The one in Kansas has boatramps, a covered fishing dock, shower facilities, pavilions and group camp areas, and one of the 3 lakes is reserved for swimmers only, so kids can swim without danger.
Many of these kind of lots get bought and the owners fail to pay their maintenance fees, resulting in the resorts auctioning them off. I have less than 4k in all four sites, and only the one in OK has limits on stays- 60 days or 6 months during construction, but I could literally move from one to the other and never be in violation.
Downside? Here, we have genuine Winter weather, and so I keep the SB. It's on 5 acres in MO, surrounded by hundreds of acres of farmland, so it's kinda quiet
Wow, that's really interesting. How much are maintenance fees on those things?

About 150/lot. for all the 'lots' I bought, I pay out 900/year, and that includes mowing on the grassy ones.

What part of the country are you interested? We have a wondeful setup in north Alabama. I have known of folks who just built a simple metal building like an auto shop or horse barn style. Then put inside what ever you want. Good luck.

We do have a well and electric if we want it but the water has salt so you can't drink it. Most folks out there have water trucked in.

We are going to use it for dirt bike riding. Tons of wide open space but I doubt we would ever end up living there long term. We will put a small cinderblock building up for the MH and spend some time out there riding.

Texas is one of my favorite states.

Your property isn't near Cornudas, by any chance?

We have 10 acres in Antelope Acres Estates which we will eventually develop with power, septic and a little casa made of half-buried 40' metal shipping containers.

Great for a hunker-down and work on the rig place. We love West Texas.

Well when I had a sticks and bricks I had to buy a 2nd lot to hold the RV.. but that was in back of the lot the house was on so I do not think it counts (Adjcent properly, abandoned before I bought it, I gave it to the bank when I gave them the house) cost me 368 including title transfer fee).

We still have the S&B back home which lately we have not spent much time at. The summer months we are usually in Northern MI and stay at the sister-in-laws which has a 50amp hookup, water and sewer. Winters will for now be South and for what we pay for rent in the park we are in, it wouldn't make any sense to us to purchase a lot there. For what they're asking for the price of the lot if wanted to purchase it, we can rent here for the next 16 years for 5 months/yr and not have to worry about monthly HOA fees, taxes, utilities or insurance and then down the road have to worry about trying to sell it. Financially this is a much better system for us.

Escapees in Livingston, Texas has deeded lots. We were lucky enough to find just outside the Escapees Headquarters 4.5 acres with four RV FHU's and two storage sheds. The deeded lots range from folk having RV FHU's and storage sheds to full sticks and bricks.

Yep, it's east of Cornudas and AAE. It will be awhile before we get out there.

has to be at least 750sq ft and then its a HOUSE for tax purposes and insurance...and we call it a RV port and the BIG house , its two story inside pad is 25.5 x 65, rv takes up 40 x 25.5
we are in texas...north east to be exact

funny thing is we purchase done lot......now we have 6, i put my folks one tow next to us for htier rv and little house

weird thing is if you just want to put a pad for your rv and then maybe a small shed......
the shed can only be 8x10.....but if you build a garage (roll up door), then it can be bigger.
Is that a stair well on the side of the motorhome that you can use to get safely up to the higher parts? That's what I need is a guarded stair rail, maybe like a mobile home stair rail, that way I could be comfortable about getting up on the high sides to do washing/waxing and maintenance stuff. I'm scared to death of heights and hate being more than 2 steps up on a ladder.....

Thanks!!!

This place - Deer Creek Motorcoach Resort In The Blue Ridge Mountains. - outside of Galax, VA at the VA/NC state line just off the Blue Ridge Parkway sells deeded lots and the owners can build a 10'X15' cabin that many of the residents have fixed up with full bathrooms, laundry rooms and TV areas. I bought there three summers ago and built the cabin, just waiting to complete the inside this summer. Yearly fees at $900 and my property taxes are less than $100 a year :-)
