Hi all-
Not trailers please - I work in disaster recovery - including dealing with  
the aftermath of the hurricanes in Florida and all along the East Coast last  
year.  No plain trailers.  
How about single or double-wide manufactured housing on a permanent  
foundation with the wheels removed and with HUD-standard roof tie-downs?   Such 
housing can be affordable but a far better investment and more  
than trailers. Not to mention easier to get financing and  permits for. I think 
you could use an extra doublewide for a common house.   Might even be able to 
get a grant from FEMA mitigation funds for a safe room for  a disaster 
shelter that could also be used for other community functions.
