Many times figuring out how to invest your money calls for discernment. Do you invest in stocks? Real estate? Or purchase franchises and hire staff to run them for you? There are many options to diversify your investments. One avenue to explore may be to invest in a family campground, or a campsite franchise?
One of the major differences in the overnight guest business model versus the traditional RV park model is the ancillary income earned through families spending within the park. A REIT in the Jellystone Park franchise derive 24 percent of their income from ancillary spending. In 2016, revenue per available room (REVPAR) was up over 13 percent as REIT’s benefited from an increase in cabin rentals as well as discretionary spending within the park. Buying a Jellystone family campground can be immensely profitable. The RVIA (The Recreational Vehicle Industry Association) estimates that there are as many as 30 million RV enthusiasts, including RV renters. That means that there is a large market that can be tapped into with the right campground franchise.
Returns on an RV park investment can be very substantial, according to some owners who have seen returns up to 10% to 20%+ on on their money. That puts them among the highest-yielding of all real estate asset classes.
