Sun Reveals Plan for Its Two Va. Parks
Tom O’Branovic, senior vice president of RV operations for Sun Communities Inc., based in Southfield, Mich., disclosed on Monday (March 18) Sun's plans for its two new holdings in Mathews County, Va.
Sun New Point RV LLC acquired the New Point RV Resort for $12,869,000, while Sun Gwynn’s Island RV LLC acquired Gwynn’s Island RV Resort for $3,834,000, the Gloucester-Mathews Gazette-Journal reported.
O’Branovic said the acquisition of the two Mathews campgrounds was part of the company’s move to acquire properties in the Northeast and along the Atlantic seaboard.
The campgrounds are managed by Sun RV Resorts, a division of Sun Communities, O’Branovic said. Both campgrounds are under the direction of district manager Brian Cirrielli.
Sun Communities has plans to improve the seawall at the Mathews campgrounds, as well as upgrade the swimming pools and clubhouses, O’Branovic said. Also, he said Sun plans to begin renting RVs for short-term visits there.
These are the first RV resorts Sun has acquired in Virginia, O’Branovic said, with 325 sites at New Point and 125 at Gwynn’s Island. The company also operates a manufactured housing park in the Richmond area.
Sun operates 185 manufactured home parks and campgrounds in 19 states.
