One of the most exciting things about living in a home with wheels is that you can move it anywhere! Yes, anywhere. So it’s important to consider the things you like about the space that surrounds you before you make a choice.
1. Do you want to own the property you park your home own?
2. How much work do you want to do on a daily, weekly, monthly basis around your home?
3. Do you prefer privacy over living close to someone?
4. What amenities will make life more comfortable?
For us, because we move every 3-5 years, we’ve opted to rent a piece of land or stay in an RV resort. Purchasing land and getting all of the hookups put in just doesn’t seem cost-effective for us and the market of the area where we live. So, after looking at all the RV resorts within a decent driving distance to work we decided on a 55+ community to park. Wait, what? No, we’re not 55+ yet, but we love the amenities of this park. We like that we both have a decent driving distance to work, and we like that it’s quiet here. Very quiet! When you’re living close to someone as you may do in an RV Resort, you’ll appreciate quiet. Our slot comes with all utilities included (minus internet) and a small storage unit. We also have additional parking for our Casita travel trailer which we use for a guest house or when we’re traveling. We have a laundry facility on site. The RV park is actually attached to a 55+ community. Technically, we can’t buy a come in the “community”, but we get all of the perks of living in the community like use of the pool, a variety of outdoor activities such as putt putt (if you’re interested) and free wi-fi at the clubhouse.
We are originally from the South. So we’re no strangers to yard work. And for two years I was a caretaker on a large ranch that had more yard work than anyone in their right mind should have attempted to do on their own. That says a lot about my mental state! So, we wanted a very low maintenance place to live, and we got it! So consider all of these options when looking for a place to park your home. And the nice thing is that if after staying a while you see the setup just isn’t working for you, then you can hook your home up and move on! Yes, home IS where you park it!!
