Ohio RV Parks, Campground & RV Resorts
We first met when you gave a development workshop to our 20 Group 3 meeting here on our campground a couple of years ago. We liked what we heard, retained your firm, and began looking at our goals, potential of our existing campground operations and available land for expansion. While working with you, we developed a multi-year vision for our business expansion and upgrades that tied to a phased land plan for development of new sites and for the reconfiguration of many existing sites. This will allow us to build our transient/overnight business while maintaining our seasonal business in a more efficient clustering of different categories of guests. Your overall knowledge of the RV campground industry is certainly apparent and your background in the construction and engineering aspects of a campground have kept our local engineers on track as far as phasing, capital expenditures and approval priorities are concerned.
We certainly will continue to work together as we head down the road defined by our masterplan and vision towards the realization of our goals and dreams.
Country Acres Campground
Within hours of our being together and talking, you began to describe some options that we had not considered and confirmed some of the thoughts we had. As the day progressed, your guidance and overall knowledge of the campground business, began to define a somewhat different path for our improvements and goals. By the end of our next day together, we had revised the projections to reflect an economic analysis of our new 5 year business plan and vision. You provided us a narrative of the vision you helped create and we updated our business plan to reflect such.
Within days, you started from ground zero and guided us through a 5 year vision and economic plan that was tailored to our family and in which we could believe and were capable of implementing. The nationwide perspective that you brought to our operation and your obvious global knowledge of a campground operation which you shared with us, probably saved us from spending $ 100,000 of our budget in all the wrong places. We couldn't have turned this corner so quickly without your help and would heartily recommend your firm to anyone wanting to bring into focus the potential of their campground. We simply can't say enough about how pleased we are with RDBA.

Ron Beard and his staff did an absolutely wonderful, on-time, creative and cost-effective job. I would recommend Ron Beard and his staff to anyone trying to get into the campground business or anyone trying to update their establishment. The industry needs more Ron Beards that are in tune with today's RVer.
I say thank you to Ron Beard and his staff for all of his insight in helping us create our park for the 21st century.
Ashaway RV Resort
Texas RV Parks, Campgrounds, RV Resorts, Charities & Marinas
Our RV Park opened late last year on Interstate 20 east of Dallas and the development process was certainly made easier with your involvement. We first had you complete a feasibility study that included a site layout, preliminary building plans, estimated construction costs and operating income/expense projections. All of the information which RDBA provided not only guided us along the path of campground development, but also became the basis of our decision to enter into the campground business with the confidence that we could not only build the facility, but also operate our park as well. The construction drawings that you provided allowed us to focus on the sub-contractors pricing and performance, knowing that the layout and planning was workable and well thought out by someone who was experienced in campground design and operations. Most architects, engineers and contractors apparently have neither been involved with campground layout or construction nor know nothing at all about the business.
Your guidance made a tremendous difference in our efforts and we couldn't recommend you and your firm more highly.
Bluebonnet Ridge RV Park
In January of 2005 I purchased some acreage with the purpose of building a new
modern RV Resort Park. I contracted with Ron D. Beard and Associates to
perform the initial development assessment, income/expense spreadsheet analysis and
masterplan layout. Ron completed all contracts as agreed upon in a professional
I had been researching RV parks for several years and with my background in
construction was confident I had enough information to build one from scratch.
However, Ron's analysis provided me with some important information and insight that I
would never have thought of. Ron developed a comprehensive plan for construction of
a new facility incorporating my vision that fits within proven models. It is clear now that I
would have made critical mistakes without using his expertise.
In particular, Ron Beard is very skillful in producing site plans using AutoCAD. Most
architects work in this format and can easily produce home and building plans, however
few regularly produce layouts covering several acres with multiple roads and buildings.
My experience has been that Ron is your best bet to efficiently produce a large scale
layout of this type. I strongly recommend that anyone planning on building an RV Park,
even with prior RV or construction experience, utilize Ron Beard for at least a basic site
evaluation and draft masterplan.

I just wanted to say thanks for spending the day with us at the Hill Country RV Park and
coming up with some ideas on ways to improve the park both aesthetically and financially.
Being relatively new to the business, I soon found out how much I have to learn!
You provided numerous great ideas to us, many of which we will implement right away. I was
especially appreciative of the ideas to improve the income at the park and you helped me confirm
how badly the park is presently underperforming.
Thanks again and I look forward to working further with you as we begin to turn around this park
and to working with you on other projects we find in the future.

I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did to help us develop the Habitat on Wheels concept, which has made quite an impression on the City of Austin's Mayor and City Council as well as many others who have seen the proposal. Your efforts will make a tremendous difference to our brothers and sisters who, for reasons we cannot fathom, find themselves homeless.
I believe that this project will become a best practices model and will be replicated around the country. I look forward to working with your as this concept grows and expands.

Paradise Cove Marina & Yacht Clubs, L.L.C. hired Ron Beard to consult with us on the development of our unique waterfront acreage on Lake Travis, Austin, Texas. We had no experience in the RV business, and Ron has been helpful in all areas we have requested: income/expense spreadsheet, business planning, master layout and marketing. We struggled with the direction to develop the RV Resort and Ron gave us many suggestions that we believe guarantee the success of our project.
We are now moving forward with our plan and will consult with Ron on all aspects: approval, layout, construction and marketing. Our experience with Ron has been very positive and we recommend him to anyone in this business.
Yours very truly,
Paradise Cove Marina & Yacht Clubs, L.L.C.
