They already have alligators in them . In fact some children next to me when I lived in Venice were fishing in the drainage retention pond ( lake ) and they snared a rather large alligator . They threw the pole down and ran.

Are there any lakes in Florida without alligators?

Just wondering.

So, fauna, checked. How about flora? What does it take to make the man-made pond look like a real natural lake?

We had some friends who lived for a short time in Florida. The house they rented had its back towards some swamp land. One afternoon, they suddenly realized that a child was missing. They ran down to the pond, but no sight of the kid was found. In their panic, they thought they saw (or was it their imagination) some ripples on the pond, and some bubbles coming up to the water surface. So, they thought that was it!

I do not remember where they found their child afterwards, but he was not near the pond. And I do not remember if they said they ever saw any alligator in that pond either.

I guess every state is different but as I recall, our "manufactured home" was not considered "real property" because we did not own the land on which it sat Every year we had to get new license plates for each of the two units (about $100 each). That's puts it in the category of mobile home. In Florida, it all depends on whether or not you own the land. DD has a very nice "manufactured home" on an acre of land that they own so they are then considered property owners. They get a bill every year for the taxes on the "property". Price has nothing to do with it. You can have a $5000 trailer on land you own and it is considered property. Our $150K manufactured home on land you rent is not property.

All I know is every time I see a motorhome towing a Jeep, I say, "Living the Dream"

Umm... Pardon me, but the OP was talking about mobile homes, which were really not all that mobile.

For motorhomes that can really move (it just takes gasoline, and gallons of it), and it seems like that tickles your fancy, let's join a thread like this recent one: Motorhome!.
