I did many years ago....in Junction City Kansas
I loved it....

We rented a 2 bedroom...10 wide..with a roofed patio.
There was a kids playground and wading pool...lots of trees..

It taught me good housekeeping skills too.
As soon as you finish with something...stow it quickly.

Sure! I didn't grow up in one, but my current and previous residence have been trailers. The last one wasn't in a "park" or "court" and I really liked it. This one.. not so much. Double wide... WOW!

I rented a little 30ft 5th wheel for a couple years. It was tiny but it had a big covered deck and an awsome view because it was up on a hill. I loved that little place exept having to go outside to turn the hot water heater on on cold mornings.

I lived in one that had been added onto. The best part wasn't the house. It was situated on the side of a hill with an upper lot and the lower lot sperated right down the middle by a canal that ran along the side of the hill and we had well over 30 trees along side the canal including some huge old cottonwoods. Under those trees it was a little hidden oasis in the south eastern Utah desert. The 11 years I spent there were some of my best years.

After my first divorce I bought and re-did a tiny one sitting right on a lake.
I still miss it...and my hammocK!

Now I own a 32 ft travel trailer...it is parked in storage, but honestly I want to move into it....just where to put it?

I LOVE CAMPING

The motor home I have now isn't quite big enough to live in but, I'll be tempted in living in one at least to go south in the winter time!!

That sounds awesome! So, has anyone ever had to seal a roof on one? Ours is leaking water into the walls and we had a really bad mold problem this winter. So, I'll have to seal the roof before next winter if we end up staying here. They got us on a rent to own scam.

Take roofing cement and go along any cracks in the seams and around your vents

They sell a sealer type paint that's flexible. I use it on my Motor home should stop your leaks.

I told the landlords that I was gonna seek "legal advice" and they said they are gonna seal the roof, lol... I wonder if they are gonna fix the mold/water damage as well. I'm actually still waiting to hear from an attorney.

Here's a pic.
