Small-to-large manufactured home community (MHC) operations are no strangers to the ire of anti-investor activists.
MHAction is one such group. They’re seeking to grow their influence with MHC residents, media, policy advocates, regulatory and legislative bodies.
Part of their strategy is to use the news media to attack higher-profile MH business operations.
“Manufactured homeowners and residents across the country are outraged by the business practices of RV Horizons,” said MHAction in a public post by the group.
“RV Horizons Inc. owner Frank Rolfe thinks owning a manufactured home community is like, “a Waffle House where everyone is chained to the booths,” proclaims the group’s recent Facebook post, aimed at increasing the number who sign a petition for investigations of Rolfe and his partner’s business.
“If you live in a community owned by RV Horizons, and are concerned by their business practices, click to sign a petition asking state Attorney Generals to investigate,” MHAction says.
A new Masthead blog post outlines the facts that manufactured housing industry pros must grapple with in dealing with this new breed of media-savvy activists.
MHAction Disrupting Manufactured Housing Industry Business as Usual
MHProNews has previously interviewed Frank Rolfe about adverse press coverage he and his firm have received, one of those interviews with Rolfe is found at the link here.
A detailed, fact-based reaction to MHAction’s media-based attack on ELS is linked here.
For balance, MHProNews contacted MHAction, asking for details and specific questions about their operation – including the sources for their funding. As of this post’s publication time, with over a week since our inquiries, MHAction has not responded.
The Daily Business News will continue to monitor this and other such groups. ##
