Bay Area Home Options, Inc. develop land lease communities with sites available for rent to Recreational Vehicles & Campers (RV/Camper), Park Model Recreational Vehicles (PMRV) and HUD (Federal housing code) homes. Local zoning regulations, HCD permit to operate and specific resident guidelines will determine which land-lease communities can accommodate which type of housing.
Generally, Special Occupancy parks (Campgrounds) can accept RV/Campers along with PMRVs and would not allow HUD code homes.
Typically, manufactured/mobile home parks can accept PMRV and HUD code homes and would not allow RV/Campers.
Do-it-yourself built tiny homes, must be built and inspected and must meet or exceed one of the above codes before they can be sited in a community. This helps ensure the safety of existing and future residents by ensuring all homes have been built and inspected according to the applicable codes and standards.
NOTE: Available home options vary from community by community.
PMRV ranges from tiny (200 sq ft) to 399 sq ft. PMRV maybe 1-2 bedroom models.
Homes must be constructed to 1 of 2 building standards. Each home needs to be approved as either (1) a park model recreational vehicle or (2) a HUD code home.
Homes built to the Federal HUD code can be order in almost any size ranging from 300 sq ft to triple homes in excess of 3,000 sq ft.
BAHO welcomes great housing diversity including: porches, decks, outdoor canopies, trellis, storage sheds and indoor/outdoor living space to maximize living areas.
Homes may be built as do-it-yourself (DIY) if they have been inspected and certified as park model recreational vehicles (PMRV).
This park model recreational vehicle is allowed in some communities but not all communities as it lacks residential siding and residential roofing.
Fifth wheel campers are allowed in Special Occupancy parks, also known as campgrounds. These homes are not allowed in manufactured home parks.
Class A motorhomes are also allowed in Special Occupancy communities but not allowed in manufactured home parks.
