The simple life is great
When you trade-in your traditional home for a tiny one, you are moving from a complicated life to a simpler one with fewer bills and hassles. The biggest problem you will have is finding a long-term place to stay.
To find the answer to the question can tiny homes be parked in RV parks, just continue reading. It is not a hard question to answer.
RV parks are safe
When you place your tiny home on a trailer with wheels, it is usually considered by the different governments to be an RV. That designation does allow you to park your tiny home in RV parks.
Then if you have what is called a Recreational Vehicle Industry Association certified tiny home, then you can legally park that house anywhere RVs are legally allowed to park including RV parks.
Camping in an RV park provides you not only with safety but a lot of amenities you no longer have when you downgraded your living quarters.
There are some restrictions
Before you go running out to your truck and start heading to the nearest RV park, you should be aware that each RV park has its own rules. While you can park your tiny home in an RV park legally not every park allows them to enter their property.
That means you should do some research on the different RV parks before you head off on vacation. Then since most cities classify tiny homes on trailers as RVs you can park them on your own property. The catch is, you can’t live in it full time.
There are also other regulations should learn about before buying or building your new tiny home. Cities are not always friendly to such owners or transient homes.
Some things to consider
When traveling with your tiny house like you would with a trailer or an actual RV you need to make sure that you have certain facilities that make parking in an RV park worthwhile. One of those items you need to consider is getting power and water.
You will need the proper hook up connections to make sure you can see at night, heat your water, and cool your food. Another consideration you have to think about is what are you going to do with your black and gray water? You will need large enough tanks to hold that waste material until you can dump them.
Some final words
Checking with the different RV parks that are along your travel route is a good idea. That way you get to know their rules and what to expect. But these are mostly short term options. If you want long-term stays then you should check out Craigslist or similar websites that help people find good lodging when they are on the road.
Parking your tiny home just anywhere may get you in trouble with the local city officials and the law. So be careful and do your research first before you leave home.
