What kind of paving is best for your RV Park Roads?

  1. Every RV park in the U.S. has one standard feature: roads. Yet there are many different options here, all with their own unique advantages and disadvantages. So what are the options for RV park roads, and what are the insider secrets on each one?

Concrete- This is the Cadillac of the industry, but also the most expensive and rarest to find. Concrete is a one-time fix for a road system – if properly installed and maintained. Perhaps the only negative to concrete streets is the extreme cost to replace or patch them if they become damaged, as well as the fact that they can begin to look ugly if there are chock full of tar seam patches.

                                                          Asphalt- Asphalt is a great product – for your RV Park, but Asphalt looks great initially, but then starts to turn grey and dry out not long after, and if you don’t seal coat it then it can start gatoring and potholing. The only solution is to ultimately repave more asphalt on top, and that’s expensive.

Chip Seal- This is a very hardy road surface, and the standard for many county highways. You lay down road base, then thick tar, (CRS2) and then finer stone on top. The pressure of vehicles on the road pushes the smaller rock into the tar, and the end result is an extremely strong road surface that actually gets harder the more it is used. The only downside to this surface is it’s more of a  aggressive surface  when you first lay it, but after that it has much the same characteristics as asphalt with a much longer life.

Road Base- This is a white stone that contains a high degree of calcium, that is commonly found as the strong surface underneath asphalt. It can be bladed into a relatively flat surface and is extremely cheap and easy to repair (you just put more down in the pothole, blade it, and you’re ready to go). The downside is that it’s dusty and rough when you drive on it.

Gravel- This is a finer stone surface than road base, and is not as dusty when you drive on it. The downside is that, since it is a finer rock, it does not compact as well and is a “softer” road surface that is more prone to potholes and washing out. It’s inexpensive to install and repair, however Most customers and bankers think that It suggest that your RV park is lacking infrastructure, and dirt roads are basically mud pits when it rains and dusty messes when it’s dry. While it’s the cheapest option of all, it’s rarely the best one, and it is nearly impossible to get a bank loan on a dirt road park.
