IT Challenges in the MH and RV industry

A substantial part of our business is supporting the IT needs of clients with Manufactured Housing and RV Resort properties.  Our clients have unique IT challenges and requirements compared to traditional residential or commercial properties and clients in other industries.   Here are some of the typical IT problems and considerations specific to these markets:

Distributed Infrastructure

These companies typically have many property sites spread across a wide area, perhaps across many states. This can make it challenging to implement consistent standards across these geographically diverse areas and work with multiple internet service providers to ensure reliable and consistent internet service and network connectivity.

Outdoor Networking

Unlike traditional buildings, many of these properties require outdoor networking solutions to connect units or sites, particularly with RV resort properties. This includes weatherproof equipment, wireless access points, and trenching or aerial cabling for network infrastructure, which can be more expensive and complex to deploy and maintain.

Resident Turnover

Like any hospitality business, RV resorts often have a high turnover of temporary or short-stay residents, which can create challenges in managing guest Wi-Fi access, bandwidth consumption, and network security.

Cost Considerations

Many manufactured housing communities and RV resorts cater to budget-conscious residents or travelers, which can limit the resources available for IT infrastructure and support. Some properties have aging utility infrastructures that require a large portion of their capex budget for updating, thus limiting available resources for IT upgrades.

Legacy Systems

Older communities or resorts may have outdated or legacy systems that need to be integrated or upgraded to meet modern technology demands. Many communities have individual network setups, inconsistent equipment, or one-off solutions. Standardization and consistency across properties are challenging to achieve, especially on tight budgets.

Remote Management

With units and sites spread out, remote monitoring and management of IT systems becomes essential for efficient support and troubleshooting.

Utility Billing and Metering

These properties often need to manage utility billing and metering systems for individual units or sites, which may require integration with IT systems.

Community Amenities

Common amenities like clubhouses, pools, or recreational facilities may require additional IT infrastructure and services to support their operations and provide customers with access to the internet and Wi-Fi.

Mobile Connectivity

Residents and guests in these communities often rely heavily on mobile devices, which can place additional demands on wireless networks and cellular coverage.

Disaster Recovery

Due to their often remote locations and potential exposure to natural disasters, robust disaster recovery and business continuity planning are crucial for these properties.
