Schwarzenegger funny thinking is that he is afraid the home owners to block the park owners, but he allows the park owners to block home owners to sell their mobile home by increasing rent unlimitedly and because of ""why buy a home in a park where it could convert to condo's tomorrow."

Tailored trailers: the return of the mobile home
However, its not all rosy: landowners wield a lot of power over their sites and, its claimed, often harass and intimidate residents.The Mobile Home Act of 1983 was supposed to give homeowners security but theres a need for more protection from unscrupulous landowners, says Ball.
Site landlords are also entitled to a 10 per cent commission on the sale of a home but many try to prevent residents selling on the open market. This, says Ball, is because they prefer to sell directly to new residents, getting a chance to renegotiate rents and profit from the entire sale.(pdf format)

Jeff Ackerman: Elderly find mobile homes anything but mobile (PDF)
The Union of Grass Valley
I'm a HUGE fan of older people and unless we at least consider some sort of rent control on our local mobile home parks, many of our older people will be homeless soon. For them, it's a race between death and despair.
What some of you may not know is that there are hundreds of older people trapped inside their so-called mobile homes today. After all, most of those homes really aren't mobile. And, if you could move one, it would cost more to do it than the home is worth today...
Fear is a powerful tool, as most of us today are well aware. And some of these mobile home park owners seem to know how to use fear to their advantage. An 85-year-old is no match for a smooth-talking suit from Los Angeles.

Mobile homes should be banded in every state! You can buy a modular home to which is 500% safer for the same money and doesn't decrease in value. The problem is that the builders and mobile home dealers are greedy people that don't live in mobile homes. They don't care if your family or members of your family die in these traps ! But as long as the federal government and the American people allow them to operate they will continue. So if you live in one ! Stop blaming anyone for scamming you ! The same way you brought that trailer ! You can buy a modular home..

I have been documenting for 10 years about this very same problem. I made it clear even if I lose in court I will publish this book about these types of scams and the people involved whether they like it or not. Funny to me is I actually learned how to scam them but I would prefer the legal route and have them held accountable in the end. Keep in touch I am almost done.....
