Nothing to do with friendliness but most members are campers, caravanners or motorhomers so this section is pretty, well, static really!
I don't know about prices, in this area £10k up for used and £25k plus new typically.
But beware site fees, gas, electric etc etc. Have a read of other threads to get the run down. Also fees payable if you sell up. Some owners are unscrupulous.
Tbh, a decent touring van on a seasonal pitch would be cheaper and you can change locations easily.

Great post! Just what I'd say, especially after talking to many static owners lately. Possible investment of 35k if new, then upwards of 2k per year site fees for 20 years, making total investment 75k. Some sites have limits of 20 year old vans, the owners then get possibly 2.5k for the van as it costs too much to move it by themselves. Expensive in my view. Lovely tourer and a seasonal site could tick all the boxes and also be a lot cheaper with a bigger return in years to come.
