    Doesn't look bad.

    I'd never live in one because I despise manufactured homes, but there are plenty who will and so I say sell them one.

    I own a single wide. I love it. It was the perfect solution.

    No, I dont live in it.

    I have a few pieces of property. One of them is wooded flatland that is about 30 acres. Not really valuable land either but when I bought it, it was a close getaway from where I was spending a lot of time at the time.

    Building a house would have taken a long time and made the property not much more valuable. Doing a little dirt/septic and electric work, and tossing a single wide on it was the perfect solution.

    Sounds like a great solution for those circumstances. I didn't really think you lived in one full time, but was curious all the same.

    I don't think anyone here has demonstrated a problem with them making money. The big concern (and a very valid one), is that there are enough Americans to support panem et circensis of such low caliber. HH

  8. I flipped an older double back in 2010 and cleared about 7k in profit.
    55k isn't a bad price at all.

    I lived in a mobile home when I first got married, many years ago.

    I knew I was white trash, but hey........... It some parts of the nation, having a brand new mobile home is nothing to be sneered at. Many people I knew at the time had a lot worse digs than mine.

    I find it silly that the same poor suckers who watch that show would pay a premium for a single wide just because it has their name on it.

    I am not up to speed on prices, but it may not be a premium at all. It may be a similarly priced home that is using branding to drive sales.

    Millions don't have the luxury of a box appartment or condo building. Many aren't allowed much beyond the TV they are watching. So they get their heros from whom they can identify with! Like the Kardashians, Hollywood rich, Baby Boo Boo, Beverly Hillbillies and such. There are a bunch more folks that live on the low end than the high end by far!

    So what's the point with Single/Double wides and Box house neighborhoods? The person that comes up with a sound shelter for low bucks will never need to worry for beer money. I think that's why so many are trying to come up with something.... Even the Robertsons.

    My wish is that I could afford housing for all the folks that are struggling to get a leg up without selling their souls for a hand out from an enslaving g-ment that is buying their vote on the working mans dime.

    Judging peoples arbitrary choices is our national pastime.

    We all let some of it creep into who we are but some make it a competitive sport.

    Folks, enterprise is good. Even when they are selling the widget in a color you dont like.

    In our county there are a few Ranchers that have Multi-million bank accounts and thousands of acres with thousands of cows that are very happy in their manufactured homes. Same with Orchardist.

    Will admit I don't have a real high regard for Renters, myself. Oh well.

    I'm all for the Robertsons, or anyone who can come up with easy affordable housing for those who need it..

    Incidentally two years ago I bought my first Camo Carhart Teeshirt. Then I bought two camo ball caps. Darn stuff is beginning to grow on me.

  17. Yes, they have a model for them. They replace the gun cabinet with a hair salon.

  18. I've never lived in a mobile home, but I'm considering it for my final retirement residence.

    Resale value and appreciation/depreciation are NOT factors in this decision; I'm thinking a step above an RV which is far smaller and too expensive to tow all over the place looking for stopping places. A houseboat would be smaller, more expensive to move, and more maintenance work.

    :fred:
    So, assuming a crime-free but affordable 55+ mobile home park in a good location, what are the biggest disadvantages to living in one?

    Flat roof prone to leakage.
    Code-specific water heaters and furnaces (gas) and woodburning stoves.

    On the way to crazy
    They have shut down all but ONE mobile home park in our county. I honestly think that's kind of crummy. I guess the low income requirements for each new neighborhood are supposed to make up for it :dunno:
