"How many old tires (on the roof) per mobile home in your neck of the woods? "

Mobile homes take a bad rap. Lot of them are anchored, have pools, screen porches front & back and are darn nice.

As a New Yorker, I was appalled when I heard my folks were moving to a mobile home.

Then I got there, and to say it was an upgrade on the condo they moved out of is just too mild a statement.

Over 1/2 acre lot, 3 bedrooms/2bath, gold fish pool, bananna, orange, lemon and mango trees, beautiful kitchen. Just a real nice place. Not to say being able to hear everything through the walls is Nirvanna, but for a retired couple that ain't usually a major problem.

The smaller 'real' homes across the creek in the backyard cost $200 more, and the taxes are higher to match.

You get down to Florida, in this case St. Cloud, and some of the mobile home communities are darn nice. I imagine the same is true for any relatively warm weather state.
