My mom has lived in a Trailer Park for as long as I can recall.
Growing up in that place was absurd & I don’t ever anticipate living like that again. Mom is nice about maintaining her lot & her home but several in the place are not. I feel that they feel it is only a “temporary” home so they don’t care for it as everyone do a conventional house. Mom even petitioned the Park Manager so she could put up privacy fencing on her lot. This way, she didn’t have to look at the neighbors mess in their yard all the time, then anyway, there are some advantages to living in a mobile home. The upkeep is minimal for the most part & so long as you keep up with repairs to the skirting around them, your plumbing & HVAC duct are safe from detriment. Last year, there were several drastic storms that blew through our area & it detrimentd part of my mom’s skirting. The real concern came when that, in turn, detrimentd the HVAC duct for the Heating & Air Conditioning system. You see, the HVAC duct for the Heating & Air Conditioning system is situated underneath the trailer. This is the only way it can be installed & they need to be protected from the elements at all times. Animals can also get under the trailer & wreak havoc on the system & the insulation around the HVAC duct. Mom had to contact the Heating & Air Conditioning specialist to come out & maintenance this before she could turn the system back on. There are Heating & Air Conditioning companies that deal exclusively with Mobile Homes as the component & upgrade are easily weird from that of a conventional home. I am thrilled she has someone she knows & can trust to toil on her system.
