Should You Put RV’s On Lots In Mobile Home Parks?

There are 10,000 Baby Boomers retiring per day in the U.S. and a large percentage of those have a goal of downsizing as part of that new lifestyle adjustment. Given the fact that millions of these Baby Boomers already own RVs, the concept of simply selling their home and moving into an RV comes up fairly early in the conversation. But where can they place that RV to live in it full-time? Most RV parks don’t typically allow for full-time occupancy, instead having a stay limit of around 60 days or so. The only option for this housing concept are mobile home parks.

A Case Study On Making Money With Rural Mobile Home Parks

First, you have the urban core, then suburban markets encircling that core, and then finally, the exurban markets that are the next layer out.

What Is A Mobile Home “Roof-Over?

All pre-HUD homes (built prior to 1976) have flat roofs. However, some park residents decide that a flat roof is unattractive and does not drain well (which is true) and endeavor to build a new pitched roofline on their existing flat one. This is called a “roof-over,” and it is precisely as the name implies. In this video, we review the issues with this concept from a park owner’s perspective.

Uses For Single-Family Houses In Mobile Home Parks

Many mobile home parks began as side hustles for landowners who built the park directly behind their houses so they could watch over it. Half a century later, these homes are still sitting in fairly prominent positions, but no modern owner wants to live in them. Instead, they have potential for several different uses. In this video, Frank Rolfe discusses the possible options for these old structures.

Can You Successfully Place A Mobile Home Horizontally To The Street?

When dealing with smaller lots, one trick is to place two homes perpendicular to the street that stretch over the lots behind and then a third home horizontally in the remaining gap between those two homes and the opposing street. This is frequently called the “3 for 4” formation. But does that work in real life? In this video, we tour our park in Omaha, Nebraska in which we recently took delivery of several new homes and placed them parallel to the street and discuss the issues with this arrangement.

The Next Generation of Mobile Home Parks

The late Tony Hsieh (founder of Zappos and near-billionaire) had an affection for mobile home parks. One that was so strong he chose to leave his Las Vegas penthouse and become a resident of his trailer park creation called Airstream Village. Tony’s assistant gave us a tour of that property while he was still alive, and what was fascinating was how much effort Tony was putting into trying to perfect the “sense of community” and common areas. His vision was that he wanted all the residents to spend all their time together in a communal area and only go back to their trailers to sleep. The mobile home park was populated with a mixture of tiny homes and Airstreams and even included a communal pet llama.
