When it is time to hit the open road and pay a visit to your favourite campground or RV park many people turn to an RV. The portable convenience of a travel trailer or motorhome makes it easy to travel and stay at multiple destinations. But what happens when you know you will be staying at the same destination for several weeks or even months? Then your best and most comfortable option would be a park model RV sometimes also referred to as a destination trailer. Park model RV’s are specifically designed to stay in the same location for an extended period of time. Park models offer larger floor plans, better amenities and many more attractive features compared to a typical travel trailer, motorhome or any other portable RV. At Bucars RV we have a wide selection of quality park model RV’s, and we will work with you to find something that fits within your budget.
What is a Park Model RV?
If you are not familiar with park model RV’s then you may not know that these RV’s provide some unique advantages over traditional portable RV’s. Park models can be styled to look more like a traditional RV while others are built to resemble a traditional house with wheels. Park model RV’s are designed to give RVer’s the feeling of home while out at their favourite destination. A park model isn’t designed for the rigors of the road, instead these homes are designed to be put in place and secured as a semi-permanent structure.
What are the Advantages of a Park Model?
The advantages of a park model RV are centered around those who are full time RVer’s. Park models provide you with the comforts of home while you are out enjoying your favourite destination. They offer large floorplans with amenities you’d find at home like a full size fridge, fireplace, kitchen island, king sized bed and more. With full sprawling floor plans, full residential amenities and other great perks for full time RVer’s a park model RV could be perfect for you and your family.
Why Choose a Park Model Over Other RV’s Designed for Full-Time RVer’s?
Park models aren’t the only RVs made for full time RVing, there are plenty of Class A motorhomes and luxury fifth wheels that provide some great amenities for you to enjoy. However motorhomes and fifth wheels are made for mobility so some of the space in their designs is set aside for the engine, drivetrain, or hitch. Park models are meant to stay in place over long periods of time, more of the space in the design of the RV is available for your use. Since towing efficiency and fuel economy aren’t factors in the design of a Park Model, manufacturers are able to go all in with full sized amenities. While these RVs can be significantly larger than other types of long term RV’s, they’re also smaller than a traditional house, which makes them cozy, without feeling empty.
Is a Park Model RV Affordable?
With a park model trailer you do not need a towing vehicle, so you won’t need to maintain one and that will save you money. This is not the only place that a park model RV will give your pocketbook a boost. Even when they’re set up as a semi-permanent structure, you only need to pay taxes for an RV, and not property tax. If you buy or rent the lot you park your destination trailer on, then this can lead to a pretty great deal compared to investing in a house.
