From atop a snowy knoll along the icy headwaters of the Colorado River, Derek Wilson beckons across a field of beeping, growling earthmovers, according to The Colorado Sun.
“Really, our plan is about what people want,” says Wilson, an executive with Sun Communities, the nation’s largest builder of manufactured home communities that is betting big on the expanding RV movement.
And Sun is staking a claim in Granby with an audacious plan for RV slips, rental cabins, for-sale villas and glamping spots surrounding a resort clubhouse with a swimming pool, a bowling alley, a bistro and store, fishing ponds and an affordable mobile home community. It’s a resort development concept unlike anything in Colorado, arriving in the middle of a sweeping renaissance in Grand County.
The River Run Resort — with a combination of 1,100 RV sites, campsites and cabins — is a cornerstone in the revival of Granby, which has long languished as both a pass-through and bedroom community for workers around the Winter Park resort. With an every man appeal, the project promises to fuel Granby’s growth into a vacation gateway and outdoor-recreation anchored community.
