We live in a 940-sq-ft trailer in Laguna Beach: Take a look inside

When my husband Brian first told me he’s from Laguna Beach, it took everything in me to play it cool. “Oh, is that near Los Angeles?” I asked. 

Like most elder millennials, I knew exactly where Laguna Beach was. I’d seen every episode of the reality show (I was an LC with a Kristin haircut) and was a superfan of “The OC” to boot. (Seth and Summer forever!) 

I don’t know why I pretended. Turns out, Brian’s a Seth-and-Summer stan, too.

Luckily, we discovered a quirky little neighborhood tucked away in a picturesque canyon across the street from the ritziest hotel in town. It’s filled with mobile homes that sell for as little as $150,000.

Brian and I are no strangers to alternative abodes — we’d previously lived aboard a 46-foot motor yacht for three years — so the concept of a house on wheels didn’t intimidate us.

When you purchase a trailer in this mobile home community, the structure is yours but you rent the land it sits on. We decided…
