I doubt that you will find a park that will accept this 10X50. It is most likely to old for a park to accept it and the size is a hindrance. Also, the price is way high for this Mobile considering you have to move it.
I may be the only one on the this Board that does have some 10X50’s. These are in Southern Cal. where I buy them in the Park for $1,000 or less. I was selling them for $5,000 with $500 down. But as I get them back, most people don’t stay in this size for more than a year, I am now selling them for $7,000 with $1,000 down. Amazing but true, the prices of these old buggers have gone up as home prices escalate in SoCal!
Again Todd, this is only in SoCal. In Arizona, where I buy now, I wouldn’t touch them. It’s all about knowing your market.
After all this blah blah, my recommendation is to pass on this one. Use your $1,000 and the probable $1,500 in moving costs to buy a 2/1 for $2,500 already set up in a park.
