The Cold, Hard Lessons of Mobile Home U.

“Don’t get too hung up on appearances,” Frank Rolfe reminded us as our tour bus made its way to the first of several trailer parks we would visit on a bright Saturday afternoon in Southern California. “Remember, you don’t have to live in these homes.”

It was Day 2 of Mobile Home University, an intensive, three-day course on how to strike it rich in the trailer-park business. Seventy-five or so students had signed up for the class, which Rolfe offers every other month in different places around the country. Most of the enrollees weren’t real estate speculators; they were jittery members of a hard-pressed middle class. They were nervous about retirement. Or they were worried about their jobs moving overseas. Or they were making $100,000 a year, maybe even $200,000, but felt the need to earn more. All of them, though, had somehow come to see the lowly mobile home as their vehicle to financial freedom. “It’s about self-preservation,” one 42-year-old attendee told me. He had flown down from San Francisco for the seminar because he hated his job selling health care plans.

SOLAR LAMP POST LIGHTING FOR MOBILE HOME PARKS

Solar lighting has been available for many years, but people often perceive its quality and brightness to be low. That’s not the case anymore, and solar lighting consumers should expect higher quality and brighter light from Gama Sonic.  If you’re in the market for a more sustainable lighting solution for your park, then the Imperial II solar lamp post light is a viable option.  There is no wiring or electricity required.

Several Mobile Home Parks, HOA’s, Apartment complex’s and even Cemeteries have  switched from electrical/gas to our Imperial II solar lamp posts,  replacing outdated or non-working fixtures, or adding new solar lights in areas where running or rerunning electrical wiring is cost prohibitive.

Power Use: Gama Sonic uses the highest quality components and more sophisticated electric boards to offer solar lights that are able to preserve 85-90% of the power they receive charging during the day, while the industry standard is only 50%. This results in you having more power to shine brighter and for a longer duration.

Brightness: Gama Sonic’s solar lighting solutions provide the same brightness you get from traditional lights. Special technology like the cone reflector helps to disperse light more efficiently and for longer periods of time.  Our Imperial II solar lamp is the brightest solar lamp post light available anywhere with a brightness of 350 lumens which is equivalent to an 80 W bulb.  The Imperial II is a Commercial Grade Solar Lamp manufactured using powdered cast-aluminum, 21 super bright LEDs, beveled glass, the lamp is maintenance free and has auto dusk to dawn operation.

Easy Installation: Gama Sonic Solar Lamp Posts can be easily installed anywhere outdoors without electrical wiring/trenching which saves you time and money and diminishes your carbon footprint.  Moreover, using our EZ anchor mounting system, you can install the Imperial II anywhere you like where the lamp will receive direct sunlight, eliminating the need to pour concrete.
