Mobile home owners face hidden risks

More than 500,000 California families find their path to affordable home ownership through the purchase of a mobile home or manufactured home, but an estimated one-third lack proper title and registration – putting each of those homeowners at risk.

In an effort to encourage all mobile and manufactured homeowners to secure proper title, the state is offering a limited-time program that waives many back fees and taxes.

San Luis Obispo mobile home park debuts ‘tiny house’

When you take a right turn off Higuera Street and onto South Street in San Luis Obispo, you’ll quickly come upon the Village Mobile Home Park. What used to be dotted with dozens of 1950s mobile homes and trailers is now being transformed into energy-efficient manufactured homes, mobile homes, and one tiny home.

For $1,100 a month, the 190 square foot house, which is classified as a recreational vehicle, will give a tenant pretty much everything an apartment could, with the addition of a yard and two parking spaces. The only catch, it’s much smaller.
