I plan to travel across the country with a small travel trailer visiting every tourist trap and every back road possible. I joke that I’m leaving the day my daughter goes off to college but I have every intention of pulling her right along with me. We may even take the ole’ man, who knows?
One of the many places I want to experience is Dos Palmas in Patagonia, Arizona. The website describes Dos Palmas as having a 1958 Spartan Imperial Villa trailer home that you will find spacious, charming and comforting. Dos Palmas sits on a wooded private lot in the heart of Patagonia, with a covered patio that runs its entire 50-foot length.
For less than $100 a night, I can sleep in a Spartan Imperial Villa?
Alright, where do I sign?
I found out about the Dos Palmas through a blog called 12 Legs Travel. 12 Legs is about a guy, a girl, 2 ugly dogs and 12 months on the road (their description, not mine). They stayed in the Dos Palmas for a few nights, strictly by accident. Their post about this “motel” is very insightful and thought-provoking. Here’s what the writer thinks about living in a ‘trailer’:
“…Maybe there’s a theory to be posited here: that the simpler your home, the less time you will spend inside it — but the more rewarding that time will be. Big houses with lots of stuff in them only tie you down, make you soft, hinder you from meeting new people and seeing new scenes. Maybe the world needs more trailers…..”
I couldn’t agree more!

The Dos Palmas
seems to be one of many ‘mobile home’ motel establishments. It’s a place that caters to us romantic types. You know, those who absolutely LOVE vintage mobile homes!
Have you ever stayed in a mobile home motel? Do you have any big traveling plans that involve a home on wheels? We’d love to hear from you!
as always…Thanks so much for reading Mobile Home Living!
