Manufactured Home Communities Giant RHP Properties Hit Hard by Company Insiders, plus Manufactured Home Investing, Stock Updates


There are several websites that provided employees, past and present, and opportunity to sound off on the company that they work for in a fashion that may avoid retaliation. Per 122 reviews on Indeed, the average rating is 2.5 out of 5. Glass Door’s update 4 days ago is only marginally better, 2.7 stars out of 90 ratings. In many grading systems, that would be a “D” grade, or perhaps a “C” grade.

That said, note that a 2018 Glass Door report gives that same firm 1 star out of a possible 5 star with 80 “votes.” That would be an “F” or failing grade in almost any grading system.

That is relevant for potentially several reasons. One is that some companies have reportedly learned how to ‘game the system’ of online and other ratings, as was highlighted in the mainstream media report linked below.




Similarly, Clayton Homes insider and employee feedback was carefully examined in the report linked below.




Earlier today, MHProNews reached out to RHP Properties senior leadership to give them an opportunity to respond to the recent allegations and claims made against them and some of their fellow Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) members.



As of 6:15 PM ET, there has been no official response.

But a source inside the company tells MHProNews that there have been ‘shock waves’ ripple through the firm, arguably due to the report linked above. NOTICE: MHProNews/MHLivingNews encourage company employees to AVOID using a company email address or cell phone for news tips. Why? Because it is not uncommon in the corporate surveillance state era to have emails checked for certain key words which may then reveal a whistleblower or tipster.

Another pair of examples reflect one of the likely reasons why MHProNews is followed carefully by industry professionals, manufactured home resident advocates, public officials in Washington, D.C. and at the state levels, investors, and others.

In these and numbers of other examples, MHProNews provides an opportunity for the sources reported on to respond. Some do, others do not. An example of one that responded is linked below. The quote and articles that follows it are an example of corporate leaders that responded.





If RHP responds to our inquiry, that can be part of a future report.  In the meantime, that report and the others shown stand  publicly unchallenged.
