Want your own RV park? How about for $17.8 million?

By Russ and Tiña De Maris

“See the curtains hangin’ in the window
In the evening on a Friday night
A little light a-shinin’ through the window
Lets me know everything’s all right

“Summer breeze makes me feel fine
Blowin’ though the jasmine in my mind”

Oh, that old, “can’t get it out of your mind” tune by Seals and Crofts. If you’re a ’70s music fan, you may even have the 45 in your collection still. But there’s another Summer Breeze that’s been blowin’ through our minds. One that kind of makes us wonder if some folks are maybe, say, out of their minds.

It’s the Summer Breeze RV Resort Portfolio, “Consisting of three RV parks with a total of 316 lots located in the Houston, TX MSA.” (metropolitan statistical area)

Yes indeed, if you’re coming home from a hard day’s work, and you need a little summer breeze to help you kick back, maybe it’s time for a change. Imagine, you could become the proud owner of three RV parks, including 249 RV sites and 22 cabins.

Think of the joy you could have, jumping out of bed every morning, fresh and revived, ready to deal with the crowds that will be rolling in your gates. We know this because the real estate brokers tell us there is a, “Supply/Demand imbalance in the region’s RV market leading to increased occupancy and rent growth.” After all, or so says the glowing advertisement, “Summer Breeze RV Portfolio gives investors an opportunity to take a significant position in the Gulf Coast Long Term RV market. Due to the resurgence of oil production activity, Houston has seen significant investments in refining and export related businesses.”

Did we read that correctly? Significant investments in refining and exports? Maybe that translates, the oil guys and longshoremen need places to stay in their RVs while they work. Surely that explains those, “High Quality Amenities with all three properties having a pool, hot tub, clubhouse and laundry facilities.” We can only imagine the fights breaking out over the wash machines between work shifts.

But still, this may be the place where you can really make an investment. Why not unpack those CDs that have been gathering dust in the bank all these years, or take an early draw on your IRA. After all, the asking price is a chill $17,800,000. A little quick work with the calculator says that’s less than $57,000 per RV space. It shouldn’t take much of a sweat to get your investment back in no time.

You know, I think I don’t mind coming home to the curtains hanging in the window on Friday night. Instead of cleaning the swimming pool, or refereeing fights over the triple-loader wash machines. For now, my savings account is safe.

Russ and Tiña went from childhood tent camping to RVing in the 1980s when the ground got too hard. They've been tutored in the ways of RVing (and RV repair) by a series of rigs, from truck campers, to a fifth-wheel, and several travel trailers. In addition to writing scores of articles on RVing topics, they've also taught college classes for folks new to RVing. They authored the book, RV Boondocking Basics.

Folks, I have camped in my Aliner at the KOA north of Carlsbad Caverns, which was 90% oilfield and mining workers. No fights, no loud music, by ten pm it was lights out and quiet. Restrooms were clean, people were friendly, and dogs rarely barked.
