‘Dead Presidents’ – Deal Making by Manufactured Housing Institute PAC Contributors, Starting with Big Communities Buys by RHP Properties and Ross H Partrich; plus MHVille REITs, Stocks Update


“Dead Presidents is a “street” term for cash money. Obviously, this is drawn from the images of the “dead” US Presidents found on most US Currency,” according to the Urban Dictionary. Investing Answers says: “In the finance world, dead presidents are slang for U.S. currency.” That second sources goes on to say the following. Following the “Dead Presidents” will be a look at RHP Properties, including two recent media releases that assert insights into dozens of manufactured home communities purchased by the firm that claims to be the largest privately held company in what some problematically call the ‘mobile home park’ investing space. This report will include Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary.


Dead Presidents

QuoteMarksLeftSideThe term comes from the pictures of the former U.S. presidents, all of whom are deceased, that appear on the face of American currency. Though presidents appear on U.S. coins, the term generally refers to paper currency. The presidents on U.S. bills are:

$1: George Washington
$2: Thomas Jefferson
$5: Abraham Lincoln
$10: Alexander Hamilton
$20: Andrew Jackson
$50: Ulysses S. Grant
$100: Benjamin Franklin (note: Benjamin Franklin was not a U.S. president)
$500: William McKinley
$1,000: Grover Cleveland
$5,000: James Madison
$10,000: Salmon P. Chase (note: Salmon P. Chase was not a U.S. president)
$100,000: Woodrow Wilson

More “Dead Presidents” are what numbers of manufactured housing deals are about.



Additional new homes in Wisconsin will address lack of affordable housing

QuoteMarksLeftSideFARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Sept. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — RHP Properties (RHP), the nation’s largest private owner and operator of manufactured home communities, has announced the acquisition of 50 manufactured home communities, including 41 communities in Wisconsin, seven in Minnesota, and two in Michigan, with plans to add over 500 new manufactured homes in the next five years.

“This acquisition will make a difference for thousands of Midwest families, seniors, and others feeling the squeeze of today’s housing market,” said Ross Partrich, CEO, RHP Properties. “By growing our portfolio and delivering 500 new homes we are reinforcing a central part of our mission to offer homes people can afford in safe, community-focused, and well-managed environments.”

RHP plans to spend over $7.5 million in the first 18 months of ownership on utility upgrades, roadwork, and amenity upgrades, such as playgrounds and parks to improve infrastructure and lifestyle. The addition of 500 homes will enable more families to enjoy the privacy of a single-family home and the energy efficient features and design of today’s manufactured home.

“We recognize all that Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan have to offer,” added Partrich. “Wisconsin’s commitment to economic development and its recent infrastructure investment positions cities across the state for a strong job market, and we’re excited to invest and participate in communities where residents have the opportunity to thrive.”

Founded in 1988, RHP Properties is the nation’s largest privately held owner and operator of manufactured home communities with managed assets of more than $6B, including 368 manufactured home communities nationwide, totaling about 79,585 homesites in 30 states. Headquartered in Farmington Hills, Michigan, RHP Properties employs more than 1,000 professionals. For more information visit www.rhp.com. … ##

Note that RHP is so large that they said “about” “79,585 homesites in 30 states.” Perhaps someone’s Excel spread sheet involved at the firm may be suspect of having a rounding or other error?

Just over 2 weeks prior to the above was this paid press release.



Sep 01, 2022, 07:00 ET

QuoteMarksLeftSideFARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., Sept. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — RHP Properties (RHP), the nation’s largest private owner and operator of manufactured home communities, has announced the acquisition of three manufactured home communities in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin including Gaslight Terrace, Green Meadows, and Lakeshore Terrace, with a total of 455 home sites.

The properties feature various amenities including a playground, picnic area, off street parking, RV storage, a fishing area with dock and fishing platform, and two lakes. There is nearby access to a variety of shopping, and proximity to Milwaukee, Appleton, and Green Bay provide for an easy commute to major cities.

“Our recent acquisitions in Fond du Lac add to our portfolio of affordable home communities in sought-after locations poised for job growth,” said Ross Partrich, CEO, RHP Properties. “We pride ourselves on creating well-maintained communities that fit the lifestyle and budget of residents and look forward to bringing our expertise here.”

