A reader named Roy left this comment last week to one of our articles. Like many other RVers, he is concerned about the increasing shortage of available spaces in RV parks. Here’s what he wrote. What do you think? We invite your comment.
“Growing lack of campgrounds will become a major issue. More CGs are turning all or part of their space into ‘permanent’ sites for park models or semi-permanent placement on leases or space purchase. Across the country, opening CGs is cost prohibitive. The requirements for new CGs is so intensive that no one wants to invest for little return.
“Increasing code requirements are placing many older CGs in no other alternative than to close. Older CGs may have ‘grandfather’ clauses but it also means they cannot sell or ‘upgrade’ their properties without meeting new and costly codes.
“The only thing that seems to be growing is the number and size of RV storage lots.”
