In 27 States, RV Horizons, Owner Of Mobile Home Parks, Exploits Poor
02 Jan 2019
Modified: 06:36:05 AM
RV Horizons owns trailer parks in 27 states and is pricegouging residents, unlawfully evicting, seizing assets illegally, charging for filthy water containing carcinogens, breaking the laws in some states with its percentage of rent increases and added on charges.

Based in Cedaredge CO, RV Horizons is the 6th largest owner of US trailer parks. Around the nation, residents are organizing and contacting
contacting
Cynthia H Coffman Colorado Attorney General, and Attorneys General of the following states: Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, New Mexico, Texas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Illinois.

As rent increases of 25% or more occur without notice, the poor cannot afford the sudden increase. Nor can they afford the money to haul their trailers to other parks.
RV Horizons seizes the trailers, secretly selling some, bulldozing others.
