I have to say, after watching the documentary on Netflix, as well as hours of videos on the internet, I like the idea. It’s good for the environment, easy on the wallet in comparison to a traditional 30 year mortgage, and mobile so you don’t pay near the taxes and you can move wherever whenever the feeling strikes you. Plus several of them looked pretty sweet!
I can certainly see the downsides for say a large family, but for single folks or couples without kids it seems a viable option to, at the very least save up some cash for a normal sized house that they can pay for in cash rather then be stuck with payments for the majority of their adult lives.
I’m thinking about trying it one of these days. Buy a little patch of land somewhere with a pond and some forest, grow a little garden, get some pet goats to keep the grass trimmed, preferably the fainting kind for obvious reasons. Call me simple but it don’t get much better than that. Unless you add pretty lady to the mix. That usually improves it.
