Why are people that live in mobil homes Discriminated against???? They are forbidden to put mobil homes on land if purchased (due to local building permits) against the size ( square feet) is always a couple of feet bigger than any mobil home are!!!
There are apartment rental laws to keep landlords from raising rent to high, but no laws for trailer parks these people are on there own!!! And are mostly people on fixed incomes. But no one cares there (trailer trash) is the term used sad!!!!
