What I appreciate about mh park residents - Posted by Philip

Even though many people see folks in mh parks as low on the social scale…I don’t. I see even the poor ones as just different and let me tell you why.
They appreciate being out of town. In my area that is where 99 out of 100 parks are located.
These people have some degree of a desire to be Lord of their own Castle…even if it has to be small or inexpensive.
They would rather live with a little autonomy, compared to apartment dwellers and that is good.
Many mh folks do their own work on their homes and are proud of what they have done.
Some of them will actually work hard…where some folks in the “snob hill” part of town are sitting on a pile of “old money” and just growing complacent in their wealth. They are in a 500k home and don’t have the strong individualism of someone in a 2k mobile.
Many of these folks have worked their tail off and just had some bad turns. Some things were avoidable some not. But just the same they get up and go to work knowing they will never have the education or ability to “move on up”.
I am speaking, of course, about a certain part of park residents.
I got more, but this is too long already.
