Superior Park Models

A few weeks ago I was visiting the small town of Virginia City near my home in Washoe Valley, NV and I came across a few small park models that I had never seen before. The models were available for short or long term rental in a small trailer park above the famous Virginia City cemetery.

The Sportsman Series from Superior Park Model Homes were smaller than other park models I have seen, but still had everything you need in a tiny home.

The one I visited had a main room with a ladder to a small loft, a back bedroom and a small RV style bathroom. The walls were paneled in warm cedar and it had the most recent appliances. On that gray, rainy day, it was very cozy.

Superior has four different model homes to choose from and about 23 different floorplans. Each model is about 11 feet wide and range in length from about 16 feet to about 40 feet long.

The Sportsman Series also offers:

  • 10? Detachable Hitch
  • Triple Axles, 2 Brake W/ 1 Idle and New Tires
  • 2 X 6 Floor Joists 16? O.C.
  • 3/4? Tongue & Groove Sub-Floor with a 50 year Limited Warranty
  • Insulated Heat Duct In Floor
  • 2 X 4 Exterior Walls 16? O.C.
  • 2 X 4 Interior Walls 16? O.C.
  • Windzone III, Tie Down Brackets Welded to the Frame
  • 29 Gauge Colored Metal Roof or 20-Year Architectural Shingles
  • R-22 Insulation in Floors, R-13 in Walls, R-22 in Roof
  • Real Wood Log Exterior Stained, Sealed and Caulked

Looks interesting, it seems like this market will only expand, with the high levels of displaced family’s these days, seems like there will be a demand for higher quality mobile’s, although i think these are classified as an RV.
Did you get any prices for these?
I wonder what long distance transport would cost.

I purchased a Superior Park Model Home in 2007 with the Log siding look. I am very disappointed with the material used as siding. They used regular yellow pine ( unbelievable) and applied a wood sealer to it. I was always under the impression it was cedar so as you can imagine any seam that allowed water in,causes the siding to rot. Even though the wood was resealed a year ago, this did not help. So in 4 years the house is already in need of siding repairs. Be careful when purchasing these homes with wood siding. At this point I am not sure what to replace it with.
