I was in a double wide the other day for a party, it was very nice. The trailer park was also very nice, with lots of space. But that was the only time I've been in a trailer park that didn't feel trashy. I've heard of a lot of people getting a nice trailer and putting it on property and fixing up the place real nice. I don't think that's trashy at all..but then the tornado factor is what scares me. I think of the 3 little pigs. If my house is gonna blow down, I want a basement.
We just bought one couldn't tell the difference from this from a house from the inside. I have a huge kitchen which is something I never had before. This is a 2003 16x80 and we just finished putting wood laminate floors in it and I am in the process of renovating the kitchen. I love it when I am done it will be gorgeous and it helps we live by a lake it is gorgeous to do the dishes in the morning and watch the swans swimming by out back.
Financially it was a good choice we were tired of renting and we will have this paid off in 3 more years then no house payment besides the usual lot rent but I cannot complain paying so lil a month. I totally hate the stereotype about "trailer park/trash" I have seen some mobile homes nicer than a few houses. I call this my Mobile Mansion lol. This place everyone takes pride in their homes and take very good care inside and out.
we lived in one growing up til i was in 3rd grade then we got a house. and for the first 5 years of my marriage i lived in one also. last year we bought a double wide mobile home. i don't care. if you take care of it it can be just fine. i have grandparents and other relatives who live in a mobile home and they are clean and tidy inside, so it's not a big deal.
Quoting shadow_lark:I would as long as it isn't metal. Im a snob like that. idk if i would call them trashy, but there is definitly a stigma attached to them.
Quoting pasteeater:I have a modular home. Some say it's called a mobile home some don't. I say it's my home and I love it. It's three bedrooms, three full baths two car garage the master bedroom is huge. You can fit three queen beds in there. There's two in there now. We have a walk through closet that is as wide as the room. My bathroom has a huge spa tub. We have a fire place but never use it. It's too hot.
