Anyone ever set up your home to be friendly to RV visitors?

We own a Jayco travel trailer and have family and friends who have them too, and are thinking of setting up some amenities in our rural (zoned agricultural) acreage home to make having one travel-trailer toting visitor at at time, feel more at home. For example, an RV power hookup, and maybe even a sewer hookup. For water, temporary RV water hoses from our exterior house water taps is already easily done, but for the sewer and the power parts, I'm wondering if anyone has done this. I'm fairly handy but not a licensed electrician, I think I'd get a licensed electrician in to do the electrical. Anyone done this? How did it go and what did you learn?

Warren

Of course it serves our needs first and foremost but we have installed a 50 amp ped, sewer and fresh water are 25' away. The parking area can support about a 40' RV with ours in place.
This is a typical residential lot side yard and the sewer and water were there originally to support the home on it.

Have one full hookup set up for visitors, the rest have to use a tote for gray and black tanks. Water or electricity for 2 more is no problem. Our TT is always hooked up to electric (year round)

Your visitors will thank you.

I'd vote for 50A hook ups but it depends on how big your friend's rigs are, if they will be there in the heat of summer, and if you have shaded parking spots.

The only other thing to think of is to make the area not 'soggy' when it rains.

We have a concrete pad, water and 30 amp box for visitors. There is a dump station about 15 minutes away. Our TT is usually plugged in but we give it up when visitors arrive. We will be expecting family to arrive in early September for a few days with their RV.

This is my camp spot for friends and family. I have a 5 acer lake with game room that has kitchen and bathrooms. It has concrete road all the way around with go cart's, bikes and even a train. Plenty of concrete to park 3 or 4 campers. When I'm leaving for the holiday's some ones usaily coming here to camp. It's nicer than lots of campgrounds I stay in but I don't like camping in my on backyard. I see it every day and want to go somewhere different.
