Our Mission

OSTA is a nonprofit, grassroots organization that seeks direction from members, avoiding a top down approach, regarding decision-making on critical issues affecting members’ lifestyle choices, quality of life, and rights as residents in manufactured housing and floating home communities.

OSTA works to provide an expanding array of programs, information, and services to its members. It is an organization focused, not only on protecting the rights of home owners as residents in parks and marinas, but an organization that supports all aspects of manufactured and floating home living.

To enable this to happen we rely on members, teams, and colleagues, all across the state who support this common vision. This work requires time, investment and dedication to serve our 80,000+ residents and we rely solely on memberships and donations to achieve our goals.

What We Believe

Owning a home creates a foundation for health, family, and economic success, and preserving homeowner choice is a right.

Manufactured and floating homeowner tenants in parks and marinas should know about and understand their rights.

Park and marina residents and landlords must be accountable for following the laws.

Manufactured and floating home tenants must be allowed to assert their rights and be treated, in return, with dignity and respect.

The more we advocate for the rights of manufactured and floating homeowners, the more stability we add to our living situation.

It takes a village to bring about positive change and we are stronger together.




Act as if what you do makes a difference…it does.

William James, Philosopher

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

Margaret Mead, Anthropologist

We meet no ordinary people in our lives.

C. S. Lewis, Author