RHP plans to invest in upgrades to the three communities, including clubhouse and playground improvements, as well as utility and road updates that will be completed over the first 18 months of ownership. RHP will also add new homes to the communities.

About RHP Properties

QuoteMarksLeftSideFounded in 1988, RHP Properties is the nation’s largest privately held owner and operator of manufactured home communities with managed assets of more than $6B, including 318 manufactured home communities nationwide, totaling about 74,353 homes in 30 states. Headquartered in Farmington Hills, Michigan, RHP Properties employs more than 1,000 professionals. For more information visit www.rhp.com. …”

Part of the apparent motivation for RHP to issue these press releases is this tagged on paragraph that was near the end of both paid media statements.

Quoting but not endorsing their release or claims: “RHP Properties specializes in, and continues to aggressively seek, acquisitions throughout the United States. Owners of manufactured home communities interested in selling to a highly experienced owner and operator should contact Joshua Mermell, senior vice president of acquisitions at 248-626-0737.”


Fred Neil’s Federal Comments Letter

Fred Neil is a manufactured home owner, an elected city official in Dover, Delaware and while a ‘senior’ he is active in manufactured home resident advocacy. For example, Neil periodically writes letters to editors and letters to public officials. In the report below is Neil’s take in which he rips RHP Properties by name as a firm that ‘gouges’ their own residents.

Fred Neil Rips “RHP Properties” “Private Equity Giants” “Gouge” Residents; “Bad Credit? No Problem” – Comments to FHFA on Duty To Serve Manufactured Home Financing as July 17th Deadline Approaches

Are Neil’s allegations a one off? Hardly.

According to Americans For Financial Reform (AFR), they published the following that named RHP along with several other firms. Note that these firms often include Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) members. RHP is also an MHI/National Communities Council (NCC) member operation. In the AFR article, the highlighting of RHP Properties was added by MHProNews so that readers could readily spot it.


Private Equity Threatens Manufactured Home Residents
New report details industry’s threat to communities needing low-cost housing

QuoteMarksLeftSideMany of the largest private equity and real estate investors in the world, managing more than $1.77 trillion in assets, have bought up manufactured home communities at a rapid pace and raised rents and fees sharply, posing a dramatic new threat to the economic security of millions of seniors, people with disabilities, families, and immigrants in need of low-cost housing, according to a new report.

The report, titled Private Equity Giants Converge on Manufactured Homes, also details how Fannie Mae, the U.S. government-controlled mortgage backer, has provided more than $1.5 billion in mortgages to support private equity-backed acquisitions of manufactured home communities.

“Private equity companies and predatory real estate investors are buying up mobile home communities, raising rents, and getting richer off the backs of poor people,” said Sabrina Ramirez, manufactured home resident from Palo Alto, California.

“The growing reach and impact of private equity in many parts of the housing market, and of the U.S. and global economy calls out for attention from lawmakers and regulators,” said Linda Jun, senior policy counsel, Americans for Financial Reform.

In most communities, homeowners own their dwellings, but the ground is privately held. For most residents, it is nearly impossible to move their homes, even though manufactured homes are commonly known as “mobile homes.” Real estate investment groups seized on this vulnerability and built a highly profitable business model with devastating effects on low-income seniors and families.

“In my community, my corporate owner has upped my costs by charging for water separately, passing on other fees, and increasing lot rent. That means sometimes I can’t buy groceries or put gas in my car or go to the doctor because I don’t have the copay,” said Pat Bohlen, resident of a TPG Capital-owed community in Urbana, Illinois.

The world’s largest private equity firms are now piling into the sector. “These firms invest capital from institutional investors into businesses, increase cash flow in a short-period of time, and sell the businesses or take them public through an IPO after four to six years,” explains Jim Baker, a researcher with the Private Equity Stakeholder Group. “Private equity investors are relying on manufactured home residents’ limited mobility to dramatically increase rents and fees with bare minimum investments in the communities.”

