Iain Senchell, the owner and manager of Firs Caravan Park, said the death had left everyone shocked and that their thoughts were with the dead man's family.
The site has 180 vans which are all owned rather than rented out and used for holidays, not residential use.
Mr Senchell said: “He had only had his van for a few weeks so he was a new customer and in that time he had made quite a few friends.
“Our thoughts are with his family.”
