Trailer park chic… really

Could trailer park homes become an answer to skyrocketing real estate prices around the world? 

According to The Financial Times‘ William Little, more and more serious homebuyers are turning to trailer parks for their value, their space, and wait for it, their style.

“So popular are they becoming that the prefabricated residences, often seen as a form of caravan, are also beginning to lose their “trailer trash” image, especially as more people realise that they are built to high standards. Indeed, the name “park home” – derived from the fact they are often sited on park-like estates – was coined by Princess Margaret while visiting a caravan exhibition. They have had upward aspirations ever since.”
