While a great place to visit, the Escalante area is pretty much off the beaten path and it seemed to me trying to run a specialized business like this park was a risky venture. Too bad he couldn't make it work and we talked about going there, but never got around to it.

In my travels around the country in my not-an-Airstream trailer I have to say as a percentage, I see very few Airstreams. I would think that to try to run a park being totally brand specific would make it a tough go. I talk to a lot of CG owners in my travels, and from I see, there aren't too many of them getting fabulously rich at this. I'm sitting here now in a CG in my journey south to a warmer climate, and there were only five guests here overnight.

The CG of this thread sounded like a fun place. Maybe some new owners would open it up to other brands. Hey, you know, some of us are good folk too !

We swung by in 2011 and were impressed with the execution of the concept at that point. However, after the drive to Escalante across eastern Utah, my wife and I became sceptics about the potential customer base. It is way out of the way, truly the boondocks!

Sounds like a Chevy Chase Wally World deal. Sorry folks but the park is closed (said with the famous Moose voice).
