Info on RV Garage Homes

Hi:

We are planning to look at a few places in Nevada and maybe Utah that are called RV Garage Homes. Here is one in Nevada with a picture RV Garages - Cottage Court - Luxury New Homes Laughlin Nevada

Basically they are homes with garages large enough to store your RV attached. We are not retired (yet) and know we will be using the RV probably 6-7 months out of the year. But the rest of the time we would really like it close. And we are thinking of purchasing a house that would be our retirement area...with the RV garage.

So, does anyone live in one, have you seen them, what do you think about them? We will be in Las Vegas and then 4 weeks in southern Utah. I think St. George, Utah may have some, I know Nevada has them and I think CA has them in Palm Dessert area. Arizona has some but I am not interested in the Phoenix heat. Any suggestions? Just curious what others think.

Robin

I can understand the appeal of such a special structure. My question is why limit yourself to where the available units are located?

Why not just find a nice home where you like that has the available space to build an attached/unattached coach house. Seems that you would/could be much happier with a custom build and not limited to what is already built. I'd imagine they are about the same price.

Also, you may find most homes are quite large and pay more than you want for more than you need, if you're just looking for a small place when not full timing in the coach. You did not say if you need a fully outfitted home.

In any case, keep us posted as to what you are finding...

I was thinking the same thing as I was reading your post. Now I build homes myself so it's a no brainer for me to go that route. There are lots of available house plans online with the RV House. I'm considering building one myself in the future.

My wife and I looked into some of those (in Florida). We wanted a vacation home and thought we might get one of the cheaper ones...just a pad with a storehouse.

We never got it. They're pretty pricey, but what I did find out is that the social aspects of a community loaded with RV's has a lot of appeal. You get to know your neighbors and then everybody gets together and takes trips. You carry on that camaraderie when you get back home with pot-luck dinners in the subdivision clubhouse or golf tournaments for the subdivision.

I can see where it would have a lot of appeal for people who are very social and love big groups. That's something that you don't get with "Build your own".

I have been going to the Colorado River for boating and waterskiing for many years. When I first started, there were only 4 casinos in Laughlin and no bridge to cross over to Bullhead City. Mainly camped out of Needles Marina Park and now own a mobile home there.

Have seen the Cottage Court homes in question from the outside a few times (the development has been there many years due to slow sales, which may be due only to the economic times). When you look at their website, you will notice that there are no photographs of the back yards. It's because there are no backyards and the homes are somewhat close together (IMHO).

They are also pricey for me. Another alternative if you're looking for new in this area are the "Arizona RV Homes" across the River in Mohave Valley Arizona RV Homes is Valley View @ Sunrise Hills - Custom Built Arizona Houses with Large RV Garges . We have looked at them and they have less interior SF and too pricey.

We live in So Cal and our plan is sell current house and go full-time in 2 years and stay that way until whenever. If we do wish to settle in the future, it may be in Lake Havasu.

Lake Havasu is a great place to hang your hat...
RV garages are very common here. Most houses built in the last 15 years will have one.
