Rv owners adult singles dating
“I’ve talked to them about assisted living and whatever might come next, but [the conversation] always comes back to, ‘I want to stay here as long as I can.’” Florilow has 145 sites, 100 of which are designated for shareholders or leaseholders, while the remaining 45 are set aside for transient RVers.
The park includes all types of RVs, including motor-homes, travel trailers, park models and some mobile homes.
Ricker likes the park so much she encouraged her divorced mother and father to move there.
And while they live in separate RVs at opposite ends of the park, Ricker likes being able to check up on them, while giving them the independence they both desire.
In fact, the only other park in the country that caters to single RVers over 55 is the campground at Loners on Wheels headquarters in Deming, N.
M., Lane said, although the Deming park does not offer ownership rights.
She purchased ownership rights at Florilow two years ago.
But Manville built a new social life by meeting other RVers after joining the LOWs in 2001.
Ricker got a taste of Florilow’s internal safety net when she broke a bone in her foot last year.
She was repeatedly visited by other park residents who asked if they could help her with groceries, laundry or other errands.
What both parks do have in common, however, is a customer base comprised largely of members of Loners on Wheels or the LOWs, the national RV club that regularly organizes RV trips and other activities specifically for single RVers.
Sixty-nine-year-old Tom Johnson said Florilow is appealing to 55-and-older RVers who want an active social life with other single RVers without feeling any pressure to start a relationship with anyone.
