I'm curious about the angle here.
Okay, let's say this is accurate:
That means a person who plans to park a 30-foot vehicle in the shelter with four people inside will pay $30,000 for the space and $6,000 for
So, 1000 spaces, at $36,000 each, that's $3,600,000. That's a pretty good return on an initial $500,000 investment. But, that doesn't consider the
cost to add the blast doors he mentioned, or any of the concerns I raised above, which are going to greatly diminish that profit margin. Not to
mention, that food's only going to last so long, but if just a one time fee, how is he going to ensure the food remains fresh and rotated?
Here's the site for the Resort:
It answers a lot of my questions (except how that ONE-TIME margin is supposed to pay for all these amenities.)
One key thing though...you'll only get power for lights, not any other RV amenities, so if someone was seriously doing this, and getting an RV for
just this reason, they'd be advised to customize it to:
Use low powered LED lighting
Not include high drain appliances or devices
Have their own food stores (as that food cost is freeze dried rations)
Be a model that can expand width-wise (since cost is based on LENGTH) for more space
Assuming they are on the up and up, this is actually probably one of the best values for this kind of sheltering currently out there. Unattainable for
most of us, but pretty cool if you could swing it (especially since it includes the ability to use it all the time, as much as you like). Question is,
can they sell enough to do each phase of the construction of the amenities (and in a reasonable time)? A lot of folks aren't going to fork over the
cash until at least phase 1 (the basics) is complete.
