Park Model Cottages to Go

Called park models because they can be parked anywhere, they are a maximum of 400 square feet under federal guidelines and therefore not taxed as permanent dwellings, making them an attractive option for beach, lake or mountain retreats.

Though they are considered recreational vehicles, they look more like small houses. They are available in many different varieties. From rustic to modern and sophisticated, you decide what style is best for you.

Costing $20,000 to $80,000, they are subject to sales tax when purchased, and depending on the state or the municipality, they may require annual licensing and registration, for fees from $30 to about $300.

The New York Times has a great article on this style of living. To read “A Resort Cottage to Go” Click Here.

      Hi Joe, unfortunately that picture was pulled off of a forum that had no other information about that cabin. I’ve done more research but so far have been unable to get more information.

    Ever since I’ve gotten into tiny houses I’ve wondered about these… One of the problems for me is finding where I can put this (being under 55).

    And how do you pull these? Can you still pull these with a heavy duty truck or do you have to get it towed by an even larger vehicle?

    Found it in the reference article:

    Smaller and less well insulated than manufactured houses, park models are considered personal property like cars and boats. But they can be winterized for use in all seasons. Costing $20,000 to $80,000, they are subject to sales tax when purchased, and depending on the state or the municipality, they may require annual licensing and registration, for fees from $30 to about $300.
