rv retirement parks (50)
55+ for snowbirds, temp, or permanent lifestyle community

Jump to Index for all Manufactured Categories.

Some people have a passion for RVing and love RV retirement parks. 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.

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:

  • 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.


Interesting to Note (verify all information):

  • 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 eleven million RV households in the U.S.  
  • RV sales have been increasing in recent years.  
  • Prices for new RV's have been increasing in recent years in part due to labor shortage.  
  • There will be changes in fuel types allowed in coming years so be aware of any new laws.
  • Baby boomers age 55 to 64 have the highest ownership rates.

Annual Space Leases

RV Class A2RV Class A2

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 like the community enough to buy or rent long-term.  RV'ers going to the next great place may eventually find a community they want to stay in or come back to every year.

Renting an RV 

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 like the community enough to buy or rent long-term.  RV'ers going to the next great place may eventually find a community they want to stay in or come back to every year.

Parks have different regulations and rules--read carefully

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.

There are many types of RV parks: campgrounds, campgrounds with RV and cabin rentals; park model communities for snowbirds or permanent with RV spaces with land ownership or land-lease, 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.)
