GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., April 12, 2017 — Custom designed tiny house RVs will be available for rent this summer and fall at Jellystone Parks in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia.

“We’re trying something new,” said Zachary Bossenbroek, CEO of Northgate Resorts, a privately held Grand Rapids company that owns eight Jellystone Parks, mostly in the eastern half of the country, adding, “We think consumers are going to love these units.”

The tiny house RVs, which sleep four to five and include kitchens and bathrooms, are styled by Kansas City designer Kristen Rieke in the themes of the bears with a Yogi Bear Suite, a Boo Boo Bear Suite and a Cindy Bear Suite.

Jellystone Parks are home to Yogi Bear, Boo Boo and Cindy Bear who make appearances to greet guests and take part in activities. In addition, each location is themed with elements from these famous Hanna-Barbera characters. The tiny house RVs will also be themed to coordinate with the bears.

The units are being built this spring for Northgate Resorts by the Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, the nation’s largest tiny house builder.
