What a long hard road it's been: My mini home finally finds a green trailer park to live in.

The fundamental problem was again, the fact that there was nowhere to put it. The minihome is legally a recreational vehicle, a trailer, and trailers go in parks.

I spent a lot of time trying to convince developers that the business had to do what Toyota did: create a new, upscale brand, a Lexus of trailer parks. I prepared endless business plans showing that there was a huge market for green, healthy small homes in green, sustainable environments and that the trailer park model, where you own the unit and lease the land, made so much sense.
