For our second month south, we will be moving from Myakka River Motorcoach Resort to Riverbend Motorcoach Resort. Riverbend is located in Labelle Florida and it is only an hour or so drive from Myakka.
We will be checking in on Wednesday, December 5th, Lorraine’s birthday. We are there for one month departing January 4th, 2019.
Here is a satellite view of the property. From this perspective, the place looks huge with 315 sites.
Our lot, should it hold, is located at the top right of the property. Here it is from a closer angle.
It is a pull-in site facing the water. Lots of shoulder room on that site.
50 amp service and, hooray, Internet service (DSL) to the coach for $30 per month — only available for stays of one month or longer.
Shifting into the peak season sees a pretty steep increase in monthly pricing. We have spoken to a number of Class A parks in Florida and they have all told us the same thing: they pack things out in the first three months of the year. The market is clearly willing to pay.
Canadian dollar is dropping these days so our first year out is going to be a bit more expensive than originally planned. I just hope the loonie doesn’t crater to 65 cents or so.
I remember going into the states many years back when our dollar was basically a peso. Not much fun.
I found this video about Riverbend. No sound but it does provide some excellent visuals of the property.
We will be spending one more month in Florida and it looks like we may not have a confirmation for the next park for a few weeks yet. We are on some waitlists as some of the properties determine which lots are available to rent. We have been working through a list of 8 motorcoach resorts. Some really nice properties to consider.
And then we make our booking for our stay in Indio, California.
Where will we stop on our travels from Canada to Florida and from Florida to California and then back to Canada?
Still figuring that one out.
