It doesn't take rocket appliances to know that it's called a trailer park, not a......whatever the fark you just called it.

But if they're not called trailer parks, where will the trailer trash live?

Jimmy Buffett changed his lyrics from "glad I'm not livin' in a trailer" to "glad I'm not pullin' a trailer". People are too sensitive. You can call it a manufactured home but it is still a trailer. There is nothing to be ashamed of for living in a trailer.

They're trailers.

TINY house hotels?  I've got a double-wide baby! (About 4 times more room than a $850,000 N.Y. condo.)

I have simple wants in life.  I wish to marry one of the Gypsy Sisters and live in Myrtle Manor... where we will raise our tiny pack in a MOHO..

Is that too much to ask?

Heh. I'm close to closing a deal on a used, three bedroom, two bath singlewide. Gonna set it up on my New Hampshire retirement hobby farm. Big enough for me, and I'm choosing a trailerhome because it depreciates instead of appreciating over time, so it will help keep the property taxes down.

In my engineer's head, it's Base Module Zero. After it's up and running, I'll be installing additional buildings (mud room, garage, barn, etc.) and connecting them to the base module with fully enclosed walkways, sorta like building an ISS in a field. It's gonna be awesome....

I have always referred to them as trailer parks.  When we moved in to ours the manager corrected me saying that the owner (who coincidentally resides in California) preferred to call it "Mobile Home Estates"  I was like whatever raised up in Oklahoma and that is what we always have called them.
Besides when I hear the word "estate" used in the sense to describe homes, I think of a place like a cul-de-sac in a gated community.

"Manufactured housing" is what the industry likes to call itself now, I believe.

Mrbogey: "Manufactured housing" is what the industry likes to call itself now, I believe.


I do believe that's the preferred nomenclature. The old shiatty trailers that you find in trailer parks are a thing of the past. The newer ones are built a lot better than the ones from the '70s, they aren't nearly the fire traps they used to be, and a lot of them can be put on permanent foundations if you so desire.

There is one subdivision near the city I live in that is nothing but newer doublewide manufactured housing. It is kind of an interesting place--good sized lots, nice streets, cul de sacs, excellent views, city gas water and sewer connections. Just what you'd expect out of any other cookie cutter subdivision, but all newer manufactured homes on permanent foundations.
I seriously considered renting there, but then I found something a bit closer to town with the same property management company that I am renting from now (and this property manager rocks, so why risk moving to a shiatty one?) so I'm moving to a non-manufactured home that was undoubtedly slapped together by illegals in 2006.

Mobile home refers to a brand--not a type--of home. Mobile homes were manufactured in Mobile, AL.

I once lived in a town where a local politician insisted they be referred to as "horizontally aligned housing".

The problem with pc speech is that it takes very little time for the pc term to pick up the same negative connotation. A rose is a rose, and all that. It's all right though. I'm sure it makes the people who push it feel.... special.

To be perfectly fair, if TFA is any indication, this really is a hotel. People tend to think of trailer parks as a place where people make their homes, so the term "trailer park" would be misleading.

But they are trailers. And they do park there. So it's got that going for it.

Some of them are gated, but it's to keep the riffraff from getting out

It's really a hotel.  I've walked by it.  It's in one of the most hipster parts of Portland if that says anything about it.

We live in a 2000 Schult we bought new (before that it was a shiatty 80's singlewide), it's got R-50 in the ceiling, 2x6 walls, bullnose corners, tape & texture throughout, vinyl windowa, Moen faucets, real porcelain sinks in the bathrooms, skylights, T-Lock shingles & it's 1700 sq ft.

Wife wanted to build a house but everything around here is manufactured housing, didn't want to be overpriced for the area (not that the house & foundation were cheap).

Each of the three tiny trailers has its own tiny toilet and shower, electric heat, and tiny kitchen, all housed in under 200 square feet.

And the tiny cookies, that the peoples eat.

Who cares what they are called, they will all be empty soon when the shiathawks swoop down and take everyone back to the nest.

What I want o know is when the are going to, and I quote, "Stack the sumbiatches."

I realize there are differences, add-ons etc but in general how much does a decent trailer go for? Asking for a friend.
