Camper Corral Planning Move to 10-Acre Site
Land for a planned housing development that never materialized may become the new home for Florida-based Camper Corral, a year after lightning sparked a fire that damaged the business’ existing facility between Sebring and Avon Park.
The Tampa Tribune reported that R. Anthony Cozier, president of the full-service dealership, said the potential new site became available after Highvest Corp. entered into an agreement to buy 80 acres of land — the former site of the housing development called Tuscany Village.
Thirty acres of that site, which has been annexed into the city of Sebring, will be used for commercial development, while the remaining 50 acres will be used for a 300-site recreational vehicle resort, Cozier said.
In a written release, Cozier said, the new Camper Corral would be built on 10 acres of that site.
The location is prime for Camper Corral, considering the market it serves, he said. “The company attracts service business from as far away as Okeechobee and Fort Myers, and this location would be better-suited for future and further development of the company,” Cozier said.
It was only a year ago that Cozier was forced to work out of a makeshift office in a camper after lightning struck his business, causing a fire that demolished the building housing the supply of parts for recreational vehicles. In anticipation of the move, Cozier has his property up for sale.
But, he said, it’s possible he would redevelop the property after Camper Corral relocated.
