We bought you e-book and had a copy printed and sent to us also. I have read it a bunch of times and also sent it to my accountant. We are in the process of buying a campground and found information we would never have thought of on our own. I found the book very informative and helpful.
Thanks so much for the book. I read it quickly and it has almost all the answers to questions we had about purchasing an RV Park. This is a valuable resource, as we have tried to find a book on purchasing and operating an RV park for a long time. We had located a park that we were interested in and met with the broker last week. We were well versed and had appropriate questions to ask.
I thoroughly enjoyed your book. It is an excellent compilation of ideas for people interested in purchasing campgrounds and rv parks. I would recommend it to any of my buyers as a resource tool.
