RV Daily Report mentioned an article about park "cottages." RV parks are adding these to their offerings and then renting them out or allowing them to be placed on lots that are leased to buyers. While they are recreational vehicles, because they have an axle, trailer hitch and can be moved, they are designed to be put in place and left there. Some are quite cute.
For the RVer who can no longer travel or is ready to get off the road, this can be an alternative that may be less costly than moving back into an apartment or stix 'n brix house. RV parks and resorts that cater to snowbirds or the over 55 group often have many facilities and activities for their residents. You can stay very active living in one of these places and still live some aspects of the RV lifestyle - in a small, cute house that doesn't look like a trailer. Generally they are under 400 square feet.
This little cottage on the left is pictured in the article at HamptonRoads.com. They are called park models, but also can be called "recreational, transportable homes," "park trailers," "cabins" or "cottages." Here's one from the TinyHouse.blog.
Nice to have options! Jaimie Hall Bruzenak
