- Park Model RVs are a great match for those who want to experience seasonal camping and enjoy staying in one campground or resort for an extended period of time.
- Park Model RVs give Seasonal Campers extra space to spread out. Many Park Model RVs have a sleeping loft on a second level and some have as many as three loft areas and even a deck on the second floor.
- While Park Model RVs are towable, with their large size, owners leave them at a resort to enjoy the seasonal camping experience but are able to move them when they want a change of scenery.
The Seasonal RV
Park Model RVs are used for camping and seasonal use as temporary accommodations and they offer more space than any other RV type. They are designed to look like a home; however, they need to be hooked up to site electricity, sewer, and water as with any RV. They are also built with wheels so that they can be easily moved into and around campgrounds. Scroll down to see more of the possible features and amenities.Find a Dealer Find a Brand
Park model RVs living areas could easily pass for the interior of a home or apartment. They often have larger doors, multiple windows and high ceilings to accommodate additional loft spaces.
Lofts the kids love
The loft area in a park model can be used as storage but is most often utilized as bunkhouse and fort for the kids. It's just enough to give kids the privacy of their own space but allows them to feel connected to the main living area.
Bedrooms in park models are completely closed off from the rest of the unit and the high cielings make it feel like a private oasis. Often equipped with a queen size bed, many are large enough to include a king size bed with plenty of closet space, cabinets, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is seasonal camping?
Seasonal Camping is when a campsite is rented for the full season, and the occupants treat it as if it were a vacation home that they can come and go to as frequently as they wish. This means leaving the RV or park model RV on one campsite for an extended period of time, most commonly the summer camping season. For some, it’s a convenient weekend retreat. For others, it’s a seasonal getaway or yearly vacation tradition. But however you seasonal camp, it’s a great way to savor your favorite destination time and time again.
Can I live in this full time?
No. Despite their residential appearance, park models are built to RV standards and are designed for short-term, seasonal use. They are fantastic to use for an entire season if you are expecting to spend several weeks or months in one location or spend multiple weekends at the same place in the same way others use a lake house or condo.
How do I get a park model setup at my preferred destination?
Park Model RVs are initially towed to a seasonal RV resort and placed on a site for the owner. Most RV dealers will deliver directly to the campground, and many RV park operators offer storage during off-season months, along with setup service the following spring. Once hooked up to the campground’s electricity, water, and sewer, park models generally remain on the selected site year-round. Check with your local RV dealer and preferred RV park to see if these setup and long term storage services are available.
