Park model RV homes are an excellent choice if you love a location and want to go there frequently. Instead of owning a second home with all the expense involved; many people choose a destination trailer in a resort, so they can enjoy the location without having to maintain a large home.
Out west there are hundreds of RV resorts filled with tiny vacation cottages, called park model RV homes.
Small but luxurious they are becoming increasingly popular around the country, and are very popular with snowbirds who head south every winter to escape the cold weather in the Northern states.
Arizona is especially popular with snowbirds who return as reliably as the tides to the simple resort life where they trade their snow boots for flip-flops or sandals.
Instead of shoveling snow these snowbirds are enjoying a cocktail on their patio with their returning friends and neighbors, or relaxing in the sparkling pool and spa at their vacation and seasonal dwelling.
These park model travel trailers are like playhouses for adults. Complete with all the necessities for relaxing, dining, and entertaining without the worry, major expense or hours of outdoor maintenance.