The private equity and institutional investors in manufactured homes covered in this report include:

  • YES! Communities – Stockbridge Capital, Government of Singapore Investment Co, Pennsylvania Public School Employees Retirement System
  • RHP Properties – Brookfield Asset Management
  • RV Horizons/ MHP Funds – TPG Capital
  • Inspire Communities – Apollo Global Management
  • Kingsley Management Company
  • Horizon Land Company – Federal Capital Partners/ Texas Employees Retirement System
  • Carlyle Group
  • Treehouse Communities – Blackstone Group
  • Carefree Communities – Centerbridge Capital

To demand action by corporate owners and government officials, residents of manufactured home communities across the country are organizing their neighbors, establishing resident associations, collaborating with tenants, and fighting to protect their homes and communities. ###


That AFR article was dated February 14, 2019. Within weeks, HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver reported inaccurately dubbed “Mobile Homes” aired and was posted on YouTube. That YouTube video went viral with millions of views. It is found at the link below which also unpacks the allegations and claims made.

Private Equity Stakeholders Project is shown in the screen capture above and is found at the link below. But it is only part of what John Oliver’s viral hit shows. https://www.manufacturedhomepronews.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/Private-Equity-GIants-Converge-on-Manufactured-Homes-PESP-MHAction-AFR-021419DailyBusinessNewsMHProNews.pdf

That Mobile and Manufactured Home Living News (MHLivingNews) report and analysis documented the point that virtually every one of those firms Oliver named or showed on screen had ties to the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) and/or the MHI National Communities Council (NCC or MHI/NCC).


Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

According to Open Secrets, RHP Properties In fairness to RHP, they also paid for media releases that announced their latest ‘philanthropic’ venture. Per their release: “RHP PROPERTIES PARTNERS WITH ADOPTACLASSROOM.ORG TO SUPPORT ARTURO CAMBEIRO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA.” The donation made by the firm which said it has managed assets of some $6 billion dollars? Per their statement: “$10,000 Donation will provide needed resources to promote academic success.” That 10K might be a lot to one of the millions of marginal families in the nation, some of which may call an RHP Property the location for their home. This is the mathematical formula for calculating the percentage of their holdings that donation represents.

10000/6000000000 = 0.00000166666. That less than 2 millionths of their stated assets. If the press release cost their firm, say $1,000, each are tax deductible for most savvy operations. For some person or household with $12,000 in total net worth, and there are millions in the U.S. that have that or less, the RHP donation is the equivalent of donating 2 cents.

This video below may have cost the firm a similar some to produce and then promote, which could have also been used as a tax-deductible business expense. RHP had YouTube turn off the comments on the date this report was made. Were the public comments eliminated it because there would be so many people who live in an RHP communities praising the firm?



Or is it more likely because RHP Properties fits the description of what MHI award-winner Marty Lavin, J.D., who blasted those taking part in a “witch’s brew” of ‘predatory practices’ – which seems more likely?

To shed more light on those questions above are the next items.

The flip side of the glowing video about themselves is this graphic compiled from information on that date from the Better Business Bureau website.

RHP rated an “F” at the date shown in 2022 according to the Better Business Bureau. Oops. Those pesky facts and pieces of evidence. Proud Member of MHI and collage elements are by MHProNews, but BBB information is per that organization. 
How is the narrative forging game in MHVille played? Attentive and regular readers of MHProNews know that MHInsider – first three letters are MHI – has on its masthead a clear indicator that MHInsider and MHI are tied at the hip. Try to find negative information on key MHI members, or MHI itself on the MHInsider website. Good luck. Perhaps that lack of objective news (think kiss ups) explains their low readership?

It is in that context that the following report comes into sharper focus about MHI, firms like RHP Properties, Havenpark Communities, and others that have been exposed by media reports and researchers as “predatory” brands or so called ‘vulture’ capitalists.

Legal researcher Samuel Strommen is among those who pointed to the obvious connections between the writers for MHInsider – which un-subtly begins with the first three letters MHI – and various MHI staff and key members. MHInsider, upon examination, is a little more than a house organ, trumpeting claims while ignoring any evidence that undermine their cheerleading arguably vacuous.

