While RVs come in different sizes, you can expect them to be anywhere from 20 feet to 50 feet long. If you are thinking about if you should invest in an RV park, you should know that you are required to have parking spots that are at least 20 feet wide. In general, an RV park should offer water and electrical hookups. Sometimes, they offer sewer hookups.

RV Parking at a Campground
When considering if you want to purchase a campground and allow RV parking, you should know that generally, a campground is going to provide a larger space for an RV. This is because you provide space for the RV and grilling, hanging around a campfire, and other activities that people do while camping. Some campgrounds set a limit of the maximum length of RV for which they will provide parking.
Start with the Basic
