Those things aren’t cheap.
If you go ‘cheap’, which is what I’d expect in this case...a trailer big enough for two folks, then you’d expend about $12k to $16k, each. Figure $1,500 for delivery costs and professional water/sanitation hook-up, and then you got a ‘camp’.
In this case, with the druggie crowd, the unit will be uninhabitable in about two years, and considered a toxic unit, which requires some state or local group to take it to a special place to be melted or burned.
Just my humble guess...virtually all of the 100 units will disposed off...in six years.
Only to add history here but after Hurricane Katrina, the FEMA folks bought thousands of these, and I think several hundred ended up at a huge parking lot in Arkansas, with issues (seem to remember mold and funny plastic fumes).
But I will add this one comment. The current California plan involves putting billions down to build state-sponsored housing, which will all turn into ghettos within five years. You could save 50-percent of that, by going to the RV trailer route, and just disposing of them in the same fashion.
No their not cheap...but these are apparently FeMa trailors....as the Gov sees this as a ‘disaster’.
They’re going to have difficulty sustaining this....esepcially if these people are druggies etc.
If I wanted to buy one on my own, $30k-$50k would do it. If I wanted 100 on my own I could probably get them for $20k-$25k. The state will pay more of course.
BUT, when the state puts up apartments for the homeless they cost $750k+ per unit.
Plus these are on wheels. When the lot they put them in fills with feces and needles they can just hook them up and rumble them off to some other location in need of instant degradation.
