How to Pick a Trailer Park. Whether retiring or just making a move, deciding where you will move to is a big decision. Trailer parks can provide a relaxed style of living within a community of like dwellers. If you are opting to simplify your living conditions by buying a mobile home and moving to a trailer park, you will want to consider these pointers when choosing a park location.
Decide if you want to purchase a mobile home with land or rent one that is already established in a trailer park. Developers have subdivisions offering both. Your land should have an active source of water and have access to utilities.
Review the rules and guidelines of each of the locations you have chosen to consider. Make sure if you are purchasing a mobile home that it will fit in available lots in the trailer park and that it meets all the park's requirements.
Take time if possible to go and visit the communities. Seeing the area in person will have a greater effect than any brochure.
Determine if the trailer park is located near any supply stores or shopping centers and attractions if these are important in your selection process.
List all of the features you want to enjoy within your community. Compare each trailer park location and choose the one that matches your needs. Weigh all of your options well because your location will later determine your mobile home's property value.
