Would you rather have a trailer house on 3 acres of land or a nice house on a fondation with a half acre lot?

I actually had to choose between the two recently. We went with the trailer on land. I didn't think 3 acres was very much before this, but our yard is huge. We are going to build in a few years and I really wanted enough land to keep my pig. I also plan on getting some chickens and growing a garden. Which would you choose?

  • trailer 3 acres. With all that land, you could build a nice house on it eventually. I like my privacy & a 1/2 acre wouldn't cut it for us. PLUS, i NEED to have a garden, i could grow some serious crops on 3 acres!!!

  • The Trailer House on 3 Acres. I enjoy having space and not being crowded in a neighborhood.

  • Trailer w/ all that land. People get too hung up on "living in a trailer" I moved from a very nice 4 bedroom 4 bath house, brand new, top of the line. I moved to a trailer ( double wide ). We are downsizing .... we LOVE IT! I will be a SAHM to my soon to be 3 kids - so the need for the downsize.

    But, I wish I had more land .... But its good for now :)

  • House. It's dang cold around here, and I've never been in a trailer that was warm enough when temps hit 30 below.
