What is a park model home?
A park model home is designed and intended to be used for recreational, camping and seasonal use. These units are sold by Recreational Vehicle dealers who are licensed to sell RVs. Park model homes are primarily used by their owners as seasonal dwellings, which are typically located in RV parks and campground resorts on sites that are owned, rented or leased, and are then occupied by their owners as seasonal or vacation dwellings. Park model homes may also be located on privately owned parcels of land, subject to local zoning regulations.
