I am relatively new to MHPs and have been working doing the maintenance at a friend’s park that he recently purchased as a primer for when I hopefully buy in the next 6-18 months. The park in question had previous bad management and needed several homes brought in. I have a construction background so this has been easy but still eye opening.
Now to my question. How much park equipment & infrastructure does a “typical” park need? I am looking at being a hands on, off site, owner operator. I have found having my small loader backhoe on site immensely useful. From digging ditches for new gas and electrical lines for newly brought in trailer. Snow removal, gravel road grading, site prep, spreading of asphalt millings, etc. The park has a 12’x12’ building used as a shed. His other park has a 36’x36’ garage where supplies and equipment are kept. I know every park is unique and everyone has their own management style. I hoping to find out what other operators have found works for them.
