Louisville Interlude, Mystery Writers, & More

You are invited to plan and attend a Louisville (KY) Interlude! What’s an interlude? ‘A short time or performance between acts’, as in a play or other production. In the cases of manufactured housing in general, land lease communities in particular, it’ll be a scheduled opportunity, between consequences of the pandemic and fresh start to the year 2023, to identify, discuss, and plan how to deal with energy, land planning/zoning, and related issues ahead of all of us.

The Interlude will occur during the upcoming Louisville MHShow in KY, between 18 & 20 January 2023. The specific date, time and location will be announced in a near future blog posting.

In the meantime, here’s what you should do if interested in the present State of the Manufactured Housing Industry, and where we’ll be headed during the balance of year 2023. Sit down now and ponder (‘consider deeply’) the business, social, regulatory, and legislative matters that affect you most as a corporate executive or entrepreneur businessperson. While tempted to list a few of them here, I won’t – as I do not want to unduly influence your thinking and input to this end.

Once you’ve articulated said matters, issues, and concerns, send me an email message via; or better yet, prepare a file and attach it to aforementioned email. Also OK to mail a hard copy via USPS to GFA c/o Box # 47024, Indianapolis, IN., 46247.To best plan this Interlude, I’ll need your initial input on or before 1 November 2022; but if need be, it’s OK to send this or additional information during the months of November and December.

What has precipitated this manufactured housing interlude? If you read last week’s blog posting (#710), you know the recent 11th annual SECO conference identified and parsed some of the timely issues facing our industry and realty asset class.  The Interlude is a voluntary and public sequel to the yeoman service that occurred in Stone Mountain, GA.

Mystery Writers

A futuristic political thriller novel, authored by former community owner/operator Charles G. Irion, of AZ, will soon be released as an Amazon paperback, ebook & audiobook. Titled FOUR, this novel is the latest in Irion’s Summit Murder Mystery series & Murdered by Gods series, it describes the ‘next world war and what lies in its wake’.

I’ve read all Chuck’s books, even his tongue in cheek, ‘Roadkill Cooking for Campers’, as well as other titles. Where his mystery novels are concerned, they get better with each new release. While waiting for this new one, order a copy of ‘Murdered by Gods – Timbuktu’, from Amazon.

Another mystery writer – identified? I think so. Are you one of the unnamed recipients of a periodic online newsletter titled ‘The MHC Weekend’, penned by an unnamed writer? Research suggests the interesting, albeit opinionated compilation of trade press releases, is produced by Chris Ebert, CEO of Charlotte, NC – based, Six Rock Properties.


‘RVs as Affordable Housing’. That’s the working title of a yearlong project I’ve been invited to pursue by VISIONS academic magazine. The focus of the issue I’m writing for is ‘New Era for RV Consumers’.

So, what’s this project involve? Though still working on my writing outline, I know now I’ll be defining ‘affordable housing’, then identifying many ways RVs are now being used, legally and otherwise, as semi-permanent and permanent housing (e.g. Think entire RV rental communities in central Florida, as one example; and, in California, ADUs sited on privately-owned parcels of land already containing a house*1).

I’ve only just begun my research; so, if you have worthy input on this emerging trend, please send it my way via or if you have hard copy resources, mail to GFA c/o Box # 47024, Indianapolis, IN. 46247. Thank You!

The subject magazine will not be published until this time in year 2023.

End Note.
