RVs As An Affordable Housing for Zephyrhills Veterans

RVs Are An Affordable Housing Option For Zephyrhills Veterans

The city of Zephyrhills on Florida’s Nature’s Coast was founded by a Civil War veteran in 1910 and remains a welcoming community for military veterans today. Many veterans are choosing the freedom and savings of the RV life after their service, and mobile home/recreation vehicle (RV) parks like The Oaks at Zephyrhills are growing in popularity.

Adjusting to civilian life after the military has its challenges, and finding affordable housing is at the top of the list. With the prices of traditional, brick and mortar homes on the rise, RVs provide a cost-effective and sustainable housing option for veterans and retirees.

RVs allow veterans and their families to reduce living expenses while maximizing life experiences, all on a fixed income! By choosing the RV lifestyle, veterans can live in locations with more amenities and activities than a typical neighborhood. There’s also freedom to travel the country or to follow the seasons to find their ideal destination.

While the picturesque rolling hills and warm weather draw many veterans to Zephyrhills, the reasonable cost of living, popularity of RVs, and access to services are all reasons to stay. There’s even a new Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) outpatient clinic located in Zephyrhills, and military bases are nearby in Tampa.

Just west of downtown Tampa, all branches of service are represented at MacDill Air Force Base.  The base is home to two unified commands and other mission teammates, and their Retiree Activities Office is a resource for retired service members.

Veterans also have access to comprehensive health care services at James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital in Tampa and general practice physicians at the community-based outpatient clinic in Zephyrhills.

With more than 54,000 military families and their families living in Pasco County, where Zephyrhills is located, there’s an emphasis on local government programs and support. Pasco County Veteran Services, alongside local nonprofits like Empowering Pasco Veterans, is connecting active members of the military, veterans, and their families with resources.

Local property owners, like Kong Management Group, are also committed to making sure that veterans have affordable housing options. Located right off of U.S. 301, The Oaks at Zephyrhills is Good Sam-certified RV and mobile home senior community – and a great choice for older veterans or retirees!

The Oaks at Zephyrhills also works with the VA and the Pasco County Housing Authority to make sure that military veterans have access to quality housing. The Oaks at Zephyrhills accepts government rental assistance, such as Section 8/Housing Choice Vouchers and HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) vouchers, to keep monthly costs affordable.

Safety, security, and support are top priorities for all residents. Friendly managers live on-site at The Oaks at Zephyrhills, and the neighbors look out for each other in this tight-knit community.

The Zephyrhills area also has a rich military history and is home to active veteran groups, including American Legion Post 118, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and Amvets Post 550 of Florida. Every year, a Veterans Day Remembrance Ceremony and Parade in downtown Zephyrhills commemorates the service and sacrifice of local veterans. And the Zephyrhills Museum of Military History honors World War II veterans every day!
