We had a permanent sore for several years about 20 miles from where we live when our kids were little. We purchased a left over new trailer from a dealer and had them deliver it to the site.
We sold it four or five years later without ever towing it.

Every campground has different rules for permanent trailers. I would suggest you contact the park you want to put your trailer in n see what they require. There are many campgrounds that do not allow permanents.

What area are you looking for. I have had a permanent site in our park for 37 years. I have a 40' park model on it, plus a 37' Pace Arrow to spent winters in in South Texas. It's the only way to go. Eddie Elk.

Had a TT on annual / permanent site at Thousand Trails Morgan Hill, CA for couple three years. Bought the trailer used and had the dealer deliver and setup.

Utilities can vs handled differently site to site. For example electric can be included, charged at a flat rate, or metered.

No idea where you are but it is common to see time limits for camping at state parks. Also common for them to close and require all units be gone. All this is somewhat location dependent so check with your state and that park.

If you find a private park you like they commonly have a seasonal rental deal and off season storage on site.

We sold a very big and heavy TT to a couple that were not married (his truck).

The couple split after about 1 month, so she moved-in to the TT as a domicile.

To move it, she rented a U-Haul box truck rated to haul the U-Haul car carrier (Ford E-Series van cab chassis) in the 17'-20' range:

It was inexpensive and easy to drive, and the box truck also carried her bike and other campsite decorations.

Just an idea...best luck

Yeah our campsite is yearly. We pay our lot rent every May and its our site until next May. We can leave our TT there all year or whatever we wish.

Its well water, and its free. Each site has its own meter for electric and its due in Dec. or we can pay monthly or however we want just as long as the the electric usage gets paid by end of the year.
Its a private CG on 40ish acres and 24 sites. All campers have free reign over the entire campground. Our lots are heavily wooded and huge. We are allowed to do site improvements with prior approval. Like level land, add gravel, cut pine trees, etc. The main rules are no fireworks, and no cutting of hardwood trees unless the tree poses a significant issue.
The owner pretty much lets us do what we want if it improves the site/CG.
We are all one big family and everybody gets along with everybody. No quiet time, no limit on campfire size, etc.
Usually every friday and saturday night, somebody is having a fire and anybody that wants to hang out congregates at the fire. The campfires kind of rotate from site to site. Many weekends we have a feast at someones site with everybody bringing a dish to pass.

I know it kind of sounds like a lawless type place, but it works for us and everybody there. All 24 sites are filled every year with permanents, and there is a long waiting list to get in.
oh and btw, there is about 9 dogs and none are ever leashed. Everybody watches out for each others kids/grandkids and dogs. If somebodies kid or dog acts up, anybody in the campground has the authority to yell or whatever at the offender without that kids or dogs parent flipping out.
Like I said a big family that all get along.

I really doubt you can do this at a state park - only private parks. Also...I don't see the point of spending the money and also the rent at a park to just go 40 minutes away.

Sounds like a great place. Wish there were more around like it.
