Temporary BooneDocks

For the past 3 1/2 years, every location for the BooneDocks has been a temporary one, but now we are in a longer-term temporary state until we figure out just what it is that we are going to do next.  When we sold the motor home, we decided that the most expedient thing to do would be to rent within the RV park where we already were located.  We have rented a “park model”.  Technically, a park model is an RV so we guess you could say that we still are full-time RVers.  In order to qualify as an RV rather than a mobile home, a park model has to have less than 400 sq ft of living space space and has to travel as a trailer to its home destination.  Once there, they simply detach the tires, wheels, suspension, and A frame/hitch and the “RV” is pretty much going to stay at that location ongoing.  Apparently there are tax and other advantages to a park model being classified an RV.

With that background, let’s get on with the show.  Here is what our park model looks like including its attached car port.  Note that I already have put out some flower pots.


In front of the car is a nice sized screen room with access to the back entrance of the house.


Inside, there really isn’t much more space than in the motor home and a lot less storage so we also rented a small storage locker.  Note that the living room is resplendent with kitty.  Alley cat is adjusting well and has laid claim to the screen room as her own house.





And as we are still in an “RV” and you know the saying, “home is where we park it”, we had to post our sign at the front entrance to our temporary home.



We can rent this place through the end of the year, so we have about that much time to figure out what is next for us and make it happen.


  1. looks like a good place to hang while you ponder the future.

  2. I forgot. Where are you guys currently located? Best of luck with whatever decision and direction you decide to go in.

    1. Titusville, Florida on the "Space Coast".

  3. Nice looking park model.
    They got any like that I can rent for the 15/16 winter?
    Have a good summer.

  4. Discovered your blog tonight and like a good book, stayed up and read whole thing. You guys have seen a lot of USA in three years. Very enjoyable to read also. I will bookmark it for our future travels.

    We are just snow birds..Alaska in Summer and Merritt Island in Winter. Retired in 2011 also. Good luck in finding your next chapter in life.
    Perhaps we will see you on Cocoa Beach someday.

  5. I was curious if you were still in this Park Model and what your next plan will be.
