Calling all glampors! It is with mixed emotions that we are putting our 2016 Kropf Park Model Home for sale. It’s the Island Series Loft Edition and absolutely gorgeous. We are planning to purchase property in the next year or two so our tiny home must go. Many of you have followed along with our RV-Camping stories, makeovers, campsite deck rehab projects and family gathering stories so I figured I would share the news in case any of you are interested in tiny house living. We placed an ad on Facebook and Craigs List yesterday and will most likely advertise local. The Park Model is located in a Massachusetts campsite on the lake but there are tons of companies that transport these all over the US.
UPDATED: Queen Bedroom/Queen Pullout Sectional Couch/Double Loft which fits 1 queen egg crate matress and 2 full egg crate mattresses. 3 kids plus my niece when she is there, all fit in the loft. Adults have also slept up there, me included ;). Fully upgraded with direct flush/Central Air/Loft Air Window Unit/Dishwasher/Upgraded Insulation/Electric Fireplace/Full Heat/Cottage Interior Premium package/Extra outlets inside/out/SS appliances and so many more features.
The beautiful thing about our Park Model is that it’s one year old and fully upgraded. It has every bell and whistle. Many times when you buy these, they are priced at the “base price” and by the time you end up adding everything you need, it’s another $10-12,000 plus delivery. We are asking $65,000 for ours and it’s a great deal for someone because it’s basically buying load brand new, but not paying retail. If you have been following along for a while, you know that we “love” and “maintain” everything we own to perfections ;). Call it my OCD for perfection. -ha
This is our fourth season camping (glamping) and to be honest, we started because we needed a place to escape for the weekends. For those of you who live in a multigenerational household, you know the importance of privacy and getting away from it all, to survive. As many of you know, I work from home so for me, I needed a place to get away from everyone and camping 5 minutes away from our home on the lake, gave me the serenity I needed. It worked out perfectly because my husband works 14 hour days including weekends (with his commute) and being so close to home/work, allowed us to utilize the Park Home and Glamping life as a second home. It’s funny how we never felt like we were in our town while at the camp. When we are at the camp, we feel like we are on vacation hundreds of miles from home. -ha.

We just added the Patio Mate screen room last season and it was the perfect addition to the park home. If you take over the site, everything (including the screen room) comes with the park home. All of the inside furniture and utilities are also included.
Our site also has it’s own dock which is located right in front of the site.
We rent the campsite spot so you can either take over the site and rental fee and keep the Park Model as is, or simply pull it out and place it where you want. There are loads of transportation companies that will move this type of recreational vehicle and you should also know, they are very easily financed as well. Our local bank gave us a very low home equity based mortgage rate. Kropf is one of the best selling brands of park model homes and they are year round living homes in warmer climates. Email me for more details if you are interested ;).
