I don't know about y'alls roads but around here I'm lucky to have a camper behind me when I arrive at my destination.
Thinks WILL loosen, break, fall apart.

Sorry but some if not a majority of problems happen because your house drives or gets towed down the great USA hi ways we have.
OK I'm done with that.
One could rightfully assume provisions regarding this fact are engineered into the design, no?

Then why are there "park models" versus non park models?

What is the difference?

Park models have different "features" for "seasonal" camping.

Sliding deck doors, longer, atrium style windows.
More "cabin" like.

12 foot wide in some cases.

Travel trailers

There is a difference between a travel trailer and a park trailer. Although both are towed behind a vehicle, they are in different classes of RVs and serve very different functions. Other People Are Reading


  1. Definition of Travel Trailer
    • Truck towing travel trailer A travel trailer is a recreational vehicle (RV) that is towed behind a car or truck. It is used for temporary vacationing and frequent travel.

    Types of Travel Trailers
    Definition of a Park Trailer
    • A park trailer is more like a mobile home than a travel trailer. It is towed behind a large vehicle like a truck or SUV. They are not made to travel often.

    Park Trailer Uses
    • A park trailer is designed to stay in one area for an extended period of time. Many senior citizens use park trailers to go to a warm destination in winter, then pack up and go to a cooler area in the summer.

    Considerations
    • People who travel often will prefer a travel trailer. Those who like to stay in one area for months at a time will prefer a park trailer. Park trailers usually cost more than travel trailers

Your camper is in a mini earthquake every time you tow it.

Here is the straight scoop:

Some call them Park Models, others Cabins or Cottages. These homes are normally less than 400 square feet and are classified as RV's. They are not considered mobile or manufactured homes.

Most park model homes are built sightly better than a quality RV, however unlike a mobile or manufactured home, Park Model Homes do not meet stick built housing requirements and are not certified by Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Although they are great for the dollar spent.

Good Luck,

    A 'park model' is a specific type of mobile home, generally built to the same standards as is a mobile home, rather than to recreational vehicle trailer standards.

    Park models are thusly named because they are specifically less than 400 square feet in measured size. And that magical size number is what makes a home a property taxable home or not.

And it should be built to withstand that earthquake because they are destined to be towed, right from the moment it comes off the line. If you make a product to be towed then towing it should not destroy it.
