Background: We own ~6.5 acres of land in rural Texas hillcountry with a very nice view of the Guadelupe river and river access for swimming, & non motorized boating. We currently use it as vacation property & get out there a few times a year. We have hookups (power & water) for 2 RVs and a septic system. It's a great place to hang out & relax. This is a popular area for a variety of vacationers interested in outdoor activities: playing in the river, wildlife, hunting, bicycle riding, motorcycling, etc. There are also options for shopping, antiqueing, wineries, etc. It's located near Kerrville, not far from San Antonio and Frederickburg and some really neat natural areas.

I've been researching the idea of renting to RVers for vacations, sort of like VRBO but there is no house or cabin or permanent structure. It would be something between boondocking and RV parking - very small, private and secluded but with some nice amenities. Sort of like camping at a state or national park, but with no other campers around you. It would have to be for short term rental only, no longer than 30 days at a time due to our property owner restrictions.

My internet searching hasn't revealed anything similar to this concept and my RVing experience is limited to going to our, or other private property. My question is: would RVers pay to visit a place like this with basic amenities?

I appreciate any and all thoughts and feedback. Thanks!

I would love it, but hope you are covered with LOTS of insurence.

How would you advertize this place? Sounds interesting. I like the area. Pictures would help.

You bet they'll (RV'ers) pay. Sounds good to me as we've entertained doing something of the same idea. You'll need to form an LLC in the name of your intended campground, establish some usual CG rules and find commercial insurance...then go for it. Good luck.

Happy camping!!! See y'all down the road!!!

Naturally. Is there anything else like this out there? I don't know, I'm honestly asking. Timing is pretty much year round. Pricing... is too early to define yet. Is this something RVers are interested in?

Absolutely. We have experience with running a small business requiring good insurance for potentially risky activities. This is an area I will need to research more if it looks like there is sufficient interest to justify the time/effort.

Right... there don't seem to be any established modes of advertising for this type of place. Hence my question here. Is there a market for it? Why, or why not? I find it hard to believe that I'm the first person to consider the idea. What are the barriers?

I'll post pictures asap.
