Motorcoach Country Club is an RV resort and country club in Indio,
California. It was ranked the best luxury RV resort in the country
by USA Today’s 2019 Readers’ Choice rankings.

With elements of both a traditional RV park and a country club,
Motorcoach Country Club offers RV lots for rent for between $114
and $211 a night.

For those looking for a more permanent option, RV travelers can
become members by buying a lot for between $56,000 and $799,000 and
paying a $549 monthly fee.

The resort stopped accepting guest reservations on March 27,
but lot owners were able to stay onsite, Paul Johnson, the club’s
general manager, told Business Insider. Approximately 100 RVs are
currently at the resort, he said.

As people start traveling again, industry experts predict that RV
travel will see see a surge in popularity.

“Interest in the RV lifestyle — because it’s so Americana and
the desire for people to get out and explore their immediate
surroundings and visit some of the iconic places in the country —
it is literally off the charts now,” Garry Enyart, chairman of the
RV Industry Association, told Business Insider.

RV travelers are in self-contained units and can control their
surroundings, Enyart said, which are clear benefits during a
pandemic.

The Motorcoach Country Club is located in Indio, California, where
the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival takes place.

It’s about a half-hour drive from Palm
Springs
, a hip desert vacation spot, and 35 minutes from Joshua
Tree National Park.

The resort spans 80 acres and includes 400 RV lots.

The resort’s amenities include a nine-hole golf course, a
fitness center, multiple swimming pools, three tennis courts, and a
clubhouse with a private restaurant and bar.

There are also two miles of navigable waterways, where guests can
take electric boats that are up to 18 feet long.

Club members have unlimited access to golf and tennis, as well
as use of the waterways, the entertainment plaza, and the
clubhouse. They also get a discount at the club’s restaurant.

Guest have access to these same amenities, but the club observes
owners-only hours for golf, tennis, the fitness center, and the
clubhouse, according to Johnson.

The club has three types of RV lots: waterfront lots, golf course
lots, and privacy lots.

Some of the lots are undeveloped, with only a concrete parking
space, a landscaped lawn area, and hookups for water, sewer, and
electric.

But others come with lavish extras including full indoor kitchens
and living areas, swimming pools, and patios equipped with
furniture, grills, and fireplaces.

And the golf course lots offer immediate access to the nine-hole
golf course.

The privacy lots are developed with walls, hedges, and other
structures to keep the area private. 

This waterfront lot, listed for $549,900, comes with an infinity
pool and a luxurious casita.

The casita includes a full kitchen and a living area outfitted with
a glass folding door system, so it can be open-air or fully
enclosed.

The air-conditioned space has a full kitchen and wine fridge, a
hidden TV on an automatic riser lift, and a washer and dryer.

About 300 of the 400 lots at Motorcoach Country Club are fully
developed.

Owners who buy an undeveloped lot have the option to
develop it themselves
by adding things like casitas and
swimming pools.

Although many of the most luxurious lots have living areas,
travelers are forbidden from sleeping in them.

All guests and members at the resort are required to sleep in
their RVs.

Seven of the golf course’s nine holes are surrounded by water.

There are also three lighted tennis courts, a lap pool, and two
additional swimming pools with spas.

While the resort closed to guests on March 27 due to the
coronavirus pandemic, those who owned lots were allowed to stay.
