I am relocating to the Carlisle area for employment and am thinking of buying a mobile home in a park with a rented lot. I like rural life but can't really afford a regular home. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience living in one. I have owned a mobile home before but on my own land and I am concerned about all the rules and regulations. I am also wondering if there is a lot of crime. I don't seem to be able to find statistics for the parks. So far in driving around I am looking at Spring Garden Estates in Carlisle and Country Manor West in Carlisle. I am also looking at Shippensburg Mobile Estates in Shippensburg and am concerned that there seems to be a lot of homes for sale there, although the park looks really nice. I am over 55 but those parks don't seem to have much for sale. Any suggestions or information is greatly appreciated as I am currently in a hotel and really need to get situated.
