Letter from Dar Sharp
Mobile homes – December 1999 – Colorado Central Magazine
The Dewey Linze article [p. 2, October 1999] struck a chord. I am a closet trailer court dweller. I grew up in trailer houses because Dad was working on most of the dams along the Columbia River. Like gypsies we would travel from job to job, often keeping the same neighbors from Trailer Park to Trailer Park. We always owned our home. Wasn’t much but it was ours. When I left home the first thing I did was buy a small trailer and park it next to the college I was attending. I have never rented and I’m proud of that. When you rent you are just paying someone else’s mortgage.
