Default RV Resort Coach Houses

We are looking for anyone who owns a spot in a luxury RV Resort that would like to share photos of their coach lot houses? We are trying to get an idea of the different places across the country and what they have to offer. This way we can plan for future trips to different resorts to view them in person. Thank you.

Gerry and Ira I don't personally own a spot in a RV Resort but I know there are plenty on here who do. Hopefully they will be able to share more with you. I did find this great article on the internet-

[h=1]Gulf Coast attracting high-dollar parking spaces for boomers in RVs[/h]
ORANGE BEACH, Ala. -- Situated on Bayou St. John, between some of the priciest homes in south Alabama and a stretch of several condo towers, sits a budding example of the latest development trend to sweep across south Baldwin County -- a resort filled exclusively with six-figure parking spots for luxury motor coaches.
Heritage Motor Coach Resort and Marina, with its waterfront views, cobblestone streets and gas lamps, will become one of the toniest of the area's high-end recreational vehicle resorts when it opens, an event scheduled for mid-October.


"This is not your granddaddy's campsite," said Mike Miller, who with his son Matt is selling the resort's 79 lots, which range from $159,900 to $399,900 for those nearest to the water.
Though Heritage's waterfront location is unique, it has some competition in the recreational vehicle resort business.


Construction is ongoing at Buena Vista on the Beach, a 111-lot resort on the north side of Ala. 182 in Orange Beach.


And earlier this year, Sagebrush Realty Development opened the full-service 176-lot Bella Terra on 40 acres off the Foley Beach Express. It features a man-made fishing lake, private cinema, heated pool and lots that cost up to $200,000.


A pair of Orange Beach developers, Jim Brown and Ken Wall, pioneered the trend locally in 2004, building the 47-lot Terry Cove Motor Coach Resort west of Heritage on Canal Road.
"The idea of deeded ownership is relatively new to the RV industry," said Heritage developer Duke Gibbs, 27. "You have a lot of these people driving around in their $1 million buses and they're still staying at Grandma's RV Resort with dirt paths and campers and fifth wheels."


So far about half of the lots have been sold, fetching an average price of $204,000, Mike Miller said. Each lot comes with a 275-square-foot unfinished coach house and the chance to buy one of the resort's boat slips.


Nine different options for finishing out the coach houses are offered. The prices vary greatly depending on the add-ons -- travertine floors, outdoor plasma televisions for the patios -- but generally add about $50,000 to the overall lot cost, Gibbs said.


For years there was a trailer park on the 8-acre property. After 2004's Hurricane Ivan, Brett/Robinson pitched a high-rise condo there, but never got the necessary zoning. Gibbs said his group bought the land three years ago, worked through permitting, and started building the project in January.


Miller said that the buyers have generally been baby boomers who have chosen to hit the road in retirement. Besides the moorage and the coach houses, a 7,400-square-foot clubhouse with a fitness center, small pool and second-story vistas have attracted buyers, Miller said.


"You bring them up here and it's over," Gibbs said. "You can find a condo with this view, but not a Class-A motor coach resort."

On the Buena Vista on the Beach website they have a virtual tour video of the Motor Coach Houses.

We stayed at Heritage a couple years ago and were impressed with them. Nice location but they told us if we buy a lot our kids couldn't use the coach house unless we were there with the coach. Found it odd to buy something and then can't use it? They are about 3-4 hours from our kids and would have made a great weekend place. But the resort is very nice, just not what we were looking for.

folivier that is strange, If you bought it and own it, what is it going to hurt? If they had any motorhome could they bring it and use it there? Or did it have to be your specific coach? I guess that's what you get with places like these LOTS OF RULES. It's great for some but not for others.

I agree Sean the prices are up there. They have some nice amenities it looks like. But for the price I'd hope they did.
