An Alabama Custom Cabin is a Recreational Park Model RV, constructed from the finest materials and designed as a well appointed lodge or log cabin. The following definition comes from the Recreational Park Trailer Industry Association:
Park Model Homes are recreational vehicles primarily designed as temporary living quarters for recreation, camping or seasonal use. They are built on a single chassis, mounted on wheels and have a gross trailer area not exceeding 400 square feet in the set-up mode.Recreational Park Trailer Industry Association
Each Park Trailer is certified by the RPTIA member manufacturer as complying with ANSI A119.5. Two different types of Park Trailers are offered. One type is less than 8' 6" in width and is designed for frequent travel on the highways while the other and more popular type is wider than 8' 6" (usually 12' in width), and must be transported with special movement permits from the state highway department. The 8' 6" unit typically is expandable when it reaches its destination utilizing slide-outs or tip-outs. The wider units, being less mobile are usually sited in a resort or RV park location for an extended term, typically several years.
