Abstract

"The object of this study was to determine the possibility of developing a mobile home park as a partial solution to the problem of inadequate housing in rural communities. The investigation involved the study of modern mobile homes and mobile home parks, mobile home dwellers, and the social and economic aspects of mobile home living. It was suggested that a properly designed and managed mobile home park can provide a satisfactory location for the placement of mobile homes. The small down payment and low monthly payments associated with purchasing a mobile home, along with the inherent mobility of mobile home living, render it an appealing form of housing. After considering the desired esthetic [sic] image of the mobile home park, safety and convenience of park occupants, and the social and economic considerations of mobile home park location and development, appropriate design criteria were recommended. Corresponding park management control procedures were then suggested to insure that the mobile home park is properly controlled and maintained"--Abstract, page ii.
