Not a "Tiny Home"

Find out the key differences between park models and "tiny homes."

Difference between park models and "tiny homes"

Talk of “tiny homes” has captured the attention of many people. Design considerations illustrated in television programs and on websites might evoke park models, but there are several key differences:

  • “Tiny homes” aren’t actually homes. Some are built to the code requirements for travel trailers, if they’re built to any codes at all. Athens Park Models are all built to the rigorous ANSI-A119.5 code for park models.

  • Park models can be housed on private rural property in most states, as well as on most RV campgrounds and in resorts around the country. Many RV campgrounds and resorts won’t accept “tiny homes” because there’s no set standard for quality and safety.

  • The RVIA park model label you’ll find by the front door of our park models makes them easy to finance and insure.

Full-sized amenities

Park Models offer full-sized amenities such as kitchens and baths, so you don't have to compromise on essential comforts.