Publicly traded MHI member firm Cavco Industries (CVCO) recently admitted that there are ‘industry concerns’ (think MHI code words) about such allegations which they called ‘rare.’ Rare> Really? See the report linked below to get a sense of how un-rare (i.e.: commonplace) such allegations are in MHVille.

What helps explain the way the Dead Presidents system works at MHI?

According to Open Secrets, these are the individuals who contributed the most to the MHI PAC. Ross H Partrich with RHP properties has been highlighted to make it easier for readers and researchers to spot.

Per Open Secrets
Contributor Occupation Date of Contribution Amount
LONDON, KY 40744
AUSTIN, TX 78731
BLEVINS, BRAD MR Blevins, Inc 5/31/2022 $5,000
HODGES, THOMAS D MR Clayton 6/6/2022 $5,000
HOTCHKISS, RYAN B MR Horizon Land Co, LLC 5/26/2022 $5,000
LONDON, KY 40744
CLAYTON, KEVIN T MR CLAYTON 4/13/2021 $5,000
MCKEE, KEVIN D MR Manufactured Housing Institute 5/31/2022 $3,333
BLEVINS, BRAD MR BLEVINS, INC. 5/18/2021 $3,000


The Open Secrets list above appears to be the biggest donors for that period to the MHI PAC, which then trails off to $3333 and then 3K or pages of lower sums. Why doesn’t MHI apparently press their own so-called MHI/NCC “Code of Ethical Conduct” against RHP Properties or others like them? Isn’t the number of Dead Presidents involved part of the reason?

So, in looking at the bigger picture of how site-built housing has been sliding in recent months of 2022, and with affordable housing so much in demand, what explains the relative modest level of HUD Code manufactured home sales? While the causes are many, even MHInsider Darren Krolewski aptly summed up the issue.


Darren Krolewski, MHVillage-MHInsider ‘One Challenge is Not Enough Positive News About Manufactured Housing to Counter Negative’ News; Frank Rolfe, Brad Nelms ManufacturedHomes, George Allen, Kurt Kelley, Sunday Headlines Review – Facts & Analysis


Try to find that remark on MHInsider’s or MHVillage’s own website? Good luck with that. Per the screen capture of the search on this date (see images above)  reveals “no result” for that search of a statement made by MHVillage/MHInsider’s own Darren Krolewski.

But try a search on the glories of RHP Properties and a different outcome may appear. But why is it that none of the negative things about RHP is apparent on MHInsider? Could Open Secret’s mantra of follow the money shed light on that question?

There are some 37 pages of largely glowing articles about the wonders of MHI and MHI’s stand-up members who are praised by an MHI linked trade publication with the apparent purpose of making MHI and their backers glow. As Chris Plante might frame it, It’s like a circle fest in a Las Vegas hot tub.

  • Follow the money.
  • Pay more attention to what people do rather than what they say. Who advocated that mantra in MHVille? Long time MHI member and award winner Marty Lavin.
  • Despite MHI’s bold claim of working for ‘all segments’ of manufactured housing, consider Lavin’s pointed remark that MHI is an organization run by the ‘big boys’ and works for ‘the big boys.’

Rather, with quotes or other references, we apply the principle of separating the wheat from the chaff. There are good reasons to source insights and relevant comments across an array of topics and viewpoints.

Now, is it more apparent some of the reasons why manufactured housing connected equities, including REITs, broadly dropped yesterday? In times past, when conventional housing sales took a slid, manufactured housing sales often rose.

Give George Soros credit for this one. Open Secrets is connected to Soros, so while it tilts to his politics, most anyone with some savvy can use it to access contributions to PACs and politicians. PS: Soros has plenty of his own Dead Presidents. Doubt that his website needs yours?

To borrow from the late great radio star Paul Harvey – applying it to the insights above…”…and now you know the rest of the story.”

Prior to attempting and failing to buy MHProNews (we never entertained Krolewski’s stated interest), MHVillage launched their pro-MHI pub called – wow, what a surprise! – MHInsider he and his firm publicly praised MHProNews. See an example below.
MHProNews has invited MHVillage’s top people to respond to concerns and claims made against them, they have so far declined to comment.
