We have been talking a lot here at Mobile Home Living concerning the Tiny Home Movement. We even featured some cool designs recently that makes downsizing look good. Now we have come across an entire manufactured home park that is taking the tiny home movement to the masses. The Palm Canyon Mobile Club, in Palm Springs California encourages simplified living in a big way. It’s already been featured in articles on Tiny House Talk, Curbed and Apartment Therapy and we couldn’t wait to share it with you as well!
Tiny Homes That Don’t Seem Tiny
These tiny homes range from 600-900 feet but have all the features of homes twice their size. Also, the community isn’t limited to just tiny homes; there are older “vintage” mobile homes on the property as well. In the coming weeks, we hope to share with you some of our favorite finds from the park!
This Isn’t Your Grandma’s Mobile Home Park
Long gone are the days of mobile home parks being nothing more than row after row of mobile homes. The Palm Canyon Mobile Club gives each home a nice size yard, decking, and enough space to provide your own personal style. All while enjoying the gorgeous surrounding landscape of the Palm Springs area.
Another plus of this park? It’s not a 55+ park like many of the newer ones seem to be. That means families and couples are welcome. For the lot fee of $650, all of the amenities on the property are included. This also includes the basic utilities and grounds maintenance. According to the article in Tiny Home Talk, that is close to what you would pay in fees for a condo in the same area. That, along with the average price of one of these tiny homes being around $126,000 makes this a great deal for the Palm Springs region.
So is this where mobile home parks are headed? We think so. Especially in more urban areas where homeowners are starting to see the value in manufactured homes but still want all the plush amenities that condo living features. This type of manufactured home park is great for the future of manufactured homes and just another sign that the stigma surrounding these homes are fading!
Be sure to be on the lookout as we feature some of the homes in the Palm Canyon Mobile Club community in the coming weeks.
