Happy Camper Club, a nationwide RV club offering discount camping to its members, has added a private, password-protected online forum for its participating members.
According to a press release, the new online service is designed to help campground owners network and share resources.
“The concept is to give our park hosts a place to meet privately, and at no charge, at their own convenience,” said Anne Pierson, club president. “There are concerns unique to the campground operator, which can often be solved by reaching out to other park owners, getting advice, or simply getting the phone number of a supplier with a great price. As owners of two campgrounds in Louisiana, we believe it will be productive and fun, and that our fellow park owners will appreciate this opportunity.”
Pierson added, “It’s not always convenient to travel to an association meeting, make a trip to visit with other parks, or schedule a conference call. This venue allows our park owners real freedom to network 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”
The forum will include a buy/sell/trade area, where campground owners are encouraged to list items for sale or trade, such as tractors, lawn equipment, electric boxes, park supplies, office equipment and computers.
Person said vendors are also invited to share special discounts for the group of owners within the forum.
