Introducing a Park Model.
A Park Model is a living structure build to a maximum of 400 square feet. The typical unit has one bedroom, one bathroom, a kitchen and a living – dining area combined.
There are abundant exterior designs to choose from and as many interior designs to meet every individual interest. Some manufacturers will build to suit your custom plans. Just ask your sales person for that option.
These units are placed on your own land, in special designated vacation locations, but most frequently they are placed in numerous senior communities or RV Parks or RV Resorts.
Most of the communities where you can place your new unit are RV Parks or Resorts that rent sites or a plot of ground to place your Park Model. Most sites and communities are equipped with all of the utility hookups needed to set up your home quickly.
The reason these structures are typically placed in RV Parks is they are rated as RV’s and are titled by state motor vehicle departments as vehicles. So you carry a vehicle registration for your home and you typically do not own the land where you place the Park Model.
Before you say there is no way you’ll live in a vehicle, maybe these simple associated costs will convince you otherwise.
Basic Cost New – as low as $17,500.
Basic Site Rent – as low as $350 month in a full service park. (This number could be much lower or much higher depending the amount and type of services provided in the community or area you place your Park Model.)
Many communities rent their sites on an annual basis. This requires you pay your annual fee up front each year. Other communities rent their sites by month, which gives you an easier way to budget your expenses.
Utilities – water, sewer and electric can run from $75.00 to $300.00 a month depending on your usage history and the region where you locate your Park Model. If it’s hot all summer, your expenses will be high in the summer, but much lower in the winter.
One of the great-added benefits of putting these homes in an Active Senior RV Community is the new lifestyle you will discover.
Many of the RV Resorts provide activity departments that plan daily and weekly events, live entertainment and even trip outings that you can participate in along with the other residents. Clubs, crafts and exercise facilities are also readily available.
So making friends and staying busy every day is a given that will keep you energized and enthused about your life when you choose one of these communities.
