55+ for snowbirds, temp or permanent living

RV retirement parks could be your answer to finding a warmer climate when it gets cold.
(Jump to listings.)

Jump to Index for all Manufactured Categories.

Some people have a passion for RVing. If you can remember what it was like to go camping; waking up to mountain, lake or other scenic beauty; when foods smell fresher and appetite is keener; perhaps a swim or hike just beyond your front door, you may be thinking of the RV life or you may already be enjoying it.

If you already have an RV you can rent a space on a temporary or permanent basis depending on what the park allows. 

If not, read this article written for us about tips on buying an RV.

Annual Space Leases

Some parks have annual space leases for people who want to rent long-term.  People lease the space annually and when they return, they can see the same people who become their "neighbors." Some people live there on a permanent basis, and may eventually purchase if the lots are for sale.

Most parks today have free Wi-fi and cable but be sure to check.

Rent an RV for your next vacation...

Some parks also have RV rentals so you don't even have to own an RV. This is a good way to find out if you would like an RV retirement. You can also spend the winter in a rental RV which is provided by the park or take a short vacation.

If you have an RV or wish to, this becomes an extremely affordable way to live. If you buy a space then you have an investment as well as a second-home lifestyle.

You may also be able to rent your RV out when you are not there but check first to see if that option is available at the park.

Parks have different regulations and rules...

Be sure to read them carefully before going. Also, some parks only allow certain types of RV's. This is important to know.

Always check thoroughly any park agreements and rules whether renting or purchasing.

RV Class A2RV Class A2

There are many types of RV parks: campgrounds, campgrounds with RV and cabin rentals; park models for snowbirds or permanent with RV spaces and other variations. We have included all types and noted what kind they are; and, of course, all of our RV retirement parks are 55 communities. (I have listed a couple exceptions to the age rule and it is so noted.)

Interesting to Note:

  • If you own an RV and use it regularly, it may be considered a second home for tax purposes but please verify this information.
  • RV's average 8 to 10 miles per gallon of gas on average. Therefore, more people are staying longer at parks and parks are adding more amenities.
  • Seniors with disabilities can find rv's with added amenities such as a wheelchair lift. Active adults may enjoy adding raised toilet seat, widened doorways and hallways, electric beds and roll-in showers--all available now with the aging population.
  • There are directories for rv'ers to find medical facilities while on the road.
  • There are currently over nine million RV owners in the U.S.  
  • RV sales have been increasing in recent years.  It is reported that 2016 is a record-breaking year for new RV purchases.
  • Baby boomers age 55 to 64 have the highest ownership rates.

Federal Lands

The government site can provide additional information about reserving sites on federal lands. 

RV Communities with RV Ports

Communities listed throughout this site will note if there is RV parking, however, there are a few new concepts for senior communities.  These new communities market RV parking as a main feature not a side line.  Here are just a few:

  • New  Reunion Pointe - By Bella Terra.  Just 45 homes, all with RV ports - targeting baby boomers - There is a visit program to "try out" the community.  Between Mobile and Pensacola near the Gulf in Foley.
  • Valencia Lakes in Tampa - By GL Homes - On-site boat and RV parking lot.  This was so in demand that there is now a wait list for the 50 spots.  
  • Valley View at Sunrise Hills - Ft Mojave, Arizona - entire community with RV garages.
