So your idyllic future is living in a used mobile home in Florida?  To each his own.  But personally, I'd aim a bit higher. 

555, are you kidding?

In the US there is nothing higher than Trailer Trash.

This may sound radical, but I am thinking I could move to Florida and live in a senior mobile home park for not much more than I spend here.  You can purchase a used mobile home in one of these parks for next to nothing because when the owners die, the children are not old enough to live in them and they can't afford to keep paying the lot rent on them. 

Although I make well over 100,000 baht, I almost never spend any more than that living here in Thailand.  I did the math and found I could be living in a mobile home in Florida and still not be spending much more than 100,000 baht ($3,200.00) to live there.  Being my income is significantly higher than that, I will be making the move as soon as my Thai wife gets her approval for a green card, which should be sometime this Summer. 

I guess your wife would have to be a senior too? Or not?

i'll play the devil's advocate...... first, the manager of the park can be crazy and make your life crazy (no, never lived there, but stayed at some when i did extensive traveling).....fines all the time, crazy rules, and they really own you on everything.   one place checked internet usage on each person, then banned people.  i'm not a fan of that.  then the people who live there.  10 kids in a trailer....one guy drinks all day....one guy talks to your wife all day...you get the idea.  i'd never do it.  if you want to leave, they may charge you a zillion months.  

 

I'm not a big fan of tiny homes, but more so than a trailer park.  or a nice townhome, not condo.  

 

florida has the most crazies anywhere.  needed to throw that in....

 

if i had to pick......i would start with San Antonio and a townhome.  

 

try to travel to places in Minnesota and Wisconsin....if you can handle the cold, might be a better quality of life.  my two cents....

Don’t tell your wife your moving into a mobile home that someone has died in , you want a spirit free home.

everywhere i moved was really nice and peaceful.   first austin,tx      then S.F.     then Chiangmai 30 years ago.      After i moved there each of these places grew like a cloud from an atomic bomb.

I will therefore have to refrain from saying where i will be moving next

Bob is most definatley not " Trailer Trash" we have some lovely trailer parks in the UK and I am sure that this is the type he is alluding to....there is no Trailer trash in the UK, but I have seen plenty of trailer parks in the states where the rednecks live and they are definately Trailer Trash
