RV Parks excluded from transient tax

The Gold Beach, Oregon, City Council Monday tentatively agreed to exempt recreational vehicles from the six percent transient tax charged occupants of hotels and motels within the Gold Beach city limits.

"We compete fiercely for business with other RV Parks and it will put us at a competitive disadvantage if we are charged the transient tax and have to pass that on to our customers while the RV Parks up the river don't have to pay the tax," said Julian Starr, proprietor of Turtle Rock Resort in Hunter Creek.

Starr said Turtle Rock does its own marketing for tourism and doesn't rely on the Gold Beach Promotions Committee. He told the City Council that Turtle Rock spends about $40,000 itself on marketing, second only to the Promotions Committee.

RVers- How do they live like that?
Full-time RVing is not dropping off the face of the earth. It is not an endless vacation. Judy Farrow and Lou Stoetzer in RVers — How do the live like that? have shown what RV life is like, styles of RVing and what to expect as a full-timer. Sprinkled with actual cases, it makes for fascinating reading and gave voice to things RVers experience but may not put into words. It is an excellent book for those thinking about the RV lifestyle and to give to relatives of RVers to get insight in the lifestyle. Current RVers will enjoy the book and find it helpful, particularly at transition points in their lives.
