These RV Park Amenities Top Class A Owners’ Wish Lists
Class A motorhomes offer an upgraded experience from the typical RV, so it makes sense their owners may have different expectations for RV parks. Instead of roughing it, these types of travelers seek a full slate of amenities, including 50-amp electricity, good water pressure, speedy WiFi, and smooth roads within the park. At the campsite, Class A motorhome owners often look for a deluxe patio. On-site restaurants, pet amenities, and well-stocked camp stores are also appreciated, as well as other resort extras, such as recreational and entertainment facilities with activities.
