However, I know that there are many different ways to enjoy the RV lifestyle, and that staying at an RV resort is a very popular thing to do. So I was curious as to how many of our regular readers would actually be interested in this type of place.
First, have a look at the following link and peruse their website...
Carefree RV Resorts
I'm impressed that they have a lot of different options. They even have quite a few resorts in Ontario, Canada! It's not just an American thing. And, they have some resorts that are for age 55+ (we can't use them yet!) and other resorts that are for the whole family. They call the over 55 ones "Age Qualified Resorts". Too funny. Someone was pretty creative to come up with that term!
It's a big thing in Florida. There are 36 different resorts there. Anybody been to one?
There's something for everyone in Florida...
I didn't check the cost of an RV site here, but if you have to ask, you can't afford it!
Really nice though, isn't it?
Carefree is currently running a special called “Start Your Journey with a Passport to Savings!”
For RV sites, this includes a Stay at 3, get 1 free offer. This gives you the opportunity to sample a few different Carefree RV Resorts and get a bonus out of it.
This offer is based on the number of parks you visits, not the length of your stay.
The parks definitely have a lot of amenities.
I'm surprised there isn't a presence in Arizona. And they only have one in California. Florida is definitely their big thing, although they also have some northern parks, including two in New Jersey.
And besides the RV resorts, they also have manufactured home communities. You can buy there pretty cheap, but of course you still have to pay the monthly site rental. I can see the attraction for older people who have given up RV'ing.

I see monthly site prices ranging from $350 to over $1,500 so they obviously have a wide range of places to stay for any budget.
I was surprised, but these are not "membership" parks. So there's no huge upfront fee to join anything. But, they do seem to all have the same attitude, and that's what the "Carefree" lifestyle is trying to promote.
"The lifestyle is really what sets Carefree RV Resorts apart. For those in or nearing retirement, this is their time to do the things they’ve always wanted to do. Learn how to play the guitar, join the pickleball team, finally take a class on using your new iPad… its all up to you! With our wide range of lifestyle offerings you can be as active as you want to be!"
I know that some of our readers are currently inspecting retirement communities in the Arizona area. Have any of you ever looked at some of these ones in Florida?
They do make them look really nice.
So have a look at their website, and tell me what you think.
Thanks to Carefree RV Resorts for sponsoring today's discussion!
