  1. It sure got my attention when you explained that park models are recreational vehicles that are delivered and parked at a single destination to serve as houses. To be honest, I know nothing about park models prior to reading this article. I became interested in it after my sister told me about it, but she did not elaborate on the matter. Now I think it is a good idea if we have one for our camping. Thank you for sharing.
