WiFi users reduced to the status of ‘trailer trash’
“In a move to generate extra cash and attract new patrons, a growing number of upscale RV parks are rolling out networks that allow users to connect throughout their facilities using Wi-Fi technology.
“A lot of parks are realizing that Wi-Fi is not only a luxury, it’s also a necessity,” said Randy Hendrickson, general manager of Destiny RV Resorts, which operates parks in Dallas, Phoenix, Las Vegas and Blythe, California. He said he believes offering Wi-Fi will help the parks draw a younger and more tech-oriented set of patrons.
“We have people who are actually working full time from their computer on the road,” he said. “And we need to offer a service that’s attractive to them.”
