RV Pad

My wife just looked at some land that we absolutely love. We would like to first build an RV pad with water, sewer, and electric. Has anyone done this and about how much are we looking at? RV is. 40ft 5th wheel.

We need more information before making even a wild guess at cost. Will zoning laws let you do this? Is there water sewer and electric adjacent to the property? We found a patch of land we wanted to do this with but getting electric to it alone would have cost more than $250,000 dollars. Sewer would have been septic tank. Others with rv pads or small cabins in area were hauling water in and using generators and or solar for power.

Well, I had my cement pumped in because I didn't want the cement truck coming up on the driveway with a boat load of cement aboard. Pumped cement cracks, not enough gravel aggregate and too much sand. I poured over a gravel bed that had been in place for 2.5 years, and that I had parked the motorhome on for most of that, so the base was not the issue.

There is alot of work to be done; driveway, trenching, grading, electrical, water and sewer runs of some undetermined length. Septic or sewer? You'll likely want some storage there, maybe a shipping container, will that be on a pad as well. Shade? I'll bet you'll eat thru most of 20k pretty fast, wag only.

There's and electric like at the front of then property. Well has to be dug as well as the septic tank put in. I actually ran into the owner of the adjacent lot and his estimate for a contractor was 50k for the road, well, septic, and electricity. Can have the RV pad for 1yr and then have to start building the house. Just don't want to pay for an RV park and also the land mortgage.
