    This sounds good at first, but then you hear that there are only 4 tiny homes in this huge park which actually houses mostly RVs and campers, and seems to have a bout a 100 of those, so it is basically just an RV park claiming to be a tiny home park. I have been living legally in RV parks for just under 7 years now, and I have enjoyed the amenities that go with them such as showers, laundry facilities, and usually a little store. All the ones I have occupied so far are within walking distance to stores, groceries, banks, historic sites, etc. So if you want to live legally in a tiny home, and enjoy the tiny home living, park in an RV park.

      $700/mo site fees are pretty high, too. About twice what I’ve seen in many other areas.

        In 7 years, the highest rent I have paid monthly for a site for my tiny house at an RV court is $450, and that includes full hook up, amenities, wifi at my site, and rent. The lowest so far has been $375 for the same quality and a very nice park, just in a different city. $700 is very high, especially if it doesn’t include everything.

    My first concern would be who owns this park? My second concern would
    be is there some kind of rent control so the owners cannot gouge the residents every year with a rent increase?

    Sounds like a dream, until I saw the price, so much for tiny homes being affordable. I rent a 2 bdrm Apartment in Omaha Nebraska for 740 it includes a 50 dollar garage rental. One put a Tiny home on Wheels in a regular Trailer Park and pay way less. It just needs city hookups which you can do when you build it and skirting. To me paying lot rent that is as much as a house payment defeats the purpose of going tiny for most people who are doing it to be debt free as possible. Now your working like a dog to pay lot rent. Here I can buy an 80,000 dollar home and pay about 600 a month in mortgage, that amount includes Insurance, taxes, and Pmi. I have been looking at Tiny Homes for 2 yrs now, I look because I want a more affordable lifestyle with which I can live more frugally, work less, and stop making everyone else rich. Renting a lot for 700 dollars a month is not for me, to find a lot and pay $300 or less, with no amenities, is better to me and what I want. Years ago I lived in a real trailer and paid $90 lot rent for a 12 by 65. I understand prices have gone up a bit, but I started looking into tiny homes, for affordability. Tiny Home prices have gone up dramatically, and pple knowing its hard to find a spot to park them are now charging booku bucks to park one, now making buying a real house more affordable and less headache than a tiny. That is a shame. I understand this Is California but I also understand its northern california, and there is nothing there, unlike southern cal. It would be hard to find a job in the boonies to pay $700 amonth. I could see $500 a month, but 700 cant justify it. Sorry but as a single mom on a budget, it defeats the purpose of going Tiny for me, to pay anyone more than 300 a month for lot rent.

      No, the thing to understand is affordability isn’t a universal standard for everyone living everywhere. What’s considered affordable actually varies because average incomes and costs vary throughout the country…

      So it’s a mistake to make a direct comparison between dissimilar locations like California and Nebraska that have very different housing costs, average incomes, etc…

      What actually matters is that someone has access to options that allow them to have a much higher income than their costs…

      Otherwise it doesn’t work if getting a lower cost housing option also causes someone to have a lower income, which would then negate any benefits and is why you don’t just see everyone moving to lower cost areas from all the higher cost areas of the country…

      But even a higher cost option can work if it means access to a higher paying job that more than offsets the cost increase… Since the real point is to find a way to keep costs to a certain low percentage of one’s income but that’s not always going to be done the same way by everyone, everywhere…

      Especially, as choices effect things like lifestyle options, types of jobs, and what areas someone can or can’t choose to live… Along with other trade offs…

      There’s also more costs than just rent to consider… Food, amenities, utilities, access to other areas, transportation options, etc. also factor… as those other costs can add up to more than the rent or if most of those costs can be included in the rent and then it actually means you pay less in total…

      So considerations are often complicated but taking the time to figure them out can open more possibilities than there appears from a casual look at the options…

        Thanks James for your comment, I mentioned the difference by saying, “I know its in California but”. I also mentioned its in Northern California, which tells most people its not near the jobs, or any landmarks or things to do that southern cal has to offer. Therefore, its definitely over-priced for what your not getting, location. I understand its California and it is not nebraska or 20 years ago, again mentioned it in my original comment. But if your not near anything , why the price so high, its simply not worth it. In Omaha jobs are plentiful, why should one want a tiny home where jobs are not, you have to pay for it, dont. and that is one of the points i was making. Also most people looking for a tiny home are looking for a lifestyle, more freedom, if your a slave to a job because of your lot cost. That is not freedom. Simply put. Its over-priced, plain and simple. $500 a month I could see for being Cal and its lakeside living, 700 too much. Here we pay 200 lot rent, usually includes a pool. And as Chuck pointed out, would they raise the rent, or are you locked in? Simply not worth it, in my opinion.

          No, that’s inaccurate. There are jobs in this area and there are lots of things near it.

          Like Alex pointed out, it’s only about 2 hours from San Francisco, Palo Alto and Silicon Valley… 2 hours 30 minutes to Yosemite… 40 minutes from Stockton, and 1 hour from Sacramento.

          The address is 922 W Brannan Island Rd, Isleton, CA 95641…

          There’s also other details like the fact it’s right next to a river…

          Remember, this is California… The state has been dealing with multiple years of repeated droughts, water shortages, and increased threat of forest fires that has already destroyed many homes… and the amenities include access to a marina so residents can boat and fish on the river at their convenience…among other amenities not listed, like good restaurants within walking distance, the fact the area gets a cool breeze from the river that helps keep the area cool and comfortable for most of the year, etc.

          While Northern California also has Stanford University and University of California, Berkeley… among other things that may interest different people…

          Different lifestyles and situations means there are different costs for someone to consider and thus different combination of things that will effect their choices… Along with factors like how likely a given situation will change over time as things like local economy, jobs, health, etc. are not absolutes and can change significantly over time…

          Again, it’s complicated but can be worth taking the time to figure it out and not over simplify it because that tends to be very misleading…

    Everyone complaining about the price… Did you read that it’s a resort, has a pool, tennis court and marina? And that it’s in CA where the cost of living is higher?

    The tiny house movement isn’t just a place where people want to build homes from recycled materials and live next to rent free. There’s room for those who want to down scale but still have more upscale amenities both in their home and site.

    It’s about 2 hours from San Francisco, Palo Alto and Silicon Valley.

    It’s 40 mins from Stockton, 1 hr from Sacramento.

    The exact address is 922 W Brannan Island Rd, Isleton, CA 95641.

    • Alex

      2 hours 30 mins to Yosemite. There’s lots you can do from here. Pricey yes, but worth looking into because it could be worth it.
