We purchased our park model trailer for cash. We could only guesstimate our expenses. Now I can see how much they are. My goal of $860 a month (which I determined back in 2006) was pretty good!
All numbers are per month.
HOA dues = $58.33. This covers sewer, water, use of the lodge, road maintenance, etc.
Electricity = $110 in the winter, $20 in the summer. We use two electric space heaters during the cold months. Looking into a wood burning stove.
Propane = $37.50 for heat and cooking
Gasoline = $30 thanks to driving a Prius
Food = $400 since we dine out a lot and buy from the health food store. Can't grow anything w/o a hoop house.
Insurance (home, auto, health) = $308.33
