Hi, can anyone recommend a nice mobile home park that we could find a space to put a new park model home on? It doesn't have to be on the beach, but within 5 miles would be great.

We want to live in an area that has weather "like" Brookings--the temperate, never too hot or cold kind of weather. From what I can tell, it looks like Southern coastal Oregon has a microclimate?

We'll be retired, so job availability isn't a concern.

I have not had much luck googling mobile home parks in Southern Oregon as far as being able to tell if they have open lots to put a new home on. Most results I get are for existing trailers or rv parks.

Thanks in advance if anyone can help!

Lisa

Have you considered finding a lot with a 'tear down' quality mobile home? You want to assure that you have a good well (or on a water system) and a septic system (or sewer connection). It is likely to be cheaper from a life-cycle POV.

This is may be too far north for you as it's just below Newport but you might want to check it out:

Park models are usually located in RV parks rather than mobile home parks so you may have missed some locations in your searches.

I remember when Osprey Point first opened. Many folks were excited about this resort.
Osprey Point RV Resort - Oregon's Most Ideal RV Resort

I think there is a Park Model area. Osprey is right on the lake, not far from ocean beaches & quad sand dunes,etc.

A lot of RV parks limit the number of days you can stay least they fall under Oregon Mobile Home laws.

Thanks alot to every who has responded so far...I have found that I was missing some by only doing mobile homes instead of RV parks when looking for park model locations.

One more thing, and let me preface this by saying I know it's hard to qualify...but about the weather...is there much of a difference between Brookings and Gold Beach? If so, what is it? Our #1 reason for choosing southern Oregon is the weather. We like temperate, cool, and wet. Rainy/foggy is fine with us. I've seen a couple of posts on other threads about Brookings getting into the 90's???? I thought that was unheard of, or at least that's what I saw on the weather websites.

Brookings looks nice but we have also found a resort called Turtle Rock in Gold Beach that's got us interested.

Again, thanks to everyone that comments. It helps.

Brookings rarely gets into the 90's, I town. If you go UP THE RIVERS on any of these coastal towns it can sometimes hit it. Gold beach is VERY WINDY as is PORT Orford. But if u live up the river on any of these then it's better. If u r looking for towns:
Bandon, where we live is perfect.
Brookings is next
& Hiouchi, Ca. Is next to crescent city, ca right next to the wild river.

I know turtle rock VERY well. It is a very pretty spot. It comes down to, do you want to live in a windier area? If I were choosing, I would never live in gold Beach or Port Orford. But, other people do....... So all personal preference. Gold beach is a very small town & ALOT longer drive to get anywhere larger if u need something.
