Imagine you just spent $300,000 on a new recreational vehicle. You wouldn’t want to just park the thing on the street. But since it’s so big, where else can you put it?
John Burns Real Estate Consulting named four solutions that new builders have found for RV storage, from parking lots to RV port-homes.
Reunion Pointe by Bella Terra located east of Mobile, Alabama offers RV “port-homes.” These are homes with a covered outdoor area at the side of the home large enough to accommodate an RV, but open to the air.

The builder offers a three night “stay and play” special at a sister community to introduce prospects to the community lifestyle.
