Buying a park model isn’t something to take lightly. After all, these RVs are much harder to move than traditional RVs and are better used as semi permanent to permanent dwellings. Once you decide that you want to buy a park model it’s important to consider several factors as you go about deciding which one to choose. The process can be frustrating and time consuming. Luckily, these tips are here to help you with your decision making. Read on to learn more about choosing a park model.
Location | Chances are you’ve got an idea of where you want to park your park model. If not think about what you like to do. There are locations all around. If you like golfing look for a spot on a gold course. Enjoy the beach? Check out ocean front parks. Are you concerned about safety? Many parks offer security cameras and security guards for maximum protection.
Budget | This might seem like a no brainer, but it’s easy to get caught up in all the fluff and fun of shopping for a new home. When you set your budget, also consider the cost of renting a parking spot and the potential cost of energy as it typically isn’t included in your parking fee.
Space | Many park models feature large kitchen and living areas, which is great. Others, however, come with lofts or dens. Determining how you’re going to use your space can help you narrow down your search. For example, if you’re planning on having the grand children over, it might be a good idea to select a loft model. This gives them their own space to sleep and play and will also keep them from waking you up if you go to bed earlier than them. Some lofts even feature separate bedrooms instead of just one large space. Models that offer a den are a smart choice for those who might still be working and need a work space.
Use | While many people decide to use their park model as a full time home, others choose to make it a vacation home. Think about what you plan to use it for. If you plan on living in it full time you’ll probably want a little more space, as you’re likely to get visitors throughout the year and want your own private space for relaxation.
