Fly In and Buy

The view from my window seat on an Airbus. This was taken last year when Lorraine and I made a trip down to Las Vegas.

Sunland RV Resorts sent me two different promotions.

One for Naples Motorcoach Resort and one for Silver Palms RV Resort.

Between March 15 and April 1st, Naples is offering a limited-time Fly & Buy offer. You leave your motorcoach at home, explore ownership opportunities at Naples, and if you purchase a lot by the end of the stay, your trip is reimbursed. Pretty narrow timeframe though. A mere two-week window.

Silver Palms is also offering a limited-time Fly & Buy offer. Their window? May 15 – September 15. Much longer.

I wonder what that means? Is Naples more popular than Silver Palms?

The pricing is always a bit of a mystery as neither park publishes their prices on their websites although some of the lots are listed on other property websites and lot prices seem to be roughly similar, around the $150,000 mark.

We might consider ownership at some point. Particularly if we find ourselves returning to the same area year after year.

But not right now. We want to explore a bit first.

In terms of a Fly & Buy promotion, I’m not sure why I would want to leave our motorcoach behind. After all, the whole point would be to experience the park with our motorcoach. Staying offsite at a nearby hotel seems almost pointless.

Of course, when the motorcoach is stranded in storage for the winter, it might be the only option if there was a desire to buy right now. I can’t imagine requesting such an offer and then having to manage the pressure to purchase if I wasn’t already sold on a lot. Oh well. Perhaps they have lots of people go down on impulse.

Here is our coach in its storage facility.

Sad and lonely I imagine.
