Armando (Mandy) Alonso, owner of American Cruising RV (DBA: American Adventures RV), has partnered with Mike Wood, owner of Wildwood RV Village Campground, Travelers Campground, Breezy Oaks, and Lake Pan RV Village, to bring a whole new luxury service to the RV owners in Central Florida, according to a press release.

As part of the partnership Alonso will be building a state-of-the-art full RV sales, service, parts and rental dealership at Wildwood RV Village Campground in Wildwood, Fla.,, which is set to complete by this fall.

Mandy Alonso has over 40-plus years in the RV industry and has owned numerous campgrounds, such as the Wild Frontier Campground in Ocala, Fla., which was recently sold after 20 years of ownership. Mandy has also ran RV dealerships, such as County Line RV, Turning Wheel RV, America Choice RV and his newest, American Adventures RV, located in Bushnell Fla.

“Our purpose is to provide an onsite concierge service to all of our campground guest," Alonso noted. "Which includes RV service, parts, sales, financing, extended warranties and a free safety inspection.

Members will receive a complimentary one week stay at any of the four campgrounds when they purchase an RV from AARV. We also have plenty of space to host and welcome rally groups of all sizes”.

Wood and Alonso are also expanding the Wildwood RV Village Campground. Originally built in the early 1970’s as a Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) park, Wildwood RV Village was purchased in October 2017 by local campground owner-developers because of its location near The Villages and the intersection of four major U.S. and state Highways. 

"I started out with just 108 spaces, phase one began as an expansion and major renovation project and was completed December 2018 with 27 spaces added, bringing the total to 135," Wood explained. "Building upon the ‘Old Wild West’ theme of the Wildwood area, no detail was spared during the transformation of the office, recreation halls and facilities. It’s truly a one of a kind location.

"Phase two is set to break ground this spring as a 200-plus site expansion on the north side, adding larger and more modern spaces, additional outdoor recreational areas and amenities and a second convenient access in an out of the park, he added. "Phase three will begin in Spring 2020, adding up to another 100 sites to the east of the original park."

Wood also noted that additional land to the north and/or east will be acquired, making Wildwood RV Village one of the newest, most modern and convenient RV resort locations in Central Florida.

"Boasting over 600 sites in one of the fastest growing and sought out areas in the country," he explained.
