I'm looking to retire. Does anyone live in a MH park in the subject area.? What's it like and is there any words of wisidom you might have. "Never do this.... or always do this" type stuff. Probably spring of 2011. I'll be looking around on my 2 annual fishing trips in May and proabably August. I may not spend winters there..... I'll a small van type RV and may spend winters in the Lake Havasu/Lake Meade area.....

thanks for the help....

there are some nice parks in each location. There is the threat of tornado's, wind, and hail in all. I lived in a couple MHP in the area many yrs ago (around Loveland). I'm currently looking to build or buy a MHP and convert to a ROC (resident owned community). These really help the residents keep costs low and values are higher. I haven't thoroughly looked for these in NoCo, but it is worth considering. I like MHP on slight hills where each home is 'sunken' to grade on at least one side, so fully handicapped accessible (just in case, you slip 'fly-fishing').

My mom lived in Loveland and did winters in Havasu area for about 10 yrs, then moved to NM (split the difference / heat & distance.) She has a Roadtrek, I have a Rialta. both small and economical RV's, ~ 20 mpg.

While I prefer NoCo, you can always consider the PNW if fishing is king. My friend retired to NW corner of WA and has 20 lakes within 20 miles. Fly fishing pressure = ZERO. Canada is 30 miles away, and a never ending territory of great fishing. While I grew up on the Buckhorn Creek (Masonville, CO), and fishing was OK..., most good fishing is in WY, and they don't much care for Colo 'greenies' (License plates), invading their territory. I spent far more time enjoying WYO than Colo, after about 1970.
