Midwest RV Power Outlets with post will work we'll. Each pedestal can be configured for phase connection of receptacles. Service will be a 200 amp service with 5 pedestals on each phase. Maximum load would then be 150 amps per phase. You will need 4 wire feeder for supply to pedestals. I am not sure of the materials and methods used in your area but if I were doing this project in my area (Wyoming) I would use 4/0 aluminum direct burial cable for phase and neutral conductors and a #4 cu equipment grounding conductor. This feeder is then looped through each pedistal. The post has the terminal blocks for in and out wiring with movable jumpers to connect the circuit breakers to the correct phase conductor. I will check on demand factors that may be able to be applied once I get to my office tomorrow. PM me with details - layout etc. and I will be glad to help with layout and material spec. I am an electrical contractor and have done a couple of small RV parks.

Thanks WY Husker Fan, I'd figure to use 2/0 4 wire alum cable to be sure and on the safe side incase of furture additions to the system.

If you intend to rent spots to anyone outside the church, you need to get an attorney involved.
What if someone sets up and refuses to leave? or gets hurt? or...?

I wired the 25 new sites at our local KOA. We used 3/0 alum wire. The panels do come prewired for 50/30/20 amp with breakers for all three or if using a 30 amp post is wired for 30/20 amp. The length of run plus the amps will determine the wire size needed. The longer the run the heavier the gauge wire will be needed because of voltage drop.

I've always been told to overdo these installations as RV's keep having more electrical load. We did a 5 unit setup last summer with a 200 amp service fed with 250-250-250-3/0 URD. If they add more sites down the road we'll add another 200 amp service and so the same thing. Steer clear of the people in the electrical isle for advice, they generally lead to more trouble than good.
