People started lining up at roughly 10:00pm last night. Lining up to secure a rental site for the next season. Lorraine was hoping to be first in line but she arrived too late at around 11:30pm.
She was third in line.
The doors opened at 9:00am this morning and Lorraine, after staying up all night, went in to secure our site for November. This site right here, Site 90.
Difficult process. Within the lineup there were people wanting the same site number as someone else. Not surprisingly, everyone in the line knew what site numbers others were wanting.
There were a number of choices available.
48 lots were available to rent. We marked them all in black and we picked some alternate sites in case our first choice was not available.
From what I gather, Myakka River Motorcoach Resort will pretty much sellout their rental sites for the peak months of January, February and March. And they will sellout today.
Now for the big question: did we get site 90 for the next season?
We are happy. Lorraine stayed awake all night, waiting in line, to secure our site. And, being Lorraine, she had a wonderful time with all of her friends who were also waiting in line.
I dropped by at 5:30 this morning to check up on Lorraine and the rest of the people in the queue.
There were a few individuals that sadly did not get their first choice of site. First come, first serve. Not sure how else the owners could do this process.
Off to California in two weeks. Then to Canada in April. Back to Myakka in November.
With around 1/2 million new RV’s sold each year, competition for choice places to park them is becoming a real problem – https://www.rvia.org/news-insights/after-two-consecutive-record-years-rv-shipments-decline-slightly-2019-according-industry-forecast
Agreed. I have spoken with a number developers that are working on new projects for Class A restricted resorts in Florida. Looks like another thousand or so sites will be coming into the state within the next 12 to 18 months. Doubt that it will satisfy the peak demand. Best to book in Florida early even if it means waiting in line 😉
