E68 Retiring in a Manufactured Home in Florida
What images come to mind when you hear the terms trailer park or mobile home park? You may think of run-down communities with stray dogs and men walking sporting wife-beater tops. That stereotype is what led to the birth of the name “manufactured” homes and their communities. Many manufactured home communities in Florida have beautiful dwellings with fabulous amenities such as pools, gyms and pickle ball courts. Design a mid-century style manufactured home in your dream venue and you’ll be set. Find out more about manufactured homes in Florida with expert Russell Watson, on Episode 68 of Retire There with Gil & Gene.

My favorite podcast
So much valuable information you simply can’t find anywhere else. The interviews cover a lot of topics and are extremely helpful for retirees, who are interested in relocating.
I am a podcast enthusiast and have scoured the depths of Apple Podcasts for interesting content related to travel, financial literacy, philosophy, comedy, etc. Although I am not quite at retirement age or phase yet, this podcast has been such a nice addition to the queue. Gil and Gene are informed, funny, charming, naturally inquisitive, and they allow their guests the space to fully answer. This is really a travel podcast in retirement’s clothing. Keep up the great work! And I wonder where Gil and Gene will end up retiring to?
Real experiences, great resource
I just love this podcast because it is such a natural conversation between interesting people. You really get a sense of what it’s like to live in different places. I am learning quite a bit about what style of retirement I am interested in having and where. The overall theme is attitude, if you are positive- so will be your experiences. Research is important and this podcast is very helpful. I hope more retirees who have moved share their stories.
