Park Model Section

I found some older threads about seasonal park model campers, sold by Forest River and others and conversation about creating a special section for these type RVs. Was that ever created or was it voted down?

I'll need to go back and look. I'm not sure either way, but since the owners haven't created a section, it would seem likely that for one reason or another, it wasn't feasible at that time.

Thank you for the response. There are a good amount of seasonals and some park model people already here. Included in the park model section could be destination trailers. Both trailer types are kind of a big business at my local RV dealers.

Thanks again.

Let me do some re-research on this.

The survey seems reasonable. If you group the destination trailers and park models into a single group of RVs that don't move from their site, that number would be comparable to Pop-ups, a-frame, and truck campers. I don't mean to say that this would be a huge segment of FRF.

In the campground that we are in and other campgrounds near ours, there is also a good segment of 5th wheel campers that are being used as full time destination campers or mostly destination RVs. Owners of these units get a lot of use out of their 5th wheels. Additionally, if you are paying for storage of your 5th wheel, why not just park the 5th wheel on a spot within driving distance that you enjoy instead of at a local storage lot. For some, this really makes the 5th wheel experience a great value.
