Default RV plug installation

I am preparing a bid to install a 50A RV plug. It will be remote, approx. 100' from the customer's house. (It's private property so, as far as I know, this will not qualify as an "RV park" or as a "recreational vehicle site". - I have not really done this on my own before so I am just doing some research on this, (also looking in the NEC); I am looking for anything I might want to know before I begin. Any suggestions?

As far as I know at this moment, I need to run an equipment ground, no ground rods required, and no 110V service plug required... (Please correct me if I am wrong on any of this.) I am not aware of any GFCI requirements for this either. Thanks in advance for answering my "stupid" questions! I'm just a super careful type of fella.... (never want to do something twice!)

You going to run pipe or direct burry? At 100' I'd consider a #4 aluminum URD either direct buried or in PVC.

I'm bidding it with #4 aluminum... The supply house said they can only get me 3 conductor so I'll have to run an extra conductor for a ground. I plan on using number 6 for that, although that I believe is a little bit bigger than it needs to be. I am planning on renting a trencher and just directly burying it.
