We have traveled quite a bit since then, including a summer trip all the way up to Alaska. It has been during this period of time that we have realized the Motor Home industry has changed considerably since it days of inception. There is a serious lack of places to park these new Big Rigs. Most of all the older campgrounds and resorts cannot accommodate the much larger rigs that are being built today. Most of these babies are so large they cannot get into campgrounds that were built 20 to 40 years ago. Not only that but they cannot power these new rigs. Most of us need 50-amp service now, some even needing 100-amp service with the all new Big-Big coaches. Also a lot of these older campgrounds cannot accommodate all these new coaches with 2-3-4 slide outs. Now they are talking about pop-ups on the next generation of coaches.
Sadly, most of these older campgrounds and resorts have found it too costly to upgrade their sites. A great deal of them are trying to hang in there by upgrading some of the sites by adding some 50 amp sites and cutting down some trees in order to get these bigger coaches in. The problem though is the manufactures of these new coaches and fifth wheels are producing bigger and better vehicles to the point that campgrounds can not keep up with the new demands. As a result, many of us spend the night parked in a Wal-Mart or Flying-J. There’s room there and we don’t have to unhook everything.
We have so many demands that either the campgrounds have to hurry up and catch up or the manufacturers have to slow down. Well we all know the manufacturers are not going to slow down making things bigger and better. So, we need places where we can watch our satellite TV’s, that means somewhere with no tree obstructions. We need a place where we can run a full compliment of air conditioning. We need a place where we will not get stuck in the mud or sand. We need places where we can log on to the Internet, preferably places that are upgraded to the new Wi-Fi system. We need places where we can park our Toy Boxes. The list goes on…
Fortunately over the past few years, a number of campgrounds and resorts have recognized this need to upgrade their parks and accommodate the needs of the Big Rig owners. We have also seen a growing number of developers building resorts around the country exclusively for Big Rigs. Most of these new and immerging resorts are being developed as deed restricted developments with individual lot ownership. It is a growing industry and what a tremendous way of protecting your investment. You may take a big hit when buy your coach but you can protect some of that hit by investing in one of these new resorts and buying your own lot. Once you purchase your own lot you probably will recoup the hit you took on your rig by the appreciation of the value of your lot. We now have a win win situation. Buy a Big Rig and enjoy the travels and way of life. Buy a resort lot and watch it appreciate in value.
The day will come when you will either want to buy one of these lots and then someday sell it. Some of you will want to buy or sell your lot by an on site realtor, an off site realtor, or you may want to buy or sell the lot using your own resources. Whichever method you may choose, this web site has been developed for everyone. There has never been a centralized location to accommodate national recognition of Big Rig Resorts. Use it to your advantage and have fun searching.
Whether you own your own lot or not, you will still be traveling. It is with this in mind that we have also listed campgrounds and resorts around the country that will accommodate your Big Rig. All of the resorts listed on our pages have been highly rated and have at least some 50-amp service. Many have 50-amp service throughout the resort. Eventually we will have “BigRigResorts.com” member resorts. Each of these resorts will have certain standards set by us in order to be a member resort. Such things as: More than 50% of the resort must have 50 amp service, All streets must be well lit, All streets must be paved, All lots must have paved or cement pads, Toy Box parking, Limited tree obstruction, Lots wide enough to accommodate quad slide outs, etc. If you have recommendations, please let us hear from you and email us.
