Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
While building my hometown in the game, I searched high and low but couldn't find a realistic version of a trailer park. So I built one. This is the first of the the residential lots in my hometown re-creation series.

I myself have never lived in a mobile home, but some of my friends have, thus these "trailers" are re-creations of mobile homes that exist in reality. If they seem a bit off, it's probably because I haven't been in them in years so they were built from memory.

The lot includes 4 mobile homes (3 bedroom x 3/2 bedroom x 1) and all are fully furnished and decorated along with the rest of the lot. It also includes a main office, laundromat, arcade, pool, community garbage area, public mailbox, and run-down playground.

Late night markers for public areas and hidden rooms were used in all but one trailer, which is the main living area, coming in at a respectably cheap $22000. It's decorated as I saw it, in typical low-cost 1970s style. If you don't like that one, feel free to move the markers with the cheat (restrictbuildbuyinbuildings off/on) and choose a different unit. Make sure you use "testingcheatsenabled true" before using the building cheat. All of the real-life buildings had been built by 1984, so if you're looking for a period piece, this would fit right in

If you don't have Late Night installed (for the markers) the lot will cost around $220000. Handy if you prefer playing many families at one time on one lot! hehe

The pool is unsupervised, use at your own risk!

No custom content or store content was used in this lot. Game items only! huzzah!

Expansion packs used were: Pets, University Life, World Adventures, Late Night and Ambitions. No stuff packs were used.

As always, it has been fully play-tested (for the last year) but should you find any issues I missed please comment and let me know.

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
