Client Comments

“Salish Seaside RV Haven is a top notch facility.”

Very spacious and clean sites, great clubhouse, and very friendly and efficient staff and management (aka Tom). I feel at peace instantly when I arrive and there is something spiritual about this location that nourishes the soul – rain or shine. Thank you so much for sharing this land with all of us.

————————————————————————————————————————We got more great feedback from guests from New Zealand on how fantastic our little Park, Arrowhead RV Resort, in Ely Minnesota is! Thank you Rich and Barbara Stockwell! You helped us do it right! Val Medanich Hansen♡♡♡

We have recently used the services of Rich Stockwell and his associates at RV Park Consulting. We had no previous experience in building a Resort. They designed a layout that has large spaces with easy ingress and egress, green spaces, plenty of room for dog walking or people walking, and areas for activities. They also provided us with contacts for supplies and services.
We are pleased because we are getting a lot of compliments from our campers on our Resort. We would recommend them to anyone looking to build a modern facility.

I started working with Rich Stockwell nearly 4 years ago, with an idea for a new RV park in the New Orleans area, and I can say nothing but great things about the service and professionalism he provided in making this idea a reality! He took my vision, idea, and location, and put to paper a first class modern RV Resort design that exceeded my expectations. His extensive knowledge of the RV industry, and what today’s modern RV guest expects when selecting an RV park, lead me from the initial site selection and feasibility stage, to the “tying up the property” stage, all the way to the “permitted not yet built” stage. He was there for every step of the process, and understands the time constraints levied by the governmental agencies during the permitting process. Government mandated revisions are completed in the fastest time possible, at one point working straight through a weekend to meet a 9am Monday morning deadline that was imposed on us. His guidance led me to a fully permitted and ready to build RV Resort. He shoots you on a straight line, honestly telling you that ideas you may have are not feasible for the operations of the business and why. I look forward to working with him in the next processes of the development and for the success of my ultimate goal: “Opening Day”! Aron Andrus Belle Cypress RV Resort


Rich Stockwell is the most knowledgeable guy in the RV field that I know. He has always been helpful and timely with any questions or concerns I have about the industry. He has done a feasibility study and other work for me and it has always been professionally done and represented what the real market is. His work has been on time and very reasonable. Any time I have a question about a development or the industry Rich is the first person I call.

I just wanted to thank you for being a part of our RV park project.  We were one of the first ones to arrive down in the South Texas oil field boom known as the Eagle Ford Shale.  While many other parks have popped up in the area, ours remains at the top in terms of occupancy.  There is no doubt in my mind that this is because of the excellent design and layout that you and your staff put together for us. People move in quite often from the other parks in the area to enjoy the spacious lots and ease of access our park has to offer that others do not. Thanks again, and I look forward to working with you again in the future!

“Hi Rich,Well we have a year under our belt the park turned out great. Have a look Our occupancy rate was usually over 80 % from mid-May to the end of October. We do have a dozen or so staying throughout the winter, running water included!

“It goes without saying that the help you and Barbara have provided to my project is invaluable.  I recommend you all the time, you are at the top of your field and if there are any skeptics I’d recommend they do a Google search for “RV park consultant”!  I wish you continued success and it is my pleasure to have become acquainted with and be lucky enough to work with you and Barbara.”

“As the owner and developer of Bella Terra of Gulf Shores, a Class A RV only luxury motor coach resort, I had the pleasure of conducting business with RV Park Consulting, Inc. and specifically Rich Stockwell. Rich and his company were instrumental in developing both the concept and overall design of this project. Today the resort is recognized within the industry as one of the top 5 resorts in the country and we have received the highest ratings designations from both Woodall’s, Good Sam Club/Trailer Life Directory and Wheeler’s RV Guide. We consistently receive excellent reviews from guests who visit the resort and have dozens of testimonials posted across various RV related web sites.  Additionally, Bella Terra has been recognized by the various local business chambers as well as the local community and government. In May 2008, Bella Terra of Gulf Shores receive top honors by the City of Foley, AL with it’s Beautification Award. I would highly recommend RV Park Consulting, Inc’s services to any owner / developer who is considering such a concept.”

We have opened the Pavilion and pools and moved into our new offices. This RV Park is nice and you should be able to use as springboard as it is mostly your design.  We should be complete in 4-6 weeks. The RV community appreciates the large sites you designed and the ability to get in and out of their sites with ease.”

“Rich evaluated my property and was able to quickly sketch out a plan for an interesting RV Park development,  Although I elected not to proceed with the project, the advice Rich provided was quite useful in enabling me to evaluate all of the options.  I found his work to be timely and cost effective and I would recommend his services to other property owners considering a RV Park development project.”

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you again for help in making our dreams and visions become a reality. Since first meeting you in the spring of 04 we have come a long way on our project. I am happy to inform you that just yesterday, 10/21/04 our project was approved unanimously by the Police Jury and the Planning and Zoning Board. Your guidance through this crucial stage is invaluable. Actually, all the work we have done with you up to this point made the permit process flow smoothly. The Business Plan, Business Model, Site Plan and attention to every detail to ensure a quality state of the art development has excited not only local public officials, but also the  citizens, business owners and RVer’s of Southwest Louisiana. We have also received several proposals from local bankers, they are even excited, which sure helps in negotiating terms. All of this enthusiasm is directly related to the professionalism shown during the last 6 months of planning. We plan to break ground around the end of the year and open for business in the fall of 05.”

“P.S. Thanks for all of the RV Industry contacts you have provided us with, they have all proved to have quality products and services as well as good pricing, sure has saved a lot of time.”
The team has decided against building an RV Park. We have returned to our original idea of residential development. I would like to personally thank you for your help. The information you gave us was key in our decision making process. If it wasn’t for your professional opinions and advice, we would have traveled down a path that would not have been in our best interest, and would have potentially had very negative impacts on myself, my family, my parents, and the team. I have told allot of people about you and your service. I hope you someday see a return from me “spreading the word”.
Thank you again,”
