Save money on RV space
For those of you that full time and are looking to lower the monthly space rental:
Although I do not full time, for the past 20 years, I have worked on the road 4 to 8 months each year. I am at a location at least two months at a time.
I always try to find a mobile home park instead of a RV camp ground.
Why? It is always cheaper and most times quieter.
It is fairly common to find a mobile park, on the edge of town, that the owner built out behind his house, thinking the income would provide additional income for his retirement years. They are able to fund the installation of the electric, water and sewer, but run out of money to build proper roads. This makes it hard to attract many tenants. Usually there are only a couple of spaces being used and these spaces are most times family members. In the past 5 years I have paid from $ 80.00 to $ 150.00 per month plus electric.
Also look for a mobile home park that appears to be completely full. A lot of parks were originally poorly designed. Invariably, there will be a space that is physically impossible to install a large mobile home into because they can't make a turn to line it up. I found one like this in Phoenix 10 years ago, just south of Campbell. (northeast of downtown) Cost was $ 90 per month.
One thing I have noticed when I have been turned down by the manager of a park (not the owner of the park) is if I offer to pay cash, without needing a receipt, the manager suddenly remembers that he does have a space available. Funny how that works.
Anyway, hope that might help.
