British Columbia City Eyeing Ways To Attract RVers (2/1/2019)

A city councillor wants improved RV parking in Kamloops, British Columbia.
Following a presentation by Tourism Kamloops, Bill Sarai said the RVing demographic has significant disposable income, but only has two places to park: in Knutsford and in Dallas, next to the B.C. Wildlife Park, according to kamloopsthisweek.com
“We’re missing that economic generator,” Sarai said. “If they’re so far out, they might just do their grocery shopping out at the little grocery store out there. They don’t come into town for much.”
Sarai suggested partnering with Tk’emlups te Secwepemc for accommodations at the G&M Trailer Park, along the South Thompson River.
“There’s so much opportunity there, to keep them closer to the city,” he said. “They can park their RVs, but still come in and spend their money in our town.”
