I am considering moving to the Springs and was wondering about the mobile home parks there. Is there one to stay away from over the others? One that is better? I have animals too. Any information would be great.

I haven't heard about any particular Mobile Home park being worse than another. One of the main things I would recommend thinking about for a Mobile Home Park in terms of location is how close to a creek it is - some of them are well within flood plains and that bears consideration. Resale value on mobile homes in this part of the country is pretty much very bad. Unlike some parts of the country where living in manufactured homes is common, it is not so here, and they depreciate quickly like a camper would. How old are you? There are some parks targeted toward seniors 55+ if that interests you. In general, there are some parts of town that are considered more 'desirable' than others, but mobile homes in particular are not known for high crime but are likely to have fairly transient clientele and not being very highly maintained.

They are mobile home parks. They are not good, anywhere, ever.

Otowi, when you say they are not known for high crime, would you care to define the levels of high. I haven't dealt with the mobile homes in CS, but I did deal with those areas while living in a previous city and it was the center of the areas crime.

What I mean lurtsman, is that if you look at the city crime map, and check the addresses of the occurrences of crimes on the map, very few are in mobile home parks. They are considerably more likely to be at certain apartment complexes or neighborhoods. The mobile home parks just aren't popping up with regularity to where I could identify any sort of trend or pattern. They seem to be pretty quiet.

I don't think anyone is under the impression that mobile home parks are high class living. I do think I confirmed that with my comments about having transient clientele and not so great maintenance, low resale value, poor locations like flood plains, etc. The op indicated an interest in mobile park living and was wanting to know if any have a particular reputation over others. I think the answer to that is no, there are not any with particular reputations.
