US park inventory

Hi everybody,

I am trying to get some facts and figures about the industry and am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. What I need is the following information:

The total inventory or a really good estimate of the total number parks in the US by year since 2000. How many parks since 2000 that have opened and closed. And also, and I know this is really stretching it, the total number of lots in parks in existence by year since 2000.

I have been on the US census site but as far as I can tell, this gives numbers for all of the mobile homes in the country, not just in the parks.

Hopefully this is everything I need. Thanks for your help.

You might contact the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI). They have a decent amount of statistics.
