It's The Little Things

A sproutling by itself in the sand.

The Importance of Maintenance at RV Parks

Having just returned from an acquisition site visit, I was struck by how much the little things matter. My client is looking to purchase this park. I flew out to do the inspection and came away with a few photos.

The overall resort was beautiful, but the little things were missing.

When guests find duct tape over outlets or large cracks in the pickleball court, they come away with the option that the resort is being "Let Go."

In the world of RV park management, the butterfly effect of little maintenance issues should never be underestimated. What may appear minor at first glance can have far-reaching consequences for guest satisfaction, the park's reputation, and the overall financial health of the business. Prioritizing regular maintenance, promptly addressing minor issues, and fostering a culture of attentiveness will ensure a successful and thriving RV park that attracts happy campers, fosters repeat business and stands out in the highly competitive camping industry. Remember, it's the little things that make a big difference in creating a memorable and enjoyable experience for your guests.

A positive guest experience is a key to attracting repeat customers. Small maintenance issues that impact guest satisfaction can deter campers from returning to your park in the future. Repeat business is the lifeblood of any successful RV park, and failing to address minor problems can lead to a decline in loyal customers.
