Default 2000 motorhomes a weekend pass my door

Approx 2000 motorhomes and caravans a weekend pass my door according to the local council who did a survey a few years ago. There must be someway I can generate an income from those, any ideas appreciated.

an idea but I suspect 99% will be on their way to/from a site or CL so will have had an oportunity to do so within existing costs.

I wonder how many would stop if you had a good quality drive though service point for water and waste
Some thing like the better aires style for a 2 quid payment
Makes you think

Passing your gate involves paying an ancient turnpike toll - 50 groats a unit oughta do it







50 groats = 1.50

Quite a few will be away from home for extended periods. Units get dirty outside and in. Recent threads have highlighted rules against washing on club sites, so how about a wash facility with Hoover unit. It need not be one where it involves work for you other than emptying the money machine that provides the electric/ water for a timed period, or you could provide full valet and earn a bit more.

Think not of making money from them and think instead of bringing them joy and happiness...

...then maybe the money will follow...

Karma...

(or sell them hand turned egg cups from Portuguese eucalyptus wood.)
