Re: How to easily cover your paneled walls

I used this product as a backsplash in my kitchen, the pattern that looks like tin plate tiles. I painted it with Valspar Candy Apple Red in satin finish (I think). I went over primed vinyl board, and the only problem I had with it was with the seams not sealing, but I found a wallpaper seam glue an...

Crazy Neighbor Stories

If fences make good neighbors, what do sledgehammers make? Yesterday my daughter text me that the police are in the trailerpark again. Fighting couple next door? No... (although they were fighting too) It was the lady down the street, apparently her neighbor is installing a fence between the two tra...

Re: I am not trailer trash, I am trailerlicious!

Dean3 - The neighbors are supposed to be out by October 31st, but they seem to be like a bad fungus and never go away. My kids and my friend's (yes I made a friend in my park) want to set up a haunted house in my yard and scare people. Harry - Too funny, if she asks me again, (and she will because s...

Re: I am not trailer trash, I am trailerlicious!

My one neighbor's (across the street) daughter likes to park in front of my trailer, which I told her she could during a party. The other day, the old lady's car is parked in front of my trailer, no one asked if I minded and they left it there all night and most of the next day (the parking in front...

Re: I am not trailer trash, I am trailerlicious!

Update on the neighbor situation: The park management knows about the 11 people in the one trailer. They are working on evicting them. They had a meeting with the owner of the trailer - he said he couldn't kick the other family out, because he is trying to get back with his girlfriend (I just say WH...

Re: I am not trailer trash, I am trailerlicious!

My neighbor gave me her copy of the park rules. Interesting stuff and it seems they only apply to some of the people in here. I am supposed to be charged $25 to have a dog, the neighbor above me and one down the street are being charged the neighbors across the street aren't. I told the trailer park...

Re: I am not trailer trash, I am trailerlicious!

I was saying before that people in the park are getting evicted, but apparently you can go to court and pay your rent up to date and you get to stay. I have asked the park manager for a list of the rules or regulations several times so I know my rights and what I can and can't do. They always have a...

Re: I am not trailer trash, I am trailerlicious!

Yanita - I agree there is a stigma to the "biker" also, I don't have a problem with Harley's - my son's father just bought one and I know some really nice guys that drive them. The previous owner kind of encouraged the bad ass biker image - he had nazi tattoos, flags and weapons on the wall. The onl...

Cast Iron Clawfoot Tub

Can you put a cast iron clawfoot tub in a mobile home? I was wondering because I noticed that my tub and bathroom sink are both plastic as well as the plumbing and the faucets. I am not sure if there would be an issue with weight (or if the original owner went cheap when picking fixtures), would I h...

Re: Resilient Vinyl Flooring

Sundry1 - I was at Home Depot the other day and they have resilent vinyl that looks like tile, which I assume will attach to the wood planks. Also, the reviews I read from customers say that it is perfect for bathrooms. Trudi - Glad to hear that someone actually did this and it didn't look like a bo...

Re: I am not trailer trash, I am trailerlicious!

In my park, they are working on cleaning it up - they are evicting the non-payers and getting rid of the run-down, trailers. About half the park is very quiet - you never see anyone. There is a section that opens to fields and woods owned by the cemetary (no graves), the trailers and yards are well-...

I am not trailer trash, I am trailerlicious!

Why is there still such a stigma to living in a Mobile Home? I found out a "friend" of mine has been telling people I am nothing but trailer trash. The funny thing is she couldn't get into my park because she is a convicted felon. I just don't get the attitude of people. Am I less of a person becaus...

Re: Cats using flower beds as litterbox!!!

I was thinking a bb gun. Would that be wrong even if they are pooping right next to my car door? (I am kidding, I would never shoot any living thing unless it was to protect my family) I am going to fence in my little yard, so I won't have to tie the dog up. I can't wait to see the first cat that co...

Cats using flower beds as litterbox!!!

My neighbor's cats have decided my veggie garden, flower beds, and driveway are good to use as a litter box. I tried putting down mulch to stop them from pooping in my flower beds, it didn't work, then stuck barbeque skewers pointed side up in my garden, that didn't work. I broke down and bought a c...

Resilient Vinyl Flooring

I own a 2005 Fleetwood 14x56 mobile home. The living room is currently carpeted and looking nasty, so I want to replace it with laminate flooring. While researching laminate flooring, I came across resilient vinyl flooring - which are basically peel and stick planks that look like wood. It had very ...
