he saved a lot money. He also collected unemployment because he was still looking for a real job, but it wasn’t much.
While he was talking to the woman who ran the office, and she said that if you were there long enough, you could be eligible for health insurance through the park. It was only about $40 a month, but it would cover things like doctor visits and prescription drugs. So I signed up for that.
