Jerry Bergman, General Manager of Texarkana (Texas) KOA, added 25 sites to his park since last March for a total of 63 in anticipation of a continuing construction boom in the area that includes a new oil pipeline, a $120 million road project and an anticipated 600-megawatt electric generating plant.

“That added up to a lot of construction workers needing monthly RV sites,” said Bergman, who converted the RV sites from vacant mobile home pads that were on the same property. “It was pretty easy to covert them because the electric was already there,” he said.

Even with an increase in monthly rentals to construction workers, overnight travelers aren’t being pushed aside. “We still have plenty of sites for them,” Bergman said, noting, though, that RVers in transit are “slightly less than last year.”

“We usually get a lot of snowbirds going back and forth, but we haven’t seen as many this year,” he said.

Bergman also oversees what he calls the nation’s largest RV art gallery with more than 200 objects, including 88 prints – some that he commissioned – miniatures, clothing and other items. “We think it’s an interesting way to celebrate the RV lifestyle,” said Bergman, who opened the gallery in 2005.
