Thumbs up Could be a new Airstream park in Hill Country TX ?

Got your attention ! Just checking to see what kind of response may have a good chance of developing a airstream park in the hill country area on the Laino river, we have a large group of airstream people in TX, this opportunity may just present it self by summer at a existing park on the river so what I am looking into who would come I aways try to have airstreamers at the park Rondi and I work at, thought this will take it to the next level will work well with my airstream restore and polish I started in Johnson City so what you think ? Sean

My wife and I could be tempted to stay there, but I do have a question. I grew up in the Hill Country. Where is the Laino River?

Just kidding. Don't ya hate autocorrect sometimes? Where on the Llano River are you contemplating this park?

do not have the exact location yet but off hwy 29 between kingsland and Llano, it is on the river with canoe access will be touring it soon I am hoping it has a close by area for my shop so I don't have to drive to Johnson city to work on the trailers my customers need done, would have been nice for our easter rally but guess looks like a May river rally maybe in order, many wants us to do another central TX rally this year well I guess it will be Hill country river rally hope we have water !

Worthy cause, but if you're going to do this, do it right. Provide people with space so they aren't camping on top of each other and, if the climate permits, shade in the form of trees. The lack of these pleasant amenities at so many RV parks is a major disappoint for people like me.

Victoria,

Have you considered selling your big trailer and getting a smaller one that you could handle. Many at the rallies would be more than happy to help you set up. We have an Easter rally in April that my wife and I along with Sean and Rondi are hosting at the Roadrunner Rv park in Johnson City, TX.

They have a cabin available that is nice-I spent a weekend in it myself.

Come join us. Here on the forums it is listed as Hill Country Easter Rally.

Check it out-don't sit home.

I agree, the better parks have full hookups plus cable and wifi which is nice, big pads (paved) with patio area for the canopy pullout with good visual screening between pads. Look in trailer life at the parks with the high ratings and determine what makes a great place from a mediocre one. Folks don't mind paying more to have a great site for setting up.

I would to go to a Rally. As for selling her I could never do that. If I end up living in it I would want it's size. I just bought some Pergo to re-do the flooring so will find someone to put it in then I am thinking of getting a new A/C even though it does work just want it all new .... I can pull it but I doubt I could back it or park it...funny I used to drive a Semi and I did back it once

This location may be good from October through April but for the remainder of the season, with no shade trees, it would be too danged hot in the furnace that is The Lone Star State. Good luck.

Do it Sean, Not too hot for us Texans! And I can say I am Texan since I have now lived here for 20 years. I checked with the State authorities and that is the official cut off point. But I can never say "Native"
And just for grins, I grew up in that humidity of Virginia. Shade does not help...
I can bring shade and my unit has an AC for the nighttime. And our kayaks do well in the hot...
Build it, we will come...
