RV Lot Ownership...

Group : There are lots of RV Resorts (eg, Florida..) that want to sell us RV Lots to use when we are away from home & so we can set down semi-permanent roots (& pay them big $$$) to use our RV's like cottages.

Now we love travelling with our Airstream, but the idea of having a place to park it...other than beside the house...so we can enjoy it during our Canadian spring, summer & fall, when we're retired in a few years, seems like an interesting idea.

Anyway, at the moment, the wife & I are considering the purchase of a 50ft lot in an area close to home, where we could set up an "RV Lot" in a little village not too far from where we live. Taxes would be about $500 per year & the lot already has a dock where we can keep our 36ft sailboat (& not pay a marina $2000 per year) so both our toys would be at the same place.

Since the village allows RV's & many keep trailers beside their homes, I've noticed that there are people staying in their trailers (boondocking I suspect) on weekends & this is why I was wondering if anyone may have done this sort of thing too.

Where in Canada? We're in a similar boat, although younger, so would love to learn more.

That sounds like a good plan, especially since you are already paying a bunch to store your boat.

Are those photos of the campsite in Ontario? I didn't realize that there were palm trees like that in Ontario.

Palm trees are common in Canada now with global warming.

Haven't you heard of the Canadian Snow Palm?


I have looked at a few strata RV communities, but am not ready to plant my Airstream (or money). Some of them are horrible; cramped together on a gravel lot. And they have the audacity to call themselves an RV "resort." (Names withheld to protect the guilty).

These have piqued some interest, though....

I see an Airstream in this one (slide show).....

We have been exposed to a few of these. Be sure to read the fine print. Better yet, get an real est. attny to read it and tell you what it says.
the money you spend will be well worth it. There are a whole bunch of things to consider, and it is real easy to get shafted. One place would not let us have copies of all doc's and restrictions to review prior to signing,,, red flag !!!
