All the advantages of a tiny house at a fraction of the
cost! 

Imagine what you could do with your time if you
didn't have to spend $16,000 a year on rent or a mortgage. Old
single-wide mobile homes can often be found for free (and installed for a
couple of thousand dollars) in rural areas, so trailersteading is akin
to dumpster-diving. A trailer allows you to live without debt, to keep
your ecological footprint to a minimum with energy bills at or below the
national average, and even to blend right in alongside
traditional-house dwellers after a few years.

Trailersteading profiles thirteen mobile-home dwellers
who have used trailers as a stepping stone toward achieving their
dreams. Some have spent the cash saved to expedite renovations involving
extra insulation, pitched roofs, classy interiors, and even basements,
while the found money has allowed others to go off the grid. Many also
took advantage of a low-cost housing option to pursue their passions,
becoming full-time homemakers or homesteaders.
In addition to
the case studies, this book presents easy methods of minimizing the
negative sides of trailer life and accentuating the positive. For
example, did you know a single-wide is easy to retrofit for passive
solar heating? That a simple plant-covered trellis can break up the
blockiness of the trailer's external appearance? Learn which parts of
installing and upgrading your trailer are easy for a DIYer and which
parts should be left to the experts, along with how to cheaply heat and
cool a mobile home.

This was an interesting read with some informative aspects. I didn't agree with the author on some of her perspective but do appreciate books that encourage debt free living and disconnecting ourselves from the unhealthy American cultural standards our country has become so engaged in.

I loved this book! E..ven though I do not own my own little piece of paradise and my mobile home is in a "trailer park"...... I bought a gem of an older mobile home, already updated and cheap! My lot is on a back corner with sufficient yard and personal space. This book embodies my goal of living inexpensively and that to me, time is more important than money..
