Heather Blankenship was on a road trip from Florida to California, stopping at RV parks and campsites in between driving. She saw how busy these parks were and thought it would be interesting to own one. On her way back to the east coast, she ended up buying a campground in Tennessee for over three million dollars. She had no experience, no team, and no money. Now, that campground is worth over thirteen million dollars!
Although Heather was just 26 at the time, she was able to quickly adapt to the learning curve that the campground presented her. She grew her knowledge and skill set and now oversees around thirty million dollars in RV parks and campgrounds.
We talk about the many different streams of income that a campground or RV park owner can cash in on, how to score financing when buying commercial properties, what to look for in your due diligence phase, and how to underwrite these massive deals. For beginner investors, this can seem like a huge task, but Heather proves that even with no experience, you can put in the work to make massive financial leaps like she did.
