What is a HUD Park Model?

Wednesday, March 4, 2020

A HUD Park Model is built under the HUD standards for mobile homes, can be up to 500 square feet, and may be licensed as a recreational vehicle (RV) in Florida only. It must meet the hurricane wind load standard (either Zone 2 or Zone 3) for where it will be sited in the state, and is specifically designed for installation in RV parks for seasonal or year-round living.

    It is different from a regular Park Model, which is limited to 400 square feet and built to meet a different ANSI (American National Standards Insitute) standard A119.5, but is also titled as a recreational vehicle.
