I've been looking at opening an RV park and this sounds amazing,any tips on how a guy gets started would be appreciated.
 
I've got plenty of land,a 2 acre pond and a covered gazebo by the pond with enough power to have a band.
 
We hosted a few RV's last year for the eclipse(no power or extra amenities) but met some great people.
 
Thanks.

sell someone the land. Have them build it for you. Then watch as they host a once in a lifetime rock festival that concludes with the owner going bankrupt. Then you eventually buy it back and turn it into a very successful family ran business. Never mentioning the festival or anything to do with it. Just leave odd things around for people to wonder about. Like 100 ft speaker towers and a stage that rotates so 3 bands can play or get ready.

But that's the long game.

Do you like summer?

If so, this is the worse idea ever.

My summers are already focked up because of the fireworks business and ever since hosting people during the eclipse my wheels have been turning on doing something with this land for additional income.

A good friend of mine owns a resort.  He tries to take Mondays off.  The key werd is tries.  He has absolutely no time for himself or his family in the summer and it's starting to take a toll on him.  I see him selling in the next 5-10 years and he's only 36.

I was thinking more along the lines of 10-12 pad rentals and offering fishing.Kilroy's comment about the live music reminded me of the gazebo area,but yeah overall I don't want a full blown resort.

With a new kid due this week our vacations will be limited to local Michigan attractions.  I'm thinking about getting an RV like this one.

 

https://www.generalr...2qbxl-879608-29

 

The wife would want new one because reasons. I am aware of the massive depreciation of new RVs.

 

Any tips or suggestions? Uncle Eddie jokes are welcome.

 

 

Dude, craigslist has tons of them available that have already taken the depreciation hit. RV trader too.

If they held another election on November 9th, Trump would have lost the popular by 10 million and the electoral in a landslide. So many people didn't bother voting because the media was telling them Clinton was a lock by 10 points. And Trump's approval rating dropped from 47% to 37% just in the weeks between the election and inauguration.  Unless he can get someone to reign him in, I doubt he'll survive the four years, let alone any chance at being reelected.

At some point you will get it thru your head that...
A. You don't speak for everyone and don't understand the word literally
B. I don't give a flying Fock what you think of me. I will post my opinions and back them up as I have.

If that kisses you off...Fock you, I don't care.
My life outside the board is fine and none of your damn business.
Worry about yourself. Take a break since you don't care and think nobody cares.

Cool.  Best time to buy would be fall/winter so that's the only advice I have for you. Good luck.  :cheers:
