Vacation Home in Florida…

Sounds good, doesn’t it? I have been to Florida several times and enjoyed the weather along with the beautiful scenery. Living in Kansas means dealing with some cold and harsh weather. My husband and I have had many discussions regarding having a vacation home in a warm place like Florida, but it has always been a ‘some day’ dream, until now.

Carefree RV Resorts

Introducing Carefree RV Resorts. Carefree RV Resorts is a family of 101 RV parks and Manufactured Home Communities across the United States and Canada.

Carefree offers a wide selection of new and used Park Model homes for sale in their RV Resorts, and mobile homes in their Mobile Home Communities.

Now that vacation home that seemed to be out of reach is attainable. With 34 RV Resorts in Florida, Carefree RV Resorts have something to suit any budget or need.

Park Model Home

A Park Model is a smaller, single-wide home that is considered a recreational vehicle. Park Models are designed for placement in RV resorts, campgrounds, or locations where smaller trailers are an acceptable living environment.

A typical Park Model is a single structure and is shorter and narrower than a Manufactured Home. They typically have one bedroom, one bath, an eat-in kitchen and living room. Park Models are typically eight to thirteen feet wide and have one or two bedrooms. They are under 500 sq ft.

Retirement Living

That vacation home can also be your retirement home.

The lifestyle is really what sets Carefree RV Resorts apart. Learn how to play the guitar, join the pickleball team, take a class on using your new iPad… its all up to you! With a wide range of lifestyle offerings you can be as active as you want to be!

Carefree RV Resorts and Communities provide an active lifestyle unlike any other in the industry.

    This looks like a great way to winter in the sunshine in an affordable way!

    Interesting. Seems like an alternative to time shares to consider. Without the big upfront commitment.

  3. Hi Cheryl. We stayed with a friend who had a place in one of these retirement communities in FLA. It's a great way for those of us living in a cold climate to getaway without breaking the bank.

    That first picture of the mobile home is cute. Not what you'd expect from a mobile home…at least not what they used to be. Luckily I'm already in a wonderful warm retirement state, but for you snowbirds, this looks like a great deal to get out of the cold in the winter. 🙂

    What a fun idea–thanks for writing about it to get the word out and about. I'm in Pittsburgh…maybe not as cold as Kansas, but there are many days when I see palm trees in my future!

  6. JeriWB says:

    I like the whole idea of "tiny" living retirement abode or otherwise. Here's to smaller houses and leaving a lighter footprint.

    I like the picture of the mobile home at the top. It seems to me this would be perfect for the Canadian Snowbirds – of which I am not one but I know many who are. When you're getting away from it all you don't want to be bothered doing a lot of home maintenance making a small place like this perfect.

    Travelling through the USA in an RV… but then staying overnight in a park. That goes on the list! Thanks!

  9. Sounds like a good affordable holiday home. I've never heard of Carefree, so thanks for this Cheryl:-)

    I would love to get a vacation home in Florida, but my husband prefers the mountains. If we could have a beach at the mountains, it would be the perfect location.

  11. I would be interested in doing this one day. I already have arthritis at a young age and I will probably want to retire in a warmer climate. We still get cold temps in Texas.

    I live in California but I always enjoy my visits to Florida. I'm going to keep this bookmarked and look into it as I get a bit closer to retirement. That home in the top picture, yeah, I could stay there 🙂
