Being a pet owner, (two geriatric border terriers), I am familiar with the comment lament of pet owners–a lot of places do not allow pets. Anywhere from parks to rental houses, a LOT of people and places do not like large pets. In many cases it is quite understandable since they can be destructive if not properly trained.
To kind of counter this problem with large pets, why don’t you advertise for someone with small pets. Obviously not having to sell to someone with pets would be the optimal solution, but if you put out an ad that states in the title, for example, “SMALL PETS WANTED, Owners, too!”, you might get prospects that the PM will approve. Just about every veterinarian we have ever been to has a bulletin board in their office. Just ask if you can put a 3x5 card with your MH info on their bulletin board(s). If you place the cards in the vets offices that are near your MH, you might catch an apartment renter who is looking for a bit more space for themselves and their small pet(s).
Hope this helps.
