    Gardens RV Village - Crossville, TN

    There are a couple of RV Communities in Tennessee that I am aware of. In this thread, I will share what we have learned about Gardens RV Village in Crossville, TN.

    Location
    Crossville, Tennessee
    - 76 miles west of Knoxville
    - 113 miles east of Nashville
    - 326 miles east of Memphis
    - 200 miles north of Atlanta

    Development Information
    - Development website: www.gardensrvvillage.com
    - Developer: Tim Wilson
    - Phone: 931-456-7794
    - Email: teresa@gardensrealtyllc.com
    - YouTube videos by: rvretirementhomeport
    - YouTube videos by: rvgarage

    Age of Community
    - 10 years old (~1999)

    Type of RV Community
    - Homes with RV garages

    Home Types
    - Homes are sited "duplex" or "side-by-side" style
    - Owners have flexibility in home styles and sizes
    - Use a developer design, bring your own design or have developer design what you want
    - Garages are attached to the homes and are fully enclosed (up to 80 feet long)

    Lot Sizes
    - .23 to .50 acres (lots sold separately from home except home resales)

    Lot Costs

    - $42k - $60k in the newest phase (6) as of September 2009

    Home Costs
    - $150k - $300k+ (just my estimates based on what I have seen on past home prices)

    Assessment Fees

    - $250 base annual assessment for unimproved lots (as of 2006)
    - $320 base annual assessment for improved lots (as of 2006)
    - Base Annual Assessment only covers maintenance of common areas. It does not include any home maintenance

    My Experience with this Community
    I have no experience other than interaction with the developer on potential purchase and interaction with one home owner there. So far so good. People seem to love this place.

    My Recommendation of this Community
    I have no recommendation as of yet as I do not live there and have not spoken to enough owners (2009-Sept).

    Jim,
    I have lived here in Crossville for 3 1/2 years now. I retired from St. Louis and moved here. It is a small retirement community and is considered the Golf Capital of Tennessee. Obviously the golf, the cost of living and the mild climate is the attractive aspects for retirees. As far as the RV Gardens, it is an attractive development in a very good location of the city.

    Hi Van,

    Thanks for the feedback on Crossville and Gardens RV Village. With this new forum, it is my hope that we end up with a decent number of RV Communities being represented in order to serve as a starting point for this interested in such communities.

    I am dropping you an email about a trip I have coming up to your area.

    Jim

    Our Home Design in Phase 6 - Lot 2 at Gardens RV Village - Crossville, TN

    Well, we have finished our own first pass at a home design and have sent it to our developer/builder to review and estimate.

    While we know there will be changes to be made, we're hopeful the basic layout will be viable.

    See attached PDF to see the lay out.

    Oh Sis' - you judge too quickly

    Not shown in the floor plan is a 50 amp power outlet, water and Direct TV outlet outside the RV garage door for my traveling through friends to squat for a day or two.

    I got your back!
