I was on Jesusita trail about a week before the Jesusita Fire started - and it didn't appear to need any maintenance. Not sure if that was already a result of the "trail gnomes" keeping it regularly maintained, but it sounds like more maintenance was done only a couple days before the Fire broke out, which seems totally unnecessary, in my opinion.

There's no photo caption for the first pic in this article, seems a bit misleading, as that pic does not look like a home in a park. Also, only in SB would you pay almost half a million $ for a mobile home. I can definitely see the benefits of a getting a new custom home without having to run over budget, deal with contractors, architects, permits, soil sampling, etc. However, these people are comparing apples to oranges when determing that they got a "good deal", because they do not own any land and they are comparing the price they paid with home prices in the SB area that including owning a parcel of land and a home, the parcel likely being worth more than the home. Right now there are plenty of places under 500k in the SB area, although they are not new, you get the land and the home for same price as what they paid for just the mobile home. Also, it took a while for the article to explain that the area these folks live in is for people 55+, that excludes a decent chunk of new potential homeowners, so to pitch this idea as an affordable way to live is unrealistic for most people. And they never mention how much their monthly association/maitenance fees are!
