The one we were in was really nice, we were on the outside of the park, think there were police out there once on a domestic disturbance.
Same with the park my grandmother lived in for years.
One thing that stood out (vs., e.g, Malaysia, Vietnam, et al.) was the visibility of "couples" composed of (usually) old white foreign guys and young Filippinas.
I asked a friend who had lived in Philippines what he thought, and his answer is worth sharing: "Rather than one single explanation, I will throw out several: Long colonial history, including long acceptance of international relationships, e.g., Macarthur and his mistress.
I also cut several areas out for friends to park theirs when they come in. I’m single and basically just need 3 things out of it. This obviously depends on what kind of RV you’re getting e.g. I found an older Class A RV on Crag’s List here in Spokane, WA. It has begun to get warm and I just pulled out the old carpet and the dinett seats and table moved the couch from one side to the other had a mechinic help get it started and we will get the breaks bleed this weekend.
Ever in bayou country drop me a line and have a taste of what RV’ing Life is really about. Place to sleep, place to cook, internet connection.
I bought 15 acres and put in my own utilities and dug some ponds and cut some trails for riding and am living the life. Of course if you are going to be driving a lot, there’s gas to consider.
I have several lots on a local golf course and wou;dn’t even consider moving there now. Wondering how overall costs (from an ERE standpoint) would compare to living in an apartment at ,000/yr. If you add RV payments to the picture it may change. There’s certainly more adventure in that than staying at a camp.
OTOH if you bought a home in a declining area, you’re quite stuck. There are so many snowbirds and after a while they get tired of travelling and just stay here. But Jacob is right that it is easy to move out if the place is bad, much easier than owning a house or renting an apartment. I didn’t do it and later on some residents got busted for a major theft, drug, and prostitution ring.
The year round rent was half of the month to month rent. I would recommend asking the police to find out how often they have to visit. If I had bought that mobile home I would have had a very hard time getting rid of it. Leaving my house and considering options for living less expensively.
