    Hi All!Well, before I get too far,

    I should clarify that I am *hoping* to be living in a mobile home soon. As you can see from the pix below, the seller has done a wonderful job on the space! I would say the home is about 400 sq ft, give or take. Given the upgrades I think his price is terrific, especially since...

    Yesh, I Live In a Trailer...

    It's a nice one though. 3BR 2BTH. It's really big too. Our landlords let us decorate it any way we wanted (which was great because the decor looked like ****). It used to have old borders and nasty, poorly done sponged paint splotches all over the walls... now the walls have a...

    Love My Mobile Home!

    I bought for under 50k and while everyone I know is renting places at 800-1000 bucks a month, I live in a rent controlled $210 a month with free water and sewer mobile home park.

    Love My Country Home!

    I have had so much snobbery from "real house owners" I have to say. My 61 x 26, 2bed/2 bath studio style MH is WONDERFUL! Till they can put a "real home" on frames and travel it down the highway for miles, set it back up in another location and not have to re-build the entire...
